Average daily TV hours per country The Economist provides this nifty chart of the average time spent watching TV in a bunch of countries.
| I don't even understand how it is possible to watch that much TV in a day, let alone how that's the average. My mind is boggled.|
| I says average daily household TV viewing, so they must be taking the sum of the averages of the household.|
Maybe the US just has bigger households. The Amish, for instance, have large families and oh wait, never mind.
Seems like a weird way to measure TV watching.
And these stats likely don't include watching The Office episodes off the web.
| All I can think is: |
- That's an awful A/V setup.
- Those damn kids are too close to the TV!
| My understanding is that the "don't sit too close to the TV" thing came from the first generation of colour TVs emitting too much radiation, which has been fixed for a long time now.|
Speaking of television, have you heard of "Flight of the Conchords? I think you would like it.
| Those kids have giant feet.|
| You know what that means...|
| I live in Belgium, which is a very small country, so it's kind of funny to see that the chart makes a difference between the dutch and the french part. Finally some proof that the french part is less productive :)|
| My understanding of what household TV viewing means is that the TV is on and at least 1 person is watching, so it's not skewed by the number of people watching at any given time. If the TV is watched heavily on the weekends, that could easily account for half of the hours for the week, so the numbers seem reasonable.|
| Moo, my Tv broke down So HA that brings down the average by like 0.001% SOOOO...|
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!
