Is your TV on most of the day in the background?

My tv is always on, usually just the news or weather or music, and some of the time I catch up on my shows while watching my son.

He doesn't pay attention to it at all unless Sesamee Street is on.

Just wondering if this is the same for anyone else?

  • My daughter likes to watch movies like Wall E and Madagascar. I have had to start limiting it, though, because she will sit and watch movies all day long. Well... on and off all day long. Now I allow 2 movies a day. The rest of the time the TV is usually off. I don't have any "shows" that are on during the day... I'm a primetime TV gal lol.

  • its on in the mornings then I take my older 2 to school and its off.

    we don't really turn it back on. never really thought about it.

    if she wants to watch something I'll turn it back on but most often not.

  • Yes I have it on-a lot. I can't stand not having background noise. But we don't watch it all day.

  • It used to be on for background noise. Now that my son is old enough to sit still for a few minutes he likes to watch one of his shows, then he's off to play again and I change the station to news or something that won't drive me crazy with kiddie songs!

  • Ours is always on even if we are not watching it & we don't watch that much t.v.! It goes off when we go to bed or leave the house. It is comforting to have noise in the background as sick as that may sound, lol!
