View Full Version : CBS is Satan

Why do they go straight to commercials when the game before Duke runs long, while Duke is in the middle of game play, only to go to the game with 3 seconds before the first official's time out, and then show us more commercials?

That was definitely one of the most unconscionable ones of these time-slot slop-overs I've ever seen.

What I can't understand for the life of me is, when these networks pay SO much $$$ for these games, why do they attenuate their own product so horribly? How hard would it be to schedule games for 2:15?

Already sent my complaint in through their website. Hopefully they get many more.

They're not interested in the games, only in commercial time.

Right, but w/o the product, who watches commercials?

You guys are surprised by this? This is standard CBS operating procedure. Happens ALL the time in the first couple rounds of the tourney. Game A gets over, they go to commercial, come back to the talking heads who chat for a few minutes, just in time to take you to Game B, which is 30 seconds away from a TV timeout and more commercials.

This is hardly a new practice.
