TV Land Asks Fans Not To Watch On Monday (Sept. 20)

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It sounds counter intuitive for a network to ask people not to watch, but that’s what TV Land is requesting for next Monday (Sept. 25).

Monday marks “National Family Day,” and American families are supposed to celebrate by having dinner together – without relying on the boob tube for company.

Therefore, TV Land is doing its part by preempting regular programming between 6-7 p.m and instead feature photos of real families eating dinner while jazz music plays in the background.

Part of the rationale behind the event is a new survey, also sponsored by TV Land, which reveals that teens who share family dinners less than twice a week are twice as likely to smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol.
