Channel Flipping

When I watch TV it seems that there are two or three programs on at the same time that I would like to watch.   Not movies or dramas where you need to stay focused on the storyline, but reality shows or how-to shows where you can miss a few moments and not get lost when you come back to it.   So what I do is I flip between channels when one program goes into commercial.   It seems though that TV executives have figured this out so now all programs tend to be on the same commercial schedule.   I find it frustrating when flipping channels that everyone is showing commercials at the same time.   So now I look for the channels with the best commercials.   It’s hard to choose among commercials about incontinence supplies, diamond jewelry, auto insurance, paper towels and mobile phones.   Instead I go check my email.
