I have a Pet Peeve

OK lately something has been irritating me, it may be insignificant in the grand scheme of things but I'm annoyed. Why late at night do cable channels like Lifetime, Food Network etc. run those awful infomercials? I hate infomercials! If I'm up in the middle of the night and turn on the TV I want to watch a real show not have Billy Mays screaming at me to buy Oxy Clean. We are paying for cable service, and paying a lot, why can't they run regular programming 24/7? They have channels dedicated to everything under the sun, why can't they have a dedicated infomercial channel for the people who do like to watch them?

because then they wouldn't be able to bug the CRAP out of you LOL. Kind of like commercials getting louder and louder when they come on

It does bug the CRAP out of me!! And you know I hate the LOUD commercials. All it does is make me mute it out not pay more attention to it.

I just realized this with West Wing, which appears to be on in the middle of the day while I'm working. TiVo or record your fave shows and then watch 'em in those wee hours. The Infomercial folks are buying up all those late hours because they are the cheapest hours to buy.
