Made 'ya look.
While visiting Whitefish this week, we collapsed on our bed in our room after skiing and watched the evening news on the Montana NBC station. I was interested that nearly all (or maybe all, I didn't keep track until after I had been watching for a while) of the ads were for cars and trucks. On Seattle stations almost all of the ads are for drugs (Farxiga, Walgreens prescriptions, Alegra-D, Salonpas. That's just one commercial break. Nothing else was promoted.)
I must admit, I would watch the news more if it wasn't for all of the drug ads. Car ads are only slightly annoying to me.
I can come up with some reasons for this discrepancy like cost of time and viewer demographics, but for nearly ALL of the commercials (outside of those for programming) to be the same, and to be so different between two places? That seems odd.
