“Its been a year since our family pulled the plug on DirecTV.”
Good for you. When my wife was pregnant with our eldest we were at a friend’s home who had a six month old child. My wife and I both were amazed at how that baby would just stare at the TV.
That night as soon as we got home, I unplugged the TV and took it out to the curb. That was 21 years ago and three kids later, we still have no TV in the house.

Have there been any studies relating this phenomena to autism? Visual overload? Passive non-interaction with the characters?
Watching cartoons with my grandchildren - I have noticed the animation is so realistic - small kids must find it difficult or impossible to distinguish between fantasy & reality (unintended consequence?).
we just got dish network - family package.
There is no mtv or vh1
So far the kids seem pretty happy with Nick and Animal Planet.
I’m happy I finally to get to watch Fox every now and then.
