Curious to know if other people are watching less television, due in main to the amount of advertising. It is not only the all too frequent interuption, but the fact that so many adverts are repetitive and far too long. Those with a social/community message – mental health, road safety, etc., due to the number of times screened, for me reach saturation point, and I mentally switch off.July 24, 2008 at 11:11 pm #328591

I don’t watch a lot of television Doris, but when
I do, I aways have a crossword puzzle or a codebreaker puzzle on my knee and when the adverts. come on the screen, I concentrate on the puzzle. So, what I am saying is that I switch off all advertisments. Sometimes I miss bits of the actual program that I was watching because I forget to switch back on in time!December 26, 2009 at 9:56 pm #328593

I don’t watch a lot of tv but if something is on that I want to watch,then I put up with the ads. I can use ad time to get things done. I don’t think that the ads attract me to the products that they are advertising.January 16, 2010 at 5:24 pm #328595

I don’t like it when they play the same silly commercial twice in a row, or over and over in the course of an hour-long programme. I get up and make a cuppa or do the dishes or other small tasks till the commercial break is over. Sometimes I’m surprised what I can get done in a three or four- minute time slot!June 6, 2010 at 3:44 pm #328597

I love the mute button.
I rarely watch ads unless something `special’ leaps out at me and I’ll see what it’s about.
I hate the blaring music, shouting and silly antics of the people in them.
Sometimes you can’t even work out what is being advertised! 😀
I record a lot of stuff and watch it when I want. That way I can whiz through the advertising. 😉
It cracks me up too, that the drink/drive messages are always played at a time when those who need to see the message are out boozing!
