TiVo Releases List of the Top Shows Watched Before Bed: Did Your Favorite Make the Cut?


Is television in bed part of your nightly ritual? In my home it is. There’s nothing more relaxing than putting on pajamas, sliding into clean sheets, and turning on the television to watch a little Anderson Cooper before drifting off. Don’t judge. There’s something about that silver fox that I can’t resist. Even if I am not his type.

According to a recent study by TiVo shared with The Daily Beast, I’m not the only one tuning in before bed. TiVo collected data from 47,000 households to determine what Americans were tuning into before tuning out. Here are the top 10 most popular shows. Is your favorite one of them?
