Amidst the hype for the new "hot" fall TV season, it occurs to me that we advertisers are yet again sorely ignored and underrepresented.
I joke with my wife all the time that everybody and their dog gets a damn show - cops, lawyers, docs, office salesmen, footballer's wives, even garbagemen get represented. But never is the lowly advertiser represented by sexy actors like Patrick Dempsey and Eva Longoria. The best we've gotten in these long years of financing the TV networks is Darrin Stevens (a bumbling hack who technically didn't even create most of his winning ideas, they were accidental results of Samantha's magic gone awry).
Well enough of this! It's time we bring sexy back and join as a movement to get advertisers better represented on TV! Advertisers: We know drama! Make your vote heard below:
