I absolutely agree. I cannot stand the commercials. I don't need the 70+
channels I now have, let alone another hundred. Sheesh!

About all I watch on TV anymore is I Love Lucy, etc. on Nick@Nite - over a
bit o'dinner or while heavily into a Javascript project.

Okay, well, sometimes Jeopardy as well, but it's so full of ads, it's
unbelievable!

Even PBS is going the same route!

quality sucks!
