How Many TV Channels Do You Watch?

Behold the wonders of cable: According to a new survey from the Nielsen Research Company, the average U.S. household gets a whopping 104 TV channels. But that doesn't mean people are watching them. The survey found that the average home actually tunes into just about 15 of those channels each week.

I tried jotting down a list of channels I watch regularly and couldn't even get to 20! What about you? How many of your channels do you actually watch?

I picked 10-25 channels, but I think it's more like 12-15, which isn't even close to the upper limit there.

I get about 50, and I guess theres been something on all of them at one time or another that I've watched. Except the French channel, or the Parliament Channel. lol ------------------------------------------------------ "If men could only know each other, they would neither idolize nor hate" Elbert Hubbard

No cable for me. I just watch ABC and NBC and sometimes CBS and PBS.

I have no cable. I watch Fox and NBC...sometimes filled in with PBS...once in a great while, I'm too lazy to change the channel so I watch ABC or CBS. :)
