Every time you turn on the TV you se people smoking? Really? I cannot at all recognize that.


As of 2015 there were 409 scripted TV-shows in the U.S. That means that there must be at the very least 2000 characters. You must then see a lot of smoking characters.

But you have mention three that smokes. Three.

Could you ad to that a handful more characters that smoke? If not, I really must remain skeptical that you indeed see smoking every time you turn on the TV..

For nearly 30 years smoking from movies, tvs and live shows were banned by the FCC.


Smoking on television or in films was never banned, I think you might be confusing the tobacco advertising ban which went into effect in 1971.
