I watch the TeeVee constantly. There is always a TV on when I’m at home. Always. Except when I’m sleeping (and sometimes, even then). And despite that, I know nothing about anything that’s on TV. Nothing. I don’t follow any series on any networks. No sit-coms, no dramas, no singers I think suck anyway, no Nasty Housewives of Boise, Idaho, or whatever. I’m an inveterate surfer.
Mostly I watch sports and movies. And generally I kill the early evening surfing the Dope and watching reruns – Friends, How I Met Your Mother, an occasional MA*SH**. I’m leaning heavily toward ditching cable altogether and just going with Netflix and online programming.
Same here. No TV on the TV but I sometimes (not often) watch TV shows on Netflix. I just finished watching all the episodes Of “The Killing” which was an excellent crime drama. When I’m home its mostly the computer or reading.
I still haven’t gotten around to cancelling my cable service–mostly because visitors tend to like watching it–but I spend essentially zero hours watching stuff on a channel. I do however watch several shows via online sources (probably 2 hours a week on average). I’m 34. A 55" screen is still very nice for watching stuff, but the idea of “channels” is nonsense in this day and age.
Tossed my old CRT TV in the trash when I moved last year, though I had already stopped watching it years ago. I still watch some TV when I’m visiting my parents or happen to be somewhere with the TV on, but that amounts to only a few hours per month. If I feel like watching a TV show, I buy DVD boxes and watch them on my computer.
It’s hard for me to answer this question. Yes, the TV is on quite a bit, but it’s mostly tuned to Nick Jr. My toddler son has a lot of favorite shows and when he’s awake, he gets to choose what we watch. So if you include things like “Team Umizoomi” and “Dora the Explorer”, then yes I still watch TV. But I pretty much never get to watch anything I actually like.
I watch TV more when I’m with my wife and daughter - Laura and I like to crawl in bed and watch whatever is on, or catch up on DVR recordings. When I’m by myself I tend to turn the TV to ESPN and spend my time on my laptop, talking to you fine people.
I watch Justified, Archer, Awake, Daily Show, Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, Through the Wormhole & Nova.
Laserkitty watches CSI, American Horror Story, Archer, Happy Endings, HIMYM, Hoarders (guilty pleasure).
Daughter (who is 5) watched Phineas & Ferb, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Through the Wormhole, & Nova.
My TiVo is generally about 50% full, and I clear stuff regularly.
We also Netflix stuff like Invader Zim, Portlandia, various movies.
Throughout the last year I’ve started using it less. I’ve not been actively ignoring it, I just spend almost all my free time on my PC. I would have been using it to watch Formula 1 but the BBC only has the right to show half the races this year. There’s nothing showing that demands I watch it live (like sport or Doctor Who) so I use the BBC iPlayer instead. The other free channels have online players too but never broadcast anything that interests me anyway. Along with Netflix and Lovefilm I have more than enough to entertain myself during those rare periods when I’m not playing a PC game.
I’ve been considering getting rid of my TV and buying a bigger monitor.
