The networks gave up years ago and now the cable folks are wondering why their ratings are going in the tank. Of course their solution is to speed up the shows and more heavily edit a shoe to allow them to sneak in a few more commercials. I guess they don't know we already fast forward thru most of them although I will admit to watching a few that touch my funny bone. That damn goat in the peanut butter factory for one.
We have been commenting on something being different in the shows we usually watch knowing that something was going on , so now we know. Great shows like the Vikings is being chopped up so badly this year that it is hard to watch.
Netflix and Amazon and other streaming services are cutting into the purse strings of the networks and the cable guys. My satellite bill is over 200 a month and I still have to subscribe to Netflix and Amazon to find something to watch. The MSM part of tv is getting progressively worse year by year and editing and adding more commercials is not going to help them at all..
