    I don't watch a huge amount, maybe an hour or 2 max, and usually whilst I am doing something else, like writing here or going on a 4 hours Wikipedia ramble ! (Tabbed browsing for the win).

    0 hours, it's a waste of life for me just sitting in front of tv.
    Recently I've written about it.

    Probably about two a day, give or take depending on the day. But, I usually fold laundry or try to get some cleaning done while I am watching it.

    Depends on what's on TV, to be fair. Could be between 2-5 hours, if not more.

    If I could I would watch 24 hours of television everyday. In reality, I watch about 7-10 hours per day. I work in a place where a television is available (and on) and I watch at home. Often times, "watching" television is merely having it on and listening while I do something else i.e. type a hub, or answer hub questions. And I know you didn't ask but my favorites shows are LAw & Order Criminal Intent and Modern Family.

    I never watch television. I prefer read the newspapers or follow news by internet. The programs in television generally do not interesting me.

    probably only an hour a day. and maybe a movie on the weekend . Watching TV is a big waste of time and kills productivity. There is nothing on much anymore that holds my attention anyway.

    It all depends on which day it is, I tend to watch more tv at the weekends when I don't have to work. I ahve been known to watch six hours on a Sunday!

    Generally not more than 2 hours.  We got rid of our cable over a year ago.  When we do watch TV, we have to decide to pull up a show on Hulu or Netflix or watch something on DVD.  We don't ever channel surf, which cuts way down on mindless watching.
