This will shock you all, but we don't even HAVE a TV! So, obviously I spend more time online. If we'd have one, I probably would think I couldn't do without it, but since we don't, I don't miss it.

You know, I have several friends who don't own TVs either. They say they can watch the few programs they enjoy on the net anyway and can watch DVDs on their computer. It makes sense to me. Kinda like getting rid of your landline when you get a cell phone. Do you have a TV tuner in your computer? The ones I've seen leave something to be desired as far as reception (unless you have cable hooked up to it), but maybe they are improved now.

I suppose I spend more time online.
We have a tv but only use it for watching movies. We don't have cable or get any channels. I wish that we got pbs.
I spend the most time in the kitchen though. Cooking, dishes and cleaning. Majority of the mess in the house is made in the kitchen but not because I'm a messy cook.

I'm with you, KS. I don't have a TV either. We keep debating on getting one, but when it comes down to it there are just so many other things we'd rather spend our money on. (And I can watch Lost online anyway, and skip most commercials).

And since my computer is in my kitchen, I guess I spend most of my time there too--just not cooking.

since I spend over 12 hours a day in the Lab, and it`s the only place that`s online, then yes, Technically I do.
esp when coupled with the fact that I only watch TV for an hour or 2 before I go to bed :)

Since I'm either working online, or working in the kitchen, I rarely watch tv. I do have a few favs, (ghost hunters, Good eats, Ultimate recipe showdown) by mostly, the tube is just background noise...
