Adult Americans spend an average of more than eight hours a day in front of screens — televisions, computer monitors, cellphones or other devices, according to a new study.

The study also found that live television in the home continues to attract the greatest amount of viewing time with the average American spending slightly more than five hours a day in front of the tube.
Five hours of TV screens sounds like a lot to me. Although there are some TV shows I like to watch, I often choose to enjoy looking out through our screened-in porch. I assume the study did not include time spent looking out through screened-in porches.
