Weekends for me usually involve watching TV shows that keep me informed, get me thinking, and sometimes get me riled up.
Chris Hayes has a fairly new show on MSNBC that airs on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It’s a great show, and he features lots of smart people.
I tend to get a bit riled up, but not because of the discussions. (Okay-sometimes because of the discussions.) It’s the commercials, and they seem to happen every 7 minutes or so.
And, Chris breaks away for them right smack dab in the middle of a great discussion.
It’s interruption marketing at it’s worst, and I’m at the point at which I’ll either;
A. Quit watching the show
B. DVR the darn thing, so I can skip through the commercials.
I understand ad revenue. There must be another option though. It’s ruining the show.
