Giant “lower third” TV graphics!

giant lower third graphics

No biggie, I didn’t want to actually WATCH the show I was watching. In fact, I would much rather watch the cute little animation of the Whorewives of Whoreville dance around like whores, getting their whore juice all over my TV. I would also like to thank you for reminding me what program I am currently watching. Sometimes I’ll be watching “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” but until my TV tells me I’m watching “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” I think I am watching The McLaughlin Group.

    i was seriously going to ask you to rant on this for me.

    i can’t stand when i’m watching me some fantastic civil war special on the history channel and the left half of my screen is eaten up by f*cking ICE ROAD TRUCKERS.

    I’ve seen them put them over shows with subtitles, wtf?

    Now I dont have tv (just watch DVD’s, I’ll choose what I watch thank you) but they were starting to do that shit 2 years ago when I still did, is it realy that large now? Or did you just amp it up to make a point. Cause that is like half the screen, ridiculous

    Sara – Yeah, when they cover up their own graphics or subtitle with promo crap it is ridiculous. I will admit to creating that graphic for hilariousness.

    I give it another couple of months before they get that big. Maybe soon they’ll start flashing .10 second pictures to subliminaly make you wonder why you have a hankerin’ to watch the Kardashians do mundane shit.

    (note: I had to go to E!’s website to find a stupid show to reference. E! ‘s tag line should just be “idiots doing mundane shit”)

    Sara – E! sucks except for The Soup.

    i KNEW you watched the soup.

    When I visit my grandma I stick around untill 11pm so I can watch the soup on her cable. She’s always like “why are you still here? I’m going to bed? I need to take my fiber pills”

    then when she’s gone I drink her whiskey and watch the soup, ever notice they make fun of E! shows more then anything?

    The Soup is fantastic. So are fiber pills with whiskey.

    I hate that as well,ESPECIALLY when I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant! comes on. That show is fantastic!

    freaking saturation – too much of a good thing.

    i remember watching the NFL as a kid – the ’10 Minute Ticker’ was awesome, since you didnt have to wait until the post-game to see if the division rivals won. i mean, scores updated EVERY 10 MINUTES!

    people today take everything for granted, yet want more and more…and bitch about paying for these luxuries.

    i am holier than thou, yes.

    This post just made me laugh out loud. I mean, what the hell? They don’t even let us watch the show we tuned in for anymore.

    Ken Sumka recommended your blog, and I have to say, right on! I may need to add this to my blog roll. I agree with you on … oh, everything.

    Jodi – Thanks, I am great!

    Another reason why music is better than TV. No annoying lower third graphic.

    Oh god, the tears of rage that well up in my eyes when ‘House of Payne’ is announced violently across whatever show I am watching. Why do they hate us so much? Why?
