I have an example of both. DN (who is now 7) talked like crazy and very clearly at a young age (sentences well before 2). My sister lived with my parents while he was a baby and they had the tv on a LOT. But, DS also was advanced speech-wise -- well ahead of the other kids in his class at daycare -- and we didn't let him watch anything at all until he was 18 months, and after that we still restrict tv a lot (I've gotten less restrictive the past 6 months, but he still watches only a few shows/movies a week). While I suspect there is some impact, I personally think personality and aptitude is a larger factor.
