Falstaff

Finding Nemo

This evening ABC is showing Finding Nemo. Now www.imdb.com lists this movie's run time at 100min. ABC is showing the movie in a THREE HOUR (180 min) time slot???????

Eighty minutes of commercials. That is ridiculous..not to mention unconscionable.
No wonder viewing of broadcast TV is declining....

That amonuts to 26 minutes of commercials per hour??? The long plugs for WALL-E are commercials.

Isn't there some sort of requirement that you can't have more that 16 minutes of commercials per hour?
