InfomercialAn infomercial is a television commercial that is as long as a typical television program. Infomercials are also referred to as paid programming and are often shown during off-peak hours, such as late at night or early in the morning. The word is a portmanteau formed from information and commercial.
Informercials proliferated in the United States after 1984, when the FCC eliminated regulations on the commercial content of television which were established in the 1950s and 1960s.
Well known infomercial personalities include George Foreman (of George Foreman Grill fame), Mike Levey, Ron Popeil, and Tony Robbins.
In order to be profitable, the products sold on infomercials are usually priced five or more times their wholesale cost.
