  Man Watches TV Non-Stop for Week, Lives to Tell the Tale
Posted by Jack Mingo on 2001/01/16 18:07:28 US/Eastern

Stealing the idea from an earlier writer, who did the same thing 30 years earlier, this guy simulviewed 12 channels for a week, and then wrote a book about it. Neither one of them seemed to have much to say beyond what you'd expect: TV is mediocre, banal, non-reflective, etc. It would've been more interesting if he'd actually went for that state of nirvana I advocated seeking, back in my Couch Potato days (The Official Couch Potato Handbook by Jack Mingo, 1981).http://www.cnn.com/2001/books/news/01/16/television.lechner/
