cinema_babe: A Question about TV and Diners

What are your opinions on the growing trend in renovated diners to include several large flat screen TVs? Do you welcome the opportunity to be able to be able to catch the big game or your favorite TV show while noshing or do you see it as noise encroaching on one of the last bastions of F2F interaction?

If the flat-screen TV's are just used to show broadcast TV, I'm cool with it. The broadcast just kind of fades into the background, anyway. I hate hate frickin' HATE when they are used to display ads, though. Flashing ads at your customer base like that is really tacky.

As long as the sound is off, I'm okay with the concept - it sort of fades into the background for me.
