Friends did not target the Teen 12-17 audience, it was not even listed in their demo paper, though the 18-34 disposable income demo was. Everybody Loves Raymond targetted the 18-34 disposable income audience as a primary, with the 18-49 audience as secondary target.Originally Posted by Veruka;2874341;
Indeed, nor am I a fan of anyone who does that. Which is why I haven't, nor do I intend to. Nor have I assumed that is what you are trying to do, since I understand that opinions may differ and having them and stating them is not akin to 'forcing standards' on anyone.Originally Posted by Veruka;2874341;
I do, however, believe that we are all equal here in having the same right to voice our opinions, even state what our own standards might be, and I believe that because something may be allowed, that doesn't make it appropriate in all situations. As has been pointed out so often, that's one of the differences between maturity and immaturity, being able to guage a situation and act appropriately, and this pig apparently hasn't made the transition yet. And just as networks are free to make content decisions for themselves, those same networks and their advertisers do rely on viewer feedback for future decisions. Only a really stupid network makes content decisions irregardless of what viewers tell them in feedback and surveys, and that is what we are all doing here. I give my feedback, you give your feedback, we're all allowed that privilege and because we state it does not mean any of us are forcing standards on anyone else. I am doing that no more than you are. What I am doing is the same as everyone else, and this is exercising my right to state my opposing opinion, just as you are.
You and I are both experienced enough in stating our opinions to know that because we emphatically state it does not mean we are attempting to 'force' it on anyone. And just as I respect your right to your opinion and don't think of it as you trying to 'force' your standard on me or anyone else, I would expect that you respect the same of me and anyone else who might hold a differing opinion. And I'm confident enough that you do that I don't take any offense.
