30 minute sitcoms vs 1 hour (or more programming)

I prefer shows that are at least an hour long. I only watch one or two 30 minuets shows. Big Bang Theory and Big Time Rush. Go ahead and judge. Their antics amuse me!

I like 30 minute shows better, I just find it hard to sit through a whole hour show, exp since now we just record things and skip all of the commercials. I think it would be cooler if more shows were more like kids shows where they could just have multiple smaller episodes play at one time instead of hour shows. I think this would work exp well for some sitcoms that doesn't really have the same theme every time and is more like you get a different message in every episode.

When it's shows besides sitcoms sometimes it's better to have hour long episodes like when it's dramas, reality tv shows, and a few others because it's more of a "to be continued" type of thing. I'm not sure this makes any sense at all....sorry =(

It depends on the show. I get how they do that to break the stories up. Even the 10 minute Adult Swim episodes make sense due to the bursts of insanity most of their shows are.

I prefer hour long shows, since they're mostly dramas, because I think I get more into the characters and situations. Plus, they are much shorter when fast forwarding through the commercials

I enjoy them both. As long as the story is good, I'll watch the show.

Sitcoms are good at both 30 minutes and an hour. For longer ones, I prefer a bit more depth and less silly

I do not really care wither way. As long as the show is funny and well written, it could be any time length. I do think that dramas should be at least 1 hour long.

30 isn't really long considering all the dang commercials. I'd actually prefer longer ones, especially of my favorites shows!

This would have been my exact answer. Although, I watch a couple 30 min shows on HBO and it's not so bad. You actually get around 28 mins of show since there are no commercials.

Both are fine, but I find I'm drawn more to hour long dramas these days (been watching Elementary, Hannibal, and waiting for Breaking Bad to return), but I enjoy some half hour comedies too!! Especially It's Always Sunny and Portlandia.
