Do any of you watch BBC America? If so, are you annoyed by the advertisements in the lower right-hand corner of the screen? I'm watching Luther and I think the notice for the Doctor Who season premiere is taking up somewhere between 1/9th and 1/12th of the entire screen. If this trend continues, pretty soon watching tv will feel just like watching tv after clicking on the program guide.

I only watch Doctor Who on BBC America, and don't remember seeing promos for other shows. There probably were promos, but apparently they didn't annoy me enough to remember them.

I think, however, those promos are standard across cable channels. I have been annoyed by them in other shows on other channels. It's a reminder that the commercials don't exist to pay for the shows; the shows exist to get us to sit through the commercials.
