Put down the remote and listen up….ok, ok, roll the DVR so you won’t miss a thing but you need to hear this.  I think you are spending too much time watching TV. Don’t get me wrong…I love TV too…but the new numbers are getting out of hand! 

Nielsen Media Research says the average American watches 142 hours of TV in a month. The typical home had a television on for eight hours and 18 minutes each day. That’s up an hour per day from just 10 years ago. And the older you are, the more TV you watch. Nielsen said Americans aged 65 and up watch more than 196 hours per month. Here’s an idea…have the wife hide the remote somewhere on your property..that way you have to search for it and you will get a little exercise at least.  We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
