Sun Music's Hot Seat is a buggy and crappy show

After a big hype on the ad ' Meghala darling ta irundhu seatu kedachachu', Sun music revealed about a new show.
It is Sun Music's Song List program. The attractive part of the program is the viewers can request a seat by sending a structured message to a SMS gateway number 58585.
Viewers need to type 'HS name' and send it to 58585 before the 5th song.
Then they will receive a SMS message consist of a song list of six songs. If those songs in the message matches exactly with songs played on that program. They will receive a gift.
Today I also sent a message for getting a  seat to 58585 to participate in the program. The SMS has been charged Rs 3. and I didn't get reply till the third song. After the third song, I received error messages from 58585 that their server can't handle or process my request.
The message reads as follows,

"<TABLE width=500 border=0 cellspacing=10><TR><TD>

<h1>The page cannot be displayed</h1>
The request cannot be processed at this time. The amount of traffic exceeds the Web site's configured capacity.
<p>Please try the following:</p>
<li>Click the <a href="javascript:location.reload()">Refresh</a> button, or try again later.</li>
<li>If this error persists, contact the Web site administrator to inform them that this error continues to occur for this URL address.</li>
<h2>HTTP Error 500.13 - Server error: Web server is too busy.<br>Internet Information Services (IIS)</h2>
<p>Technical Information (for support personnel)</p>
<li>Go to <a href="">Microsoft Product Support Services</a> and perform a title search for the words <b>HTTP</b> and <b>500</b>.</li>
<li>Open <b>IIS Help</b>, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr),
and search for topics titled <b>Monitoring and Tuning Web Application Performance</b>, <b>Performance Monitoring and Scalability Tools</b>, and <b>About Custom Error Messages</b>.</li>


I am puzzled after seeing this message. What am understood seeing this message is the hosted server can't handle further as the server processed too much requests and can't proceed further.
It is ridiculous,
Its totally ridiculous.
How come a production server can't handle such traffic as they definitely know that they are going to get a huge amount of request. They should configure and maintain their service to meet the traffic or load.
But the worst part is the program still continued and the program host is telling users to get seats as much as they can.
I can't tolerate it.
I don't know how many of the viewers faced such situation.
But its definitely a crappy situation.
They don't even acknowledged the situation and let the viewers make further requests to get seat.
At last sun music is broadcasting a crappy program.
It didn't care about to deliver entertainment to users. All it want is to squeeze as much as money from its viewers and deliver them this crap.

So, please don't send SMS to hot seat program or at least they solve this issue. If you had faced this same situation today. Please share your thoughts here.
