    personally i HATE TV but i do have two because my husband wants them ugh. im usually reading; chasing after the kids; or online lol. i want to be more organized and do more activities with them and for myself that ive always wanted to do but never had the time.

    If you hate TV and don't have one; don't watch it; or only watch the news what do you do otherwise? Im curious:thinking:

    What things do you do with your children? any unique home-made games/activities to share? family activities rituals etc. I brought the game chess but i have to learn it before i teach the children. Chess is supposed to be a good brain exercise, its complex. im procrastinating in reading the rules. i need to get on that :)

    I can't say that I hate TV, but I do not let it consume me. Other than news, documentaries, history channel, TRU TV, and news magazine shows that I catch programs on when I can I only keep track of a couple of shows and follow my sports teams. Which is funny because I have a bunch of channels I am paying for that are of absolutely no worth to me but have to deal with to have the channels I have interest in. If there was a true cable "ala carte" option I would probably have 20 channels max. Truth be known is that a lot of the time the TV may be on and I am not paying attention to it.

    The honorable Elijah Muhammad once said: "soon, even the righteous will allow the devil into their living rooms". A year or two later tv was invented.

    So, no i don't 'hate' tv, but like the with the devil, i know exactly what to expect from it if i turn it on.

    I don't hate it; but it is irritating to me at times.

    Nothing intellectually stimulating on that much....I prefer history and documentaries.

    "Reality shows" make me wanna scream.

    For comedy, I prefer the older shows...more family stuff.

    I hate all of it..the only think I can really watch now is sports and even the time I have spent doing that has dropped a lot over the years......I was flipping through some channels earlier and saw 5 minutes of TMZ and Access Hollywood...there was so much racism spewed within those 5 minutes that I just had to turn it off.......all the television programs are lame now anyway...reality tv = boring...how many more singing contest shows do we need???.....I don't want to keep up with the **** kardashians and I don't give a **** about rich housewives...I'd rather stare at a wall............

    Man I noticed a couple of years ago that I only watched 4 channels with my cable...that's when I agreed to never get that crap again in my life......if I wanna watch a game, I can just stream in from online............cable companies rob people
