Running local commercials over programs

Running local commercials over programs

I subscribe to Xfinity HD television service, and I live in Franklin, Indiana. I am a big sports fan, and I enjoy watching the Indiana Pacers play on the Fox Sports Midwest channel (FSMW). But, I am really sick of the local commercials Xfinity runs that are not timed right. When a set of commercials come on, it seems that there are local commercials inserted over the second-half of the commercial break that run over the top of the game when it resumes for approx. 8 to 10 seconds, because these local commercials start 8 to 10 seconds late (the network's commercial can be seen for a few seconds before the local commercial starts). It may not seem like much, but when the program resumes and someone is saying something I have no idea what the beginning of their sentence was. I guess what I am complaining about is the timing of these commercials.... why can't they be made to end when the program resumes, instead of afterward? It's been going on for a few years now, and it is extremely annoying. Can't someone get the timing of them right?
