The boys get up at 6:30 and I let them watch a movie. By the time I am up at 8, it is mostly over. That is it. But we don't have tv anymore. It was a lot more when we had cable.

It depends on the day on rainy days it is a lot more, I usually turn it on while I am making dinner so that I can make it in peace. So around 1 hour a day.

While I'm at work, I don't know how much tv they get but I'm going to guess it's on the majority of the morning starting at about 7:30. they have breakfast w/Daddy and then he has to get ready for work so they have it on in their toy room while he takes a shower and whatever else.
then, I let them watch a movie sometime in the afternoon if I have a lot of housework to get done and need the little ones out of my way.
At night, I usually let the oldest watch a little Disney channel while I put the younger ones down for bed. It's kinda their "wind down" time.
so...I think they actually watch a LOT of tv a few days out of the week.

Some days it's more than others. I let them watch it for a couple hours in the morning....while I'm still resting...but that wont be going on anymore since school will start soon....

Altogether...every day...including movie time and everything...they probably get around 3 hours. give or take.

We only have pbs kids as "tv" though and only dvd's after that.....they have a few shows the love to see....but only my oldest is really into "watching" them...the others come and go while they are on....

Anyway...they'll be watching less shows and just movies pretty soon...as they'll be doing school during their "shows" time. LOL....so they'll get to watch a movie after school is done and then one of an evening while I cook dinner probably....

OH and this is only our HOT STINKIN MUGGY SUMMER plan...if it's nice out they are OUTSIDE

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
