I used to think EVERYTHING on tv was live, which led to thinking that every time they showed a comercial, they had to get the same actors and everything to do it over again. I thought they had to redo it everytime it was shown... this continued untill i finally asked someone, "wouldn't it be hard to make a comercial be exactly the same every time??" lol

When I was little I used to believe that when you switch off the TV the film you were watching stops exactly there, and you can watch the rest of the film by switching on the TV again (even on the next day or so!).

When I was little I didn't understand that TV stations only advertised their own programs, so I would get really annoyed when they'd say when a particular show was on but never mention what channel. I used to get so frustrated tuning in and going through all the channels until I found the show I wanted!

When I was about 3 or 4, I thought that a TV worked because there were little people behind the TV. So whenever I was watching Sesame Street or something, I'd look behind the TV and be confused as to why there were no people there.

I used to think that having a bad signal from a tv or radio station meant that other people had already sucked up all the signal before it got to our house, and there wasn't enough to go around.

I used to believe that the laugh tracks you would hear on comedy TV shows were actual people, just like me, in their actual homes laughing. So, I would wait for times when people weren't laughing and I would laugh out loud, really loud, so that everyone out there across the country could hear ME! Sometimes I would try doing a really loud "BOO HOO" during sad parts of non-comedy shows, just in case. Boy was I full of myself or what?

when i was a kid and used to watch quiz shows that offered the 'holiday of a lifetime', I actually thought that you went on holiday for the rest of your life!

I used to think the people in TV could see me and that the violence was real in movies. I also believed that TVs stop programming "late at night" when I go to sleep, which was around 9PM.

When I was about four or five, I believed that the tv worked like the vcr: if you turned it off in the middle of the show, it'd pick up right where you left it. I thought that my tv was broken for months because when I had to turn off 'My Little Pony' to go to school, I'd come home, turn it back on and there would be an afternoon talk show on. I was always so disappointed.

I once voted (aged 9ish) for a kids' TV-presenter by pressing a 'button' on the screen and watching the metres rise.

I actually believed they had somehow got a touch-screen capacity for the 'vote'.

I felt cheated that my vote didn't win.

My vote was the smelly tramp thrown in for comic effect (by rising furthest in the 'voting' chart, and then being pipped by the pre-selected presenter).

when i was little, i thought that with the right tool, you could open up the back of the tv and go inside. i was quite upset when i discovered i couldn't go inside and visit the characters of my favorite shows.

I used to believe that when you turned the TV off ,all the programs would stop. so i would leave the TV on when there was a program i didnt like just because i thought it was the only way to watch the next one.

When I was little, I turned on the TV to find there was no programme on and there was a still image of a little girl playing naughts and crosses on a black board. I didn't know this meant there was nothing on and I thought this little girl was a mean little cow, so I tried to indimidate her by staring her down to make her put the programmes back on! Needless to say I couldn't stare her down...

I used to think that a television show would stop when you turned off the set. This meant you could watch it for a little while, go play, and then pick up where you left off when you returned. I was devastated to learn that life revolves aorund the programming, rather than the programming around life. I never saw the end of that episode of Fraggle Rock...

When I was a kid, I believed our TV received the ‘white shows’, because we were a ‘white family’, and there were ‘black shows’ which were broadcast to the homes of ‘black families’. When we started getting ‘Amos ‘n Andy’, I loved it and thought we were getting to watch one of those other broadcasts.

When I was little I used to believe that when we watched TV that we were watching in on what was happening in the house next door, and I believed that the house on the end of our street couldnt watch TV because they didnt have a next door neighbor. Gosh I was a loser, lol.
