  1. so the episode is what now an hour and 15 mins? as normal episodes are 40-45 mins, the extra 15 comes from adverts and shouldn't be counted in to the episodes

  2. I'll take it.

  3. I agree anonymous 6651 Waaaayyyy too many comercials as it is

  4. The finales are often aired with limited commercial breaks, so we might get lucky!

    Yes, about time they did this. My son and I have been saying for a long time we need extended shows once in a while, like LOST did every year. We'll take ANY additional time for this great show. Sure, more commercials, but we'll still get more show than if it was 60 min (to the naysayers that always show up with nothing positive to say). Peace.
