Buick produced only a few TV commercials for 1957. In comparison to earlier years, Buick had no major TV series sponsorship.

For internal salesmen training, Buick continued its DOT (Dealer Training Organisation) program. But even this was cut down to only nine videos (Buick produced 22 for 1956!).
