Watched the Evening News today. I usually don’t, because I’m not quite 70 years old yet. There seemed to be more infomercials than ever. There was a cool looking leather clad wallet for only $19.99 (plus $7.99 shipping and handling). But wait, if you order now you get a second one free, plus an additional $7.99 shipping and handling. Then Fran Drescher hawking a lady privates shaver (head to toe!) for $12.99 plus $5.95 shipping and handling… And, you guessed it, a second one free, for only an additional $5.95 shipping and handling. What rock do these people live under? Have they never heard of Amazon? What kind of people still pay for shipping and handling? These ads are the lowest form of advertising. When you’re running the same ads that used to run at 3:00am then end is near. Today I wondered which network will be first to cancel the evening news.
