ME-TV commercials overrun TV programs

       Watching Charlie's Angels ep 1x08 today. 19m36sec into the show, a Senior Plan Life Insurance ad overlaid the Charlie's Angels program for 2 minutes. One of Charlie's Angels almost was killed by an exploding fake tennis ball during the two minute portion. How do I know? I had to track
down the episode on the internet and play it to find out what that stupid commercial overlaid. This has happened on previous episodes of Charlie's Angels as well as The Wild, Wild West and several other shows. I am about ready to give up watching ME-TV if this stupid policy decision continues.

Advertizing on MeTV is inserted by the local station that has put MeTV on one of their sub channels.  Not Comcast.  I was watching the same episode of Charlie's Angels and did not have the commercial.  Obviously, I am not on your cable system.
