Saying you don't watch much television, as though it makes you cooler than the rest of us lazy Americans.
The phrase "in this economy" or "these days".
Playing off the word "stimulus" in commercials or advertisements, as though a $2 greasy burger is part of an economic recovery program.
Saying you don't "get" Twitter, or using the term "Internets", even though you do basically know what it is and just want to sound above it. If this is you, you might also tell people you "don't watch much television".

I'm reasonably well-informed about current events, but the name of this reality show guy just blew past me.

Perhaps I'm just lucky enough to keep finding them. You see through the schtick when that's what it is.

In any event, I always loved it when people would pretentiously sneer "we don't watch television....." Or the even better "we don't own a television...." This often occurred in close proximity to a college campus.
My retort was always something along the lines of an energetically effusive "oh really?? That's too bad...I pretty much watch it 24 hours a day. In fact, I think I was pretty much raised by a television...my parents were, like...Zenith and magnavox....Oh how I loved them...and still do!...."
Even though I really don't watch much tv at all these days....
