Yep. I've said it before: shows are just the filler for the time between commercials. And the truly sad fact: whether you buy the particular products being advertised or not, your money is being used to pay for the commercials (the cost of the ads is built-in to the price of everything you buy)--so it's not possible to actually "steal" anything that appears on "TV" anywhere (you're just getting your money's worth... so torrent away! ).
