Desperate Housewives Losing sponsors

So I love Desperate Housewives and it now may have even more viewers. Tyson Foods, Lowe's Cos., and Kellogg have all decided not to buy any more air time during the hour long series. This of course could cause more people to tune in to see what all the fuss is about. I have to say I am a more conservative person and this show has no value expect for entertainment. But the great thing about this coutnry is that if you don't like it you change the channel and advertisers can pullout if they want to. And this show will end up on cable if nothing else becuase it is such a good show.

This happens all the time. I work for a TV station and there are a lot of very popular shows that get blacklisted by advertisers. Usually they are FOX shows including The Simpsons and Malcom in the Middle. I don't think ABC has had to deal with this in a while. The good thing is a shows success is not determined by advertisers attitudes but by ratings. If the ratings are there, other advertisers will be fighting to get on.

I always find it funny that these groups feel a need to police what other people want to watch. I agree with you that if you don't like a show, change the channel.

In the meantime...What do you think is in the box? :^)

ABC hasn't had a hit show in a while. I think the advertisers do it more for shows that are hits because that gets them more publicity too.

The box??!!? hmm... It has to do with murder, or is that too obvious. And what is up with the hot neighbor guy tracking everone on Wisteria Lane like he is a stalker. Tied to the box?
