Maybe you can get a child and lazy bum-proof lock on the TV, so he cant watch it at all when you;re not at home.
THE LIGHT-BULB STORY sounds like a tactic, to make his helping so unpleasant you'll stop asking him to do anything.
I agree with Jenna and the others. Go on strike till he gets a job and keeps it, pays his way, shares household chores ---till then, NO cooking for him, no washing, and find a way to make the TV inoperative while you're out.
And stop arguing falsely that it'd be terrible for the child to grow up without her father --- that's exactly what's happening now, and he is contributing nothing of value to her now.
Its time this king faced a revolution. Having NO man in yur home would be very much better than having this bum.
