Americans watch Netflix more than they eat, have sex, read, or shower

Aside from sleeping, working, and general leisurely activities, what would you say the average American spends the most amount of time doing every day? Eating seems like an obvious answer, or maybe showering and other hygienic practices, or maybe even religious activities. If you guessed any of these then you’d be wrong, in fact, according to a study from TDGResearch, you’d be wrong if you guessed anything other than watching Netflix. That’s right, most Americans spend more of their day watching Netflix than eating.

Time is money and Netflix is cheap entertainment. Have you ever logged the activities in your daily life? It’s amazing how much time we do (or don’t) spend on the things we think are the most important to us. If the numbers below are any indication: Netflix is becoming increasingly important to us. According to a study from TDGResearch the average subscriber spends about 90 minutes per day watching Netflix. That may innocuous enough but when you compare that time to some of the other activities vying for your attention, it may surprise you to learn that Netflix streaming is starting to take over your life whether you’re aware of it or not. This one is the most obvious of the bunch. Americans are spending less time reading than ever before. Young people are the most guilty while older folks continue to put in quality reading time each day. We’ll have to see what happens in the future as millennials grow up. Will they graduate to reading more often or will they stick with their 90 minutes (or more) of Netflix per day?
