A couple of days ago Dig inserted one of their stinking promos in the middle of the show Law and Order: Special Victims Unit! The screen froze and changed to a t-shaped thing in the middle on a green marble background and 3/5/15 on the bottom. Some idiot probably thought it was "cool". I don't know about you, I do not like a show being interrupted by screen garbage for A SHOW I ALREADY KNOW IS PREMIERING!!!!

I totally hear you, the first time they were pulling this nonsense was Jan 1, it freaked me out at first and didn't know what the hell it was. I didn't see anymore until this past week. I saw it more than 5, 6 times yesterday watching SVU reruns and it JUST aired a few minutes ago. It's extremely tasteless advertising.

The commercials with this show have been non-stop - and USA does have a TON of commercials to begin with. But then to slap these subliminal signs showing a hacked TV signal every 45-90 minutes during an actual show is just a big turn off. I have no desire to see this damn Dig.

Great, they now have hashtag #DigDeeper! They're polluting the airwaves with this crap! We know the show is premiering now STOP IT! IF I HEAR "3000 years of history waiting to be discovered!" One more fracking time I'm taking a sledge hammer to the TV!

Watch L&O SVU all the time on USA(like the older episodes - before Olivia took over), yet can't remember seeing these tv screen "interuptions".

Gag! I can't escape it! I switched it to The Weather Channel after the binge of Rosanne was over. Sure enough, eventually a promo for Dig came on! Wouldn't it be funny if instead of a serious, scary, show. It turned out to be a slapstick comedy!

Yeah I saw it also on The Weather Ch. and TNT I thought "WTF, knock it off!!" It makes sense now I guess. NBC/Universal is partners with TWC and TNT, also USA Network. And then caught a glance of the promo on The Today Show yesterday. So nope, there is no escaping it.

I didn't watch it last night and won't be watching the hours of reruns tonight and all weekend. But I am curious how the reviews are, with all this overkill of promos I kind of hope it got blasted.
