Spanish term or phrase: pregada
estoy pregada a la television
roslyn
English translation:I'm glued to the television set
Explanation:
This is an extremely popular expression in English and while Oso's suggestion is correct, I really believe that here rather than saying I am fascinated with TV it is my suggestion.

Ex: "She has been glued to the TV all day watching the drama of the OJ Simpson trial unfold"
