Its become an epidemic. I appreciate that Sky , in particular, have to prmote their shows but they really flog it to death at the beginning of ad breaks and just before the return to the programme. Its now become a major irritant and is, as someone said, filler to pad out the hour. Its use in programmes where they tell you whats coming up is dumbed down TV at its worse. I now never watch any Sky or ITV etc program without Sky+. Wonder if the advertisers know this as I suspect that large volumes of Sky+ customers do the same. More program, less filler please.
The way they flog popular programs in those slots is even worse. WE KNOW WHEN ITS NEXT ON YOU MUPPETS.
On a similar thing the pregnant pauses and eye wandering before Cheryl Cole tells the act on X Factor if they've made or not is comical. Not picking on her but instead of creating drama it looks like they're about to have a stroke. Cheryl...we know and they know..as you know who's made it before you talk to them. Tell the producers to stop it, its facile.
