    Gave Up When I Moved Out From My Parents House At 18.

    I have not watched more than a dozen adds on TV since, still seen everything worth seeing thanks to the miracle of internet. Can't wait for Australia to get high speed internet too.

    A Poor Substitute For a Dream

    I gave up on television about 3 years ago. I got into intensely after a bad breakup. TV seemed to be the only thing left permanent in the world. I felt people were not reliable and that only TV was. My addiction was to pro wrestling specifically the WWF and later the WWE as it...

    Waste Of Money. Waste Of Electric

    Almost Given Up On Tv

    Almost given up on tv because there's almost nothing good on it.  I do watch wheel of fortune, cash cab, and instant cash,  price is right  and lets make a deal.   Judge Judy. That's about it there's nothing else on that I like no matter what channel.

    Have Never Owned One

    Given Up On Tv

    I've stopped watching purely because my head starts to hurt. Although there are educational programs I tend to sleep on it, the tv's watching me. I can't stand serious shows because I'm really at a low point in my life at the moment. I'll watch teen titans or random animes with...
