Americans watch about 4 to 7 more hours of TV than the rest of the world
The United States, when compared to other countries, has a higher level of television viewing, according to Quartz. A chart, created by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, shows that Americans watch about nine hours of television a day on average, where as the countries below it — like Spain, Hungary and the United Kingdom — watch close to or around five hours of television per day.
“The U.S. is way ahead of the rest of the world in its TV addiction,” said the report on numbers gathered in 2011. “The members of an average American household collectively watch more than eight hours of television a day, while the rest of the OECD ranges from two hours a day (Sweden) to just under five (Hungary).”
