Email generally has a "Spam Folder" that unwanted advertisements go into...and you never see them. TV needs to present the same technology for when the signal of your TV changes into "Commercial Mode"...the screen goes Blank. But then again...when you are viewing sports events coverage...the screen will go blank every 2 minutes for 5 to 7 minutes!
Of course...you can always press the "Mute" button. Works every time in our house :-)
PS: Just how many car commercials can there be?!!!!
