i noticed that, and after the break they didn't do a "Hawaii Five-O is sponsored by Chevy" ad. I've noticed the last couple years lots of shows, including reality shows, removing badges or blurring them. I don't know why, it's not like that's an endorsement. Very strange.

GM can't afford all the endorsements with all the recalls going on

maybe so......but in the past GM paid big bucks to have their cars as the main rides....and they had all of the badges on them.....obviously they don't pay for the ability anymore....thus they de-badge them, thus their logo's are not shown.....its all about advertising. YES we all know what the cars/trucks are.....but that's what its all about.

This is hardly anything new.

Watch episodes of 'Dragnet' or 'Adam-12' and in the vast majority of them, if the camera is close enough to read the names on cars, those names have been covered with chrome tape so that they are illegible.

As always, it's a marketing issue. No money, no laundry.
