    Preferred subjective length of TV programs

    When watching really good TV programs, do they seem long or short? If a program really keeps you on the edge of your seat, it usually seems at the end that it took forever(even though it was probably only an hour). When watching certain other shows(funny ones, mostly), they seem very, very short.

    Which shows do you like better?
    All generalizations are false

    The good ones are always longer. That's because they have my undivided attention. If I'm watching something I don't like, I change the channel. I have a short attention span. I think you're
    right about the comedy, though. A good comedy seems shorter than a good drama. I don't have the faintest clue why.

    No. Wait. Don't hang up!

    This is America calling!

    I like longer TV shows better, because I enjoy them more. BTW, does anybody get the joke in my name?
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    i m a terribly restless guy which is why i switch channels whenever there are advertisements....so i usually watch soccer; no unwanted advt's for 45 minutes atleast (I love the game ofcourse)...or else it has to be a really good movie to keep me in the same channel...


    cheers,
    I don't wait for the future; it comes soon enough.
