Yes, Men Hog the TV remote

Featured, Human Interest

By Chris Wolf

Science confirmed what women already know: men hog the TV remote.

Researchers (London Business School) conducted a study into TV viewing habits and found that men always seize control of the remote, regardless of whether they are planning to change the channel.

The research showed that even when a woman was watching a program that she wanted to watch, the man had to hang on to the remote — even though he wasn’t going to flip the channel.

This story was first seen in The Buzz newspaper, a media partner with Maine Coast TV. The Buzz printed version is distributed in Rockland Maine each week at these locations:

Good Tern Co-op • Dunkin’ Donuts • Jensen’s Pharmacy

Rock City Cafe • Southend Grocery

The Buzz online version is available each Friday at
