    No: I take an opposite stand to entitlement mentality. If everyone else opposed entitlement mentality, I wouldn't advocate entitlement.

    If you base your perspectives on what other people think instead of what is right, that's your prerogative. I don't feel comfortable crafting my perspectives based on popularlity.

    Please stop trying to defend your attacks against the network; instead please grant that reasonable people could disagree with your perspective.

    Hey, I'm entitled. I've earned my right to demand $10 million an episode 30 minute sitcoms. I pay Dish $5 a month for locals and the right to skip commercials.:D

    I'm just waiting for the product and service advertising overlays to start... it's going to be pretty interesting seeing how folks react to that. ... or the second network to turn five hours of prime time over to variety.

    Already doing this in Canada. Global uses the lower third graphics for paid spots after the commercial break twice during each show. It's no worse, IMO, than the lower third show promos we currently put up with.

    Since I am paying over $1400 a year for TV programming, I expect certain things, and if I find that the Masses of people who are also paying for the same TV share a common feeling on the way something should be done then your dam right I feel entitled. Call it what you want, but I know better than to waste time asking for things that only suit my needs, so yes I do feel a lot more validated when i know my opinion is shared by the vast majority.

    So let me get this straight, in your world people should pay for stuff and not feel entitled to an opinion?

    Oh and when you find the reasonable guy who posts to this thread and disagrees with my perspective please point him out
    ;)

    Remorse for how much you are spending is not justification for expecting more than what you are promised. Whatever amount you're spending is being spent for precisely what was offered for that price. Not for anything more than that.

    Shared delusion is still delusion. Consumers always want more than they're entitled to. That doesn't make it a constructive perspective. (I could make some comparisons to concerns in the political arena here to demonstrate this more fully, but I think you can get the idea on your own.)

    Incorrect. In my world, people should pay for stuff and feel entitled only to the stuff they paid for.

    Why would I bother posting if someone else was already here representing the rational and responsible perspective? :confused:

    There can be more than one rational and responsible perspective! The word "perspective" indicates that there is more than one viewpoint; what's rational from a network's perspective may not be rational from a viewer's perspective - that doesn't make one perspective right and the other wrong.

    Granted, so revised: "Why would I bother posting if someone else was already here representing that rational and responsible perspective?"
