Depends on the parish. The confession line at a Latin Mass parish is usually gigantic. I've shown up over two hours before the early morning Mass and there were already three people ahead of me. Very common on First Fridays/ Saturdays. People who are following a very precise reading of the requirements for the Grace offered, go to confession on that day. Eventually it becomes a matter of who wants it badly enough to endure the wait.

Happily, some Novus Ordo parishes also have big lines of confession, usually during weekdays before the noon Mass.

It gives me great joy to say this, even in churches exactly like that cartoon, it's usually a reflection of the parishioners, not the priest. Most pastors, even at big, "hip" Novus Ordo parishes, are essentially devout men, loyal servants of God, who take sacrament of confession (aka "reconcilliation") seriously. They give good, heartfelt counsel. This is particularly true in those churches where someone going to confession is something of a rarity. The confessor is genuinely delighted someone actually showed up for a change!
