Keys to History

Despite all his entertainment options and fancy new-fangled technology, this man has come to the same timeless conclusion that many TV watchers often come to -- "Nothing much on tonight."

  • What

    Technological innovations that spawned new consumer products -- satellite dishes, specialty channels, VCRs, DVD players, etc. -- have helped keep this trend going at the end of the 20th century.

  • Where

    In most homes, people generally watch TV in the living room.

  • When

    TV listing magazines have been around since the 1950s, whereas VCRs became popular chiefly in the 1980s.

  • Who

    According to statistics from 2000, Quebeckers spend an average of 20 hours a week in front of the television.
