    It looks like this is going to be on FOX, CBS, NBC and BET at least at 8pm on Wed 10/28. It seems to be there in the listings, but if somebody has a manual recording it might surprise them. And without dwelling on this, I might add that the show itself may well be worth your while in any event, although I suppose it'll be available online afterward.

    Doesn't look like ABC is going to air it. That's good news for Pushing Daisies

    Absolutely! We would not want the process of putting someone into one of the most powerful offices in the world to get in the way of a regular series TV program.:eek:

    Excuse me but I don't considering this to be "part of the process". He is paying a ridiculous amount of money for a long commercial.

    It shows up in my Tivo listing as airing at midnight. 8pm shows the regular scheduled programs. I guess I'll have to do a manual recording.

    Are you suggesting that no one should be able to watch anything except the Obama commercial? It's already airing on multiple networks.

    What if they've already made up their mind (one way or another) who they're planning to vote for? Or maybe they've already voted!

    its not a debate....its a freaking ad from a man that claims he supports public campaign financing that then decides he can raise more money and buy every kind of media in sight. Its a measure of the obscene amount of money Obama has spent in this election cycle. I am not wasting my time watching an ad. It gives nothing of the measure of the man or his stands. Its a lousy choice we have with these 2 men.

    Don't worry, comrade...most people probably receive at least one of the other networks on their electromagic propaganda delivery device, so folks should be all set.

    Maybe ABC should air the 1984 Apple Macintosh commercial on a loop during the same time period. :D

    Eight words from the past (not to be taken personally - this was aimed at the network), when CBS did something similar for Adlai Stevenson (either 1952 or 1956):
    I Love Lucy.
    I Like Ike.
    Drop Dead.

    I didn't mean to belittle anyone, but given the arrogance of spending of the Obama Campaign, when he said he believed in public financing, this is just another example. There will not be anything memorable in a half hour commercial financed by one side. I ignore the ads even the ones by candidates I support, just want them over with. I won't watch a second of this ad. The debates and newspaper are the place to make a decision from or get info, not a self serving fluff ad.

    Obama never promised to take public financing he said he would consider it. Read his original quote. McCain spun it as Obama breaking a promise which he didn't. Obama considered it... and decided no.

    Why are people, especially those that don't seem to support him, worried about what Obama is spending his money on? Buying a half hour seems more worthwhile than all of these 30-120 second ads that snipe at each other. And I don't think the cost is as big as everybody is making it out to be. The estimates are $1 million per network, which is hardly an obscene amount. McCain is free to make a similar buy if he wants to use his money that way.

    I guess you could say that if you didn't know the definition of the word "consider."

    Anyone heard of the internet? The ad will certainly be on the internet later.

    I have already voted so it doesn't matter to me. I happen to be watching it out of curiosity since I don't watch the other programs but with early voting will it make much difference?

    This could mean record ratings for Pushing Daises, from those who don't want to watch the infomercial.

    I wonder if it will be in HD?
