Daytime TV

There's some real winner advertising on daytime tv.  Mostly ads for personal injury attorneys, OTC yeast treatments, and shady insurance companies, amiright?

And I just want to know one thing: that ad for correspondence school, with Shannen Doherty?  I'm wondering who they think they're fooling.  Because she talks about studying on the set, and I'm pretty sure nobody actually believes she's still working.  Unless she's referring to the actual commercial she's acting in when she talks about being on the set.  But that seems a little too meta for Brenda Walsh.

Do they still have that commercial "Victory has seven acres of used parts. Starers, transmissions, batteries, for all types of cars..." Daytime t.v. is as scarily vacant and vaporous as late late night t.v.

Donna, they do! Did you know Dean Richards from the WGN morning news did the voiceover for that commercial?! I was so shocked when I found out, and so annoyed with myself for not realizing.

also: you are supposed to ALSO KNOW about daytime tv because you also have children!!!! sigh. you also don't let your kids eat food they find on the floor, do you?

That's true, but my kids also end up hospitalized 5 days for complicated pneumonias so not sure how well- advised that strategy is. :o)
