    Default Is TV Almost Worthless?

    Yes? No?

    It's very rare that I find something on TV that's worth watching. I usually end up watching local TV or weird ass, alternative channels up in the 9000s.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    There's still great NEW stuff out there - The Office, Scrubs, House, .... i still love the rediculousness of Adult Swim evne though they play that King ofthe Hill crap!


    The thing is TV has to compete with so many different alternates to entertainment that it's really taxed how much those companies can allocate towards new/good shows...... the most popular TV shows out there are reruns of old syndications, afterall. The best way for a network to nap a large population of viewers is to just play another rerun of Fresh Prince or Seinfeld....

    Also, if you think TV is just for entertainment, try turning on the History channel or PBS sometimes. They don't always play "gold standard" kind of intellectual material, but sometimes.....

    You have too many channels, that's all. At some point all those options = boredom with all options.

    Pretty much so. Most of what I still watch are EWTN(Catholic TV) along with history and book discussion programs on C-SPAN.

    Probably but anything that brings me football each and every week through rain, hail or shine has my love and loyalty, everything else on there I could live without, football is pretty much the only thing I turn it on for these days.

    My tv only gets used to watch an hour or two of Fox most days. ... That's all. Pretty damn useless.

    For me, it's pretty useful because I can keep abreast of the latest news in my country. The news stations have websites but I like to hear the news on TV..they're much shorter and direct whereas in the websites they're more elaborate.

    Well, I do find the TV boring sometimes, especially if I don't like the shows. Too much soap dramas..hate them.
