    All the talk show types (including Colbert) using IPads on screen is pretty obvious.
    Steven begged for his on air before it was released.
    (Colbert also pushes Bud Light Lime, Verizon, Doritos and other products.)

    Smallville first 7-8 seasons Kent family farm had an old farm truck and a VW beatle parked out front. Then the new season started and everyone drove a Toyota.


    And the ipad on Entourage this season

    There's also an episode of Psych from earlier this year where they bring up Snyder's pretzels and even mention "of Hanover".

    Just saw blatant Bud Light promotion on this week's Covert Affairs. The sister was pulling 2 beers out of the fridge with a camera view from inside the fridge. She paused long enough, with the labels facing the camera, that there was no way you couldn't tell they were Bud Lights.

    Same ep of Covert Affairs, they gave us two nice long looks - one interior, one exterior - of the BMW that Jai Wilcox was using to stake out Annie's place.

    I also like how they made sure we saw it had a rear camera. :lol:

    IDK if it's been said yet but pretty much everyone on "House" has an Apple laptop and I know at least "13" has an iPhone. It's pretty well in the background however. Also I've noticed that lots of people on HGTV have DirecTV remotes and receivers but I don't think that's actually placed.

    It was a particularly impressive "rear" view camera too, in that it seemed to be showing things that weren't behind, but rather beside the car! :)

    I found it a bit curious how 6 bottles of beer (Bud) sitting on a table all had their labels facing the camera.

    Yeah, that was pretty obvious too but since they had Bud Light in the last episode I didn't feel it was worth bringing up again.

    They had a pretty blatant Sprint mobile wifi ad in The Closer this week.

    It was to the point of Lt Tau commenting on how 'cool' it was as he was holding it up to the camera when the internet signal they were using on a stakeout failed.

    It was definitely cringe worthy. lol

    So blatant and sophomoric that I was embarrassed for them.

    Damn, just watched a movie the other night and the lead character grabbed a twizzler and proclaimed his love for them.
    But I forget now which movie.

    Didn't read all 4 pages, but Heroes had product placement by Nissan for one of their cross-over SUV's (the one Claire drove and had stolen).

    And The Glades used Kia with one of their cross-over SUV's as well. There is prominent remark in the pilot and then a recent episode.
