Starting this evening at 10PM, our American friends will begin enjoying the third season of WEEDS on Showtime. While myself and fellow Canadian TV Addicts will have to wait until OCTOBER 2007 for the same privilege.
As a result of your lack of scheduling savvy, Canadian fans of WEEDS will be forced to avoid some of our favorite television web sites, blogs and message boards. All in an effort to ensure that the show isn’t spoiled for us whenever you get around to airing it.
How on earth can you continue to justify — especially in this modern era of digital distribution and online television — delaying a highly anticipated series for three months? Do you not grasp the fact that in the long run you’re only hurting your own network? Do you not realize that thousands of fans will simply take it upon themselves to watch the show online, thus lowering your ratings and eventually your bottom line?
