Sorry but when you look at the whole I guess this is the worst way to get out of the dilemma/catch 22 in which depressive people are finding theirselves.
Watching (too much) TV might be one of the main reasons that you are prone to get depressive.
You might have a temporary success but you unawarely feed anxiety and the associated feeling of no exit with stuff like that when you are depressive.
Undependently what you watch this kind of "activity" actually corrupts your abilities in imagination and building up a healthy spiritual attitude towards that what you face in your life.
When you do it in unduly fashion as a child it can reduce the physical developement of brain and do some irretrievable damage there.
Brainsciencists in Germany have researched and proved that nowadays.
As about all psychic disorder the currency, measures and the way of getting healed of it is an individual matter.
When you are not yet in a very deep stadium you can(still are able to) do a lot of things to get in control of your mental balance.
Every kind of own and not one-sided physical or spiritual activity is useful.
I`d say singing, also in a chorus is a very good thing to do.
