TV networks are now running fewer commercials
To compete with streaming services
So what networks are taking out the ax? According to Ad Age, Fox Networks Group will cut commercials by 40% during prime-time Saturday night run. For hit shows such as 'Family Guy' and 'The Simpsons,' the network will include short commercial bursts that will have two spots and be under a minute long.
NBC Universal is also reducing their on-air advertising dramatically. The network plans to cut commercials in about 50 original prime-time shows by 20% and reduce the run time by 10%, according to Ad Age.
Only time will tell if these advertising cuts will have audiences picking up the remote.
