    Just wondering how much of your time you dedicate to T.V over DVDs? I watch TV during the week but usually not on weekends. What about you? IMHO T.V has gone to hell. How much "Friends" episodes can a guy take [​IMG] ?

    I rarely watch TV except for the occasional sporting event. I watch dvd's mostly. I used to watch alot of TV but not anymore. I do like "Enterprise" though.

    TV sucks. Rather, the programming sucks these days. The only reason I have cable is so I can watch hockey.

    Actually, I got to say the History Channel and CNN are okay.

    Over the past few years my TV viewership has dropped way off. The computer has taken over as my primary source of entertainment at home, followed by music and movies on the HT.

    TV watching is waaaaaay off. Have the news on in the morning, watch Frasier, losing interest in X-Files, watch DVDs or LDs the rest of the time. If the cable fell out of the wall, it would take awhile before I noticed.

    Plenty. Even if 99% of everything is crap, there's so much that I'm still interested in much of what's left.

    I don't really watch TV. I spend my "screen-watching" spare time either surfing (web) or watching DVD's.

    Sure, I wish I had time to watch more even.
    Right now all I have time for is football, Scrubs, Boston Public, and Ed.
    The tv might be on a bit more than this but I'm usually not watchign it.

    I do watch tons of TV. But I think I watch the good stuff. And there's plenty of "free" entertainment on TV that is of interest to me. But I know others don't enjoy the episodic nature of TV shows, or just don't enjoy the content. Nothing wrong with that either.
