Commercials over TV shows

Why does Comcast play commercials over the TV shows? After the commercial is done playing it goes back to a show that has been running for the last 30 seconds while that commercial has been running. Why not just insert the commercial over other commercials that were playing instead of waiting for the show to come back on to put another one in?

It's a mis-timed commercial insert. I've seen that on Comedy Central watching "Drunk History". It's usually been the last commercial break where they insert one too many.

But no one at Comcast or the station cares to fix this?

Would this be a local issue or a national issue? I had to call Comcast when my local facility had TBS coming out of only the right speaker years ago.
