    No, only TV in the house is in the finished basement.

    No to having one in the Living Room.

    Den, Kitchen, Bedrooms, Bathroom is enough.

    Nope. I consider the living room and bedrooms (guest bedroom excepted) to be anti-tv zones.

    Kronik, I was trying to decide whether your answer technically should be "yes" or "no", but I gave up. It's like a f***king zen koan.

    Hah. So was I. I was thinking.. no because I don't have one. I mean, what IS a living room, really? Is it a room you live in? I live in all of my rooms. That would suggest that a TV in the bathroom is unacceptable and that my friend, is heresy.

    I live in a normal NYC apartment. It's either no tv or tv in the living room/dining room. For what it's worth, we're getting an LCD with built in DVD so there will be no "entertainment center" and the focus will be elsewhere.

    Yes, there is one TV in the house and it's in the living room.

    Same idea, but for the DC-area.

    I wish I lived in all of my rooms. Sometimes I can't figure out why we have them. I use about 3 rooms on a normal basis.

    I love having a TV in the bathroom so I can catch the news, weather, etc., while getting ready in the morning. God bless the guy who invented small flat screen TVs.

    No - our TV and computer are in the 2nd bedroom/guest room. We don't have guests that often so it has de facto transformed into our TV room
