Well, turn off the tv. Unplug it or even put it in a closet. She's four or five, right? So you have complete control.
As for the leaving you thing, just tell her that you will be right back, and leave the room. Do you have relatives you can ask to help by taking her on little trips/outings? Or hire a babysitter and treat yourself to some you time.
Basically, you're the parent. You have the control, if you decide to take it.
