I've never seen that activity on youtube, but I've got you tube enhancer plus installed as a firefox addon and it changes what you see there entirely. NO commercials what so ever, download many choices of resolution for play later with VLC or ????, and much more that I've never even looked into.
Not really surprising that these stalwarts are taking their final bow, it was a long, long time ago they made that show. Not my favorite by far, but far better than what was on the other channels 98% of ANY time it was on, so I wound up watching most of them. Love/hate thing with it definitely, but then it was carefully crafted just for that purpose. Hate being played like that, and at the same time pretty good entertainment when #1 doesn't have you spitting mad. They got my goat plenty and I still won't watch some of them.
