the average person in the United States watches about 34 hours of television a week
Is that truly watching TV or just having the TV on in the background?

Yeah. I put the TV on at night sometimes to keep the street noise out, like a constant hum to fall asleep to.

34 hours of TV a week! Someone else is pretty bleary-eyed from making up for my average, which is zero.

5 hours a day....really? Between work, school, sleep, errands and other out-of-house activities, how does anyone have 5 hours a day to watch TV?
I agree with crenquis: this must refer to the number of hours a TV happens to be on, or something like that.

full decade lost in the trance spell that only powerful narratives can cast over the human mind.
Or they could have been watching reality TV.
