And the Dish Ran Away with the Boobs

8/20/2007 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pam Anderson, Shannon ElizabethA federal judge granted a preliminary injunction against DirecTV, blocking the satcaster from airing certain commercials -- one of which features "Baywatch" babe Pam Anderson.

Comcast, the cable operator that sought the injunction, claiming that ads boasting DirecTV has better HD picture quality than cable were "unscientific." In the spot, featuring Pam in her signature "Baywatch" swimsuit, she turns to camera and says, "DirecTV's picture quality beats cable 4 to 1." Clearly, if someone is making their HD decisions based on Pam Anderson's recommendations, they deserve what they get.

Also yanked was an "American Pie" spoof, featuring Shannon Elizabeth saying, "More people voted DirecTV's picture quality superior to oppressive cable." In a statement issued Friday, a DirecTV spokesman said, "We are quite perplexed by the court's conclusions. The facts simply don't support these decisions."

Pam Anderson, YUCK! HOW many decades since Baywatch? Too damned many, she needs to give it up. I think it is pathetic that she is trying to pull off an old Baywatch spot and use it as if she really is that same bimbo when we see how ratty and over the hill she REALLY is in that tacky silver bathing suit she wore (with the fat hanging out the back of it) for her gay boyfriend's magic act. If Pam was just half the bimbo she thpught she was, she wouldn't be down to pretending that a gay guy is her boyfriend. This is a slut that would do anything for a buck. Her kids will be a mess and she doesn't care. Yeah, just keep licking those lips and shaking that hard plastic chest at that poor gay magician, Pam, just validates what a stupid washed-up hag you are.

what should be banned is the "direct TV only" shows. its a horrible way to get customers, It must show that direct TV is losing plenty of business. I mean, its truly unfair to the shows that are watch regularly to be moved to the "direct TV only" program. So many viewers refuse to make the switch. What a rip-off company if you ask me

Hyde Dude, SO right on! And watch, Pam will come flying in here on her broom like she always does screeching about how all the women are jealous of her and all the guys who can't stand the aging porn crone are gay. But she has a gay "boyfriend," LOL, proving regular guys won't give her the time of day. I cracked up when she said she wanted to be "passed around" the magic convention in Vegas, yeah sure, dream on, Pam, like if she announced she was ready to be "passed around," there would be a stampede out the doors of the convention. Who'd want her diseases, no one, which is why she has a gay "boyfriend," he doesn't even touch her, and she passes herself off as a sex toy. LMAO!

Ugghhh!    

I saw the stupid commerical. Pam Anderson LOOKS terrible. She's way toooo old for the stretched out bathing suit. And her face looks as bad as the stretched out chest tissue. So maybe that is the REAL reason the commerical is blocked, because Pam looks bad!

Anyway, you all know if you compare cable and Direct TV, the picture looks exactly the same! Especially on one of the newer TV sets. Just another lie to get you to pay for watching TV in your home. Sad, TV watching used to be free. Except for the TV set of course.
