I would like all of the commercials that involve any mention of bodily functions, any type of discharge from any orifice, talk of *** after menopause, weiner pills, side effects that take ten times as long to list as the benefit of the pills, or bears and toilet paper to be put on ONE channel that I could choose to watch if I want to see that stuff. Which I don't. Who should I contact to get this accomplished?

ASitting thru "weiner pill" (brilliant!) and absorbant panty liner commercials while watching TV with my 15 year old son, awkward.... at least put all the adult commercials on after 10pm, like they do for the adult chat lines. Great idea!

AHow about ads for funeral insurance....it's all they show in daytime TV, plus ads for adult diapers. Guess they have a specific target audience in mind!

This all happened around the same time that the Prozzies, who used to have enough sense to stay behind the walls with no windows on the outskirts of town, started working in their undies in barber shops, coffee shops, and restaurants all over town.  It was much more civilized when they stayed out of the public eye.

 

My girlfriends and I have discussed this public annoyance, along with the repulsive television nonsense, for years.  You're not the Lone Ranger on this one.

Athere was a commercial on the radio same time every day when I was driving home about how 'many many hours of performance duration' you can have -- i finally called the radio station and said i understand the necessity of advertising dollars but who exactly are you marketing to? i told them i turn the radio off every time i hear that mess and they changed the stupid commercial --

oh the good ole days of funeral insurance -- they now show a panoramic including the oven doors on the crematorium --

How about the one wishing you to have a happy period.   Should we send greeting cards every month.  Hallmark would make a killing on revenue.

What frightens me is somebody will see this as a marketing opportunity for "special" monthly cakes....you could lock in a dozen a year for each client - beats birthdays which only come once a year....

That sounds like something that I'd say.  But it's scientifically proven that chocolate is necessary to life itself....ambrosia so to speak.  Perhaps it's also the fountain of youth. :roll:

Oh, I have a non-cable tv in my kitchen, so I get the other category of "nuisance ads." The used car, title loans, sell-your-structured-settlement, for-profit trade schools, and class-action suit ads. I guess they figure the people who are home during the day are all sitting around, not being able to afford cable,  injured from their accidents and need fast money.

omg-- those structured settlement commercials are so aggravating -- the songs the costumes -- deliver me! thank goodness for mute buttons

ATwo months ago I cut the cable cords. I use a rooftop antenna and a roku. The structured settlement ads and attorney ads are annoying on my local channels. But even on Hulu you get the ads but I really like some of the auto maker ones. Especially the little girl in the back seat pretending to drive a race car! If I never see a wiener ad again I would be happy!

vldutoit ---oh yes yes yes -- you are a rock star!

 

i've read about this antenna thing and i'm so ready to pull the cable plug i'm just dallying in my ignorance -- do you mind relaying how you did the antenna -- and what kind of reception do you get-- what kind of channels? do any cable channels come through like the beloved golf channel (my husband loves golf) or just probably local channels huh? i've got the roku already --

 

but so you like it? do you have a recorder? can you operate more than one tv?

AI live in very rural East Texas,and ALL of my local channels come out of Shreveport, LA. I get about 12 or 15 non religious channels and another 6 or 8 religious ones on my a antenna. All of the major networks are represented. The Roku allow me to stream from internet to get movies and plethora of other "cable" type shows. The initial outlay was a couple hundred buck but I am no longer paying upwards of $150 pm to a company for stuff I get for free.I miss things like TLC and Food Network but I don't miss that bill. Roku will have options to purchase sport packages it might have something for Golf Channel. IDK though, football is my spoirt

that's good enough --oh well the golf channel is locked in tight with cable providers and you have to buy the upgraded $ervice too -- but we can get some golf on the major networks -- yes the cable bill is a joke-- i really need to get moving on this project -- thanks for the info!

AThat cable bill was just my cable no internet. We get our internet thru our landline phone. I had just got fed up with all the extra charges for the few channels we watched that were not on a basic tier.

us too same/same -- and all the home phone is good for is robo calls  -- i got a magic jack but never installed it -- i know i'm bad but i was concerned that at&t would up the internet charge anyhow so idk -- but i do want my own antenna -- even with a little yearly upkeep it's worlds cheaper than cable

So we're all with you here; no one wants to see people bleed, blow their noses, pick their toenails, sport a woody, clean their hooches, or visit 'Smiling Bob'.

I am surprised m tv is still standing, I have been tempted to throw a brick at it so many times.  Hunker down, the politics ads are being planned…

I rather hear about weiner pills than loser politicians…although…:D
