I had the tv on a lot while DS1 was a baby (I like having background noise) and he seems behind on speech to me. I did have another parent recommend more tv to get him talking, but I didn't take him too seriously. Since I am a pretty quiet person, it may not have been a bad idea...
Eta: he wasn't at all interested in the tv until closer to two. It was just on for background noise for me. And he was an early talker, but I consider him behind because, though he talks a lot, his pronunciation is poor. My 2yo has better pronunciation than my 3yo.
