I stopped watching the "idiot box" three years ago. Its amazing how ridiculus tv becomes even after three months of not watching it. Think about this, you sit in front of a screen full of people being paid to pretend to have a life instead of going out and enjoying your own.

I believe that's called "acting."  And yes, it's terrible. Films, plays, puppet shows, various forms of dance, story-telling.....all worthless!

On basic cable?  yeah.  Most of it is.

Almost none at all. I actually try my damnedest to ignore whatever my parents are watching when I happen to be in the same room with the TV.

Fringe is a scifi show based on magic. It blows.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Fringe does suck though. Also, you can add The Simpsons to my list of regularly watched shows.

I hardly consider a majority of what is out there on tv and in movies to be acting by any stretch of imagination.  40's,50's and 60's movies, that's acting.

That wasn't acting The real acting was back in the Shakespeare days when women were played by men...now that's real acting.

Almost none.  Quit paying for cable when it clicked that my subscription helped pay for the slavery propaganda.  When my rabbit ears don't work next spring I guess I'll miss the local round-table newsy type show on the PBS channel but that's it.

I went with 1-2 hours per day.  I also frequently keep my TV on while I'm doing other stuff like cooking or cleaning and not actually watching it or paying attention, so I don't count that.

I do the same with streaming radio. It's fun to get tunes blasting throughout the whole house.

I don't have a TV or cable.  I use my landlords TV to play videogames sometimes, much more fun.  Sometimes I see funny TV clips on Digg.com, though.
