People on TV can see what you're doingThis section contains beliefs all on a common theme: People on TV can see what you're doing. Show most recent or highest rated first or go back to tv.
When I was about 8, I was wondering how they knew what kind of people watched TV shows, since I'd heard things like "75% of our viewers are male!" or "800 people watch our show!" and so on. I came to the conclusion that they had cameras in every TV and could see you while you watch it and judge your reaction.
I'm about to turn 14 and I STILL refuse to change clothes in front of a TV that is turned on. Lol.
Me and my sister used to think that the newsreader on the telly could see us and we used to pull faces at him or her to make them laugh.
When I was about 5-6 years old I believed that the people in the TV could see us . One Night my mom told me to put on my P.Js. I was'nt going to do it in front of Bewitched. So I did it hiding behind our chair. Yes Im that old!!!
I used to believe that people on t.v. could see me. Once in awhile, I would flip off Mr. Rogers ( kids show host, make-believe, etc) and then feel guilty. It was always Mr. Rogers, or the weatherman for some reason.
When I was about 6, I used to think that Lorne Greene from Bonanza could see me through the television, and I refused to change into my pajamas without hiding behind a chair. Interestingly enough, he was the only one I thought could see.
When i was little, I used to think that the news anchors could see what you were doing.
So one day I wanted to change my shirt in front of the TV and I said to my mom, "I dont want Mr.G to see!"
THEN she explained that they cant see us. shocked me
I used to believe that the people on TV could see me. So I would constantly wave to the people determined to get their attention.
I used to believe that the people on tv could see into our house when they were on, so I used to hide behind the sofa when I got changed for bed! I was especially freaked out when in later years Noel Edmonds really could see in to people's rooms!
I used to believe that the people who give the news on television could see what you were doing, so always with my sister we tried to change before the news.
When my mother was a child, she believed that since she could see the people on TV they could see her too. Accordingly, she would never turn on the television unless she was properly dressed. Until this day, nearly 43 years later my mohter will not watch tv in her pajamas.
We used to have our bath right before the news was on at 6pm and so we used to get dressed in front of the TV, except for my brother who hid behind the couch so the news readers couldn't see him - the only problem was the couch sat in front of the glass siding door that our neighbours could see clearly through.
I used to think people on the telly could see me. I hated getting my pyjamas on in front of Gordon Honeycomb.
I used to believe that people on television speak to me & look at me !
I used to believe that news presenters could see you through the screen just like you could see them. When watching the news i would always try and look very intellectual and my sister would always stop picking her nose.
I once believed that newscasters could see you through the telly 'cos they were looking straight at you, and was always on my best behaviour in front of the tv. :)
I used to believe that the people on TV could see you. Just like you were able to see them. So I would never change clothes in front of the TV while it was on. My older, and wiser sister, told me that "they" (the people inside the TV) could see you even when it was off!! That was 45 years ago and I still don't have a TV in my bedroom - just in case "they" really can see!
When watching T.V. when very young I used to believe that the people inside the television could see me as well as me being able to see them, I always made sure I was dressed when watching T.V.!!! I also used to listen to music on the radio a lot and believed that the pop-groups and singers were actually in the studio with the D.J. and played their latest song live when he introduced them. Eventually I said to myself "I think he cheats, and plays records and that the Rolling Stones aren't there with him after all."
When my mom was about 3 or 4, she believed people inside the tv could see her. She thought John Wayne was hott, so everytime he came on tv she'd get her rocking chair out and show off for him. She remembers trying to walk all "pretty" in front of the tv to try and impress him!! Haha.
My mother always allowed my sisters and me watching movies like Ghost, Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman... (you know, all the super appropriate movies for kids). And I used to believe while watching TV that the people in movies and television shows could see me, I could especially tell in those intensely emotional close-up shots in those movies. I would curve my eyebrows and try to be dramatic subtly during these moments thinking maybe they would adopt me to Hollywood as a terrific talent. I was also very scared to pick my nose while the TV was on...just in case that made them change their minds.
one time my brother and i were acting up in the family room, and the tv was on, and mr rogers was just about to come on, and my mom told us, "you'd better behave, because mr rogers can see you!" and i was horrified that mr rogers would see us misbehaving and be mad at us so after that i was always very well behaved during his show.
