I'd say it's doing more harm than good.

My family decided it would be best for everyone if we shut off the cable. Now we just watch tv on the internet.

TV is only harmful to excess. It's not just TV that's making people paranoid. Mediums as old as newspapers, magazines and advertisements outside of television are still inflicting needless fear and making us paranoid.

I think it depends on how much time you spend watching it and how much as you use it as your basis for reality.

it's a crutch used by millions of people who don't want to own up to their own shortcomings and laziness.

I don't dislike TV, I just ****ing abhor commercials. There are some good shows out there, but I always ALWAYS mute the TV during the commercials.

Whether or not TV is evil is up to debate. There are some intelligent, entertaining shows out there, but there's a lot of crap out there too, but that can be applied to music and literature as well. It's just a matter of sifting through the crap and finding the good things. However I do agree with what Huey Freeman said on The Boondocks right before grandad delivered the finishing blow to Stinkmeaner, "You know, right now we could all be reading a book."

I agree, Especially with the advent of reality tv. I see too many people living their lives vicariously and quite passively through the lives, fictitious or not, of strangers on Television. The worst are people who have their heads up the a$$es of celebrities personal lives.
