I thought about this after seeing the following in a post by Rabbi Gil Student:
My dilemma in writing this post was that some (most) readers will simply ignore this and continue watching TV. My hope, though, is that in the spirit of the upcoming Yom Kippur season readers will actively reduce their television watching. I don't expect anyone to change years-old habits from one quick blog post. But try cutting down. Think about it. It's easy, fairly painless, and can only yield positive results.Kol HaKavod to Gil for writing this! My advice, however, is to throw the television away, period. You'll be happy that you did so.
