    This is complete absurdity.

    I watch muchmoremusic to see Videos. Not to see almost half of the screen dedicated to:

    A: The Station Logo (but obviously I have to get used to this)

    B: The Current time/date and timezones

    C: The weather for 2 Canadian cities

    D: Who's touring and where they are going

    E: The latest gossip in the music/entertainment world

    F: and a program guide for the station.

    This is crazy! And also very distracting. How can I get into the groove of an old Human League video when the weather for St. Johns and Halifax is flashing on the screen?

    If I want to know about the weather situation in my country I will either

    A: Turn on the radio

    B: check on the internet

    C: turn on the TV and put on a 24 hour news station or

    D: better yet, turn on the TV and put on TheWeatherNetwork.

    Acckkk! The screen had better be proper when I watch my INXS special later.

    Its the new and improved TV channel syndrome. Load the screen up with a bunch of useless crappy 'data' -actually commericals and ads...and have about 15% in the middle devoted to the program. I think people get used to that crappy little picture on their computer ....and forget that they have the tv on.

    I end up watching MM more than the truly crappy US music channels.

    Drink more...notice it less, that's my attitude!

    Michael,

    I just checked MMM and I don't see the banner your talking about. There's nothing on the screen except the video itself.

    Patrick, yeah they at MMM must have known I was posting a thread like this so they took it off. I realized now that its not on all the time, I think they only put all this useless crap on once in a while. When or why I can't tell you. Keep checking once in a while, your bound to see it.

    How thoughtful of them to show the INXS special without all this useless information.
