I am just preparing a table of English grammar tenses and I am stuck in passive voice of following sentence. Sentence in question is example of Simple Present Tense,

Do I watch TV everyday?

I am just wondering, will it be,

Is TV watched by me everyday?


Does TV watched by me everyday?

If both are the correct sentences in daily talking then which one is right?


Is TV watched by me everyday? is correct. Does TV watched by me everyday? is not. If you're looking for a version that starts with "does", you could say Does TV get watched by me everyday?. None of these sentences is particularly natural sounding though. I guess watching TV isn't a good fit for the passive voice, which is ironic since watching TV is such a passive activity.
