    1. What causes you to do it?
    2. How often do you watch tv (hours)?

    I'm doing a survey for my class in TV and Media Studies, so if there's any way you could indicate your age I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    1. Commercials come on and I want to see what else is going on.
    2. A day? Well, I turn it on for background sound when I visit the Internet, clean or multi-task with other things. If I'm actually watching it I would say 2-3 hours a day on average.

    Asking strangers online might not get you the most accurate statistics.. Just saying. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for that information Hybrix. Allow me to share part of my statistics with you so far:

    i) I cross-posted this survey to several different forums, one of which was even a porn forum that receives a large number of hits per day.

    ii) Of all the forums that received the survey (including the porn forum), you were the only person of approximately 30 people that failed to provide reasonable answers to the two questions listed.

    Making the fairly logical assumption that no one really benefits from lying about something as trivial as watching TV, I can then deduce that only 1 in 30 people are not willing to provide a reasonable answer - this statistic I can live with.

    So, thanks once again.

    Haha no worries. I actually don't watch much TV myself so I figured I'd have some fun with the answers. :)

    There were some things man was not meant to know.... jk it just says server not found. I'm almost dissapointed.

    1. What causes you to do it?
    It fills the time that I'm not beating my children quite nicely.

    2. How often do you watch tv (hours)?
    in a day? week? month? year? - this is important for surveys. I'm going to assume day in which case 20 minutes... I have some god awful children.
