  • How much do you watch TV?

    Just curious here, because I'm absolutely sick of it. These days I watch maybe 4 hours a week of TV and that's because I try to catch wrestling (yes I still watch it) whenever I can. I used to just watch the late night shows, but I don't even care about them anymore. Used to watch The Simpsons on weekdays, but most nights I'm out of the house by 60 so I miss it anyway. I hardly ever catch the new episodes on Sunday. Every once in a while, I watch Futurama and Family Guy on Adult Swim.

    TV just irritates me more than anything. I'd hate it when we were in the living room having a conversation and someone decided to turn the TV on super loud just to see what's on. Not to mention that the TV world is completely overrun with reality shows, celebrity news, and Enzyte commercials.

    I just hate when someone sits there and just watches TV all day. It's probably no worse than me sitting on a computer for hours on end, but I'm not bothering anybody with the brainwashing noise of "Who's my baby's Daddy?" and "How much my favorite celebs spend on dogfood."

    Maybe I'm alone in this, but my TV just gets used for video games, wrestling, and the occasional movie. Otherwise, I could do without it just fine..

    I don't even have cable. I walk across the street to my friend's place to watch Psyc on Fridays and that's about it. Once in a while I'll watch Futurama and Metalocalypse if it's on when I'm around.

      A lot. I'm different than a lot of people in that I don't watch/particularly like movies. I prefer the episodic/serialized nature of TV.
      Some shows that are still in production that I watch are Monk, Psych, Scrubs, King of the Hill, Daily Show, Colbert, Veronica Mars

          I don't watch TV. Unless hanging out at this forum counts as TV, then lately I've been watching too much of it.

                  Only when I'm eating or occasionally when I'm going to sleep. Not cable just DVD's.

                    I watched more TV this week than I have in a long time. And it was just because I was sick. Mostly though I keep TV watching to a minimum, not that I don't like it but because there are so many other fun things to do. I spend alot more time online and playing guitar than I do sitting in front of the boob tube.

                        I like South Park, 24, House and The Office. I usually miss at least half of them a week though. I really could care less if people watch TV, it's just how you choose to waste your time. Are video games or hanging out in a guitar forum any more productive?

                            I watch about 30-45 odd minutes of news in the morning while getting dressed, having breakfast, reading the paper, etc, BBC, CNN or Bloomberg. Most nights I turn on the watch the headlines. I typically get in about two full football games a week, plus some highlights. Though at busy times in the year (like november or april), I might get up to four or five games a week.

                            And that's about it.

                            I don't watch either movies or TV shows via cable and pretty well gave that up in 2001. Instead I buy or borrow DVDs. Typically I'll watch those one to three nights a week, but if I'm seeing a lot of movies at the cinema, I'll pass on that.

                            So maybe 20-24 hours in a really heavy week, 7-8 hours in a light week, as little as 2-3 hours a week during the summer months.

                              If I lived alone, I'm not even sure if i would own a TV, and i certainly wouldnt have cable.

                              Usually around lunch time, I'll make a sandwich, and watch TV for about 15 minutes.

                              Sometimes I'll watch MSNBC or comedy central with my morning coffee while i wake up.

                              The wife gets home around 4pm, and instantly turns on the TV, and doesnt turn it off until she goes to bed... Even while we eat dinner it's on, so I guess I'm sort of watching it, but not usually paying any attention to it.

                              If i want to spend some time with her, the TV is usually on, which is quite annoying. This has been a source of fights in the past. Last night she wanted to play cards, but wanted to keep the TV on...

                              Then when she goes to bed, she watches TV until she falls to sleep. TV actually gets me pissed off and makes me unable to sleep if i try to fall asleep with it on, so unless i'm looking to get laid, i usually have to let her fall asleep first, and then go to bed.

                              This is going to become a sore subject again... i can tell.

                              Total TV hours for a week... maybe 20 on a heavy week... typical week less than 10. On a week that my wife isn't around (rare) probably about 3 hours.

                              That said, I find it hard to believe that the average person watches 4+ hours of TV per day... That is almost 20% of your life that you are just sitting there getting stupider.
