At the risk of being branded unpatriotic, I bring you this bit of humiliating news.
While the amount of time Americans spent sitting in front of the tube rose by 3 minutes last year (clocking in at a cool 4 hours and 28 minutes), we only came in second place.
The Japanese broke 5 hours.
We’re bragging that we finished the Tour de France and the Japanese are Lance Armstrong.
I can only hope this lapse is about TiVo. Maybe we are watching more television, but watching it faster.
Either way, there’s no time to rest.
