It's about time! TV commercials re to be quieter, starting this Thursday at midnight, commercials will legally have to be within two decibels of the programming during which they air. HALELU-YEAHHHHH. Oh, wait, at what point of the programming are we measuring from? Because I tend to watch a lot of action films where the dialogue is practically whispered and the they nuke the Large Hadron Collider or something with an extremely loud BOUHM and anything two decibels above that will likely shatter my windows.
Oh goodie, TV guide has an answer to my query.
