Does cable news have a lot of commercials?
It sure does. A commercial every 3 to 4 minutes. My sense is that many cable news are more than 1/4th consisting of ads. I could be interested in watching them but stopped watching.

They could run a ten minute news program, and use the rest of the half hour doing commercials, so that people could tend to their business at home, while the commercials are on.
