I have several little items that come in handy during commercials, or even during slow parts of a show...Thighmaster, jog trampoline, free weights, stability ball, WALL and FLOOR. Working in a bit of strength training isn't too hard!

I am a stay at home mother of two and in my house we have a one hour a day tv limit. The exception is if your exercising. So while I watch a half hour program I jog on the treadmill, or the gazelle, or do some strength training. Watching tv doesnt have to be mindless.
To help with this we have exercise equipment near the televisions, light dumbbells, balance ball, and resistance bands, as well as our treadmill, gazelle, and healthrider. Our family room is more like a home gym. Its helpful when the weather is too hot/cold/wet/whatever. 198
Not in a mood to strength train today or just don't like it at all? Get in front of the TV and start working out! Most of us spend a chunk of the day on the couch watching TV, so why not lift some weights during one of your shows?
You can use dumbbells, resistance bands, a stability ball, or even your own body weight. Check SparkPeople for a bunch of great exercises. I prefer exercising during a program that will keep me interested, but still focused enough to keep good form and stay safe.
