Just realized last night that I'll no longer be watching "Aliens In America" on CW anymore too. Which I'm assuming will also mean bye bye to "Reaper" when it comes back on later this week as well.... Morons! Just when they had gotten me into the CW fold they f*ck it up and drive me away... C'est la vie.
CW has potential to be competitive to ABC, NBC, or FOX on other nights than Friday but the ad bugs aren't doing them any favors. Makes them look like they are still a new network just starting to learn the ropes.
ABC seems to be improving this Sunday night. During The Big Give and the Newlywed show they showed the Dancing with the Stars bug but only for a few seconds after each commercial break which is much better than having the ad bug during the entire show like they have been doing lately.
But NBC is by far still the worst of the 3 broadcast networks who put the episode length ad bugs on. They put that ad bug on during every entire show shown during prime time unless it is their own news program like DATELINE NBC. And that is only to protect their journalism credibility which one has to wonder if they have one anymore. Showing clips of their SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE skits on NBC NEWS programs isn't news in my opinion. If you are going to show SNL skits on the news, then you better had start showing MAD TV, DAILY SHOW, etc.
GE NBC has to be one of the most unregulated companies in the country now.
