What is the point in talking to the TV?

I have a BIL (who lives in my basement mind you) who sits up all night watching TV and YELLING at it like they can actually hear him or something... WTH? Why do people talk to the TV?

Anyone else know someone that talks to the TV? Does it annoy you too?

  • I do it LOL. I tend to do it during things like Survivor and Big Brother when I don't like what they do.

  • Maybe he got confused from watching the dumb kid shows where they ask questions and the kids are supposed to talk to the TV. Maybe your BIL's actions are what we have to look forward to from all these kids who watch Dora and Diego, etc...LOL
