Scientists have warned that children should watch no more than an hour of TV a day to protect their health.
We want to know what you'd watch if you only had an hour with the box.
Would you watch your fave programmes all the time?
Maybe you'd only watch the news so you could keep in touch with what's going on in the world?
Or do you think one hour just isn't enough to cram in your fave shows?
Let us know what you'd watch.
Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
It's ridiculous there are so many good things on TV that last longer than an hour and if we could only watch and hour we would miss a lot of good programmes and plus what if you wanted to watch films? Scientists should think of things that are more practical, and plus who says they're always right.

There's too much hysteria about people being fat and unhealthy and technology supposedly ruining our lives. I struggle to see what is so harmful, watching the television even for two hours a day. Watching TV on its own does not make you fat! I don't know what I'd do...1 hour - that's pushing it!

How are you supposed to watch a film?
David, 12, Cardiff
The Simpsons all the way!
Claire, 15, Cannock
For some, 1 hour is WAY too little, but for me it's a bit much. I have more interesting things to do like reading, playing my music, playing sport and so many other things. If I watch any TV It'll be big brother-and Newsround, of course!

I feel that watching too much TV all at once is bad for your health but not if you watch it in little bits like I do and there is a balance between the factual things like the news and the fictional things like the Simpsons

Most of the programmes I like are 30 minutes long. I'd pick my favourite two and watch them both. I'd then watch two different shows the next day and so on. May be they could extend it to two hours as one hour is ridiculous. It would have to be more if you want to watch a film!
Rebecca, 10, Milton Keynes
I'm no telefanatic but I think that if I only got to watch 1 hour a day I'd probably watch The Sleepover Club and Tracy Beaker then be happy to meet my mates or curl up with a book.
Casey, 10, Kirkby
An hour! I can't believe it! I'd watch things that are funny to cheer me up!
Dalinder, 12, Wolverhampton
I'd watch a different show each day. Each week would have to include: Friends, Newlyweds, Will & Grace, The Simpsons, CD:UK, Neighbours and part of a film that I could finish the next week!
Julia, 14, Belfast
I only need 5 -10 minutes a day and that is to watch Newsround of course!
Sam, 12, London
I think I'd rather curl up and die than only watch 1 hour of telly a day. I watch about 7-8 hours and I'm perfectly healthy.
Rosie, 14, Didcot
AN HOUR!?!?!?! I'd have to say Buffy the Vampire Slayer
James, 12, Hereford
There are a couple of programmes that I enjoy watching, but at this time of year I'd rather be out playing with my friends.
Suki, 14, Sevenoaks
An Hour?!?! That's rubbish! Oh well, my list would be:
Monday: The Simpsons
Tuesday: The Simpsons
Wednesday: The Simpsons
Thursday: The Simpsons
Friday: The Simpsons
Saturday: The Simpsons
Sunday: The Simpsons

I don't watch that much TV at all and if I do it is during he evening. I do agree with the scientists that if you watch too much TV that it is bad for your health, but it is at that own persons risk. If they want t get fat or be unhealthy then it is their decision to make!
Libby, 13, Exeter
I'd watch about 2 programmes a day (for an hour) or record them if there were lots of good ones. Then on days with nothing interesting on, I could watch them. Sorted.
Ben, 13, Winchester
Easties and Corrie when they're on- if there's any time left over, I'd watch something else, if there's nothing else, I'd save it for another day!
Louise, 13, Surrey
if I had only one hour of TV a day I would watch documentaries and cartoons half and half
but I think it would be hard.
Pamela, 15, Spain
I wouldn't watch the news - just read the paper. I wouldn't watch music channels - just listen to the radio. I would try to avoid watching repeats, although it would be very hard. I don't think 1 hour a day is enough. What are you supposed to do if you get bored?
Kriti, 14, Essex
I watch at least 2 hours of TV a night but I think that is because there is nothing to do where I live!
Laura, 14, Northern Ireland
I think it's ok to watch TV as long as you get enough exercise as well!!
Vicky, 12, Norwich
An hour is not long enough TV!
Sophie, 11, Newbury
HUH! You must be joking, I'd would not miss Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow for the world! Anyway, I don't ALWAYS watch TV.
Tom, 11, East Sussex
AN HOUR?? I agree with Alex, though, record everything!! But I'd only record my favourite shows then get up in the middle of the night to watch them all.
Emily, 12, Wickford
I don't watch too much TV but I think that one hour isn't enough. If I could only watch one hour of TV a day I would probably watch a children's programme like Balamory because I love it, the news headlines to see what's happening around the world, and of course I would have to see what's been happening in Big Brother!
Lisa, 15, Caerphilly
I wouldn't- I'd rather read!!!!
Katie, 12, Canada
I would watch The Simpsons for half an hour and then something to do with ghosts because I'm into things that can send shivers down my spine.
Ryan, 12, Coventry
I'd record everything and then watch 15 mins each of Buffy, Friends, The Simpsons and EastEnders a day so I'd never miss anything!
