I work in TV. My wife is a newshound. In TV as a job, you have to watch the monitor like a hawk. If you work in the biz, when you get home you have to concentrate not to watch if you are in the room. Plus, by the time I get home from mixing music my ears and mind are exhausted from "steering my hearing" to listen to fine details in the background, especially if I am mixing music. Breaking dialog (my wife) out of the background (the TV) is mental work. If there is a TV on in the room at home I simply don't get away from work all day and night.

I was in an upscale restaurant on Sunday and they had a TV in the bar (featuring the Packer's demise) that could be heard in the restaurant.

Let's just say I despise TVs in restaurants and leave it at that.
