For the first time in 20 years, the number of homes in the United States with television sets has dropped.
The Nielsen Company, which takes TV set ownership into account when it produces ratings, will tell television networks and advertisers on Tuesday that 96.7 percent of American households now own sets, down from 98.9 percent previously.
We haven’t gone TV-less, yet, but we do have fewer televisions our home than we had in our house when I was a kid. Our kids never watch real television, they only watch Netflix or DVDs that we’ve ripped specifically for them.
