Television is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and yet remain lonesome -- T. S. Eliot

I abhor the fact that waiting rooms at dentist and doctor offices are increasingly filled with loud televisions droning on constantly. One can no longer read a book whilst waiting, without making a herculean effort to tune out the obnoxious and intrusive "electronic pacifier". I consider it an actual form of abuse to subject receptionists/nurses/office workers to the incessant noise and garbage coming from teevee if they want a paycheck. I could never work in that environment, myself, as it would drive me quite insane I'm sure.
