I have this issue at my restaurant: The guests interrupt their meal to go watching TV. Some of them stay several hours in the restaurant, the food is served and the guests do not come to their table to eat.

Re: [OPEN] TV interrupts several interactions

Game Changer

I'm having the same issue as well. Sim drops cooking , even leaves the pan on the stove, to go watch tv. She sometimes watches while prepping ( it's a tiny home) but most of the time she just stops and goes to watch. She also stops eating to watch, or sometimes she sits on the table to eat then gets up picks up her plate , sits on the sofa eats a bit while watching and then gets up again leaves her plate half emty somewhere and goes back watching tv. The Tv is off and in the same room. 

Also i have no idea if it is related , but it looks like it is , she also has issues with reading skill books as she'll just stop reading after a bit to grab another book from the book case. She sometimes stops eating to read as well. Bookcase is again in the same room. 

When she is outside on her Yoga mat , she will stop and go to the punching bag ( they are both outside) but i'm not 100% sure if she drops it midway or finishes first , i'll need to test that further.

The only workaround i found so far is to queue more actions after cooking,eating , practicing yoga, or reading skill books. If anything else is queued she'll finish the task . or keep doing it until i cancel it 

 

Got All Packs , happens with and without CC . Noticed after installing tiny living though i haven't played much since DU

Re: Sim Constantly Leaving to Watch TV During Practice Making Drinks Action

@phantomofhummusI have exactly same issue as yours. My sim was making simsmapolitan drink on bar, then suddenly he stops and goes to watch tv although his fun bar is fully filled. I better store the tv in family inventory while my sim is practicing skills.

I can confirm that I have this issue too.

I have a home gym in one of my houses with a tv perpendicular to two treadmills. If you tell sims to run on the treadmill closest to the tv, they automatically stop after a while and go watch tv. This issue does not happen with the second treadmill which is further away from the tv.

I am definitely having the same issue.

The thing is, because I use tiny living space, I can't help but put my TV on the wall, next to my stove.

Every time my sim cooks anything, it will stop midway and sit down on sofa and watch TV... 

 

Of course I can just remove the TV but I am hoping this can be fixed so we can have nice experience especially with tiny living pack.

Also had this issue with the kids' drawing table. Had to delete the TV from that room.
