Well, I'm not completely sure, but what I think is that the TV shows that are on are on because the company of commercials that pay for it. Like, you know on YTV there's always commercials of Toy products, Cleaning products, Food products, Restaurant commercials and many more? And how they always seem to repeat, even once or twice every commercial? Well, showing commercials during shows pays for the shows. That's why TV was sort of invented for commercials. I hope this helped! :D *-*
