TBS seems to have gone to the FOX school of baseball broadcasting. Missing the beginning of innings so they can squeeze a promo in is unacceptable. Not only that, but it’s a promo for a damned re-run, and the same one they show every half-inning! Much like I was forced to boycott House because of FOX’s incessant promotion of it during the 2004 playoffs, I’m not watching The Office on TBS. Luckily since it’s on NBC first, I won’t be missing anything.
