Do you believe the general public spends less time watching television time due to time spent online? I don’t even know if the general public is spending less time watching television. My hunch is that people are watching more of it because of all the bullshit going on in the world. I’d like to think people are spending more time reading news online, downloading music and downloading porn than listening to our moron of a president give half-assed speeches.

Do you feel that surfing or creating for the Internet has taken from your television viewing time? Is that a good or bad thing? Surfing and creating for the Internet has taken away from a lot of things, if you want to put it that way. What I create and read on the net is worth every bit of my time. Sure, I’m a junkie for all of it and maybe I shouldn’t spend as much time on AIM as I do, but for the most part it’s a good thing. Television is for when I feel like giving my brain a rest (most of the time).

Have many hours of television do you watch per week? Favorite show? I’d say I watch between 5 – 10 hours per week. Having TiVo has totally cut down on my viewing, which is also great. It’s the best invention since sliced bread. I don’t have one favorite show. The shows I watch regularly are (in no particular order) The Sopranos, Alias, Smallville, Inside The Actor’s Studio, Seinfeld Sex And The City, The Mind Of The Married Man and Charlie Rose.
