Won't Miss #88 - 10-15 minutes of commercials

On Japanese cable television, programs often end between 40 and 50 minutes past the hour for hour-long shows and 20 minutes past the hour for half-hour-long shows. We are then treated to 10 or 15 minutes of nothing but commercials or promotional ads for other programs. I like to watch T.V. while I exercise to alleviate the boredom of walking or pedaling in place, but this long sequence of commercials means that I have to time my exercise to start and end before I hit the long stretch of nothing.

I won't miss the extremely long spans of commercials.
