면서 있다 mean in this case?
Why not just
TV를 봐 or
TV를 보고 있어?
가 : 뭐하고있냐?
나 : 그냥 TV를 보면서 있지

가: 뭐 하고 있냐? (What are you doing?)
나: 그냥 TV를 보면서 있지. (I'm here just watching TV.)
This question–answer pair shows their styles. We cannot judge whether these sentences are correct. Obviously,
가: 지금 뭐 해? (What are you doing right now?)
나: TV 봐. (I'm watching TV.)
is simpler and clearer. I prefer to say something in this way.
