A study released this week by Nielsen concludes that U.S. residents are watching an average of more than 143 hours of TV each month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The figure is “essentially flat compared to the same period a year ago,” the study says. It examined TV habits during the second quarter of 2010. The average breaks down to almost 4.8 hours per day, the story reports.
DVR viewing appears to be on the rise, with the average DVR owner in the 25-34 demo watching 29.5 hours a month of recorded shows.
TV viewing by teens is down, apparently an indication that they’re watching online. Television viewing is higher among older viewers, and women watch more than men, the story says.
