This makes complete sense. Think, if 1/3 hours of primetime television is commercials, then obviously the program is being interrupted frequently by
advertisements. This breaks concentration and numbs the viewer down to a state where they know they will be interrupted and thus concentration is less
intense. Soon, you won't even concentrate on your television program and then habitually this translates over to the rest of the activities the
viewer partakes in.
Basically what I'm trying to say is, television, through advertising destroys the ability to concentrate.
