Take Back the—Day?

November 18, 2011

Hey, if you’re tired of Daylight Saving Time lasting so late in the year, or if you don’t want your kids going to school in the dark, try this:

Contact the advertisers from your favorite TV shows and tell them that you can’t stay awake for the 9:00 or 10:00 shows during the week right after the time change. (I don’t even try!) Since November is sweeps month, that might bug them.

The advertisers could complain to the networks, the networks could gripe to Congress, and voila! Daylight Saving Time gets ended earlier.

Nothing says, “Protect our kids” like “Hey! We’re losing money here!”
