DVR alert! Here’s What’s on TV Today

Did you know Americans watch the most TV? Of course we do – with like 300 different networks producing so many original shows it’d literally be impossible to find enough time to watch all of ’em.
But we’re gonna try. According to a study, people in North America watch more TV than anyone else in the world. We watch an average of four hours and three minutes a day, which is WELL above the worldwide average of just under three hours.

The study also found that American TV shows are the most popular worldwide. British shows are second. You can celebrate our achievement with some great new television.

New TV:

  • The series premiereof “On Tour with Aspergers Are Us”at 8:00 p.m. on HBO.  A six-part, half-hour documentary series that follows Aspergers Are Us on a cross country tour.  They’re a four-man comedy troupe of friends with Asperger syndrome.  (Trailer)

 

  • “The Voice”at 9:00 p.m. on NBC.  The live results of the Top 24 eliminations.

 

  • The sixth season premiere of “The 100″at 9:00 p.m. on the CW.

You may remember that the Supreme Court ruled a few years ago that such sentences violated a person’s constitutional rights.  So now everyone who’d gotten a life sentence when they were still a kid is having their cases opened again.
