Did (or Does) Your Whole Family Watch TV Together?

Recently, a bunch of TV executives tackled the question of whether TV needs to have a "family hour" — and, for the most part, decided that such a thing is a relic of the past. Some said developing shows like The Cosby Show is just unrealistic in this era, especially because parents and kids might watch TV in radically different ways.

That got me thinking about shows I used to watch with my family when I was younger. Though watchdog groups like to protest it, The Simpsons was generally fair game for everyone in my house, and I also remember curling up on the couch to watch Family Double Dare.

What about you? As a kid, did you watch any shows with your parents and/or siblings? And, if you're a parent now, does your whole family watch anything together?
