Channel 4 censured for running too many adverts during 'Lost' : When viewers settled down to watch Channel 4's blockbuster drama Lost , they were anticipating an hour of action and intrigue. What they got instead was almost 30 minutes of advertising, sponsor plugs, programme trailers and plot reminders. Viewers were so irritated at the frequency and duration of commercial breaks that many complained. Yesterday Channel 4 was lambasted by Ofcom, the media watchdog, for putting commercial breaks too close together in order to maximise advertising revenue.
