Americans watched more television than ever in 2010, according to the Nielsen Company. Total viewing of broadcast networks and basic cable channels rose about 1 percent for the year, to an average of 34 hours per person per week (NYT).

- (meanwhile) -

The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls held at 34.3 hours in November. ... The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls decreased by 0.1 hour to 33.5 hours (Bureau of Labor and Statistics).


  1. BUT you have to adjust those dismal perceptions for people like TheProphecy who's self-reported work week consists of 33.5 hours of illegal movie downloading and TV watching... Thanks for brightening our national outlook Prophecy!

  2. And Year 5 of The Blog begins! How many hours per week do people spend here?

  3. also, can the blog administrator figure out how to indicate the years on the side bar. I know it will cut into valuable tv watching time.
