Does calling a show a "SMASH HIT" make it so?

    its all about spin. My favorite is how Disney calls every single movie they have ever made a classic. If its over 5 years old, its "Classic"... if its less or just came out, they call it an "instant classic". Stupid marketing. Probably fools some sheeple I'm sure, or they wouldn't go through the effort...

    No. If you called it a purple llama would it be one?
