This must be the some of the worst, most obtrusive advertising I’ve seen in a long time. Last night while watching Family Guy, TBS ran a lower-third banner ad, which paused the whole show, to draw attention to the advertisement. Seriously TBS? Pausing the programming to get in more ad time? This is a serious low, and turns me away from TBS even more – their other persistent annoyance is broadcasting a stretched 4:3 image as 16:9 on their HD channel. You can tell because the TBS Logo is always stretched out on the sides, and the whole image looks warped.. especially when panning.
