How much TV do you watch?

Please include some sort of schedule to explain. I can only fit in a couple hours even if I tried. I don't understand how people have hours and hours of free time in their day.

for me...
morning - can't do it... just trying to get everyone out of the house for school or work.
evening - get home at 7, but dinner and putting daughter to bed goes until 9pm. that only gives me a few hours, and that doesn't include doing other stuff around the house, email, surfing the net, going to gym [], etc.

Probably an average of one and a half hours a day.

Pretty much only things i watch are the news, history channel, and late night shows. And occasionally i watch NFL, Soccer, and NBA games.

Only select shows routinely like The Office, otherwise it's just a little before bed at night like home improvement or man vs wild. Not every day, probably a few hours per week

It's probably on for 1-2 hours a day, but 90% of the time it's just background noise. I don't actually pay attention.

Well over 4 hours. I'm addicted to Discovery, Science, Military, and The History Channel. Working nights, there really isn't much else to do when I'm awake all night on my days off. Plus my team has a TV at work with a satellite feed for us to watch.

News, college football, and Monday Night Raw are the only things I make a point of watching. The rest is background noise.

It amazes me how much time and mental energy some people dedicate to keeping up with these fad shows (24, Lost, Grey's Anatomy, etc). I've honestly never seen a single episode of any of them and genuinely don't care to.

My free time is far too valuable.

Wrestling, really?



I watch about 20 mins of news while having my morning coffee. And I'll watch the hockey game whenever it's on, but that's pretty much it.
