I should probably add that in the tv-department I think of myself as very
spoiled. I'm used to no commercials at all. I have two completely ad free
channels (Denmark's Radio 1 & 2) and three more that are only allowed to
show ads between shows, not during (TV-2, TV-2 Zulu & TV-2 Charlie). These
are funded by a mandatory tv license (if you have a tv you pay). Thus I
have quality programming (they are required to do all kinds of things or
their licenses will get revoked).

Of course this also means that when I watch "60 Minutes" it's only 40-45
minutes because I don't see the ads. Watching "24" was also a bit funny
because the "real time" aspect disappears when you see those clocks
counting down before the ad break and then immediately after you see them
counting down again (because the ad break never occured) – only three
minutes magically disappeared!
