Americans Consume 60 Hours of Electronic Media per Week
According to Nielsen, the average American watched 35 hours of TV every week in 2012. That's more than 5 hours per day and a clear sign that TV isn't going anywhere in the foreseeable future. In total, Americans consume a whopping 60 hours of electronic media every week. That includes TV, radio, internet usage, online video, video game, mobile video and DVDs/Blu-Rays. Adding to this the time that people spent on their mobile phones, which Nielsen does not consider here aside from mobile video, it is a surprise that anybody gets anything done, ever.
