As Seen on TV

I am definitely behind the times. I didn't even know that my local Walgreen's drugstore had a dedicated section for products "as seen on tv."

Store shelves crammed with products, sign above says As Seen on TV
This includes those weird plastic Bumpit things that make your hair look like you're a singer from the B52s...

Bumpit boxes on the shelf
...and the latest descendents of the Ginsu knife...

Slap Chop, Egg Genie, and Titan vegetable peeler
... plus that cat-hair magnet known as the SnuggieTM.

I don't know when I last saw so many unneeded products in one spot.

I know you love your Snuggie as much as I love mine!

There used to an As Seen on TV store here in San Francisco. In the same mall as Nordstrom. Weird!

I remember seeing an As Seen On TV Store in a mall somewhere. Now, if I looked good as Carmella in a Snuggie, I'd be hurdling to the store to get one right now.
They have their place however, they're highly recommended for people in wheelchairs and the elderly. (No offense, Carmella!)

Up next: A special store section labeled "As Seen on The Internets!"

I haven't noticed one at Walgreen's (but will look next time I'm there), but there's been one at the Mall of America for a long time...maybe that's where Ms. Sparrow saw it. Yup, mostly stuff nobody ever really needs...but you could say that about so many products in so many stores!
