I was going to suggest in another room, but another zipcode is even better! Turn off the TV.

In brief: Shouldn't watch
Its better if you don't have the tv on at all! however, its understandable that sometimes your children may want to watch a movie or other program (they should always be supervised).
Just make sure they are watching 2 hrs or less a day. Never put a tv in your child's bedroom.
