So many TV commercials are about selling high dollar automobiles but I wonder how many people who buy these cars watch TV.

Last year I bought a Samsung digital TV set in order to watch TV without the decoder attached to my old analog Philips TV. Now I have a new PC and am using the new TV set as monitor. Goodby TV.

Pre-Eric (circa 1989-1992) I did not own a tv. I was insufferably snotty and holier-than-thou about it too. Eric could not live without television, so when we became a couple television became a part of my life. Now I park my ample behind upon the couch and let my brain rot on a terrifyingly regular basis.

Well back in my very early days of being a young snot nosed semi adult. ( 18 )
I thought after watching those High karote adds I could wear that and get girls.
I have been a non believer in TV adds ever since:)
I have worked second or 3rd shift most of my life. I only record what I really want to to watch. And BLOW BY the comercials.

I have never owned a Mercedes. I have given them away as gifts. Drove a BMW for about 10 years, a Ferrari for 20, and gave my ex a Cadillac Escalade. I have always had a TV, but my watching is minimal. Sunday Morning, F1 and occasionally the news. Today I own 2 TV's but no cable service. They are for my kids to play computer games and movies. I do have Netflix, but they never seem to have anything I want to watch. So I really don't watch TV.

The Channel Store is Available as part of Netflix Main Menu. The Amount of Worldwide Diverse Content is Amazing. With 99.9999% of No Interest, but Dat 0.0001 Might Be Worth 'It'.

Dat Romania Channel...and, of course BollywOOd.

Richie Rich don't Need No Commercials. Money is an Info Magnet, whether needed or not. If Flows to 'em Like a mO fO.

I love Tv. I've never had a Cadillac or a Mercedes, so I guess my tv habit has ruined me. ;~}

Good try. There were good financial reasons for the gifts. Let's just say there was a good return on investment.

No TV here either. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy it, when I visit people that have one.
My familie likes those expensive cars and yes they watch TV. Mind you, they are all in Europe and the Commercials are just funnier.
