Commercials and the Ruination of Television

A few weeks ago I tried to watch a show on the Cooking Channel. After 15 minutes of what seemed like one endless commercial, I gave up. Granted, my judgement was unscientific. Subjective.

So this Saturday I sat down with paper, pen ,and timer,and watched "The Little Paris Kitchen", with Rachel Khoo.

Here is what I watched:

17 minutes of Rachel Khoo cooking. 13 minutes of commercials. 20 different commercials in that 13. This was a break every 4-5 minutes.

And I watched all this on a service I am paying 100 dollars a month for.

I rest my case!
