I wonder what would happen if the world dropped ads for one day.

Yeah, that's definitely not gunna happen. And they fill up like 20% of TV time. So in between shows will it just be a black screen?

No. No black screen. Instead, there will be no intermission at all. Gotta go potty? Tough luck, kid! Hope you have DVR!

Then we'd need more shows, cause no show is exactly 30 minutes/60 minutes.

That's the thing: To hell with 30 minute increment time frames. Just cram as much good shows as possible on each station, and let the good times roll.

Yeah but we don't have enough good shows to fill all that time. We'd just have a million re-runs.

I'm sure there's plenty of cancelled shows from the 90's, 80's, etc. that we could throw in.

Shmeh. I don't even mind ads on TV that much. Some of them are a little funny, and the rest give me time to do stuff between the show. Just internet ads and signs are annoying.

You brought up commercials though. >_>

I have DVR so I don't mind them that much either. But when I'm watching sports, I don't really mind them because I just surf the Internet while I wait. I hate the same kind of ads you do.

I only brought TV up when you said get rid of all ads. And I was sort of defending them, saying that wouldn't work. I don't have fancy tape TV show crap but I don't watch TV much anyways.
