The way things are going, it won't be too long before commercial time will be more than actual programming time!! I was noticing a week or so ago during a movie that the commercials are now between 4 and 5 minutes long and the program sessions aren't much longer than that. Here is some info I got from concerning commercials and the Daytona 500 yesterday:
