How Pepsi and Nike destroyed western culture
Variety television columnist Brian Lowry recently wrote an excellent commentary about commercials cutting into story on network television that should not be missed. I agree with his point so strongly that it I previously made it #1 on my list of Top Ten Problems with Television. I believe Lowry is correct to highlight how the effect is especially damaging to sitcoms, and to imply that the current downtrend it sitcom programming may find at least some of its cause in overabundance of commercials.Networks, the first one of you to cut the time given over to commercials will suddenly see a massive rush of viewers to your programming. You can then charge a premium for your commercials and product placement, satisfying both your audience AND the ever-growing corporations that are now your masters. It’ll work, I promise! Please try?
