We are watching more TV than ever. According to the Nielsen Company
, Americans watched more TV in 2010 than any year in history. Viewing rose about 1 percent from last year—a breakdown of 34 hours of TV per person per week. Whoa
. If 34 hours per week isn't "too much" for most Americans, then what is?
We do a lot of discussing about TV here on Unplggd. We poll our readers on whether they've considered dropping cable, if they watch more TV because of DVR and if they keep a TV in the bedroom.
In all those discussions and comments, one thing always stands out: Even though there are plenty of people who've banned TV in their homes, most Unplgg'rs think TV-watching is "good in moderation."
But after reading that stat from the Nielsen Company, it's clear that "moderation" means different things to different people.
We want to know: How do you know if you're watching too much TV?
