Tonight while watching Heroes, NBC finally pulled my last nerve and broke the final straw.
It's bad enough that we've had to sit through the same type of obnoxious promos that are spreading across cable for shows like Bionic Woman, Friday Night Lights, Journeyman etc. while we are watching something else. Then we had to endure the animated lower third for Phenomenon three times during an hour for the past three weeks. Now they think it's okay to advertise NBC Universal theatrical releases in the lower third during their prime time shows.
It's time to tell them it's not okay. It's time to tell them that if they want to keep the new viewers that they've acquired by finally airing good quality shows like Heroes, Chuck, Friday Night Lights, The Office, 30 Rock and My name is Earl then they need to start treating the audience with respect. We choose to watch those shows and we can just as easily choose to watch something else.

NBC think it's okay to force advertising on us, so return the favor. If you have any junk mail put it in an envelope and send it to:NBCUNI.COM FEEDBACK
