WHO WATCHES TV TH ESE DAYS? or years, experts have been predicting that people wilt watch less and less TV. However, recent research shows that it's F actually more popular than it was ten years ago. But why? Some of the facts are truly surprising. They show that American teenagers actually watch 5% more TV now than they did five years ago. Also su rprising is the fact that US adults watch far more online video than their teenage children. Teenagers spend about three hours a month watching online 1V compared to the five and a half hours spent by young adults (18 to 24-year-olds). Interestingly, Americans are using their televisions to watch live TV rather than DVDs or ontine programming. In fact, 92% of American TV viewing is for live programmes (particularly news shows). While 32% of US homes own a DVD recorder, only about half of them use it to record programmes. There were some interesting results on advertising, too. They found that teenagers are 31% less likely to remember an ad than an adult. However, teenagers appear to like advertising more. In fact. once an ad has caught their attention, they' re 44% more likely to remember it than an older person. So, how much television are they watching? American teenagers sit in front of the TV for about three hours and 20 mi nutes a ENG LI SH UNLOCKED!

Indonesia and Venezuela ... and considerably less than the world's leading teen couch potatoes: the South Africans, who spend over five hours a day in front of the bm:! And what are people wa tching on TV? Research suggests that teenagers and adults like a lot of the same shows, which include dramas such as House, and talent contest shows such as American Idol. However, teenagers d on't watch as much sport o r current affairs programmes (such as the news) as their parents. Over in the UK, the most popular shows include Britain's Got Talent and The X Factor. In fact, the final of The X Factor attracted the most viewers for a si ngle show in 2010, with over 17 million people watching it. Reality shows such as I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Hue are often in the top 10, as are d ra mas such as the long-running soa p operas EastEnders and Coronation Street. Finally, sport pulls in a big crowd . Apparently, 17 million people watched England get beaten by Germany in the 2010 World Cup. More than those who watched the final! So, it looks as if the future of television is safe.
