NBC = Nothing But Commercials!

OK...the routine around here is that when we wake up...and turn on the's WNBC's Today Show.   Yesterday we turned on the TV at about 7:45 AM and I noticed an incredible amount of commercials from that time until 8:00 AM!   I guesstimated about 20 or so commercials.   I couldn't believe it...and thought that perhaps it was a unique situation! when we woke up...about the same time...I grabbed a pen & paper (just out of curiosity) to see if yesterday's commercial deluge was unique.   It wasn't!   Same thing!   At about 7:46 AM the commercials started...and went practically non-stop until 8:00 AM.   21 commercials in all!   Unbelieveable!   Most of them ran about 30 seconds!   Here's today's (no pun intended) line-up!
