"TV Dinners" is a song by Texas rock band ZZ Top, taken from their eighth studio album, 1983's 10-times platinum "Eliminator".

It is a simple, beat-driven tune with humorous lyrics about pre-packaged, microwavable meals. Released as a single, it reached #38 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.

A music video was made, utilizing both live action and claymation. It is interesting to note that bassist Dusty Hill plays synthesizer in the video and drummer Frank Beard does not wear sunglasses (a trademark ZZ Top accessory).
