KTTV seems to be running videotaped reruns ("Alice," "Three's Company") through a gizmo that plays them faster so they can stick in extra commercials, making the pictures jump on the screen when anyone moves. This technique makes an otherwise good picture very distracting. Commercials, of course, are played at regular speeds.
