My husband is great father because of examples like Cosby, Family Matters and other family shows. He studied biology in college because of shows like Mythbusters and Bill Nye. We loved Reading Rainbow and read about a book a week each. So its not all bad and some lives are actually better because of it. Its all about what you watch.

TV is not the problem. Parents allowing TV, video games, friends and society to be a bigger influence than they are on their own child. Many parents probably should get off the computer or DVR their favorite shows and play a game. Many choose to do other things to avoid playing with their kids so the kids are only influenced by friends, TV, music and video games. That is on the parents for not doing better.
My son is kept active and has little time for video games or TV. We are at the park, bike riding, golfing, playing with Nerf guns outside and sometimes playing a board game indoors. We do stuff with out child. We make it a priority to be his biggest influence. TV is not the bad guy lazy parenting is.
