TV Bad!

Committed Sardine has found another TV related article - this time saying that TV is bad if over 2h/d. I'm thinking, that if a child is watching more than 2h a day while growing up, the time in front of the tube is not being spent in sports and other activities that aid in achievement. That to me would be a pretty simple explanation for why more than 2h in front of the tube would be bad. Assume a child gets home at 4 and goes to bed at 9. That child really only has 4h of productive time to do anything with. If half of that is passive, then it seems to not be a stretch that if you spend more than half that time not learning to be active (something that university degrees certainly require), then the child is likely not going to be able to succeed.
