In your house, is it you or your signifigant other that controls the TV and remote controls? .



The average person in a relationship sits through FOUR HOURS of shows and movies a week that they don’t really like.  (That’s 208 hours a year.  The source says “408 hours,” so we’re guessing that’s a typo.)



Two-thirds said they’d rather sit through a show or movie they hate than fight over the remote or start an argument.



1.  65% said sitting through a show you hate is a “sign of true love.”



2.  42% said it would be a deal-breaker if someone they were dating hated their FAVORITE show or movie.



3.  Most people said that when they can’t find something to watch, they usually fall back on something they’ve already seen.



4.  And 59% said they’ve grabbed food before sitting down in front of the TV . . . and then finished eating before they found something to watch.
