Television is one of the greatest inventions ever made

Television is one of the greatest inventions ever made. It allows us to escape the reality of our lives for the duration of our television viewing. This makes us feel relaxed and often times happy, so television can’t be a bad thing. For millions of Americans the love affair with their TV can often times turn sour. This is based on the fact that in this day age where we have more channels than we could possibly watch there is often times nothing on television. This article will examine the phenomenon of having hundreds of channels and not having anything to watch.

The main reason people feel as if there is nothing on the tube is the fact that we as humans have a short attention span. This translates to people switching from a channel once they become bored or disinterested. As they flip and they see nothing that really entice them they continue till they end up on the original channel in which they decided was boring the first place. The only people who think they have too many channels, are the ones who are engaged and have an attention span that keeps them glued to one channel.

With the growth of niche television channels, this eventually led to the growth of sub channels dedicated to things such as trout fishing and video games. This eventually led to there being a glut of channels in which only a few people were interested. For regular television watchers, this would add to the bane of them not having anything to watch because in their incessant flipping they end up in a patch of channels in which they have no interest in.

Have a large amount of channels is a good thing to some people but in reality less is better. If you only had a couple of channels, like people without cable or satellite television then you would be forced to watch whatever came on the TV. You would become adjusted to what channels show what show and create a viewing habit based off that. You would basically create your own TV viewing schedule and you would not stray from the fact that there is nothing to watch on television.

In the end people will continue to complain about them not having anything on the tube to watch. There minds are easily distracted and that’s why it will always seem there is nothing to watch. The surge of uninteresting niche channels also added to the death of television. Finally less is better and more is just a headache.
