Time With Family More Popular Than TV

"Gallup's annual Lifestyle poll asked Americans, without prompting, to name their favorite way to spend an evening. Nearly one in three Americans say their ideal evening is spent at home with family, making that activity the most popular, followed by watching television. These two activities have traditionally ranked as Americans' favorite ways to spend the evening. Family and friends rank first with younger adults, while watching television ranks first among older adults. Employed adults also prefer time with the family, while those who are not employed prefer to watch television. The poll, conducted Dec. 5-8, 2005, finds that 32% of Americans say staying at home with the family is their favorite way to spend an evening, while 22% mention watching television, and 11% say reading. Other favored ways to spend the evening include resting or relaxing (8%), dining out (6%), entertaining or visiting friends (4%), or going to the movies or theater (4%)."
