Americans Use Internet as Much as Television, New Study Shows

Americans now spend as many hours online as they do watching television, a new Forrester survey released Monday showed.

More than 30,000 media consumers were interviewed for the study, which showed that, on average, Americans spend about 13 hours a week on the internet and the pass the same amount of time watching television offline.

Over the past five years, the amount of time Americans watch television has stayed flat, while the amount of time they spend on the web has more than doubled.
