Is the Internet Your Primary Entertainment Source?

In days of yore my friends and I would gather to watch Friends live on TV, but my how our habits have changed! Earlier this week I found myself live blogging on Twitter through The Bachelorette finale. Halfway through the two hour extravaganza of cheese and romance I realized I was enjoying playing on Twitter and my friends' comebacks and witty comments far more than the actual program. I wasn't just watching guilty pleasure TV, I was being entertained by my gal pals online.

While I keep up with my favorite shows on my DVR, and sneak in paperbacks whenever I can, I live online — from YouTube, iTunes, Hulu, Facebook to random hilarious videos. It's my chief source of entertainment and giggles. Do you find yourself using your computer as your main distraction outlet, or do you use your TV or traditional media more?

i do think that i spend a majority of my 'aimless' time online - whether it's blogs or celebrity sites, or playing games (i.e. puzzle games) that's typically where you'll find me - online.

Lol - it's sad how much time I spend online... and how much I rely on internet. I like being able to not just hear and see news, but research what's being told to me and get feedback from others.

Yep, count me in as someone who spends a LOT of time online. Mainly reading my massive amounts of feeds, trying in vain to keep up with them! :D

Anytime I want to watch something on t.v. I just say "I'll find it online" and go about my business.

I find myself spending more and more time online. I LOVE hulu to watch 30 rock and family guy. I still love tv but I wish it was as simple as watching shows online.
