    Here's Exactly Why Watching TV Has Gotten So Annoying

    Your favorite shows are getting crammed with more and more commercials. New data from Nielsen show that the number of ads per hour of TV programming is at an all-time high.

    Commercials comprised 14 minutes and 15 seconds of each hour of TV on broadcast networks in 2013, up from 13 minutes and 25 seconds in 2009, according to Nielsen's annual Advertising and Audiences report. On cable, commercials are even more frequent, totalling 15 minutes and 38 seconds of each hour. Commercials on cable took 14 minutes and 27 seconds of each hour in 2009.

    More ads have predictably led to more money for the TV industry. Total ad spending in 2013 reached $78 billion, up from $64 billion in 2009. However, the rate of growth is slowing, and individual commercials have become less valuable as the TV-watching audience has gotten more fragmented. The average 30-second primetime commercial cost $7,800 in 2013, down from $8,900 in 2009.

    Shorter commercials are also becoming more common, according to Nielsen. In 2009, 35 percent of TV ads were 15-second units. By 2013 the number had climbed to 44 percent as 30-second ads declined in popularity. Today even ads as short as six seconds are being broadcast by experimental marketers.Nielsen’s study also revealed that Thursday night “Must-See TV” is pretty much dead. 112 million people watch primetime TV on Thursdays. Only Friday and Saturday are less popular days for TV. Sunday, thanks to the popularity of NFL football and hit dramas like AMC’s The Walking Dead, is now TV’s biggest night, with 125 million people tuning in on average.

    Yeah I hear you loud and clear. I'm beyond sick and fed up with commercials. Watching TV less and less. I do like sports. The NCAA basketball tournament was exciting as usual. I did like The Walking Dead but it is beginning to drag on for too long. I'm just curious to see how it ends, and I want to see Negan die big time. Hope he dies as violently as he made others die violently. Maybe a group of zombies or King Ezekiel's tiger will munch him to shreds. Hate that dude. Post-apocalyptic Stalin or Hitler. Psychotic delusions of grandeur. Sorry to ramble on about the Walking Dead but it is very interesting.

    Nobody in their right minds < 70 years old watches Televitz any longer.
    Just torrent the dumb shows, or use Kodi.

    No ads, no interruptions, no worries.

    Don't pay money to the jew media machine.
