    Re: Who watches television?

    I am seriously considering dropping cable tv altogether. Every time I look there is never anything I want to watch. And I am old and kinda stupid


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Who watches television?

    I wonder what the stats would be if they included internet surfing?

    It shouldn't come as a surprise that older and less educated people watch more TV; they probably have more time to do so since they're more likely to be retired or unemployed, respectively. A more telling measure would be what percentage of individuals' non-working time is spent watching TV.

    I have CF. I don't need TV.

    ...until we play on the road, then I need TV.

    You almost could rephrase it as "People Without Jobs Watch the Most TV".

    Re: Who watches television?

    This doesn't surprise me considering 90% of network shows are reality and "talent" shows. I can't imagine too many educated folks watching these.

    I wish there was a way to get only HBO and ESPN on cable. That's pretty much all I watch.

    Re: Who watches television?

    I would be just fine with The Velocity channel as my only channel. The history channel and Nat Geo are a disappointment now.

    It's just a hunch, but I would think that the obese watch more than their fair share of television.

    Younger age groups have the highest unemployment rates but watch less TV.

    Right. Discovery channel, History channel, Nat Geo, Food Network... all for dummies.

    Ridiculous story.
