    Re: then they watches TV

    They is plural, so you have to write they watch TV.

    The second sentence is correct.

    Use quotation marks, not parentheses, to mark text.

    Put a space after every comma.

    Capitalize the first word of a sentence even if it's part of a quoted sentence.

    Put a period, question mark, or exclamation mark at the end of each sentence.

    Note my corrections above. Don't enclose sentences you are querying in brackets - use quotation marks as I have above.

    Your second sentence is correct.
    The first is wrong because "they" cannot be followed by "watches" or "goes". Try that sentence again.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
