Is there anything more annoying than a commercial that pops up on the bottom of your television screen while you’re watching a movie or a show? You can see this marketing debacle all over network TV, but the biggest offender these days has got to be TBS and their shameless promotion of the Bill Engvall Show.
Forget about just sitting back and watching an episode of Family Guy any more. The marketing geniuses at TBS actually PAUSE the show to allow Bill Engvall to talk for 15 seconds about his new show. Then the bastards have the unmitigated gall to say, “Back to the show,” before the show unpauses and we get literally 2 seconds of crap before going to commercial. If TBS was ever looking for a way to get their fans to hate them – they found it!
This is a horrible trend and I hope some television executives get a chance to read this post because this BS has to end…now!
