Older people watch more TV but enjoy it less.


They studied the hobbies and habits of 4,000 Americans ages 15 to 98. TV blew away all other leisure-time activities, including socializing and reading.

Researchers found that older people weren't able to use their television time as a way to de-stress, unlike younger viewers.
