I am so sick and tired of hearing of ED and viagra comericals....
Im watching a normal show and these guys keep coming on talking of how they got ED bla bla
Then another comes on where a guy is watching football and the woman looks at him slyly and goes towards the bedroom...He pops in a tape hits record and then VIAGRA!!

Then you have UTI a womens comericial...

Everyone knows to talk to the doctor when they get medical problems!! We dont need these nasty commericals on tv all the time! :thumbsup:

Right on! All bodily functions are now fair game it seems. The one that jerks my chain is about new medicine, Only the name, and ask your doctor? Are people really that stupid?

Yes. I agree. I especially hate watching TV with my mom or dad or even my grandma and see these commercials come on. Not only are they displeasing they are sometimes embarassing depending on if you have company over. I think the FCC should filter out some of these commercials. If we can't say s**t on TV, then I don't think they should be allowed to air commercials about an bodily disfunction or function.

Even the bladder commercials are getting old!


What I find even more ridiculous are these stupid drug commercials. Like cgm3 said:

>>Everyone knows to talk to the doctor when they get medical problems!!

It is not right how the drug companies are ripping off the America public and such by these stupid commercials. They don't make sense. If someone really had problems with allergies one should go to there doctor. Geez... is it me or do these commercials seem fishy?

Yeah like flonase...What I see a lot is a drug will advertise for a while then stop. The next time I see that name its in a public anouncement of how you should not take it anymore!

People dont need to see that on tv. It runs the price up on the product! I mean on that viagra comerical the doctor pops up and says

"You should only take viagra if you are healthy enough for sex"
im like what???
Man there are kids watching tv too get off my tv!

This stuff has got to stop. Next to the comericals of the comedy "old christine on cbs"....Christine cant get tickets so she goes to "pull out" her breasts and a guy next to her says "you aint going to pull out those old things are you?"

Take the crap off of tv and put something on to watch!

Yes, yes they are. If you have doubts, watch The Tonight Show with Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" segments. :inlove:

I hate that show. :thumbsup: Why do all of these shows portray women as "easy" and sluty?

BTW, I love watching SNL, because they frequently make fun of those medical ads! :flowers: (MAD TV does that too, but they go too far :trumpet: )

Where's my clean TV??? Give it back!!!
