Mirando televisión.


Explanation:
"Mirar" is the verb to be used whenever you want to express that you sit in front of the television to watch a program.
Mirar is the infinitive, and MIRANDO is the equivalent to the ING english ending.( gerund)

"viendo la television"


Explanation:
ando y endo = "ing"

In Mexico it is very common to say "viendo" not "mirando," it may very from region to region, so basically it depends who you want to say it to.

Good luck.
