When Billy Mays died last week it seemed there would be a void in late night infomercial programming which as you know is something that I enjoy a great deal. I didn't think they would keep showing Billy's infomercials. Well, not for the first time I was wrong. In fact, it appears that the continued airing of the infomercials not only have the blessing of his family but are getting the same response rate as before he died.
In the weeks leading up to his death Billy filmed two new infomercials. One started airing this week and one will begin airing in about two weeks. I still think it is kind of strange to buy something from someone who has died, but I also understand the companies who shot these infomercials spent a lot of money on them and probably don't want to reshoot them.
So far complaints have been minimal, although I guess CNBC did get some when they aired one this week. What do you think? Should they be taken off the air or are you ok with Billy selling from beyond the grave? I'm guessing he would have loved it.
