African-Americans 18-49 used their TVs an average of 7 hours 12 min. each day in Nov. 2010-far above the total U.S. average of 5 hours 11 min., according to a new TV usage trend report from Nielsen. Asians used their TVs the least, just 3 hours and 14 minutes on average. African-Americans also used DVD players and video game consoles more than average. Across all households, White households’ primetime usage increased by 5.0 rating points with DVR playback, more than any other group. Asian homes had usage growth of 3.1 rating points, while African-American and Hispanic households increased their usage by more than 2 rating points with the additional DVR playback. (h/t Cynopsis)
Are you distracting and entertaining your life away? There’s an app – no – there are consequences for that. Academics, physical health, emotional well being. Gorging on a television and Internet diet isn’t the way to go.
Depression, avoidance, fear, disengagement, loneliness, boredom. There are many causes. Blissfully one solution.
