    It amazes me the # of guys in school, working, all the other responsibilities of life. Like me I have 3 kids, work full time, own a house, have a huge yard, a car & etc.

    Trying to workout can be difficult so my tv time is almost nothing. Do uou watch much tv? Is it a priority for you v.s. working out & etc.

    I only watch what's free on hulu.com in the comedy section. Sometimes I go apeshit with history channel excerpts on the YouBoobz. Other than that, I disowned the TV in 2007 and only watch movies when the guy is paying cuz I', broke.

    I watch it as background stuff going on. Like that necessary noise in order to stay focused. But I have specific shows I watch and I've cut it down to about 10 hours a week. I don't consider it that bad cause I'm not really actively watching them. They act as background stuff but I'm more tuned into it than not (if that makes ANY sense).

    I don't watch TV so much, but I am addicted to movies, so I watch at least four good ones a week. And I also spend a lot of time on the internet.

    I'm a movie guy. TV today is too much "Reality" based. If I want reality I can just step outside my front door.

    I watch very little TV, much less than when I was a kid in the 1950s & 60s. Mostly I watch educational, news, movies, with a lamentable weakness for reality cop shows and "World's Dumbest" kinda stuff. I haven't seen a network sitcom or drama in months, don't even know most of the current ones I hear being discussed online.

    I have a 27" iMac computer, with a satellite TV adapter. The TV programs appear in a small window among my other online stuff on the screen, like RJ in a browser window (though the TV feed can go full-screen when I wish). If it's something I really want to see in HD I join my partner in our bedroom with the large new flat screen I bought us (really mainly for his enjoyment, I almost never watch it by myself).

    I find it odd, because one of my degrees is in TV & Radio Broadcasting, and I really used to be into that. But I suppose Army service weaned me away from it, at times not seeing a TV for weeks on end. And despite having several hundred satellite channels available to us now, versus the mere 9 or so we had when I was a kid, I find most of them boring. icon_sad.gif

    I'm a big fan of tv boxsets on DVD, and in fact I used it to catch up on some really well done US shows I missed when I was living abroad--Nip/Tuck and Veronica Mars, for instance. Next I'm looking at Deadwood, I think.

    I will be canceling my cable cause it is too distracting. I find alot of the times im just clicking through the channels to find something to watch, but there's never anything on.

    I do however commit myself to 1 or 2 shows, those would be Mad Men and 30 Rock

    don't watch alot of TV---I would rather spend my time working out and running or simply being out in nature. as for games---I would rather have reality than virtual reality. Usually if I like a movie I wait until it comes out on DVD and buy it. I have a nice collection of films on running

    I work 7:30-4:30. Get to one gym at 5:00 and usually at another gym for the 6:30 Krav Maga. I get home at about 8:00. Not really much time for TV in that time. TV and movies is usually saved for the weekends unless I manage to fit in a little before I get to bed.

    That's with basically only having myself to devote time to. Not sure what things will be like when/if I have to split time between all that plus another person...

    I watch too much TV right now. I took out the cable in my room anymore, so I'll be able to focus on other things.

    The only real thing I'd pay attention to was America's Best Dance Crew on MTV, but MTV's not on cable anymore :/ So I've made it a habit to turn on the TV but just listen to what's going on while I was on the laptop.

    I don't watch TV much anymore except for the news or background noise.

    I do watch a lot of TV programmes though via downloads.

    Always been a big movie geek so I probably watch 7-10 per week depending on my mood- I watched Death In Venice last night and wanted to kill myself LOL

    Well, isn't this interesting? We now have hundreds of channels available, either cable or satellite, and we're watching LESS?

    In the 1950s my family received 7 broadcast channels that came in via our roof antenna, from New York City & New Jersey (2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13), and later a few more when UHF reception began. That was better than most of the rest of the US at that time. And I watched TV for many hours every day, that annoyed my parents, who thought I should be doing better things. Now I can select from hundreds of satellite channels, and I watch TV very little today, maybe 6 hours a week.

    Curious contrast. I'm sure my late parents would be amused by this change in my behavior. Being retired, I certainly have the spare time for TV. I just lack the interest. I prefer the interactive Internet.

    It puts me in control, and I get to contact real people, in real time. When I want to sit back and be passively lectured or entertained I'll do that, but I prefer interaction with humans. It's just how I am, so the Internet has replaced TV for me.

    Nope I spend about atleast an hour or hour and 30 mins on the tv everyday. The only time I watch tv is when either a basketball game, family guy when Im about to go to bed, and a really good movie.
