Lack of time
Posted by on
I called in to vote for a half hour and kept getting, "you're call can not go through" and when I didn't get the message I got the busy signal. In the final weeks of competition, l/2 hour to call in is not enough time to hear from the viewers. The station should make arrangements with the phone company to add additional phone lines if limit is one-half hour.

Family TV
Posted by on
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- I was watching WITH MY DAUGHTERS, an episode of americas funniest home videos, the episode that air at 7:30 Nov. 20 Atlant GA affiliate.

The winner was the barker family ut that was not the issue. the issue I have is where a clip was shown of a little boy with a toy rubber snake, hanging out of his drawers, while he "humped" a door! this WAS NOTFAMILY TV.

That's hilarious! I could see one of my kids doing that.

I say this to anyone who has issues with TV, if you don't like what you see, change the channel!

Sorry that is funny. Toddlers don't know that what they are doing is "dirty" all they know is that it feels good. Younger kids (elementary school age) have a vague idea as to what they are doing, but usually do it for a reaction. When people laugh they continue. Hell, even adults do it from time to time for a laugh. Get over it and change the channel.

ABC has gone so seedy that it can't even seem to put on a supposedly wholesome family show without edgy, off-color or subtley sexual humor. I have been a fan of America's Funniest Home video's for years because of its wholesome good clean fun. This last season is a tremendous disappointment. 30 clips of "ball"-crushing accidents is one thing, but showing men, women and children in their underwear, bras and a bathing suits popping off, and children innocently doing sexually suggestive stunts is beyond the pale of family programming. For heaven's sake, the host of the show can't even talk to a toddler sucking on his mike without making crude remarks. This show needs to decide if it's for adults or children--it can't be both at once. If for adults, then it should be moved to the adult programming hour, not at 7:00. If for children, show some restraint, for heaven's sake. You guys have so many edgy shows on, allow us a show or two of good wholesome fun, without the trash please!

Shows Broadcast in Spanish
Posted by on
Three times now, I have been watching a t.v. show such as Grey's Anatomy or Desperate Housewives, and it is in Spanish! I was really looking forward to the Grey's Anatomy season finale, but I could not understand it! Doesn't anyone from the station oversee what is being broadcast?

The only time I have gotten anything in Spanish is a commercial. I'd be willing to bet you had your SAP turned on.
FoggyOne on 2007-06-22:
Were you watching it in a Spanish speaking country - Mexico, Spain, Argentina, etc? Otherwise, it seems to be a user problem.
rnick821 on 2007-06-22:
Have you ever heard of the SAP feature? I guess it has something to do with shows being overdubed in Spanish.

jazmine on 2007-06-28:
Only the show was in Spanish, the commericials were in English. So the SAP was not on. If the telemundo channel had been on, I think I would have realized, especially since it is on a completely different channel.

I will no longer be watching anything on their network, due to the non-renewal of Isaiah Washington's contract. The cast will just not be the same.

Are you guys seriously for real? I don't even watch tv that much. I have other things in my life to get me by. I was just making a comment about how that would be just one more show that I would not be watching. I wasn't aiming for juvenile, but I guess I got it.
bill on 2007-06-09:
"I was just making a comment about how that would be just one more show that I would not be watching" No that's not what you said. You said "I will no longer be watching anything on their network, due to the non-renewal of Isaiah Washington's contract" There is a big difference between not watching the show and not watching anything on that network.

I am protesting your new adoption reality show!
Posted by on
I am outraged and furious that you and 20/20 are planning to do an adoption reality show in which 4 pairs of adoptive parents fight for a baby. That will cause adults to think that they can treat children, especially infants, like furniture and garbage. What will that poor infant be thinking? Will that show encourage adults that it is OK to abuse children and get rid of them like garbage? I AM VERY UPSET!!!

I have to agree with you, mj; I haven't heard this yet. If this show goes on the air, then I will boycott ABC (which happens to be my favorite station).
bill on 2004-04-28:
Five couples comepte to adopt a baby. Barbara Walters said, on 20/20, that it will come down to "a nerve-racking elimination round." I find this very very distasteful.
Slimjim on 2004-04-28:
Im with all of you (except fedup/LaWRence). How disgusting to pass off the seriousness, emotions and commitment of adoption as entertainment.
Roger&Out on 2004-04-28:
Totally tasteless!! If they want the ratings to soar on this they better get Regis involved!!
Paul Pickle 6969 on 2004-04-28:
In case you didn't know, this is a FREE COUNTRY. There are no restrictions against television producers airing this program, just as there are no restrictions that force you to watch it. Turn off your TV and spend your time doing something else, like organizing your sock drawer.
dvsmadcow on 2004-04-28:
I agree with all of you (excluding the retarded one, of course)! But paul makes the best, and most sarcastic, point...it IS a FREE COUNTRY where we reside. we have a CHOICE! So if this sick show makes its way to the tv, let abc know about how sick it makes us! This is our CHOICE as outraged Americans that wish to see less garbage on tv! this is just my 3 cents, though!
Slimjim on 2004-04-28:
Paul and Madcow make legit points, and no, I'll will not be watching it. If the show is as in poor taste as expected, the losers will be 20/20. Their rep will take a hit and we'll see the "worth it" factor in the ratings.
cableguy on 2004-04-29:
I will grant that it is disgusting but if you don't like it, don't watch it.
bill on 2004-04-30:
Turns out this isn't a reality show. It was just really bad marketing by ABC. The promos and commercials made it look like a reality, competition show but it is just a 20/20 episode about 5 couples going through the adoption process. Shame on ABC for promoting it the way they did.

NFL Sex!
Posted by on
I heard that you had a naked woman held by a football player in one of your Monday night NFL games. That woman was naked from the wrist up! This is nasty, dirty, filthy, and outrageous! I want you to stop showing sx in your NFL ads and pay restitution and apologize to the FCC and people who were offended by this dirt filthy stunt you pulled!

You heard no complaints Ham-ber? I bet that's not true! You likely scared all the tourists with that sight!
chris75056_1 on 2004-11-23:
Naked...from the WRIST UP? You mean they (gasp) showed her entire arm?!
Aember24 on 2004-11-23:
1nothung it is not my fault that tourists do not know how to appreciate big American breasts and have had to settle for the last dynasty to flat chests that faintly resemble twelve year old boys, I mean we know that is what you yourself prefer, when your mom is not force feeding from her enormous saggy breasts.
1hung2lo on 2004-11-23:
We can always count on you for class, can't we Ham-ber! Maybe if you'd exercise occasionally, and learn to eat right, you wouldn't have all that excess baggage to carry around!
Aember24 on 2004-11-23:
well see this is where your making assumptions once again you little azz pimple, I just so happen to work out every morning and I eat three square meals a day. Like I said just because a woman finds fault with you doesn't make them an overweight housewife. Secondly you monkey raping azz clown just because a woman has naturally beautiful big breasts, doesn't mean she has to be fat to have them. I just come from really good genes that's all. So maybe one day when your all grown up you since you weren't natural blessed as I was you can buy your own pair to make up for the lack of balls you were neglected at birth. So run along little midget and go look up your mommy skirt again and relive the day you were born.
melissa.messner.ni1q on 2004-11-23:
GASP! You mean, they showed her entire arm? Oh my Lordy Lordy, what's next, showing bare butts in movies? Showing people making out on daytime TV? Oh, wait...

Nothung1, where do you have the experience to be commenting on women’s anatomy? When threads start using terms such as utters and sets of six, then you should chime in.

Aember24 on 2004-11-23:
Well 1nothung I really couldn't care less what your opinion of me is. If it makes you feel better to think that than fine. But I know what I look like and that's all that matters but it is a sad thing little midget that you could never even have one ounce of a chance with a real woman like me. So go away little azz clown and quit following me like a love sick troll, yours is the kind of attention I really don't need.
Slimjim on 2004-11-23:
And there's nothungatall, turning a review thread abusive again. I smell another banning. Better dust off kramnation "Mark", you're running out of uncaged ID's.
jumbalaya on 2004-11-23:
I believe Aember was the first to be offensive, thus turning a review into a joke.

Yeah, this coming from SIFFER, the most flagrant abuser on the site! Give me a break!
Aember24 on 2004-11-23:
exactly how was I being offensive and the poster did a good enough job making this post a joke. I mean this is not the 1800's and a bare arm is not offensive. Maybe yours is 1nothung, but in general. Besides no one asked you to chime in with your insults towards me once again. What will it take for you to quit following me around in the sad little depressing way that you do? And when I say you I mean all of your id's!
1hung2lo on 2004-11-23:
You started this, and you know it Hamber. I should hardly think I would follow the likes of you - by any measure, I am a LEADER. You made a joke of this review by making reference to your "flashing" habit. That in itself speaks volumes about you and your lack of class, not to mention you likely sickened tourists in New Orleans. Take your sick perverted habits elsewhere sister, 'cause we don't need 'em here !
jumbalaya on 2004-11-23:
I found the "crawl back under your rock, church lady" to be abusive. Why should anyone have to endure that type of slap in a review?
jumbalaya on 2004-11-23:
Besides, I think two things that you geniuses don't get. First, the poster was evidently from another country, based on the "you and your" references and the fact that they haven't seen the video in a hundred replays on tv. Thus, they may have gotten wrist and waist confused in the language. Plus, a wrist is at the waist when standing, meaning a bare back would be visible, (unless you're a knuckle dragger aember) so that is a valid reference. A shot from the wrist up would most likely include the bare back, if in fact that was the correct word used. Why you are so obsessed with an arm is ridiculous. You understood what it meant, you just wanted to take pot shots once again at a reviewer. You people are ruining this site, Siffer managed to do away with the voting by claiming he was abusing it in a thread, and the rest of your bunch is slowly but surely making people timid to post a review and take abuse.
sman on 2004-11-24:
This a ridiculous complaint. Not only is it poorly thought out, it seems like something out of the 50's. How often have we seen similar situations (if not more revealing) in commercials and other TV shows. No one says anything. Add a beautiful girl (and you SAW NOTHING - minus her back) to an NFL presentation and people flip out. I am tired of this country reverting back to the dark ages. Go back to the bible belt, your ankle length skirts, and refusal to wear a bathing suit. Save the rest of us from hearing the endless drone.
KramNation on 2004-11-25:
I think if this was played before a more adult movie then it would had been okay, but this was played before a Monday Night football game which is more family oriented. So, I think it was inappropriate for this to be played. It was not only the dropping of the gown, but the sexual overtones as well.
