Looks like Calvin is sitting in a smoke bomb.
We are still working on a attention span thats very short .
Calvins attention span is very short, too!!
And now, 20 years later, we have Twitter.
I just watched a programme made by the Biography Channel. With far fewer adbreaks on European TV, we were made more aware of the way the public apparently has to be reminded of what they were watching in the US after each one. There’d be a freeze-frame and then they’d sum it all up again…three or four times.
I tried watchingthe Indy car race yesterday having added ESPN to my viewing package. There were eight ads in the first twenty five minutes. This was followed by sn ad about every four minutes with the ad break lasting the same length of time. I cancelled the ESPN package at the end of the race. Ive never seen worse tv apart from British soaps. At least the formula one race was shown ad free as always.
What were we talking about, again?
What’s your point? Nvm, I think I smell bacon. Gtg!
Sorry. Wasn’t bacon. Toast was burning.
Attention span sounds like an oxymoron.
Where’s my toast?Oh yeah. Nvm.
Hobbes is so right. The average American can only wait about 15 minutes before they get impatient.
He may have a short attention span, but he’s got quite a vocabulary for a six year old.
Is that why you have “Prof” as part of your name?
Maybe it’s age, but if I truly try to watch all of the commercials during a break, I simply can’t remember what I’ve seen. Too many, too fast, too diverse. I swear I have seen ads from competing car manufacturers during the same break! Makes me want to rush out to my Ford dealer because I like the new Malibu Quad-Cab…..I really, really like “The Big Bang Theory”, but it seems, repeat, seems, to have the most commercials during it break. I don’t watch much TV though, and no sports at all.
Actually, it’s been shown that the north american attention span is much shorter than in some other nations. Something about the pace of life being slower, and people taking more time to appreciate things there.
They don’t have it here in S. Europe.
Calvin’s attention span primarily covers only his own thoughts, words and actions.
All TV I watch is pre-recorded and I fast forward through commercials. The DVR or TIVO box is the greatest invention of the century.
Ba da bing!
Hahahahaha… I always love the ‘jumping TV’ effect!
Did you say something, Hobbes?
The formula one race I watched yesterday had ads with it, Tog. The stuff going on in the pits made the race, IMHO…television = bubblegum for the mind…
Having read everyone’s comments, this is what I understood: “I’m looks an we Calvin’s and American why whoa I I what why 2nd what’s sorry attention where’s hobbes he this TBS is very maybe they actually you what they ignore I’d in Calvin’s all I ba ha did when same you I the…”-Is that what you meant? Sorry, where was I?
Dry! I’m Canadian but that was still kinda uh…
Really this just goes to show that….squirrel!
Ever watch (or try to watch) PBS during begging season?
