Television and OCD

I am struggling with avoidance.  There are shows that I am missing on and movies that I wish to watch.  I am concerned about this.  I making television too important.  I now wonder if television is more than an obsessive thought.  I believe that anything that takes priority over God is or could be a form of idolatry.  I pray to study and read His Word as well as to pray daily.  I still have the compulsion of looking up information.  It is now getting more annoying and time consuming than anything.  I do have obsessive thoughts about television.  I do wonder if I am still going to make things better or worse.  I don't like what I have done or what I have done.  Television is safe for me. Maybe it is time I turn it off or watch safe programming.  Whatever I choose to do, I have to keep in mind that my choices may or will have an effect on me.  I get drawn to adultery, to movies, and to certain themes.  Maybe just maybe I should ask God if it is okay to watch a certain show.  I used to reject these shows because of my faith.  Maybe I should start watching that again.
