I've seen that one. Never really understood it. It really does look like they are calling themselves the "Anizal Planet".

no, it stays for around 20-30 secs and it shows up a few, I'd say 5-6 times per half. However, if there's action, if you will, taking place "behind" that huge ad, we just don't see it!

I thought it was on all the time. Every time I turn it on that channel to see if it had changed it's always on. Maybe I just have bad time timing?

I do not understand that one at all. It makes less sense when you see the redesigned science channel logo, which I think is just perfect. Not so good on screen however, since it's huge and orange.

I expect Ken H. to remove the link soon, as one is not supposed to "self promote" web sites.

If you want to see screen shots, follow this link. Beside the thunbnails, the full sized images are linked to by the thumbnails. I have many more images to put up, and comments to go with them.

I think that CBS has now outdone their sibling. In order of network A-holes, IMHO, it is CBS - CW - NBC. I never thought there'd be the day that a network could be worse than The CW. For non-OTA channels, Sci-Fi HD is right up there in the top 5.

There's another one for you to do. NBC moved the bug to 4:3 safe on the HD feed AND the SD feed. The bug was 4:3 safe AND letterboxed on Conan last night.

I took one of the screenshots from Conan in HD and "simulated" SD letterboxing. This is how it actually looked. The bug was 4:3 safe on the letterbox feed.

I'll probably resume watching Fox Sports in Spanish next week, when the Copa Libertadores semifinal matches will start. I'll keep you posted and I might take a few more pictures.

Well, that didn't happen. NBC went and changed their schedule after TVGuide went to print. Gee, what a surprise there.

Anyone see Last Comic Standing Thursday night so NBC could "relaunch" their All-American Summer lineup a second time or the repeat tonight? They now have the annoying ad bug to the right of the peacock. In addition NBC is now "accommodating" their ad bug by reducing the size of the names to just the one side opposite of the ad bug. This is really annoying because you have to glance down at the bottom right hand corner to see the name and hometown of the comic performing and then glance back up to make sure you are missing something at the top of the screen.

Apparently NBC does not care about the viewers. It almost seems like they DO read forums like this one and then they do the opposite of what we want them to do. If that is the case they might as well do a Weather Plus type channel with video in one corner, an ad in one corner, and the name and phone numbers to call at the bottom of the screen. Just doing whatever it takes to get rid of the ad bug being embedded in the actual video of the program.

I love all of this on screen clutter, NBC!! Keep up the good work guys. I hope to see even more on screen next week. I think the bug is too small and the text should be larger.

Why can't all networks fill my screen with ads?

OK, I've added lots of images. Because there are so many images, I've actually had to create a whole new set of web pages, solely dedicated to this damn snipe issue.

You can find all of the images you want on my new snipes page. You are welcome to use as few, or as many, images as you want.

BTW, I love the one I got of Conan

"What do you say Beckett. Wanna have a baby?" - Castle to Det. Beckett

I updated the NBC Logo Wikipedia page to include information about the HD logo change.

mrvideo, is this photo an actual screenshot from a CW TV show? Did they really name the "treatment center" in their show after their boss?? That's too funny

The look on Conan's face is priceless!! What the hell is this s*** on my show!! "Late Night with who? Conan O'brian, NOT Nashville Star!!"
