You may already know this, but the average block of television programming is 1/3 commercials. One way to verify this is by watching a DVD of a series. One episode runs at about 40 minutes. But wait! Wasn't it on TV taking up a whole hour? That means that 20 of those 60 minutes were commercials!
So, if you are busy, but have some favorite shows, you could build your schedule around them. Or, you could DVR them to watch later. Take that one step further, and fast forward through the ads (like most people do). Then you'll be saving yourself and extra 1/3 of the time.
This is especially useful with movies. DVR the TBS version of "Gone With The Wind" and make it through in record time — only 47 hours!If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
