The real fear that Big TV has is that the audience will disappear (um, faster than it already is). Threaten us with less bad TV because you’ve ruined the advertising model with over-saturation? Yes, please.

This is not the first time networks have professed a belief that we are obligated to watch commercials nor the first time they have tried make it law.

It’s been an ongoing bone of contention since the first home VCRs.

The entertainment industry continues to insist it is somehow vital to our welfare, like water or food and it continues to run smack into the reality that it isn’t.
