The folks at WVII-TV in Bangor, Maine must be idiots. My lovely wife Rowan and I were trying to watch the two-hour season finale of Lost last night, and those goobers kept putting advertising on the bottom of the screen.
I don't mind advertising. I've got it on my blog. But their advertising at times overlay the opening cast and production credits. I'm sure J.J. Abrams wouldn't be amused.
Each ad banner would say something like, "The finale is being sponsored by...." and would list two local businesses. Usually the second business's name was cut off by the bottom of the television screen. I sure hope those second businesses didn't pay too much for their ads, compared to the first businesses.
