These things are damn annoying, moreso than Internet popups. I'm watching Smallville last week, and some plug for Supernatural COMING UP NEXT covers almost a third of the screen.
This is happening on most networks with alarming regularity. Destroy TV pop-up ads :mad:
 
yeah, I seen them and they piss me off, the ads are waaay too big
 
I hate it when the credits are rolling and they take over half the screen telling you whats going to happend next week, when you are trying to find out who a certain character was played by
 
when they take forever to to tell you whats up next week, some shows have it right after the credts some have it before some have ads and they will have like 5 min of ads and you miss the perveiw of next week.

I hate those adds. So Morg, don't know if you use it for regular tv or not, but do those type of adds hide closed captioning?
 
Fx has those ads, but they have sound effects with them, which make it worse.

Nope, the CC is over the ad so I still can see the words
