Statistics (I believe from TiVo) say that something like 40% of
commercials get watched, regardless of commercial skipping.

As it happens, my sister (who's the primary pilot of this box) still
isn't happy with the reliability of commercial detection, marks shows
by hand -- she can commercial mark a 60 minute drama in about 3

There's a bunch of good shooting and writing on commercials these days,
believe it or not, guys.
