Why no cast iron on cooking shows?

With the exception of one or two recipes on Americas Test Kitchen, I pretty much never see professional chefs use cast iron on TV, whether PBS or the FN. Yet experienced cooks on this site (including me) are constantly touting the virtues of cast iron. So why not on TV? My own theory is that the TV chefs love to impress us with the saute pan flip, and I don't know too many TV chefs with forearms that big.
