So many times I'm watching a show and then BOOM! A COMMERCIAL COMES ON SO LOUD I DROP MY DORITOS!!! Looks like others have noticed too and now regulations are ready to be enforced.
On Tuesday, the FCC passed a set of regulations that will prevent commercials from being louder than the shows around them. It's all part of the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (or CALM) Act, which President Obama signed into law last December. The rules go into effect
