Why Does TV Have To Be So Dumb Sometimes?

I've been meaning to bring this up.

In the ALDS Game 1, Derek Jeter hit a two-run homer to tie the game up. As you might recall, I was there for the game. So thus I got to watch as a TBS cameraman jumped onto the field to follow Jeter as he came around third and scored.

I was reminded of that now as Manny Ramirez was being, well, Manny. Another epic clutch home run to bring the Dodgers back to trailing by a run, 5-4.

So the question: do you like this? Do you notice it? Or is it just another thing where some TV exec thought it was a good idea and nobody cares about it?

In other words - dumb and unnecessary.
