70 How much TV do you watch?
Listen to six people talk about their TV watching habits.
I don't like watching TV that much. I would just spend like one or two hours a week, cause I think it's just a waste of time in just sitting and staring at one box.
At home, in India I watch TV a lot. I just sit all the time in front of the TV and I keep watching it. I like all these Indian serials and stuff, so I watch TV a lot.

Well, when I'm in my room, I always keep my TV on all the time, although I don't really watch it all the time. It's just that, you know, it's good to have some noise in your room.
TV! How often do I watch TV? I don't. I don't even own a TV. I think TV is pretty much a waste of time. It's an addiction that people can't quit, so I don't TV. I don't even own a TV, but the ironic thing is that is that one of my jobs is making television documentaries.
How much TV do I watch? I do watch a lot of TV. I like to watch it for the news to see what's happening around the world and in my own town. I also like to watch DVDs on our TV as it's a large TV so it is very good to watch DVDs. And I also like some of my favorite crime scene investigation programs. They are very good to watch as well.
When I'm back in Oman, I watch TV a lot, more than currently. I watch a lot of Arabic soap operas and a lot of sitcoms as well, and that's what keeps me locked onto the TV all the time.
