Viewer's Wish List for '89

December 31, 1988

Here are some resolutions I hope the TV industry will make for 1989:

--No more falsetto-voiced, speed-talking or baby-talking commercials. They ain't cute, fellas!

--No more interviews with people who continuously bob their heads.

--Commentators will not (not even once ) use raging out of control to describe floods or fires; loved ones to refer to someone's family or friends, or sexy to describe cars.

--The word outrageous will be banned from all TV ads.

--Singing an ad for a laxative will call for automatic time in the slammer.

--Geraldo Rivera, Pee-wee Whateverhisnameis and Joe Isuzu will retire.

Not too much to ask, is it?
