On a scale of 0 (none) to 10 (I watch it constantly).

Does "listening to and occasionally glancing at while painting" count?

Perhaps, instead of a numeric scale, it might be better to ask in terms of hours per day.
Does background noise while you do chores or paint count?

GreenMountainBoy30 Oct 2018 2:37 a.m. PST

1… really, hardly any. We don't have cable/satellite, and just do the occasional streaming. I'm not sure where I'd find the time to watch more!

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 2:53 a.m. PST

I don't own a TV and receive no signal. Does putting something in the DVD player count?

And Winston's right, of course. Hours per week is a real measure, not 0-10. (Hours per day is clearly a typo. Who would watch hours of television every day?)

And the answer is about three hours of DVDs a week.

Too much

CSherrange30 Oct 2018 3:31 a.m. PST

Baseball season- 5

Non-Baseball season- 1

Personal logo Lluis of Minairons Sponsoring Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 3:38 a.m. PST

1, perhaps 2

Giles the Zog30 Oct 2018 3:53 a.m. PST

0 (Zero). I watch no live TV, and haven't done for 10 years or so. After the death of my wife, I found I was depressed and sat down and wrote what I was doing and what I wanted to do and therefore what was to go. Top of the list to go was TV.

I do watch DVDs often as moving wallpaper whilst ironing/tidying/painting/browsing the internet.

I was born in 1950, so TV has always been part of my life. Now I am more likely to be watching DVDs or movies online, but I still watch at least an hour or two a day.

Gone Fishing30 Oct 2018 4:26 a.m. PST

We stream films for the kids and us, sometimes watch DVDs; last night the girls and I began the classic Dr Who Pyramids of Mars, which was good fun.

We don't have cable, so of "real" television viewing we have about O.

Rich Bliss30 Oct 2018 4:28 a.m. PST

3. Used to be more but then we cut the cord and dumped cable.

Dynaman878930 Oct 2018 4:34 a.m. PST

What does 2 to 3 hours per week qualify as?

Time on internet would be 12+ or so however.

pzivh43 Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 4:53 a.m. PST

I usually have it on when I do hobby stuff for background. Sometimes on History Channel or HGTV, but often DVDs.

One TV on for news, etc. in the house, too.

Oppiedog30 Oct 2018 5:18 a.m. PST

1-2

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 5:21 a.m. PST

If by TV you mean network television. Then 1.
If you mean how much do I watch screen with moving pictures. Then 10.

KSmyth30 Oct 2018 5:28 a.m. PST

5. Baseball or a streaming service. Network television, almost never.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP30 Oct 2018 5:41 a.m. PST

Probably a 2.

Old Wolfman30 Oct 2018 5:42 a.m. PST

Weekday mornings,about an hour, Then a few hours at night when I get home from work. Weekends,that's another story. Average about an 8.5 tops.

Legion 430 Oct 2018 6:00 a.m. PST

@ 8 … But much on the Travel, NATGEO, Jeopardy, History[when not showing Bleeped text like Pickers, Counting Cars, etc.!] SYFY[ but only rarely!], 24 Hour News[not MSNBC !] etc.

21eRegt30 Oct 2018 6:20 a.m. PST

Too damn much, that's for sure. An 8 or 9. Or at least it is on that much.

4.

Football, the odd Food Network or HGTV show, and occasional viewings of The Cowboy Way.

Chris Wimbrow30 Oct 2018 10:28 a.m. PST

Probably lower than 1, but not 0.

Kansas City Chiefs/Royals and University of Tennessee football when they're on our limited satellite service.

And the World Cup. When it's been another four years.

Go Spurs!

leidang30 Oct 2018 12:22 p.m. PST

1 – I follow a single university for sports (Football and Basketball) and other than that watch maybe a couple hours per week if what my wife is watching looks interesting. Usually home improvement shows.

My wife's watching would be a 3. She has a few weekly shows she has to watch and uses it for background noise sometimes.

14Bore30 Oct 2018 1:02 p.m. PST

5, some sporting events ( local NFL and F-1,) and movies

28mm Fanatik30 Oct 2018 1:46 p.m. PST

6. I usually binge watch for hours at a time and don't follow prescribed programming schedules.

Earl of the North30 Oct 2018 3:44 p.m. PST

At the moment it would be high, maybe 7-8 because I just got netflix and i'm not sure how long I'll be keeping it so I'm binge watching series and films I wouldn't be watching otherwise.

myxemail30 Oct 2018 5:13 p.m. PST

0 TV
0 DVDs and movies
1, at best for internet hobby videos (painting, building, rules presentations or tutorials)

Mike

repaint30 Oct 2018 7:27 p.m. PST
