TBS Pauses Show Mid-Joke To Advertise?

Over at Broadband reports someone is saying that TBS has a new form of advertising where they actually pause the show mid-sentence to run an ad:

THEY PAUSED THE SHOW AT THE PUNCHLINE. Advertised their crap-ass made for the station show… then “Went back to the show” for another 10 seconds so the Joke could finish before going to regular commercials.

Oh I am so pissed.

Are they really doing this? Because that’s just absurd. Anyone got a YouTube or a screen shot? Thanks.
