4. Oh, hahaha! Like you, I watch LOTS of TV.

We must watch different stuff, because the shows I watch are promoting the HELL out of it. It is one of those shows they have promoted SO much, I don't even want to watch it. LOL!

6. We use YouTube TV and skip the commercials too.

But sometimes, we get hit with a few or are watching something live and can't skip. WE watch a few different NBC shows, so that is probably why I have seen it (scrolling by fast).
