How much time do you spend in front of the tube each day?
If the answer is “More than you used to,” you’re not alone.
A new Nielsen Company study confirms that the average American spends an average of four hours, 49 minutes a day in front of the television. This figure includes shows recorded and viewed within seven days of their broadcast and cable.
What’s really interesting is that this figure represents an all-time high for television viewing in the U.S.
The figures are for the 2008-09 television season, the most recent completed season.
The average household, according to the same study, watches more than eight hours of television a day. Your blogger’s own viewing habits are more like an average household than an average individual, in case you were curious.
A great deal of that time, naturally enough, is spent watching LIVE 5 WCSC. I hope yours is, too.
