How much television do you watch

How much television do you watch daily?  Do you generally have it on as background noise?  

Prior to cutting our cable back to the very basic of basic channels the television was on most of the day.  The best thing we did was cut it way back and now we can go days without ever turning it on.

I watch way too much. If I'm home it's probably on. I'd say probably 3 hours a day.

Too much!  I have finally gotten myself to be "ok" without the background noise of the tv, and I now I am actually less stressed.  Too much stimulation I think.  I could still watch it like four hours straight late at night and not notice all the time go by.

I have a few shows that I really like to watch. The kids each get to pick one show in the morning while they are waking up and having breakfast. Besides that it's off. I don't feel the need for background noise like I did before having kids. I welcome the rare moments of silence.

I turn it on the music channels that are just music. No videos, just the title of the songs that bounces around on the screen. I love those channels. I can leave it on those all day.

 Maybe an hour or two a week.

I have erratic tv watching habits. I guess i'm a binge tv watcher. I don't watch much tv...never have it on a background, but i can get sucked into a marathon on occasion. I do like to watch tv when i am folding laundry so i guess i watch at least 3 hours a week, not including morning and evening news.

I'd rather not have cable. I can get anything i want from the interwebs.

 Not a lot.  I keep it on as background when I make dinner.  I am almost always doing something else when the TV is on, there are no shows that I really watch every week or paying close attention.

Besides Barney once, MAYBE twice a day, not much. We try to catch sports games and try to DVR some shows that we like, but rarely get to actually enjoy them. I cannot stand having the television on for background noise!
