The people in charge of TV programming think we are all a bunch of stupid fucking assholes. They think we are easily manipulated into doing or watching whatever shit they put on. And here's the proof.

One show I watch is The Walking Dead. It's a pretty good show. So good that it has several huge web sites and net pages devoted to it. And there is also a one hour long show AFTER the Walking Dead called the Talking Dead where the just aired episode is reviewed and discussed in detail. This show is also entertaining and, as it airs right after the Walking Dead episode, I usually watch it too.
So where's the TV manipulation? Here it is.
The Walking Dead network also has this other show called "Into the Badlands". This show is a stinking piece of trash about a dystopian society run by casts of ninjas and other jackasses. Its an hour long shit fest of violence and CG (so the actors don't actually have to do any martial arts moves). The plot is almost non-existent and whatever dialog there is sucks more wind than the actors trying to look like they are really doing the moves. So how does the network promote this lousy show and get people to watch it? Like this.
Right after the Walking Dead airs, the Talking Dead should air next. But no. Halfway through the season, the network airs Into the Badlands right after the Walking Dead. Then they put the Talking Dead on AFTER the shit show. They do this in the hopes that we sheep will all stay right on that station and watch a garbage show while waiting to watch The Talking Dead. Thereby increasing the audience share of the shit show enough to sell more ad time to the sponsors.

TV networks think we are all such mindless idiots that we have not yet figured out what the fucking remote is for. They think we'll all just patiently sit through a crap show until the one we want to watch is on an hour later. Get a clue TV network shit heads! Most of the stuff advertised at those times is expensive, high end shit. People who can afford that shit usually have high paying jobs. Which usually means they are educated enough to know they are being manipulated. So what's the fucking point of doing this and insulting us all? NONE!!!
When I see blatantly insulting manipulation of this type, I just write a little note to some of the sponsors explaining why I will not be buying any products advertised on the shitty show, and maybe not even on the good show because I don't like having my intelligence insulted. Don't know it this does any good, but it helps me blow off steam. And it keeps the post office in business.
KPissed - Speaking of the post office makes me think they should have a new spin-off to the Walking Dead called the Working Dead. Post office, Walmart, DMV, etc. for casting calls.

    This shit pisses me off too...

    I rarely watch tv, but one thing i switch on for is the Moto GP coverage. Our australian network host (darryl beadie) is an absolute fuckwit, promoting his own shit during moto gp airtime. It's only allocated time for free practice / qualifying highlights and general rider info before the race starts, but yeh,, we'd all rather listen to this fuckwit talk about himself. grrr.

    "After this break we'll go racing" - THESE adverts are all darryl beadies featured garbage. His tours, insurance, bike manufacturers, etc,, all appear in this advert slot. Finally back to live moto gp coverage where this guy talks about himself for another 10minutes,, then blatantly lie's to the camera again by saying "after the break we'll go racing right to the end". Another 7 minutes of his self promoting adverts before the race actually begins. grrr. Halfway through the 40 minute race, we get regular (non darryl beadie) adverts, for 7 minutes. This is when i'm exposed to the latest local marketing tactics - like the term "tripple garunteed"... WTF?... I've never even heard of 'double garunteed' products, but tripple garunteed?,, sheeesh.

    Anyway, fuck tv,,

    Mangled, we had a "news" reporter ass hat here who promoted himself right out of a job.

    Apparently, he thought the regular news was too boring (just a few more neighborhood murders, same old war, that kind of shit), so he made shit up. Apparently there were a few people out there who were not brain dead and realized he was shitting us and turned him in. But the station let him back on again in a "venue where credibility has less impact on the content of the program as seen by viewers". Who the hell views the fucking program but viewers anyway? Sponsors? Maybe they like it when there products are shown in a manner where "credibility has less impact" on potential customers?

    The whole damn country, starting with the media, is going to hell in a hand basket anyway. How do you glorify a whore like Kim Kardashian and give her a TV show that little girls everywhere watch and admire her. For fucking another man, while she was married to one guy, and getting knocked up by him, then becoming a new idol, for us all to look up to. As seen on TV.

    KPissed - Who see so much slant in the news that I sometimes think I must be Chinese.
