But have you noticed the commercials for "men's products" during televised sporting events that seems to have arisen over the last few years?  Do men even watch commercials? 

Other interesting commercials, products for erectile disfunction aired during reality dating shows.....

You can picture the guy sitting there, watching Blind Date, thinking to himself, "Wow....my eyes tell me she's hot, but I'm just not feeling it....Bam...a commercial for viagra or the like.

Anyone here ever been to the Museum of Television and Radio?? If you go, you can reach into their archives and find a show called "Twenty-five years of Great commercials" or something like that.

I've seen it. what amazes you the most is how commercials from thirty or forty years ago stick in your head. Especially jingles, like You can trust your car to the man that wears the star.
The great big Texaco star!"
  or taglines like "I can't believe I ate the WHOLE thing" or "Where's the Beef?"


Of course you can call up lots of your old favorite shows, too.

Very cool place...on 52nd Street in NYC.

We watch the 2&1/2 Men at 7:00 on 11 and there is always an ad for the Lady Schick (or something) and I commented to ifeyway "Do they really think that this is a show that women watch in great numbers?"

Lhoffman,

I thought that you were going to go towards the visual of the guy who takes Viagra before watching Blind Date.

Glad you didn't, I wouldn't want that visual in my mind.

That would be a trip!!!   "Plop Plop fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is."

TV show theme songs used to be quite a bit more memorable, too.  Gilligan's Island....you get the whole idea behind the show from the introductory jingle.  Brady Bunch....

There are some good contemporary openings, though.  The Sopranos theme comes to mind, and Monk's It's a Jungle Out There.  Always liked the sort of hip feeling to Frazier's "tossed salad", even though I don't like the show. 

Oddly enough, I remember most music I've heard since the time I was about three years old, but I can't bring to mind the House theme....even though I like the show.

There is a man who lives a life of danger
To every one he meets, he stays a stranger
With every move he makes
Another dare he takes
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow!

Secret.... Agent man! Secret Agent man
They've a given you a number, and a taken away your name!

Is it just me, or does hearing those songs make you feel good?
