I've got a question: is everybody else tired of the constant DirecTV plugs written into the script lately? Man, if I had any intention of switching to DirecTV before (which I didn't), Tabitha, Endora, Mrs. Wallace, and Norma's constant talk of the Satellite provider, would definitely make me change my mind. One last thing about this, could their plug be anymore blatant in their first scenes in today's episode?

I just watched today's episode, and you're right -- it was terrible. I don't mind a few jabs at getting semi-canceled and sent to satellite, but they've really taken it to an extreme.

I know, at first I didn't mind the jabs, but when they started to get more frequent I started to get more annoyed. Enough is enough.

I agree. But I have a feeling it's going to only get worse as D-Day approaches

I kinda like the plugs it shows me that they care about the show.

I don't mind the commercials that the actors do, but when it comes to having the plugs written into the script, it gets on my nerves so fast.
