Get the gun out and shoot it! Or if you don’t have one of those handy, use a “real” TV brick!
We got rid of television programming 3 years ago when we moved. Before then my Sister in Law lived with us and paid for it so we just ignored it and spent time in our home office away from the TV.
Now we have a TV, but it is only hooked up to our DVD player and we really only watch MAYBE 3 hours a week, things made before the end of the Hays code and even then mostly just WWII morale movies and then maybe one a week.
