Some Cable Channels Are Cutting Back On TV Commercials

It’s common knowledge that there are more commercials during TV programs than there used to be.

While adding a few seconds here or there hasn’t been all that noticeable, there are a few channels that are pretty bad offenders, with commercial breaks running as long as 8-10 minutes.

Now one prominent TV programmer has decided to cut back on ads. Viacom, which owns TV Land, MTV, Nickelodeon and several other channels, recently announced that the various channels will be giving less commercials per hour a shot.
