** Probably they're saying that the series in question won't feature a mid-season interlude of reruns, which is something some programs do to stretch out their new episodes' debuts across two sweeps-week periods and to allow for mid-season cliffhangers.

**You all will love the new commercials. They're moving away from the "dudebro" market in a glorious fashion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzTSE6kcLwY

**I think they're trying to create imagery that supposedly describes how it smells. It comes off looking more like an ad for recreational drugs.

* This has to do more with movie posters than any actual commercials on television, but here goes. Is there ANY film that's come out recently that hasn't used an [[OrangeBlueContrast overwhelming amount of orange and blue on their posters?]] It's ugly and makes them all look the same. Not to mention [[ViewersAreMorons insulting]], as the orange/blue contrast is supposed to be the most subliminally pleasing to our eyes, and is somehow more likely to make us purchase movie tickets. (Because you know, actual trailers/actors/directors don't generate any interest in said film, no sir) I'm a big collector of movie posters, and there's hardly any from the past decade I find worth owning because of this hideous trend.

* Has Revlon STILL not realized yet that their "women's nailpolished hands feeling up a man's face" ad campaign makes it look like a man is touching his own face with his own immaculately polished nails? I hope they never realize. I like the commercials/ads/product display banners better this way. I can pretend it's progressive.

** Since in the USA sales tax is set by the state/local governments, it's not technically false advertising because you arenít paying more than $1 for the item. You pay your $1 for the item. You are obligated to pay sales tax to the state. McDonalds collects that on the state's behalf, but you arenít paying it to them and it is not part of the official cost of the item. Simple way to see this in action is if you have ever bought a car from a friend. Say your friend sold you a car for $2000. When you go to register the car in your name, you'll discover that you have to pay the sales tax on the $2000 at that time, since the default assumption is that $2000 was the price of the car, not including tax.

***It's implied that the women thinks the guy is reading his friends book and is disgusted by it, which is the whole point, having a second to think and turn a bad situation into a good one.
