Ah, I guess I was just thinking of NBC (and yes I don't remember TNT either).
Here's the thing: on this board it feels like long-time (and yes, older) fans lamenting long games and too many strikeouts and whatever else it is that makes the game less compelling to them than it was 10 years ago (or 20 years ago, or 50 years ago). But the people who want to see reforms are mostly concerned with attracting younger fans. The NFL cutting commercials is partly a response to streaming (since there are far fewer commercials, none on Netflix etc.) and shorter attention spans.
And as the Ringer article says:
To recap: Playoff baseball is significantly longer and slower-paced than regular-season baseball, with more mind-numbing delays, fewer balls in play, and less scoring. Add in later start times, and the playoffs are actively contributing to the perception that baseball is a boring slog that only an old could enjoy.
If the league wants its product to do more than attract true believers, the playoffs have to be friendlier to channel-flippers for whom four-hour games are a few innings too far.
