    @happilyeveraftergirl:  I dont care for tv shows much but i do love Christmas movies so this time of year I am all over it! But normally I will watch maybe an hour of TV a day.  DH on the other hand is obsessed with movies/TV.  Not in the ‘as soon as I get home’ way but he will stand infront of the TV waiting for dinner. I have to call his name several times to get him to sit down.  Then when he finally does, he faces the TV to watch it and he gets so into watching it that he barely eats and his food gets cold.  He is also a gamer. *rolls eyes*  I told him our children will not be allowed to watch TV like he was.  I dont want them to become TV obsessed.

    I usually only watch TV on my days off during the week. I just leave it on as background noise as I clean and do laundry while SO’s at work. When he gets home we usually watch movies or shows together on Netflix or putting in a DVD- we have a huge collection

    @nber0815:  +1!

    The TV is probably on for 6 hours a day, but mostly as background noise. I watch maybe an hour? And 30 minutes is Jeopardy.

    I’m a big ol’ Jeopardy Ho!

    I don’t have a working tv. I watch all my shows online. I’d guess I probably watch two hours worth? Maybe three? I do other things while I watch though.

    I don’t have cable but I have Netflix and HBOgo and DVDs.  Once I find something new to watch or a new season comes out I will watch it at night, maybe up to 3-4 hours until I run out of it.  Other times I might not find anything so I might not watch any at all for awhile.  Or I might watch reruns of something I’ve already seen.

    I do love college football and college basketball even more so I will generally have that on TV the entire day Saturday and anytime there is a good game on during the week I will put it on TV.  I generally do other things while following along to the game though like cooking, cleaning, or being online.  Unless it’s my own team then I have full concentration.  I did thanksgiving turkey cookies yesterday while listening to the game on TV (DH watched).

    We have cable so we can watch all of my favorite team’s NHL games, and we record F1 races. My Fiance also records Premier League football (English) and watches that when I’m sleeping in on the weekends while he does the ironing. So basically we have cable mostly for sports.

    We record our favorite shows too.. we don’t do a whole lot of mindless TV watching.. it’s usually something specific. With that said, between the sports and our favorite shows, we do have it on every day. We both have pretty demanding jobs so I don’t mind relaxing with the TV. It’s not the only thing we do to unwind and we always get our errands/chores done.

    I used to have Netflix but it really sucks in Canada so I canceled it. I don’t think Hulu is available here either, so our options are somewhat limited.

    The only time I watch TV is if we sit down and watch some Doctor Who during dinner.

    Fiance watches much more than I do, but he manages it well and doesn’t let it get to a point where it bothers me (same with video games).
    We are also SUPER busy lately, and TV is the first thing to get tossed to the side if we need more time.

    I watch about about 2 hours a day, depending on what shows are on. Sometimes we might watch an extra half hour if there’s an interesting show on the Food network aha 😉

    @jadlnc:  OMG I just started watching The Tudors on hulu and I am obsessed.  I started a couple weeks ago and I am almost through season 3 already.  Definitely worth watching! 

    I typically have the tv on 3-4 hours per night, but I am not always sitting there staring at it.  I’ll have it on while I’m cooking, or while I’m running on the treadmill in the workout room in our apartment building.  I really just like the background noise.  🙂

    I also get into my series shows, but I prefer to watch them online so there’s fewer commercials, and I can watch whenever I want (we don’t have dvr).

    Too much. At least 4 hours a day most days. It’s sad I should be doing something far more productive with my time.

    @happilyeveraftergirl:  Totally agree! Our kiddos will not watch TV – I managed to survive without cable until I was 23. It’s just unncessary. When I was growing up we’d rent movies from time to time, and I think that’s enough – IMO kids need exercise, stimulation, time to be creative and role-play, socialization with other kids, etc.
