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, , and several other channels, recently announced that the various channels will be giving less commercials per hour a shot.
