REMOVE the Commercials from NickJr!

The whole point of switching on NickJr used to be to provide kids with a little commercial free, friendly TV geared toward preschoolers. Now, there are suddenly commercials being shown on the channel - and not just for other Nickelodeon products or programs. We've seen adverts for cleaning products, shows we just don't think are appropriate, plus - and this is the worst - toys. If we wanted our kids to have ads thrown at them, we would have chosen a different channel than NickJr!

Rampant commercialism has NO PLACE on NickJr and we want the commercials SWITCHED OFF - PERMANENTLY!

No more commercials: no more cleaning products, toys,"learning" products, ads for other Nick channels, NickMom (which is awful by the way) and preferably not for the darn Freshbeat Band any more (they have their own show - that's quite enough, thanks).

Let our little ones enjoy their TV time the way they did before: commercial free, friendly programming for children that can be made part of a balanced day, not some conduit into the wider world of Nickelodeon. We know what you're trying to do and it STINKS. Leave our little kids out of your moneymaking schemes!!!

      My daughter has her whole life to have commercialism thrown at her. All she needs as a child is simple entertainment, not a lesson in how to have interrupted, small spurts of attention span.

      Very disappointing, one more place that money gets in the way! Sad!

      We no longer support or watch Nick Jr because of the loss of Moose/Zee (or something similar - my daughter loves watching old dvr'd episodes where they're still present), commercials, and worst of all, Nick Mom and the commercials for it.. As said, we no longer watch the channel. Thank you, PBS, for remaining diligent and intelligent, and appropriate (save Caillou) for our children.
