I know they are just for entertainment, but damn I can't think of a less productive activity. I think it's a rather sad state of affairs when people ask me "what I do" when I say I don't watch TV. I just pop into one of these TV show discussion threads and think umm WTF I'd rather read a book or something. I don't see the problem with 1/2 - 1 hours a night, but I read somewhere American average is 5 hours daily. I still watch TV once in a while (to watch It's Sunny in Philadelphia haha) and play a game every now and then though. Not sure why I have to pay cable bill. Any thoughts?
