The TV Turn Off Network presents Facts and Figures (warning: PDF) about the television viewing habits of Americans. Some of my favorites: 25% of teens can name the city where the US Constitution was written, 75% know the city with the zip code 90210; 41% of households have three or more television sets; there is a 1 in 4 chance that one will fall asleep with the television on; students spend more hours in a year watching television than they do in school; 54% of 4 to 6 year-olds said they would rather watch television then spend time with thier fathers.
