What's up with the sudden commercial Breaks lately? Its like no ones letting the commentators know when they're coming. During the 6-man tag they went into it during one of JR's highspot orgasms. I noticed it a couple other times tonight. Did WWE piss off TNN or something?

I don't know, but I do know that if TNN wants to attract viewers to RAW, this ain't the way to do it (as far as commercial breaks go, that is-- I thought RAW was excellent, overall).

As it was, I knew the match wasn't going to be over anyway, because the table move was being blocked just as it went to commercial. But they should at least, you know, announce the commercial breaks in advance or something. Or better yet... say F-U to CSI, and stop trying to push it so damned hard!

Its either:
a) Kevin Dunn isn't properly communicating to the ring that the commercial is coming up.
b) They are trying to give it a non-crash TV feel to commercial breaks.
c) The random booking monkey and TNN executives had a falling out.

Right now, my money's on C.

I think it's (b). I just think they're trying to establish a "new" show to seperate it from the past. I don't mind it so much...adds a feeling of reality.

That could explain why they both began and ended the show with no music at all. Disconcerted me a little for a bit but it certainly did provide a new feel to the show.
