TV Loves You Back is the fourth studio album by American alternative hip hop group Restiform Bodies. It was released on Anticon in 2008.


Months before Restiform Bodies released TV Loves You Back, the song "Bobby Trendy Addendum" had become available digitally via Impose Magazine.[6]

Their labelmate Tobacco of Black Moth Super Rainbow remixed "Panic Shopper," a song from the album.[7]


Ande Pareti of Soundchek Magazine wrote, "Each song on TV Loves You Back is a carefully concocted trip, and listening to the album in its entirety is delightful substance abuse."[5] The album was described by Vish Khanna of Exclaim! as "the perfectly imperfect soundtrack to an information overloaded yet, ironically, attention deficit addled culture."[2]
