Download this! Viewership of actual TV grows

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It goes against what you might suspect: we can now watch video on computers and mobile phones -- but a new study says we're watching more actual TV than ever.

From AP:

Nielsen Media Research said today the average American watches 142 hours of TV in a month. Last season 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.

Americans are also watching more video on the Internet and mobile devices, although Nielsen said cell phone viewing is mostly a guy thing.
