I don't watch scheduled programming at all unless there's a good guest on the Graham Norton show or something but I do download shows I like that air in America like Gotham and Agents of Shield. So, they're 45 minutes each (downloads don't have commercials) and let's assume it's a week that I watch Graham Norton and maybe a few other things. I'd say the average is around 3 hours but that would be the top end of the estimate.

Yeah, about 6 hours of actually watching TV for me, too. About all I watch is the morning news, and The Daily Show and one or two comedies at night.

However, the TV is generally on all day over the weekend, showing this game or that. I don't dedicate time to watching an entire game, but I check on them throughout the day.

I watch embarrassingly way too much television.

My goal is to significantly slash my internet time and cut my television to just one hour a week, when Twin Peaks premieres on May 21st.

Is this including all screen time? Now a days it isn't all about tv that people are vegging out to.



I'm inconsistant with my tv watching, technically there are a ton of shows that come on weekly that I love but actually catching them weekly is almost passe. I might watch a few hours of one show to catch up one week and a few hours catching up on another show another week. Somewhere by the end of the year I've caught up on all the shows I care about since many have such shorten seasons these days.

I am similar. I used to watch a lot more television, and there are certainly shows I'm really interested in, but for some reason I have a hard time not falling behind on episodes and ultimately losing interest.

I do fall victim to binge-watching if it's a show I want to see through. disbelief
Just want the whole story in one go, like a movie. Not spread out over weeks.

If you will, so will I

Tv and radio is totally ruined by ad breaks. I will always record my favs and then i can forward the ads. Don't watch tv much maybe a few hours a week mostly the news but always wish i hadn't.

I mostly just watch local news if I'm where I can catch it. So maybe five hours a week at most of actually paying the tv any attention. I don't currently follow any shows or series.

i justify my bootlegging by maintaining a valid library card...

...that said, i rarely watch scheduled programming unless it's live sports (which is rare) or m*a*s*h re-runs (watching m*a*s*h with commercials has a profoundly calming effect on my disposition). i do watch a lot of movies, though...so, maybe like 12-15 hours a week.

Well it's either pirate them or wait 6 months or more until they're aired over here. Not really a tough decision is it? But if I ever meet Clark Gregg, the star of Agents of Shield, I'll be sure to compensate him for the loss of revenue that I have caused him.

I've also pirated a lot of music, some which I featured on, do you think I should compensate those artists, including myself?

Ummm...I would say that you pirating them would Force the TV bosses over there into airing them sooner in YOUR country,... but that's really sidestepping the argument.

Hope you pay/have paid for some stuff (like me! wink ).

Well I own about 7000 dvds so that makes up for the few shows that I download. And more often than not, I'll buy the shows I pirate on DVD when they're released. But considering there are only a small number of TV shows that I actually watch, I'd say I don't make much difference. Gotham, Game of Thrones and Agents of Shield are literally the only three TV shows I watch. Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist are all on Netflix so I don't need to pirate those.

Depends on whether or not "my" series are on at present. I don't think I regularly watch or DVR anything on the four main broadcast networks outside of Survivor. The rest of the things I watch are on cable channels and have fairly short seasons. I'd have to really think about it, but I'd guess between 6 and 10, depending on what time of the year it is. I do binge watch on occasion, though. Just burned through three seasons of the Great British Baking Show on Netflix in a couple weeks.

Same. I rarely watch anything "live" anymore. Even basketball games. Record them, start watchin an hour late, fast forward commercials and half time and you end up finishing just about live every time.
