I, like, I think anyone who as been subjected to these fatuous gimmicks over enough time, has become so adept at dealing with them that the whole idea, like many media worn out conventions has become largely counter productive. If the program gets straight into the main theme I will stick with it.
Any of this kind of time-wasting nonsense and I immediately change channels. Life is too short. There are always other, more interesting programs running. TV people are always years behind in their thinking of what most viewers are actually doing.
When they take surveys their questions are always too simplistic to give them any really useful information.
Basically they are terrified of stepping outside of the current fashions. – With the exception of the French.
