Brits watch more TV than ever, says report by Thinkbox
The Guardian in discussion of a report by Thinkbox reports here that British viewers watched more than 26 hours of TV per week each last year – a record high matched only in 2003 – thanks to a combination of factors including hit shows such as The X Factor, bad weather and belt-tightening consumers spending more time on the sofa as the economic downturn took hold.
