I just had to ask this!
Whether I watch it or not, my TV is on from the minute I walk in the door from work (6:30 p.m.) until I leave for work the next morning (8:00 a.m.). It’s not that I am necessarily watching it, but it is on.
Now, I will admit that I do watch way too much of it and know about way too many shows, but I think that perhaps I just like the background noise (I live alone). Then again, it could be the fact that ever since I was a wee tot I have always had one in my room. I go to sleep with the TV on, and when I wake up in the morning it is still on.
What about everyone else?
