A new study ranked all 50 states according to how much TV the average person watches per day. And I’m not sure this is something to brag about, but West Virginia CRUSHED everyone else.
The average West Virginian watches just under 4 hours and 31 minutes of TV a day. Delaware is next at 3 hours and 47 minutes. So almost 45 minutes less.
The ten states that watch the most are West Virginia . . . Delaware . . . Louisiana . . . Oklahoma . . . Nevada . . . North Dakota . . . Mississippi . . . Alabama . . . Georgia . . . and Arkansas.
People in Utah watch the LEAST amount of TV at 2 hours 14 minutes a day, followed by Maine . . . Vermont . . . Alaska . . . Colorado . . . Hawaii . . . Minnesota (There ‘ya go folks!) . . . Washington . . . Montana . . . and California.
The study also used Google Analytics to figure out what TYPE of shows each state loves the most.
Sitcoms and reality TV tied for first with 9 states each. News shows were next with 7, then ESPN with 6 . . . soap operas, 6 . . . animated shows, 4 . . . kids’ shows, 3 . . . cooking shows, 2 . . . and telenovelas were #1 in Texas and Florida.
New York is the only state where daytime TV was #1. And late-night talk shows were #1 in Vermont.
