From flat-screen HDTVs to small, flip-open screens, TV viewing has become part of everyday life, far removed from the luxurious event that watching television was in its earliest days. In order to meet viewers' demands, small, local news TV stations, major broadcasters, and a sea of technicians, creative specialists and advertising professionals were hired to produce more and better programs.
These programs could be primarily instructional or educational, or entertaining as is the case in situation comedy and game shows. While not a few people would argue that it is better to spend more time watching TV programs from which we can obtain some knowledge, I honestly believe that entertaining programs are far more worth watching.
True be told, watching entertaining programs would help a person get over their fatigue. One can curl up on the sofa at the end of the day, turning on the television and switching to a certain channel to voraciously enjoy horror or action movies, or indulging in one's favorite detective series or situation comedies as much as one could. In the light of the diversity of those programs, it is safe to say each one is bound to have a good relaxing experience. This so called “recovery experience” allow viewers to detach from the day-to-day grind while providing them the distraction of being taken into another wonderland. People often feel the tensions in muscles are eased, thereby showing better cognitive performance afterwards.
Meanwhile, despite the notion that educationally valuable shows can help to engage and perhaps sharpen things like critical thinking skills, TV viewing is a form of “passive learning” where you sit back and take in information. This form of learning is not as effective as active learning where you practice skills and engage with information. So, even if you are watching educationally valuable programming, it would likely be more beneficial for you intellectually to spend the same amount of time learning actively. In a word, contents in the educational programs and the way they are presented may hook you in the beginning, but mere increase of time on those programs is unlikely to help you learn a broader range of knowledge.
As is stated above, I am convinced that we ought to spend more time on entertaining TV programs than on educational ones.
