TV sets continue to outnumber humans in American households

Nielsen reports that we're one step closer to the inevitable RISE OF THE MACHINES. 

According to the research firm, the average U.S. home now has 2.93 TV sets. (Apparently that .93 TV set doesn't receive the Oxygen network.) That's up from 2.86 last year.

Nielsen notes that the number of people per TV home holds steady at 2.5 — "carrying on the trend of more
TVs per home than people." Yeah, that's a cute stat, until our TV sets rise up, overpower us, and conquer the earth in cool high definition.
