That's what music is for. Instrumental or non-distracting vocals.

I think a lot of people use television for "background noise", just leaving it running all the time, and I suspect people who consume that much media are in that camp.

I'm laughing at the: "I’m a subscriber to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and MLB.tv. I have a Roku box and an Apple TV, and I frequently purchase season passes to shows like Mad Men, Justified, and Sons of Anarchy"

How do people find time to watch all that "video"? How much of it is actually worth the time people are watching that crap?

I'm going for a bicycle ride, be back in two or three hours..
