Average American And TV
According to Harris, the average American watches television 17 hours a week. Women (20 hours a week) watch more than men (14 hours). People with an eighth-grade education (20 hours) watch much more than those who went to college (14). Blacks (25 hours) watch much more than whites (16). People who earn less than $5,000 a year (22 hours) watch much more than those who earn $15,000 and up (13 hours). Those who have two sets watch just about the same amount as those who have only one.

The 23rd Channel
The TV is my shepherd. My spiritual growth shall want. It maketh me to sit down and do nothing for it’s name’s sake, because it requireth all my spare time. It keepeth me from doing my duty as a Christian, because it presenteth so many good shows that I must see.
It restoreth my knowledge of the things of the world, and keepeth me from the study of God’s Word. It leadeth me in the paths of failing to attend the evening church services, and doing nothing in the Kingdom of God.
Yea, though I live to be a hundred, I shall keep viewing my TV as long as it will work, for it is my closest companion.
Its sounds and pictures they comfort me.
It presenteth entertainment before me and keepeth me from doing important things with my family. It fills my head with ideas which differ from those in the Word of God.
Surely, no good thing will come out of my life because of so many wasted hours, and I shall dwell in my regrets and remorse forever.

Broadcasters had challenged several FCC decisions on “fleeting” instances of indecent speech and nudity. In the narrowly written, unanimous opinion, the justices overturned the FCC’s enforcement actions on the grounds that it had acted without giving broadcasters “fair notice” that fleeting expletives and nudity violated indecency rules. – USA Today …in their “opposing view” article – not their actual stance. They support allowing this on TV.

In case you hadn’t noticed, there are an awful lot of lady parts being discussed on broadcast TV these days. And they aren’t the only ones exposed — the male anatomy is explicitly mentioned on prime time as well, markedly more than even a few years ago. “Broadcast networks say they have to compete against cable and that’s why they’re pushing the envelope like this,” Winter said. “They’re forgetting that they’re broadcast networks that use public airwaves and go out to every single person who has a TV.” – LA Times
