I dislike the current trend of a television screen split...

May 17, 1987

I dislike the current trend of a television screen split between a movie's credits and some station promotion. One station promotes an upcoming news broadcast with a split-screen featuring a newscaster and the credits. One PBS station included its fund-raising information on the bottom half of the screen. Since I have a 40-inch screen and cannot read credits shrunk to fit half a screen, I assume that no one else can read them. I like to look for the name of an actor that I liked in a show or to see what city was used for location filming, etc. Stations take notice: I am not paying attention to your promotion. I am too busy squinting at the screen trying to read the shrunken credits!
