Who "owns" the tv in your house?

This isn't a question for those who don't own a tv, or the one's who only watch like an hour a week. If you normally watch some amount of tv everyday, who win's the station battle? During the day, like before dinner time, typically if the tv is on it's on Nick Jr or Sprout. But come 6pm it's mommies time to watch the local news, and then the world news. I grew up the same way, we got to watch an hour after school, then it was adult tv for the rest of the night. And we got saturday morning cartoons. SO doesn't get home till after midnight, so he watches tv when everyone else is sleeping. So what about you ladies? All child shows all the time, or does mommy have a designated tv time?

  • i dont care much for tv anymore. all of the shows i like to watch come on after they go to bed. all i ask is that i get the tv at 2pm for OLTL. however their cartoons do go off when we eat dinner and then they stay off for the rest of the evening.

  • Sadly my girls :( that's until daddy comes home with their tv. He is off doing training right now and took my girls tv with him to keep him sane at night while in the barracks. When he gets back, I am sure it will go back to my hubby having the say on what's on the tv. I don't mind as long as it is not tuesday night when teen mom comes on. One of the only shows I HAVE to watch.
