    Honestly, I stopped long ago.

    Too much junk nowadays for me to even enjoy it so I just watch whatever I want on my computer.

    You?

    The channels can change, you know. Junk on one channel? Try another!

    I watch very little TV...but it does still happen. Mainly just a couple of specific shows. Other than that it's internet/DVD's/Blu-Ray's for me.

    The last time my TV was on to watch TV and not play video games or watch a movie was October of last year. I watch what I want when I want via online resources.

    I stopped watching TV for more than 5 years. But when I moved into my own apartement, some years later I got PayTV and there are some channels like Cartoon Network, Animax, Scifi and others that make watching TV worthwhile every now and then. But without the PayTV channels it would not be worth it. There are some shows on the regular channels that I like to watch, but not on a regular basis. And I would not miss them.

    And there is one thing I hate about TV today: There are quite very few shows that I love and like. But when there are some shows that I like, they get dumped. And when I search the internet to find out about it, there is always one thing in common: They were shows made by FOX! I hate FOX.

    I've just watched Gone in 60 seconds actually with Nicholas Cage and Angelina Jolie. Still a great movie.
    I don't watch TV as much as I use to. I usually just go on the web to watch the shows I want to watch. Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs and Heavy Metal Task Force come to mind.

    You should do something cool with your TV if you don't use it. Pull and Elvis and blast that bitch while eating a fried banana and peanut butter sandwich or something.

    Not unless there's something real specific I'm after. Broadcast TV is, in my opinion, junk; and cable is 600 more channels of junk.

    TV? You mean that Mystical thing that was free from reality?

    I don't watch much TV, I just watch DVDs all week long....only thing I watch on the TV now these days is the news......

    Thing is now I know that most shows will end up on DVD so really no point to watch em and just wait for em to come out on DVD...only thing I did watch was Stargate Universe....but that's been cancelled and only has like a few episodes left to air then I won't have anything else to watch.

    Heck I watch more anime now these days because there's nothing on TV to watch......except for the occasional old movie...

    yeah, but its the old stuff from 10 years ago like: family guy, roseanne, seinfeld. Ill watch some Top Chef, Ultimate fighter but thats about it. The sitcoms now-a-days are shit and those stupid contest shows like the dancing one, the hasselhoff one and american idol are pure garbage

    Yup. I usually watch movies that are on, or something that peaks my interest like Ancient Aliens on the History channel. I really like Pawn Stars too. Haven't been watching Adult Swim as much though.

    I cancelled cable, along with three Tivo subscriptions, years ago and haven't missed it.

    I do have an HD antenna for football on Sundays and the occasional PBS program (like Oregon Field Guide), but other than that the sets in the house are used for video games, films and streaming programs (both downloaded and from Netflix).
