They are cutting out some of my favorite parts of Andy Griffith to make room for commercials.

They are cutting out some of my favorite parts of Andy Griffith to make room for commercials

Several years ago, I was watching one of the old I Love Lucy programs [and I know most of them by heart, since I have seen them so many times].

One this particular one, early in the program there was an exchange between Fred and Lucy. It got cut to make room for commercials.

At the end of the program, another exchange happened between Fred and Lucy, but it was meaningless -- because it was dependent on the previous exchange -- which had now been cut out.

Those old programs had about 28 minutes of content. New 'half-hour' programs have about 21 minutes of content. If they try to put a 28-minute content, they must cut. When they cut, they lose something that was essential to the original 28-minute program.

But, the network philosophy is that 'content' is the filler between commercials.

I hear you. The additional commercials have pretty much driven me away from network and cable TV. I've got most of my favorite shows on DVD now, commercial-free.
