    Are these sentences natural? July 18

    Hi,

    Are these sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. I am just thinking out loud.

    2. She is on (the) TV all the time. ( I wanted to say that I see that person in many TV programs)


    3. It doesnít seem to fuss me as much as it does for him.


    Thanks,
    MG

    OK.

    3. It doesn’t seem to fuss me as much as it does for him.
    "It doesn't bother me as much as it seems to bother him."

    Thanks,

    Thanks. Should it be 'on TV' or 'on the TV' in #2?
