Dear TV stations,
how dare you interrupt our advertisement viewing with snippets of "real" programs.
Sincerely yours, disgruntled watcher.
Week after week, our TV Guide has letters from viewers who are not happy with the number of advertisements disrupting our programs, whether they be weekly series or actual movies.
For years now, the TV stations have ignored these.
So.....maybe the above statement will get their attention.
I'm even more annoyed with previews of reality programs that run on for so long I feel as if I've watched a complete episode.
Yes, I understand that advertising pays for our viewing, but most of what we see is old stuff. Repeats of repeats of repeats.....
Surely that can't cost too much?
Maybe they could show an entire episode of something and then have a full half hour of advertisements, before showing a whole movie, then another section of ads.
They do it for the Home Shopping program, which is just one gigantic advertisement running for how many hours?
