i would mov it to another room, and at the end of the day just say no, i too was scared to say no to my ds, he was totally addicted to tv, i now realise that i was actually setting him free by not allowing him to watch, and that tv had a horrible hold over him that he wasnt able to break free from without my help. i do believe that tv is addictive, and that the kindest thing to do to recovering addicts is to remove all temptation and support them and love them while they go through cold turkey.
i have no tv in my main family room and my 3 children barely mention tv, they watch 2 programs on a sunday morning on the tv in the master bedroom (as i like to sleep in on a sunday morning and thats it, and being in the main bedroom it means dh and i still have sccess to it should we ant it.
by saying no you are giving her a gift - read 'plug in drug' it will confirm all you currently suspect.

Seriously, as long as TV isn't the only interesting thing in your dd's life, I don't think you have to worry about it being a permanent addiction. The addictive behavior you're seeing right now is probably due to the fact that she's getting to enjoy lots of TV at your mom's, and she'd like to enjoy it more at home, too.
