... Hannah and her friggin horse? Or the "new" Colonel Sanders (creepiest commercials ever). Or absolute anything involving the Kardassians (including Caitlyn Jenner). Oh, oh the one with the parents who are so concerned that their daughter's fuzzy toy got juice on it... good gosh parents, man up.... it's just a baby...who's in charge in that household???

You may wish to toss your television into a nearby trash receptacle. Take pictures while doing so and post them here.

Yeah, Hannah and her horse is pretty creepy. Nothing like being hammered over the head with Freud.

I've actually met the real Col. Sanders when I was a little kid in Kentucky at a KFC. He gave me a quarter. The new guy is not Col. Sanders.

Thankfully I have a DVR for the rare times I do watch TV and can blast through most of this.

Yes to all of those. The Kardashians/Jenners jumped the shark years ago and now with "Caitlyn" showing up everywhere it takes effort to avoid them.

But I either DVR and fast forward or always turn the sound off for the commercials. With the sound off I can appreciate Hannah - don't care about her horse, or goat, etc.

Who is this Hannah? There's a new Colonel Sanders?

I've heard of the Kardashians. Some big butted broads if I remember correctly.

And Caitlyn is somebody that has issues.

Maybe I need to buy a TV so I know all this kind of stuff.

You know what I haven't seen as a commercial on the Tour coverage this year? Lance in Michelob Ultra spots.

you can certainly try not watching as much network / cable TV. But, that is still not a 100% escape.
Uh, what is "Hannah and her horse"? I seem to have missed the memo on that one.

You must not be watching coverage of the TdF on NBCSP in the AM.

I'm old enough to remember the real Colonel Sanders visiting the KFC in Pawtucket, RI when I was a kid. This new guy is a disgrace! Hannah was OK the first few time, and I get a bit of a chuckle from the goat, but it's run it's course. I can proudly say I've never seen the Kardashiens, or however you spell their name. Pitiful bunch from what I've heard.

Maybe I don't watch enough TV! I had to do a google search to learn who Hannah and her horse are. Oddly enough.... I have seen that commercial. I just never noticed the horse before.

& why if I'm already paying the bill for cable does the cable company need to waste my time reselling the whole scheme again?

The new Colonel Sanders comes off as creepy to me, and the rest of the stuff you mentioned made me glad I don't own a TV.

The first Hannah ad was brilliant with the 'I met her in Tijuana' line. I couldnt believe they left that in.

If you imagine Hannah Davis is naked in those ads, it makes them much more tolerable. OTOH, with the Kardassians, that only makes them worse, and sadly, it requires no imagination. Fake Col. Sanders is just something that needs to not exist.

AND...........Heineken Light commercials.
My ONLY favorite NPH scene is when he gets his throat slashed in Gone Girl.

Even that won't work. Went to see Mr Holmes yesterday at the theater. Greeting me was the Col Sanders commercial. It is bad enough on TV...but on the big screen? YIKES!

I'm still ok with Hannah and her horse, but those obnoxious ladies in the VW jetta commercial are killing me.
