During the Olympic opening ceremonies, NBC apparently stands for Nothing But Commercials.

Viewers took to Twitter to slam the network’s frequent commercial breaks Friday night.

Matt Drudge even weighed in, tweeting, “5 commercial breaks in first 30 minutes??!! Send some mosquitoes into the NBC booth!” deftly referring to the Zika outbreak in Brazil.

Others were equally as irritated:

Mediaite notes the first 40 minutes of the Opening Ceremonies included 14 minutes of commercials during six different breaks.

    Latest Polls Inaccurate, Primary Model Shows Certainty of Trump Winning Election is 87 Percent

    Helmut Norpoth writes for the PrimaryModel.com that the likelihood of Trump winning is 87 percent based on a “statistical model that relies on presidential primaries [going back to 1912] and an election cycle as predictors of the vote in the general election.”

    WOW! TRUMP GOT OWNED BY OBAMA!!!

    “Obama also criticized Trump for claiming that the election will be rigged with over three months until election day.
    “I think all of us have some parts in our lives have played sports or maybe just played in a schoolyard or a sandbox and sometimes folks if they lose they start complaining they got cheated, but I’ve never heard of someone being cheated before the game was over or before the score was even tallied,” Obama said.
    He added: “My suggestion would be go out there and try to win the election. If Mr. Trump is up 10 or 15 points on Election Day and ends up losing then he can raise some questions. But that doesn’t seem to be the case at the moment.”

      Trump by a landslide, bitches.

    Thieves, Zika, and sewage in Rio aren’t the only ones ruining the Olympics.

  • RetardintheWH

    Obama is sticking his nose into the election because he doesn’t want Trump to know what he was doing in the WH.

      FUCK

      YOU

      Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has surged to a 15-point lead over reeling, gaffe-plagued Republican Donald Trump, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
      Clinton made strong gains with two constituencies crucial to a Republican victory – whites and men – while scoring important gains among fellow Democrats, the poll found.
      Clinton not only went up, but Trump also went down. Clinton now has a 48-33 percent lead, a huge turnaround from her narrow 42-39 advantage last month.

    I have become so tired of commercials that I have basically stopped watching television except for premium channels that don’t have commercials. I now just watch Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu( I pay extra for no commercials) etc. TV programming has been taken over by a constant onslaught of useless and repetitive commercials, and they happen so often that I feel like I am watching more commercials than I am of the actual show. Commercials have got to be 35%-45% of programming time for anything on TV today, and it is just not worth it. It’s like having someone in the car with you who constantly hits the “scan” button on the radio so you can never focus in on one thing to listen too. Advertising has killed television for me.

  • JesusIsGay

    I am gay and brown and you pray to me. Trump also likes me because I am gay and your gay god.

    Amazing how long it takes for the average Joe or Jane to get “fed up”. I cancelled my cable more than 10 years ago. I have no patience for the commercials at all! I found myself constantly switching channels when a commercial came on and then would move on to something else only to switch again. The programming is repetitive with minimal new material and most is of very low quality with politically correct themes, agendas and unrealistic silly nonsense. News is selectively reported against a politically motivated agenda and of course spun to the same agenda. The media is truly a waste of time, I am much happier without the TV and the children are better off too!

    • BruddahNui

      Remember when they started cable the point was to pay a monthly fee for commercial free tv?

      • Will Killyou

        That’s right! NO COMMERCIALS! I remember very well!

    Modern TV – I have cancelled my cable service and use my HD antenna on the balcony – at least the broadcasted stupidity is FREE!!!

  • Greg Butler

    Hey, somebody has to help pay Chelsea Clinton’s $50K+ per month mortgage. NBC has Bill Clinton dna all over it.

    The alphabet networks occasionally interrupt commercials with programming.

  • Kay Rosson

    I cut the cord. No more commercials

  • OV

    Excessive TV commercials have ruined TV as a viable form of entertainment. Also, the commercial content itself is ridiculous. You’d think our nation is mostly black. While every ad is a techno music explosion at twice the volume.

    • lincolnlincolnlincoln

      correction: you would think our nation is upper middle class black, yes it is noticeable and a complete disgusting joke

    The BS about “Global Warming” P*SSED ME OFF!!!!
    NONE OF THEM…… Not the “Weather Channel”, not NASA, not our government and DEFINITELY not the United Nations will admit what OUR OWN WEATHER SATELLITES have been telling us!!!!
    While CO2 levels have continued to rise (because of CHINA and OTHER developing countries) the GLOBAL temperature has been virtually FLAT…….

    FOR NEARLY NINETEEN YEARS!!!!!!!!!

    REAL and HONEST climate scientists KNOW FOR A FACT that CO2 DOES NOT DRIVE TEMPERATURES!!!!!
    Even Al Gore’s two graphs, that he used in his INFAMOUS movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, would have shown us this If he HAD overlapped hem and zoomed in ANYWHERE!!!!
    IF he had, everyone would have seen that the Earth’s temperature would rise FIRST and then and ONLY then would the level of CO2 rise.

    The time between temperature rise and subsequent CO2 rise was EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE!!!!

    He wasn’t lying when he implied that the two graphs were interrelated.

    He just didn’t want us to know in what way.

    He’s a weasel and a charlatan who has become a multi, MULTI-MILLIONAIRE from the CA BON SCAM!!!!

    He and others in on this scam SHOULD BE IN PRISON!!!!!

    I’ve been DVRing than starting to watch about 2 hours in. Once you cut the commercials and all the back stories, you got about 30 minutes of actual competition.
