There's the news, drama series, home shopping and a lot more . Remember the as seen on tv products or services? Well, as the name suggest, they all first seen on TV.

But do you know aside from being a source of knowledge, TV is also a source of violence? According to statistics, the average child will watch 8,000 murders on TV before finishing elementary school. And by age eighteen, the average American has seen 200,000 acts of violence on TV, including 40,000 murders.
