I guess like Chris said, I can see the difference as similar to 'like.'
I like watching TV.
but not 'I liked watching TV yesterday.'
(this would arguably mean that I don't like watching TV anymore, or that I don't like watching TV in general but I did yesterday, neither of which is the case for the usage in question.)
In the current situation of questions and answer, I like the arguement that 'I enjoyed watching TV.' doesn't answer the question. But, do you think that's a truth or a NS feeling about the exchange?
arguement for it answering the question but a NS feeling otherwise:
A: I really enjoyed cooking yesterday.
B: But, you hate cooking.
A: Yeah, but yesterday I had some good music on. I was dancing around and it was actually a lot of fun.
What did A do yesterday?
A enjoyed cooking.
I'm not arguing, just stumped and confused. Either way, can we agree that it's 'wrong' but grammatical?
