Most of the time when I watch TV it is to pass the time. My fiance and I Will usually watch Spongebob or something of the like that we both enjoy watching. Sometimes we might watch a movie or something to destress ourselves, so I suppose that would be beneficial. As for watching educational televsion, no we do not.

It is very beneficial. I usually see more sports than t.v. shows these days. I also see movies. I have HBO, Showtime and a few of the Encore channels so when I am not watching a sporting event, then i am watching a movie.

Sometimes I watch just to pass the time. But mostly I just have a few shows that I watch weekly. Since summer is here that means reruns and I'll be doing something to keep myself active enough. When I was younger, I watch TV because it was the only thing that kept me going. My friends were questionable, so I just watched TV to help soothe me.

Well it is a little bit of both. I watch is to pass the time when there is nothing else to do and it is a benefit in one way when i watch the discovery channels or then news, i learn better from tv than in school.

I grew up exposed to watching television. I love watching cartoons then until now that I'm older. I love watching movies, may it be old (black and white era) or new. My answer to your question is both. It's a good past time and I really do learn a lot from watching television. I can be updated on the latest happenings around world. I can learn new things just watching tv. Sometimes, when you want to forget for a while about your real life, I try to watch shows in tune to my mood. If I'm sad, either watched more sad movies or the opposite and try watching a comedy one to lighten up my mood.

I watch TV just for entertainment purposes and to escape the realities of life. I rarely watch educational programming though I will watch some of that with the kids like Dora the Explorer and stuff like that.

I would say watching tv for me is just a pass time. Once in awhile we will watch one of those educational shows or some healthy show that you learn stuff off of but I would much rather be watching a comedy.

I watch TV mainly for news, analysis for current affairs, and discovery . These benefit me a lot. Sometimes , I watch Cartoons and variety-show to relieve myself.

Sometims i watch educational television, sometimes how-to shows- sometimes shows about places i would like to go and sometimes i watch just to waste time with no ulterior motive or benefit at all. so yes i watch t.v. for all those reasons.
