I share your guys' sentiments. I work at The Wave, a fitness facility with a decent weight room setup. No one really uses the free-weight equipment so I virtually get the squat rack to myself.
They took the pleasure of installing 4 (yes, FOUR!) new TVs throughout the weight room.
If someone is watching TV, I kick them off the piece of equipment they're on.
Just finished a set of Incline presses and want to recline back and watch ABC? Get the hell off my equipment!
Plus, the damn remotes hang down on a spiral rubber thing. Nothing more irritating than finishing a set of DB presses, getting up, and hitting your head on one while walking back to the rack.
(Speaking of random, I just had a guy ask me how to perform chin ups on a flat bench...
He meant crunches.
