We quit for about 6 years... It was great and I didn't think I'd ever go back. However, we just recently returned for "curious george", "seasame
street", and some "nick jr." We have a toddler now, and a tube available to us. Some of the more educational cartoons seem worth it; he's
engaged and entertained, while being educated with abc's, 123's, colors, and shapes for about 1 hour, 5 days a week. Its hard to knock a toddler
singing/doing "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" on his own, in the other room, while you do dishes. The wife and I also now occasionally catch a
"survival" type show; I'm always up for a new way to start a fire; but that's less than an hour a week.
I still leave the room if someone is watching pretty much anything else. I have a low drama tolerance; it has to be educational.
