Television has become something we take for granted every day. You get home from school, throw on the tube, grab a snack and sit down to watch your favorite show without even thinking about it. TV hasn't always been around and it's certainly changed over the years. Check out these interesting TV facts you probably didn't know.

1In 1950 only 9 percent of people in the US had a television set. By 1960, 90 percent of US households owned a television.

1Mr. Potato Head was the first toy ever advertised on TV. In 1952, Mr. Potato Head commercials ran on television to expose tens of millions of new TV owners to their product.

1Did you know the first toilet ever seen on TV was on the 50s show Leave It To Beaver?

1In 1957, the camera shot Elvis Presley from the waist up for his third appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The first two times he appeared on the show the studio received so much grief because of his wild gyrating that they decided TV viewers would only see the top half of The King. (Gee, I wonder what people would have thought of Madonna?)

1The first television broadcast of the Oscars wasn't until 1953.

1According to a 1997 poll, the average American has seen the movie Star Wars 6.7 times since it came out in 1977 - either in theaters or on TV.

1Did you know that during the 1990s series Baywatch, its cast and crew used 306 pounds of body make-up and one 50-gallon drum of sunscreen each season. (I wonder how much of that was used on Pamela Anderson, alone?)

1 Internationally, Baywatch is the most popular television show in history.

1There is a Superman somewhere in every episode of Seinfeld.
