Do it. The only think you'll regret is that you hadn't done it earlier.

I haven't watched TV for seven years now, and I know I'll never, ever go back to it. TV is 99.99% garbage, like the crap you posted above. If I want to watch a movie, I rent a DVD (100 yards from my house). When I want news - all the time, basically - there is this great invention called the internet, and another one called Adblock.

Believe me, you will feel immensely better without the continuous onslaught of stupidity and pointlessness that your TV subjects you to daily.

So back on topic, I can't really contribute, because I haven't seen any TV ad in years.  Cool

For those unable to muster the self control to stay away from the stupidity and pointlessness, staying away from TV is good option.

For the rest of us, there is actually some decent stuff on television.

Pick up a refurb Tivo from their website for $49... when you get it, begin playing back a show, then hit Select + Play + Select + 30 + Select....you've now enabled 30 commercial skip! PM me for details if you decide to go that route, it is WELL WORTH IT!

No it doesn't, it seems to be happy with its new owner.  Smile

What I hate about TV:

-Sports: I couldn't care less. In fact, I don't give a shit. Sports don't exist for me, period.
-Advertising: Self-explanatory.
-Weather forecasts: in Belgium, the weather only varies between mildly pleasant and mildly unpleasant. I don't give a damn about the details.
-Advertising: Apply directly to your colon. Apply directly to your colon. Apply directly to your colon.
-News: "We're interrupting our usual programming for this breaking news: Bimbo Celeb is a slut. We'll be back with more on her sluttiness after this important message from our sponsors".
-Music: Yo mothafucka, boom boom scratch scratch, spread your legs you ho, yo!
-Did I mention advertising?

Add to this the universally idiotic game shows, advertising, Big Brothers, singing contests, advertising, cartoons, religious crap, beauty (dumb blonde) pageants, advertising, endless and pointless soap operas, movies interrupted every 3 minutes by advertising, cheesy sitcoms, and advertising, and there you have 99.99% of television.

True, there's also Leno, O'Brien, Ferguson, Family Guy, and others. But to watch those live, I'd have to stay up in the middle of the night. And watch advertising.

The internet and broadband take care of that and do a terrific job of separating the grain from the chaff.  Smile

For fiction, "Heroes" and "LOST" are two excellent shows that I enjoy, but I'm more of a documentary watcher. There are plenty of very good documentaries on Discovery, History, Biography channels etc. If you're a sports fan, then there's good live coverage of most popular sports also; I watch Premier League on Setanta Channel and Fox Soccer Channel. And as far as advertisements go...that's the beauty of TiVo.

Public Proadcasting as well. Advertising drives me nuts too, but the sports that I watch the commercials are at max 75 seconds. Tennis and Basketball, well Soccer is great too, only a couple of commercials during Halftime.
