"There are now more TV sets than people in the US. How scary is that?" The New York Post reports on a recent Nielsen study that says there are nearly 115 million TV-having homes in the US. And that each of these homes averages 2.86 TV sets: "That computes to nearly 329 million TV sets-more than the entire US population, estimated at 307 million by the US Census Bureau." This brings to mind the pleasant image of three or four television sets gathered in the living room after dinner, watching their human being. And the less pleasant image of what happens when the TVs decide to turn us off.
