"A new interactive study that uses set-top boxes to monitor second-by-second airing of TV commercials has shown that TV consumers tire easily of traditional five-week-long TV advertising campaigns.

After two weeks of watching commercials, viewers generally become fatigued, said Weinblatt. The remedy? Give them more interesting commercials."
