Default Television Show Marketing Ploys


Thanks for asking about Heroes.

I can Proudly say I have ever watched an episode of...


Desperate Housewives,

Prison Break (some people I know have Missed episodes and were asking everyone they knew if they'd Taped it!),

Lost (watched a couple of episodes a month or so ago, and they didn't grill my schnitzel),

Torchwood (a Doctor Who spin off named as an Anagram of Doctor Who - really getting pushed down here, so maybe it's not doing as well as they'd hoped),

Ally McBeal (sp?),

Dawson Creek,

Boston Public,

NYPD Blue,

Hill Street Blues,

BayWatch (is that even still going?)

And so on and so forth.

I have noticed something ALL the networks down here are now doing. And that is, running their shows a minute or two over time.

So say there is something you'd want to see which runs After Heroes. You flick to the channel at the Advertised Time only to see the Tail End of Heroes. A tricky ploy to try to get you Hooked in the show, as the tail end is always a Cliff Hanger end.

They do it not only on those Major series, but also the dumb soaps. And that means, Neighbours and Home & Away down here. As well as the so-called Current Affair shows - right where they tell you what they have on tomorrow.

Any other tricky ploys you see the networks doing?
