The Commercials is the fourth volume of the Television's Greatest Hits series of compilation albums by TVT Records. Released in 1989, it included a number of jingles and commercials from different eras.



According to a review in Allmusic, "If nothing else, this album proves that TV ads stick to the brain, despite the best of intentions. Upon first hearing these jingles, listeners will be amazed to find themselves singing along spontaneously, and surprised at how they come back to full consciousness in spite of not having been heard (most of them) for decades. That said, it's great fun to hear most of these commercials dealing with food, cigarettes, household cleaners, beer, cars, and soft drinks, among other products. Within the history of these ads, listeners hear the voices of personalities such as Edie Adams and Dinah Shore. Also, included is the original Coke commercial that led to the pop hit "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing. A great album for trivia buffs and couch potatoes."

The album catalog was later acquired by The Bicycle Music Company. In September 2011, Los Angeles-based Oglio Records announced they were releasing the Television's Greatest Hits song catalog after entering into an arrangement The Bicycle Music Company.
