I grab the remote and change the channel or turn off the tv while at the same time thinking the most terrible thoughts.

without which I never watch TV- it’s too boring, unless I’m also reading something.

It is hard to watch any news, they put clips of him on constantly, so boring and annoying, my family are the true news addicts, otherwise I would not watch very much news. I read it online more.

My wife and I don't suffer any cable, satellite, or broadcast television.

Our television plays DVDs and Netflix. That's pretty much all it does.

Often mouth some unintelligible babbling noises to confirm that I understand exactly the true meaning of what he is babbling.

I've rarely watch him anyway.

I also will change the radio station when he's on live, or being reported on replayed - I'll listen a little on rare occasions. I don't need the agravation!

Except that I don't watch TV (Analog to Digital conversion stole thar from me), so it's the radio or my computer.
