I'd love to see how this plan has absolutely zero effect on television ratings, as it's a stupid concept unnecessary for any balanced person that realizes television can be good family/friend television, that informative television can increase your intelligence and that good television is just as much an art as movies, paintings or music. The Alabama Register presents you with a list of things you can do besides watching television , which includes such revolutionary concepts as "playing boardgames", "reading a book", "going to a sporting event" and "getting physical".
Little known fact: As long as a television anywhere in the country is on, you can't actually do the aforementioned things. Let's give a big thanks to the TV Turnoff Network and the Alabama Register for some creative new ideas. If this doesn't help America get less obese, stupid and obnoxious to other countries, I don't know what will.
An evil television sucking the soul out of an innocent American.
