Letters to the Editor

TV ads waste a lot of time

Do television commercials annoy anyone else as much as they do me?

They are so excessive, loud, annoying and ridiculous. Even foolish. It seems they are made by idiots, for idiots.

One day I watched to see exactly how many commercials there were in a one-hour drama. There were seven commercial breaks, with six to 14 separate commercials each, for a total of 71 commercial messages in that one hour.

Even worse, most of the TV stations go to breaks at the same time.

That has to be deliberate. You cannot get away from them.

I am so annoyed that I do not watch any of them. I get up and walk around the house, or wash the car.
