If you’ve ever watched late night television you probably have seen an infomercial. Do you want to know if any of the products are worth the hype?
When you are having trouble sleeping, do you reach for the TV remote? If so, infomercials are there to keep you company, but they’re probably not the best thing to watch to help you fall asleep. Infomercials are made to be exciting and catchy. They dramatize a problem you didn’t know you had, make you think you need their solution, and leave you wondering, “Why didn’t I think of that?” and “Where can I get one?” But are they really worth the cost? The short answer most of the time is “no.”
