Americans hugely addicted to TV, but money doesn’t follow

I’m guessing this has something to do with the current unemployment rate in the US.


Both regular and time-shifted TV viewing are on the rise, with
time-shifted viewing posting a whopping 52.5 percent year-over-year
increase from the third quarter of 2007 to the third quarter of 2008;
regular viewing was up only 4.1 percent.
