Pro­mos ap­palling

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

I am­sure there are many view­ers who share my an­noy­ance with the com­mer­cial net­works and their pro­mo­tions of new pro­grams. We are bom­barded with pro­mos ev­ery ad break. There are no re­stric­tions on the fre­quency of th­ese be­cause pro­mos are not clas­si­fied as ad­ver­tis­ing. It’s bad enough that we get this sat­u­ra­tion-type of pro­mo­tion, but the net­works— es­pe­cially Chan­nel 9— have the gall to also run fea­ture sto­ries for The Voice, The Block and Celebrity Ap­pren­tice on many of their live pro­grams. Th­ese shows are be­ing flogged on Today, Morn­ings and A Cur­rent Af­fair. This self­ind­ul­gence is a com­plete turn-off.
