TV Networks Informative - 60 minute programs running overtime
For months the network TV stations have had their 60 minute programs run 62-67 minutes. ABC is the biggest culprit, though others do it too.
For instance I like to watch "Grey's Anatomy". But since it has been running 62 minutes I either have to miss the end of it, or miss the beginning of "Without a Trace on CBS". The idea is that you will stay with the first station.
Well, I have a solution:
I will tape the first program in its entirety. Then, when I play it back, I will fast-forward over all the commercials. I will also write to the sponsors, telling them what I am doing. I'm sure they will be delighted that they are spending the big bucks for their ads to have them not seen because of the greed of the networks.
If everyone who is as ticked off as I am would do the same thing, I am pretty sure the networks will go back to having 60 minute programs last 60 minutes
