How often do you watch TV?

Normally, when I watch TV, it's not a lot. The only shows I really watch are Charmed, Family Guy, and Eureka. I watch TV for about 3 hours a day, and I wanted to know if this is too much or a fair amount of time. Some people say it's too much, but that's not the case. I think that too much would be watching TV for 5 or 6 hours a day, and I don't. I want you people to tell me just how much you watch TV, and how much you think is too much.

No more than three hours a day of TV should be watched. Play games, read a book, go on the internet, exercise. There are so many activities for you to choose from.

That's basically what I do, although going on the internet or playing games can be just as lazy. Haha, but at least it's something different. :D

I don't watch all that much tv anymore either. Only when something is on I want to see and I'm at home. I usually only watch television when one of my favorite TV series are playing. I don't think three hours is all that much either.

I watch TV while I'm on my laptop every night, and once in awhile during the day. I like to check out channel 9 news to start my day.

Cool. I don't watch too much news, but I like to check it every once in a while. :)

I watch TV maybe once or twice a week. There are times when I am just too tired to work and I will take the day off. Until after Halloween, I will even be too busy to watch TV. I can't wait until the week of Thanksgiving so I can have the next 3 holidays off!

Once or twice a week? Wow. You must be really busy. Hahaha. You don't get Thanksgiving off? What a rip off.

Whoa! That's a long time. Haha. Just kidding. 4 and a half hours? Eh, I guess that's not too much. What shows do you like the most? You're lucky you have a laptop, because I don't...yet...haha.

That sucks. What about DVR? I don't use it often, but it helps when you're not around to watch the shows you like. :) I don't get the part about 4 to 5 clocks per day. What did you mean?

I seldom watch TV, for I have no TV in my room now. I've got a computer and sometimes I just watch some TV programms on live. Most of the TV series are avaliable on the internet and you can watch them altogether without waiting day by day.

Interesting. I don't watch much live TV, but when we got our cable cut off not too long ago, I was stuck watching this show where they sold jewelry and properties. I thought it was a pretty good show, because I like rocks. Haha, and as for the internet thing, I usually can't find full TV shows online. Only a few, but if you can, that's pretty cool. Plus I don't like waiting for the shows to download. Haha

I have several shows that I like to watch during the regular season, but during the off season I rarely watch television at all. I watch maybe 2 hours a night during the regular season. I think anything more than 3 hours a night is pushing it on being too much.
