    Wonder why they make so much money that its profitable to pay for all the air time. She must be an effective spokesperson

    The only place I would have seen these is HLN and, since they don't show Forensic Files much any more, we don't watch any more.

    Never seen these. Then again I see no commercials due to not having TV for most of my adult life.

    I have a really nice 75” TV, just not a service. I grew tired of watching the cowboys lose so much. :D

    Cut the cable 12 years ago, took a lot of flack initially from the kids, but turned out to be one of the best parenting decisions ever.

    I hate TV. I’ve never paid for cable. When I was a kid, the TV was always on in my parents’ house. Even if no one was watching. Just background noise. My grandparents have it on all day, too. When we go over there for dinner, my kids are like, “what is this???”

    Cancelled Netflix a couple years ago. It’s funny hearing people talk about how many shows they are currently watching and what they have to get through. It’s like it’s a to-do list. Weird.

    I have also noticed this when talking with people. I don't get it at all. I don't think I'm a terribly busy guy, but I just don't have time to watch TV most days. When I hear people say talk about the queue of shows they "need" to watch, I scream inside my head 'how do you have so much time to do nothing better than watch TV?!'

    Oh, and I have no idea who that lady is in the OP's post lol. Never seen any ads with her.

    I never had cable growing up. I had it for about 2 years when I lived with a roommate after trade school, only ever watched hockey and football. Once he moved out, I cut the cord and never looked back. Ads and commercials drive me insane. Cable TV is unwatchable to me. I stream everything now. Youtube has been pissing me off lately though with their ads every couple minutes in the middle of any video over 10 minutes long. Fuckers keep pushing Youtube Premium on me. How about no, you greedy ass licking bastards.

    I primarily have cable for sports, not that I have time to watch any these days. My wife watched it a lot when she was in quarantine but she's been good about keeping it turned off during the day since our daughter was born.

    So basically a show with a whole bunch of potential, but through poor execution ends up in continual disappointment?

    No clue who she is.

    We have cable but I'd love to cancel it, maybe after this 2y contract I can convince my family.

    We mainly watch cooking shows and History Channel. But many of those can be streamed now or watched via an app.
