    Many people still have TVs and they still sell them so they still exist.

    While yes most people don’t watch live tv nowadays but people still use TV’s

    I have five TVs.

    Better question:  Why do we say "dial" the phone?  Dial phones went out about 40 years ago.

      People used to drive a team of horses.  Drive didn't originally mean piloting an automobile.

      In other words, language evolves and no one is in charge of it.

    Eh??? You do know what a TV IS don`t you?

    Its that Oblong thing with a screen that adorns the walls, or sits on a cabinet in 95% of peoples homes.

    FALSE. I just bought a TV last week.

    If it's on a TV it's a TV show. If online it's a video. Way back then we called the TV an idiot box. I don't know what's worse to call today's LCDs.
