A parody song of Loose Yourself by Eminem sung by Weird Al Yankovic.

Some lyrics:

"My butt is aching
As I watch NASCAR racing
That show about undertaking
Larry King
To "24" to "Law And Order"
The Weather Channel's boring like "60 Minutes"'s ancient reporters
Next up on "E! True Hollywood Story"
The rise and decline of twelve actors named Corey

Shows for next fall, they've already been namin'
"CSI: Boise" and "Touched By An Uncle" both sound pretty lame 'n'
So does "Everybody Tolerates Raymond"
And "King of Queens" jumped the shark the first minute
I can't believe Richard Simmons ain't in it

I'll move right on to "8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenaged Daughter"
Then I bet
I watch "The Bachelorette"
Followed by "Welcome Back, Kotter"
And "The Muppet Show" where they go 'Mahna Mahna'

"You're gonna lose your mind watching TV"
They told me, they'd scold me
But I'd still tune in every show (show)
My cable gets C-SPAN, TV-Land, and HBO
The Disney Channel and A&E and Lifetime (yo)

"You're gonna lose your mind watching TV"
They told me, cajoled me
But I still love Lisa Kudrow (drow)
I'm looking at C-SPAN, TV-Land, and HBO
The Playboy Channel and Court TV and Lifetime (yo)
(You're Gonna)"
Did you hear Weird Al sining "Couch Potato" on the radio last night?

a normal person, with a job and a career, socially awkward outside their work environment, who may be using the "excessive TV watching" in order to manage their depression or social anxiety
many people jump the gun and label each and every couch-potato they encounter as a lazy and unproductive member of society; however, a couch-potato may indeed be be a very functional, non-lazy person, but still watch excessive amounts of TV as an alternative to drugs and medication when dealing with their depression or social anxiety
