I watch tv when I think I've had enough of my computer. Which is rare lol
I mostly watch the news or animal planet. Not much more. I like to view my series online or I download them. That goes for movies too, when I don't watch them in the cinema or buy them.
I still have cable, because it's more for visitors. My bro likes to chillax and sit on the couch and watch tele after work. More to empty his mind than to really follow a series or something.

Hulu doesn't work for people outside of the US. I think I tried it once and it gave me a pop up and block :/

Exactly, my Lord Zukyun! I very much appreciated your post, as your Majesties' thoughts are precisely my viewpoint as well.

I do have a television set, but it is used only for when I feel up to watching a rented movie, or perhaps play a game for a short while (neither happens very often though). And while I have no children, I have seen children's programming while visiting others. I must say, that I was rather taken aback at what these parents considered appropriate viewing material.

For me personally, television is an udder waste of my precious time. I enjoy life, and I would much rather spend it pursuing interests and spending time with others. Just my opinion, of course.

I do watch a little television now. I used to only watch for the news occasionally, and sometimes America's Funniest Home Videos and America's Most Wanted, but now that there is that new show Raising Hope, I can't help but watch it. It is so cute! I watch every episode. I used to watch No Ordinary Family, but I don't like it all that much. I didn't really like Running Wilde either.

Every now and then I tune in for The Doctors, but not Dr. Oz. Dr. Oz seems to be a bit of a crackpot.

We haven't actually owned a TV for nearly sixteen years and don't have any intention of ever buying one.

We do, however, have a nice collection of DVDs that we originally started watching on a computer. the DVD drives in those days would die at a rate of about one every six months so we eventually bought a DVD player, a converter box, and a computer monitor for our watching. This way we can guarantee that what is shown in our home is the kind of thing we feel comfortable letting into our home.

For example, we wouldn't let our neighbor come into our house and start f-bombing us. We don't allow that into our home through media either. We wouldn't allow naked people to frolic in our living room so we're certainly not going to watch a program that contains it.

A good portion of the movies in our collection are old, like the Danny Kaye classics and I have some Jerry Lewis. I love movies like "Arsenic and Old Lace" "Charade". We have Star Wars and LoTR, Star Trek, and some other sci-fi titles. They're fun to watch and we don't feel like we're risking our values to view them. We also have a wide variety of "kids'" movies that are just fun for the whole family to watch, plus quite a few Hallmark titles including "The Tenth Kingdom". We love quirky stuff and that one is definitely quirky.

We will also buy certain TV shows on DVD. Over the years we collected all of SG-1 (ties with Star Trek DS9 as my all-time favorite TV show), then this last spring we got started watching "Lost" on Hulu and before long everyone was so engrossed that when tax return time rolled around we splurged on the whole series. As much as we enjoyed that show with all its brain-twisting drama, by the time it ended we were glad it was done! Laughing I also occasionally pick up an earlier season of one of the CSI shows. I'm really the only one in our house who watches those most of the time so I get them when I find them really cheap, generally used.

I do have a couple of shows that I watch regularly on Hulu and there are a few reality shows I enjoy (oh, I know, the horrors! I actually ENJOY a couple of those HORRIBLE things!). I also watch the CSI shows on CBS's website.

Mainly I watch a show I enjoy while I'm winding down for the day. I sleep better if I just relax for an hour or so reading or watching something. When I have books I prefer to read but I can't always get books. On Hulu I watch "Bones", "Castle", and Gordon Ramsay's cooking shows because for some reason I get a huge kick out of that guy. We also watch "America's Got Talent" when it's running and usually keep up with "Britain's Got Talent" and sometimes the Australian version on YouTube. I think the reality shows I watch are like sports for me. I really dislike sports like football, baseball, basketball, etc. but find a lot of entertainment in cooking and talent competitions.

Once in a while on Hulu I find a treasure of a movie, like when they were showing "Return to Me". I don't enjoy just any romance story and I'm not one for "chick flicks" but I really liked that movie. I also enjoy watching some of the really old stuff they show.

Do I watch television? Nope, unless its online or I'm at Dad's or someone else's home. The television antennae's been broken (oops) for about two years now. But that's okay, most of it was junk anyway.

I watch about seven or eight shows and I record all those to my DVR. Other than that I'm watching shows online or buying the shows I do like on DVD to watch on my own time.

I haven't actually sat down with the intent to watch whatever happens to be on TV in a very long time. Let's see, if I were to watch TV right now I think I would go straight to the History Channel. That is, if they're not showing one of those reality shows that aren't really about history... I also like to watch the ghost shows sometimes ^^ those kind of things don't freak me out, I think they're kind of neat!
Does anyone else really miss Tom on Toonami? That used to be one of my favorite things to watch, since I'm a major otaku. Gosh, I feel so old since DBZ hasn't been on in ages!!
Any other anime fans? Let's see, let's see... I've watched a lot of anime on TV;
DragonBall Z
Cowboy BeBop
Teen Titans (sort of an anime)
YuYu Hakusho
Code Lyoko
Outlaw Star
Tenchi Muyo
Samurai Champloo
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Burst Angel
Death Note
Fullmetal Alchemist
Full Metal Panic!
Gundam Wing
Ghost in the Shell
And many more... I've also watched a LOT of anime on the internet and anime that I downloaded, some definite recommendations would be Chrono Crusade, ***** (Black Butler), Kiddy Grade, and Strawberry Panic!. Those were some of my all-time favorites ^^.
I was very sad when Cartoon Network went from showing things that are actually cool to "Stupid pointless show of the week". Granted, they still have the Star Wars: The Clone Wars on and that gets some points for being cool.

I do not watch t.v.
I haven't had cable in almost two years.
I don't want to spend money on it because I use to only turn it on when I couldn't find anything else to do.
I rent movies from a few places, but not T.V.

No, I haven't had time for the past few years. I do watch shows now though. About five. But I watch them on Sidereel and Hulu when I get a chance. Which can be nice except a lot of times I get spoilers since I watch everything weeks after it's released. If I do watch cable it'll be House on one of those marathons or reruns of Mythbusters. Come to think of it... I probably don't need to be paying for cable at all... huh.

I watch some tv not alot just a few shows here and there but I am not what you would call a tv person at all. I live in the boonies and have crappy internet that we just got from one local provider that they try to slap the words of high speed on there with and charge you out the butt for but everyone laughs at you for getting that package because its not even high speed. So I have been to Hulu once when I missed an episode of one of my favorite shows called, "Supernatural". It took forever to download and would not work right for me so I never tired it again. I just started paying tivo the .99 to download them again for me which again did take forever but I did not have to watch it as it downloaded and worry about it freezing and starting back. Maybe if I lived in a better location with better internet I would use it more. Which I would love to move in the future so I will check it out again when I do.

Chiller Channel X3

True Blood (HBO)

Supernatural (CW)

Nip/Tuck (FX)

Heroes (NBC)

Prison Break (Fox)

Lost (ABC)

Survivor (CBS)

Pushing Daisies (ABC)

Knight Rider (NBC)

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS)

Of course I watch TV. Well, I normally do. I haven't watched a lot the past year and a half because I'm with my great aunt and she doesn't have cable. So there's really nothing on, the pictures bad, and some stations don't even come in, thanks to the government and their wonderful "switch to digital" plan. I think it's ridiculous how people are saying they only watch TV online, or are dropping cable because they have Netflix. The majority of the shows I watch are not available online, and Netflix doesn't have the shows as they air, so it's stupid to rely on the internet as your primary source of television. As for the people who say they don't watch TV at all, whether the actual TV or shows online, I think a lot of them are liars. People say that all the time, most people online do. But if you look at the ratings obviously people are watching. I also think they come off really arrogant, like they think by saying they don't watch much, or that they don't own a TV, that they're somehow better than the unwashed masses who just sit around watching reality TV all day or something.
