  • Rich Cronin began dating Jennifer Love Hewitt in 1999 after meeting her backstage at the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. The LFO lead singer wrote "Girl on TV" about Hewitt after she asked him to pen her a song. The gesture didn't prevent the actress from dumping Cronin the following year.
  • Hewitt also appeared in the song's music video, which was directed by Gregory Dark (Britney Spears' "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart," Linkin Park's "One Step Closer").
