"The Walking Dead" on AMC HD

It's been a while since I clocked a show on ABC, but I seem to recall they run a commercial break 6 times per hour, it's like 5 to 7 mins of show and then they punt to a commercial break.
I didn't count the individual ads, life's way too short for that, but my guess is that there was probably close to 40 to 50 ads total during those breaks.
Is it me or do the episodes on Netflix seem a couple minutes longer?
