I hear you! But, I also know that nothing is free. Right now, we have the luxury of skipping the commercials because advertisers are paying for the ability of those shows to air. Without advertisers dishing out money, then we'd have to pay to watch.
Hello Express10, It is a tough call, after all the advertisers are the customers of the networks too. They pay money for advertising time and the networks sell the time for that very purpose.
No doubt these are great points and without viewers there would be no networks.

Advertising attracts some of the most creative people around. Every now and then the agencies let them go wild. There's nothing wrong with enjoying their work.
I also hate ads and believe that the consumer's voice counts. The networks probably believe that if Dish gets it's way then they will lose (more) viewers. The stale networks don't allow consumers a choice in avoiding ads and don't want to change.
