    What the hell is wrong with Dish or Charlie? I was watching the Motortrend Channel and 1800Phonesex commercial comes on. Seriously not only adults watch motortrends, children as well.

    Probably an ad sold by Motortrend. I doubt Charlie would have control over what a channel sells.

    the last time I checked, this channel is not a family show network but a network for car shows and auto racing show and it's target demo is adult males. hence why you will see ads for phone sex hotlines.

    3am is a good time to find such ads. Not exactly a family viewing time.

    From the headline I thought he meant it was on Freeform( formally the
    Family Channel). I or most people wouldn't consider Motortrend a "family" channel.

    You're right. It has been such a long time since Freeform was The Family Channel (ABC's Family Channel previously CBN's Family Channel - the Christian Broadcasting Network) that I overlooked the capitalization and read it as intended "a family channel" not 'the Family Channel".

    And it was so annoying that it took you 12 hours to mention it?
    Were you sitting there in abject shock? :)

    What program where you watching on MT? Rated "TV-PG"?

    If you were watching delayed (at 9pm) it MAY have been one of DISH's insert ads. I have not seen any such ads from DISH ... usually they are transmitted by the networks themselves.

    The...
    Did anyone happen to catch that number? :p

    Seriously, they still have 1-800 sex lines? Who uses those anymore? I just dial random local numbers and ask whomever answers to talk dirty to me! :D:D
