CALM Act Passed (AKA no more loud TV commercials)

This was the bill that basically makes it so that any commercial on TV cannot be louder than the average loudness of the show it was aired in.

The way it used to work was that commercials couldn't be louder than the loudest portion of a show. Well if you think about a show's normal volume gun shots or super tense music could get really loud but only for a moment and then back to normal levels. Commercials would set their volume to the maximum allowed because that is how loud the show 'could be.'

This bill will fix that and once Obama signs it within a year we should start noticing less noisy commercials on TV.
