3-5 shows, but that's a bit misleading. In my situation (no cable, crappy DSL ergo no streaming, not enough OTA channels available here [river valley in the middle of Greater Podunk] to make an antenna worth the hassle), by the time I start watching a show, I already have a pretty good idea that I'll like it (from recommendations and reviews) and a pretty substantial investment (either in optical discs or downloading-via-crappy-DSL), so the chances of me quitting any earlier than that are pretty slim. If I'm watching a new-to-me show, there's a reason for it; serendipitous "Hey, that looks interesting, I'll give it a shot" explorations aren't on the menu.
