Abstract: "As seen on TV" is a nameplate for products advertised on television in the United States for direct-response mail-order through a toll-free telephone number. Typically the packaging for these items includes a standardized red seal in the shape of a CRT television screen with the words "AS SEEN ON TV" in white, an intentional allusion to the logo of the ubiquitous TV Guide magazine. 

The pervasive presence of "as seen on TV" products is the subject for much comedy on TV, often exaggerating the typical pitches of "as seen on TV" products. One such example of mockery is the fictional "Spishak" company, a series of sketches on MADtv.

The red logo and phrase is now part of public domain and can be used on packaging or used in business without a fee or infringing on someone's trademark.

Companies that produce generic versions of As Seen on TV products may use a modified version of the red logo, their version displaying "Like on TV" or "As Seen on TV in some countries". But this Logo can be registered in some counties like trademark.

In Mexico the phrase "as seen on TV" is translated as "como lo vio en TV" (literally "as you saw it on TV") (Wikipedia, 2011).
