To all advertisers on the TV channel HLN (Headline News), I hereby give you notice that due to the constant interruption, every minute or even less, of the ongoing trial that is being shown on TV right now (Arias Trial), I for one will never buy any of the products advertised on this station.
We get a minute or less of show and then 8 commercial ads in a row. After another minute or two of show, more breaks and more commercial ads, most times the same ones we just saw. I am so sick of this practice, and I have written to your station on a few occasions about this so far, that once this trial is over and there has been a verdict, I will NEVER watch your station ever again!
Thank you and please consider making some drastic changes in your programming – give the viewers longer periods of actual show and less periods of annoying ads. When I watch a recap of this trial on TruTV, there are much longer periods of the show but HLN not so… very very annoying.
And I’ll just bet I am not alone in these thoughts.
That’s my sentiment, and shame on you for thinking so little of your viewers to do this to them/us.
