Ok, so I'm watching the first episode of the World Series of Pop Culture. And it's relatively amusing, though I'm not sure it's thrilling enough to keep my attention for many (or any?) future episodes. But you know what's dumb, VH1?
What's dumb is raising the suspense, saying "Will Laurie make a comeback and bring her team to victory? Stay tuned!" and then first thing on the commercial break, announce the next episode by saying "Velvet Rope Revolution and PDX 503 advance to the quarterfinals! Who will win?"
...which, in effect, means no, Laurie does not, in fact, make a comeback, and leaves me highly disinclined to watch the rest of your commercials (or the finale of the show). Idiots. I would write your PR department a strongly worded letter, but I don't think I can bring myself to care that strongly. *rolls eyes*
edited to add: holy craaaaaap the new sbemail is funny...
