I'm in that exact boat. I don't want a TV in the bedroom.... but I do want to stay married so.... happy wife, happy life!
We have two TV's: one in the family room and one in the bedroom.
Of course the concept of "a TV" is a little out dated as the kids watch "TV" on their phone or tablet as (probably more) often than any TV we have.
I'll go out on a limb and say the correct number of tvs is > 0 but < number of rooms in the house.

o Each of the 5 bedrooms
o The kitchen
o The laundry room
o One in each of the two full bathrooms
So yeah, we were definitely a TV family. And when you add multiple laptops plus multiple iPads (even for my kids), we have a ton of screens available.

Watching movies and reasonable TV shows on a laptop?? Nah...

fr8mech wrote:I don't know. I'd argue that the correct number of TV's depends on how many people are watching, and in how many places those people are likely to watch TV.

I have 5 televisions. One in the living room (main floor), one in the bar area in my basement, one in the family room of the basement (this is where we watch movies), one in my bedroom (which I would just assume be tossed for the previous noted reasons) and one outside under my pool cabana/bar.
Each one has it's purpose and does in fact get used. The one receiving the least use being the one in the bedroom.
