    ABC didn’t market Zero Hour to be a winning show. Most of my friends had never heard of Zero Hour It was starting to get recognized by word of mouth ABC leads the way in maketing TOTAL GARGAGE shows such as the bachelor/ette shark, tank, wife swap splash…etc ABC characterizes this TRASH with DRAMATIC advertising using BOLD catchy phrases such as EPIC, MUST SEE Leaves you SPELLBOUND This clever FLAMBOYANT marketing s strategy appeals to a DUMB-DOWNED 18 to 49 year old demographic audience! Who have never had the experience of watching REAL T.V. programming . No I will NOT be watching any of ABC’S IDIOT reality shows

    First ABC cancelled Last Resort (good show) and then Zero Hour (eh) for Shark Tank and didn’t do any better. Really good decision ABC.
