Mindnumbing.....

I've never been much of a TV watcher as it is, but since going to remote work I tend to turn it on just to have noise in the back ground. I must say, daytime TV is crap after the local news weather goes off!

I completely agree. In the last month I have only watched TV for about an hour.

[@78387,Stereoguy] Not counting the football games, I probably watch about that much as well.
Stereoguy · 56-60, M
[@919487,skmokisses] Happy Monday 🙂

[@78387,Stereoguy] You too dear 🤗

Sadly the quality of television programs has steadily gone down.
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@516380,SageWanderer] Indeed it has!
Lilnonames · F
[@516380,SageWanderer] and the cable price has gone up
JustEd · 36-40, M
Yeah. Seems to have a lot of shows with people that just like to hear themselves talk.
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@323960,JustEd] LOL.....and hear themselves talk about nothing!
JustEd · 36-40, M
[@919487,skmokisses] 😂. It’s like the voices in my head.
Lilnonames · F

skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@1749,Lilnonames] Ugh, yeah it's awful!

skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@581975,Tracos] Yay....ty!
Tracos · 51-55, M
[@919487,skmokisses] have tried them?
Rocklike47 · 46-50, M
after a while everything becomes boring , TV , internet , social media .... unless you have some real good friends who can keep you feel good about yourself
Yeah...its mostly paid advertisements so a whole load of bs.
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@372543,Vivaci] So much BS 🙄
Yeah...it’s as though they’re forcing the poor ones who can’t afford cable to watch their wishy washy stuff. [@919487,skmokisses]
I agree and do same thing 🤣. Fireplace channel is nice 😊.
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@1210041,DelightfulDelectableDelicious] LOL....yeah that's always a good alternative.
Or the aquarium channel , those little fish are hypnotizing 😵‍💫. Lol [@919487,skmokisses]

BBC America plays a lot of Star Trek the Next Generation midday. I watch it during lunch.
Degbeme · 61-69, M
The wife watches soaps. 🙄

Watch porn for background noise. 😬
RoxClymer · 36-40, M
I stream mostly
so I can watch what I want and sklp all the crap
SaturdayhasTURDinit · 41-45, M
There are options...

You don't need to watch the crap.
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@1216170,SaturdayhasTURDinit] Oh I don't.....I just can't. I find a station with music and just have that playing in the back ground.
I do the same thing and only watch news channels... it drives me crazy...
Fluffybull · F
We don't have a TV 😊👏
skmokisses · 46-50, F
[@602378,Fluffybull] I wish we didn't!
MrGoodbar · 46-50, M
that's an understatement
It's a bad habit...
TryingSW45 · 46-50, M
It's odd when--besides PBS' NON-fund-raising crap--the best thing on TV is reruns of shows you watched as a kid...
1490wayb · 56-60, M
i agree, says something about american school education
Tracos · 51-55, M
[@1144409,1490wayb] that kids are in school and dont watch tv after the local weather news?
1490wayb · 56-60, M
[@581975,Tracos] the creators and writers cannot come up with something as good as the shows in 50-70's...in my opinion is a sign of our educational decline
