Why Jerry Seinfeld May Sound Like Alvin and the Chipmunks

By Nottheworstnews @NotTheWorstNews

CNBC reports that certain cable networks that air reruns of Seinfeld have allegedly sped up the episodes by 7%, to make room for more commercials.

So if you thought Jerry sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks, it’s not your imagination or obsession with Simon and Theodore.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

1. Don’t networks know that people are fast-forwarding the commercials? Perhaps the answer is yes, which is why they are kinda fast-forwarding the show. Perhaps some dumb exec said “Let’s make the entire experience faster!”

2. Hey, don’t networks realize that people want to watch stuff on demand, without commercials? Maybe time for network execs to fast forward their business models to accommodate this instead of TV shows.

3. When will someone speed up every comedy on the CBS Network? At least if shows like Two And A Half Men and Big Bang Theory were over with quicker, we’d long less for the days of smart, original comedy like Seinfeld.
