Advertising Anarchy: HART OF DIXIE

Since The CW’s parent commpanies (Warner Bros. and CBS Corp. respectively) have an unfortunate habit of neglecting to provide the Network with an adequate marketing budget from which to properly promote any program that doesn’t star Stephen Amell their roster of returning shows, this latest instalment of Advertising Anarchy — better known as our unique take on how networks and studios might wish to consider promoting some of our new and returning fall favorites — is dedicated to last season’s most under appreciated gem, HART OF DIXIE. Enjoy, and by all means, feel free to print out a larger version of the postcard to send to a friend or two ten!

Advertising Anarchy: REVENGE

“I can’t see the difference, can you see the difference?”

That in a nutshell was this TV Addict’s reaction to the release of REVENGE’s second season poster that bares an eerie similarity to that of its first. A poster that does little more than reinforce the fact that much of the Alphabet Network’s major marketing push leading up to the Fall (both financially and creativity speaking) will be dedicated towards a splashy launch of a select handful of new shows. Which is precisely why we thought now would be as good a time as any for yet another edition of Advertising Anarchy, also known as our unique take on how networks and studios might wish to consider promoting some of our favorite new and returning shows). You’re welcome.

Advertising Anarchy: The Evolution of [the CW] Man

Are you ready for an Extreme Makeover: CW Network Edition? Considering your very own TV Addict is inching uncomfortably closer and closer to the top end of the Network’s 18-to-34 demographic is, we sure as heck are! Which is why, in addition to applauding newly-minted CW President Mark Pedowitz on his attempt to broaden the Network’s appeal with more adult-driven fare such as RINGER and NIKITA, we thought we’d — as we are wont to do — go one step further by offering up a little unsolicited advice in the form of our latest instalment of Advertising Anarchy (Also known as our take on how networks might wish to consider promoting some of our favorite new and returning shows ). Because let’s face it, our little CW Network is finally growing up! See for yourself, after the jump. [Read more…]

Advertising Anarchy: We Have a Little Fun with NBC’s Just Released Fall Key Art for WHITNEY, PRIME SUSPECT, THE PLAYBOY CLUB & More!

Earlier today NBC released an entire slew of fancy artwork touting their new Fall offerings. And while any website can mindlessly post said aforementioned artwork in the seemingly never-ending search for more eyeballs, theTVaddict.com is not just any other website. Which is why, rather than provide the Peacock Network with some incredibly valuable free advertising (Seriously NBC, would it kill you to buy an ad!), we thought it would be far more to flex a few photoshop muscles. See for yourself, what won’t be coming to a New York City bus shelter anytime soon, after the jump. [Read more…]

With the 2011 Emmy® nominations just around the corner, theTVaddict.com continues our “Faux Your Emmy® Consideration” series of ads (Also known as our take on how Networks and Studios might wish to consider campaigning for 2011 Emmy® nominations on behalf of their shows and actors) by shining the spotlight on a show that will very likely see little to no Emmy love: CASTLE.

Faux Your Emmy® Consideration: THE MIDDLE’s Eden Sher

With the deadline for 2011 Primetime Emmy® Nominations fast approaching, one of the things you may-or-may-not have begun to notice across “industry” websites such as Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are “For Your Consideration” ads. And while we certainly are the first to applaud any attempt on behalf of either the Networks or Studios to shine the spotlight on deserving talent both in front and behind of the camera involved in some of your and our favorite shows, we couldn’t help but find ourselves somewhat underwhelmed with the tone of the ads. Which is why, we here at theTVaddict.com thought it might be fun to take a stab at concocting a few slightly tongue-in-cheek advertisements of our own, starting with the always deserving star of THE MIDDLE Eden Sher.
