I used to have the same problem as you actually, but experimented with the audio preferences and all
is fine now in every TV show / movie and even commercial I watch.
But the bad audio you speak of is when they do a crappy job on the mixing audio levels for dialogue and effects together. There is a preference in many of the TVs today where it'll enhance dialogue and tone down the effects.
Commercials are horrible with this because their budget tends to be very low so the dropouts are huge.
