I think the more I've gotten into the practice the less interested I've become spending my time watching television. I think there's a correlation.

But it just can't compete with the Internet anymore. Most of what's on TV is really low-grade stuff, and being able to search for quality videos on places like youtube is a much better way to get one's entertainment fix, if that is what one needs. So I would say I'm down to just a few hours a week now, and not by any act of willpower, just because it's mostly so very dull and boring.

TV is good for you.
Seriously, TV is just a medium and is only as good or as bad is what you choose to consume, uncritically.
