Any new statistics? This is an article that is 14 years old.
thanks.. would love to see an updated article
I have no kids & no pets. Recently retired the hubby & I spend plenty of time together. We both like different TV shows & enjoy it. I turn off the volume on most ads & sometimes change channels so often watch in another room. I am staying on plan & walking daily. If I didn't watch TV, I would be reading or sitting in a bar or restaurant as you can't be active 24/7. I like catching up on old movies so perhaps the article should be aimed at Millennials not Baby Boomers.
Excellent read. Good need-to-know information!
Reading and travel are my game, but I am catching up on tv from the decades when I never saw it.
So much judgment of other people's lives in the comments. Don't put other people down for doing something you don't enjoy. Jeez.
Thank you so much for this great article and your outstanding wisdom.
Todays challenge is to turn off your TV. We unplugged the TV from service 4 years ago, the only thing we watch on our TV is DVD movies. We get our news from the internet.
Great info here
guilty. but mostly watch recorded programs so miss the commercials
Great article I barely watch TV so I know I am doing something right
Very Helpful article.
