Infomercials take prime time slots

Last Saturday night, I was in my usual multi-tasking mode. I responded to email while watching TV. When I looked up between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., I became confused by what I saw and checked the time. I was looking at an infomercial, and it wasn't a cable channel.

I wondered if I were in another dimension. As it turns out, I was not. A New York Times story confirmed what I didn't want to believe - that infomercials have made their way into network prime time. It seems that the economy now influences what we see on television.
