Via We all do it, just some of us more than others. A new British study shows how many minutes per week, and how many days of our lives are spent deciding which TV show and movies to watch at home.

A survey of 2,000 people shows that the average week sees 24 minutes and 24 seconds spent deciding on TV shows and another 25 minutes selecting a movie. That adds up to 100 days of your life sitting there going, "I don't know, what do you want to watch?"

The factors which influence what people watch include the genre (41%), the actors (37%) and the length of a film (28%) or series (23%).

And 49% have taken so long to decide that they’ve resulted in not watching anything at all!

The study also found females are more likely to be the decision makers when choosing what to watch on TV according to 67 per cent of them. Because us guys get yelled at for channel surfing and eventually give up control of the remote!
