[external link] …my essay below.Too much TV is bad for you and your children What happen to the American culture today? The American culture that we use to know to have a unique and interesting concept of what society should look like and what television is all about. In Study of Yahoo, it stated that Americans spend two to six hours a day on average watching TV. What does that means? It tells us that the American network companies will pay millions of dollars for a thirty- second ad to get their audience to buy their products. Broadcasting companies contribute money into television shows taking the good shows out and replace with negative drama show like "Jersey Shores, 16 and pregnant, adult swim, nip/tuck, desperate house wives, south park, the Simpson and family guy". All these shows became popular on TV because of the rating. The theory is the more popular the show, the higher the rating and the more money those networking companies charge their client. In my view, with competition looming for higher rating, there has been a serious step back into the admiration of what TV shows used to be or should be like. In the book, "They say, I say" by Gerald Graff, Cathy Brikenstein and Russel Durst there is an essay report by Steven John "Watching TV makes you smarter" and I disagree strongly. I say in my respond, watching too much TV doesn’t make you smarter it makes you dumber and it affects your health ability and sends out bad message to your children and change how they act and behave. Which why, I’m going to explain why watching TV is bad for your children, and how it affect their health and school and how can we control bad TV shows and what TV show I recommend for children to watch.With violent and sexual sense more prevalent on television, broadcasting networks are introducing corruption into the minds of our children. With shows such as nip/tuck and Desperate Housewives becoming increasingly popular due to its portrait of sex, drugs, and violence that involve those sorts of agonistic viewpoints to attract audience members not to the shows itself but to live those kind of lifestyles. A study by Jeffrey Johnson a psychiatric at Columbia University, "found that 10 to 18 year old boys who watched three hours or more of TV a day were about twice as likely as those who watch less than a hour a day to commit crime by early adulthood." Why, because violence is often demonstrated and promoted as a fun and effective way to get what you want." And so it’s true. It’s already taking a toll on my younger siblings Nexsan and Daniel. Also a study by Johnson stated that "The average American child will witness 200,000 violent and sex acts on TV by age 18. This is why too much TV is bad for your children because it lead to aggression and bad behavior, and also makes them become more sex oriented and active. . "Studies have shown that teens who watch lots of sexual content on TV are more likely to initiate intercourse or participate in other sexual activities earlier than peers who don't watch sexually explicit shows." (Jeffrey Johnson).Today with too much TV’s in our houses, children are becoming more inactive and tend to snack while watching TV. Most children become couch potato and do nothing but sit and watch TV all day. This can cause weight issues due to poor activity levels. Children who watch more TV are more likely to be overweight. For instance, I too was overweight for the past 7 years in America and my reasons are that. First, I broke my left knee cup back in the year 2002 and couldn’t exercise or play sport specially soccer which I use to loved and good at it. Second, because of my left leg injury, I was fearful that I will injure my other leg and be in the wheelchair for the rest of my life. And thirdly, I begin to snack and eat while watching TV. This became like a habit for me, before I knew it, I was overweight and couldn’t do something about it. However, last year with the help and inspiration of my girlfriend, I manage to stop watching too much TV and started dieting and exercising. Now I’m healthier than ever.
