No. None of us watch TV.

I'm looking forward to the "Can you read?" thread in Book Talk.

To answer, I typically watch a few shows as they air but not on tv. I tend to just check them out on Hulu.

Do porn and video games count? Because technically, you're watching a TV for that (unless you're using a computer), but not necessarily watching TV shows.

But to answer your question, yes, I watch plenty of TV.

Re: Do you watch TV?

Are you really that bored? Stupidest thread ever.

Go back and watch your Anime DVD's since I've seen that most of your posts are related to that.

Broadcast or cable TV - not generally (occasionally I'll turn on the syndicated Simpsons while making dinner or the local network for weather, or the most recent episode on Hulu).
Use a tv - absolutely. Old TV on DVD, movies, video games.

I don't watch it; I look at it.

My grandmother used to use that term. She would want to "look at her programs".

Re: Do you watch TV?

I was quite happy in June when all the TV stations went off the air- I'd thought nobody was watching them and they'd ran out of money. I just got a new TV and I was dismayed to see that they're still on the air after all.

Maybe.

Well, two shows live, three or four others online, if it was just me I would just watch everything online and not worry about paying for cable.

The thought of life without TV frightens me.
