We have have more TVs than people

According to Nielsen Media Research, on average in US, there are 2.73 TV sets in the typical home and 2.55 people.
The average person watches 4 hours, 35 minutes of television each day. Young people aged 12 to 17 watched 3% more television during the season that ended in May than they had the previous year.

I read this statistic and found it very interesting. As it happens, my wife and I have three TV sets in our home, for an average of 1.5 TV sets apiece. These three TV sets are watched, on average, about 30 minutes per week, and that's mostly by me while I change clothes or fold wash. On the whole, we'd much rather use the TV's to watch DVD movies...but even more, we prefer to listen to the radio.

I enjoy numbers too! Especially the
Historical Dates. We took a trip to
Philadelphia, saw the Liberty Bell,
Independence Hall,Carpenter's Hall,
The First Supreme Court, and get this one, we stayed two nights at a
Bed & Breakfast that was built in
1767! The Thomas Bond House.Dr Bond
was Ben Franklin's best friend. We
took a handful of Color Shots!

Ain't Life Grand, if you have a
Positive Attitude? I enjoy History.

Comment? Record first name

1st. I would like to say that what I love about your blog is I always feel like I walk away with more knowledge.
2nd It's really too bad that their a such few good television shows out there and those are the ones that get cancelled. Ever watch Arrested Development? Smart show that made you think and got cancelled. We're living in a TV world and the shows that are being watched suck.3 TV's per house? How many of those TV's are tuned into Discovery or the history channel?
