Maybe they're just overloaded with car ads & have no other place to put 
them.  It seems that every car dealer is buying huge ad schedules 
lately.  My guess is that sales are weak and dealers are stuck with lots of 
leftover 2003s and are anxious to unload them.  Have you counted the # of 
Toyota ads/hr on WBZ?
