Not the only one - we don't have one either. Maybe it's a cultural thing, cos I don't know anyone who has.

Although, I must admit that I often leave the TV in the lounge on while I'm in the kitchen, and pop through if it sounds interesting

Guess Buck and I didn't need one because we entertained each other when we prepared meals together. Our "much needed" kitchen electronic is the radio. Sometimes when a favorite song would come on, we'd drop our prep tools/knives and dance.
I've never had one in the kitchen either, Katie, but I'm starting to feel deprived now! Roadfix's setup is looking pretty fabulous to me. And I already have a HAVA (just like a Slingbox Pro) so I could do it. (OK, not one that size yet - hubby just got laid off.) Do ya'll think it would make my kids want to help clean up in the kitchen more if they could watch TV? My mind is racing at the possibilities. Why have I never thought of this before????

No TV in my kitchen, or in the bedroom, for that matter. I watch about an hour a day, usually when I am folding laundry, riding the exercise bike or doing some other sit down chore.

NPR all the way for me.

I'd love to have one in the kitchen.
I usually have the food network on in the living room, so when I hear something that sounds good, I run in and watch.
My brother just installed one in his bathroom in front of the commode

no question, our smallest tv with the least channels is the most watched kitchen counter flat screen. Our least watched with the best sound and bigest picture is the HD flatscreen in the living room. Go figure!

my grown son is certainly a child of the media. he has three tvs and a stereo player out by his pool. tv are usually each on a different sporting event, with no sound. the only sound is the music from c.d.

he has a flat screen in living room and a tv in his office. a little overkill i think.
