Even before you read this, remember this: Every Hour of TV You Watch Reduces Your Life Expectancy by 21.8 Minutes. We spotted this today:
“Monthly time spent watching traditional TV in the second quarter of 2011 climbed 1.9%, to 146 hours and 20 minutes, a year-over-year increase of 2 hours and 43 minutes of monthly viewing, according to the Nielsen Cross-Platform Report for Q2 2011.
By contrast, time spent watching video on the Internet was 4 hours and 26 minutes per month on average, up 15% from a year ago — just 3% of the time parked in front of the TV.”
