A number of my favorite CBS shows as well as a number of other shows continue to put ads at the bottom of the screen while we're trying to watch our programs. Currently an hour long show lasts 43 minutes and this is shrinking. These TV popups or snipes as NBC calls them. They air during the programs we pay a lot of money for them. During NCIS:LA they had snipes for the new show called ROB. This is not only annoying but disrupting. At what point do we get to watch our shows in peace? If you ever watch shows on Discover you will see them all the time. During American Chopper Paul Sr. and Jr. pop up during the show. Mike Rowe pops up during his show. The guy on Sons of Guns pops up shooting his guns. If you watch TNT just before The Closer's new season comes on you will see Brenda Lee walk under a crime scene tape. At what point do we get to watch our shows. When you watch the Indy 500 ESPN has this thing called side by side. What's the point in purchasing a large HDTV when they shrink the screen to run TV ads? They also do this during NASCAR. It's called Non-stop NASCAR then. The Weather Channel used do a lower left squeezeback to show their local on the 8's. You could hardly see the hot weather channel babes. Soon we won't be able to watch TV if the networks have their way. I wonder if it will ever end?
