As I’m watching an episode of “NCIS,” I also am writing this blog. When I’m finished, I need to buy something online. And then I’ll have to update my Facebook page, which may also lead to a game of Bejeweled.
Apparently I’m not alone in my distracted TV viewing habits. An Adweek/Harris Poll shows that Americans are not giving their undivided attention to their TV screens. According to the survey, while watching TV most Americans also
- Surf the Internet (56%)
- Read a book, magazine or newspaper (44%)
- Go on a social networking site (40%)
- Text on their mobile phone (37%).
The survey did not draw any conclusions as to what the findings mean. And I don’t have time to figure it out because “NCIS” is getting good.

I love it! I am usually playing a game on my computer, cooking or on the phone – but thank goodness that I tape all of the shows that I really want to watch.
I am the epitome of a distracted viewer. It makes me feel less guilty for watching TV if I am doing something else.
