They really have this figured out. Now they air these shows in an hour and a half. When the show first came out, it was an hour show. Now the show is played over 90 minutes. This gives a lot more time for advertisements. These TV shows are 35 years old. Geezers like me are watching them. There are a lot of advertisements… Read the rest
