Delano Little on WBTV and that Pat Battle look-a-like who does the sports on WSOC. That dude sometime sounds like he's bark/chirping his sports segments.

Pat Battle was just annoying, period.

Oh yeah you nailed it Art, LOL.

I find the Toyota guy with the dog very annoying.
In fact I called the dealership numerous times asking what kind of dogs they sell just to aggravate them.

The Kia commercials - annoying.
'Kia of Gastonia and Kia of Mawnroo!'

There was a Nissan commercial for a few months last year where the guy said 'BAM!' 10x or so - extremely annoying.
I emailed the dealership a few times telling them their commercials were terribly annoying.

When the local news stays on (2x last month when we had a dusting of snow) and does not show TODAY or GMA, I find that very frustrating and start calling/emailing the station to complain. A dusting a snow, we got it, turn on the national news please.

On CNN the Head-On commercials are so annoying.
'Head-On, apply directly to head, apply directly to head, apply directly to head, apply directly to head.
Got it already!!

FWIW, I like the rug girl
I mentioned once to my wife that I thought the rug girl was hawt.
Now everytime the commercial comes on she throws a pillow at me.

On that vein I also like Christi Paul on CNNHN.

But the all time news hottie is Mélissa Theuriau.
When we are in France I watch her even though I only understand about half what she is saying...

This annoys the crap out of me also. Also, how long do they have to run the school closings, I mean it's 10am, if you don't know by now?!!?!? And when your watching HD shows, WSOC on my 57" tv is now a 19", does it have to be shrunk that much?, other stations don't shrink it that small. I think I watched WBTV because it was the largest....WCNC is still not in HD so I rarely watch that channel for news.

I think the car commercials bug me the most. There are sooooooo many of them.


I'm tired of the switch to digital TV commercials. I mean it's been going on for years now. If you aren't ready for it by now, you never will be - until it happens. I know the program ran out of money, but the government could have been better prepared for that.

On a positive note.......we rarely watch live tv, so we fast forward through the commercials. YEAH FOR MY DVR
