Were in the middle of TV Turnoff week. Its an international effort to get people to try watching less television, at least for a week. Are you participating? Do you feel like you watch too much TV? Do you try to watch less? Have you made peace with your TV viewing habits? TV is The Conversation. Why spend an hour on public radio talking about TV? Well, Americans spend more of their leisure time watching TV than doing anything else. The US government estimates that adults spend on average 2 hours a day watching TV. Kids spend more time watching TV than going to school. How can we understand America without understanding our TV obsession?
