I do not do TV. I haven't watched TV in my home since June 11, 2009. That is when the government said I had to buy cable or satellite to watch free TV.
While I miss watching some events or shows I am still alive. so it really hasn't hurt me. I can watch many taped shows I like on HULU and while it is after the fact and can watch over and over. Yeah Nascar is better live, as is the super Bowl but cooking show are the same on air date or months later.
