    You have watching TV too long.

    Yes, but you must use "been" after "have".

    Re: You have watching TV too much.

    Or, in general, you watch too much TV.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: You have watching TV too much.

    "You have been watching TV for too long" is correct if you mean at one sitting.
    A person might not watch too much TV in general, but if they are watching TV for 7 hours straight, you might consider that "too long".
