I find it super annoying when the volume on a TV commercial is about 5 times as loud as the show you are watching. I'm fairly certain this is done on purpose. You have to turn up the volume to hear the dialog on a show then the commercial screams at you. The networks have started putting full episodes of some of their shows online with limited commercials in them that I've been checking out. Turns out they use this same volume blast tactic online as well. I applaud the effort to push content online, but am dissapointed by the fact that they use the same thing.
