Which movies are most popular with kids and adults?
It’s hard to know for sure how many kids watch TV shows and movies in the U.S., but one big trend is that older viewers are getting more excited about what’s happening.
A new survey by the Nielsen Company found that adults ages 18 to 34, or about one-third of the population, are watching more TV than kids.
That’s because younger kids tend to have access to more media content, but also because older kids tend not to watch so much TV.
Here’s what the data says about what it’s like to watch more TV. 1.
Older viewers tend to watch less TV What it is: A greater percentage of older people watch fewer TV shows than kids, according to a Nielsen survey of 1,099 adults ages 25 and up.
What it means: Older people tend to be more likely to binge watch shows they already know they like and to spend more time watching TV, said Sarah Ries, a Nielsen media analyst.
Younger viewers, on the other hand, tend to want more TV and tend to find shows they enjoy less appealing.
Younger kids are more likely than older kids to buy expensive TVs and accessoriesWhat it is-: A larger percentage of younger kids buy TVs and other electronics with a higher price tag than older children.
What that means: The trend is especially strong among younger children, according the survey.
About half of children ages 4 to 17 in the survey said they bought a new TV for the first time last year, compared with 41 percent of adults ages 50 and older.
Younger people are more interested in watching more than older peopleWhat it means-: Older kids are much more likely in the Pew Research Center survey to be avid television watchers.
The survey found that about a third of 18- to 34-year-olds say they watch TV or movies at least a little bit each day.
Younger adults are much less likely to do so, about 18 percent.
In the survey, the proportion of 18 to 35-year olds who said they watched at least some TV each day was 17 percentage points higher than that of adults 50 and over.
The proportion of those who said at least one TV was watched at home each day fell from about 28 percent to 16 percent, with those ages 18 and over accounting for most of the decline.
Younger TV watchers are less likely than their older peers to say they’ve seen all the TV shows they’ve wantedWhat it’s about: Older children and teens are more inclined to say that they have watched all the shows they want to see, which may help explain why they’re more likely not to have watched every episode.
The Pew survey found a similar trend in the 2015 survey.
Older kids prefer watching more shows than younger kidsWhat it does-: Younger kids, especially younger kids, are more apt to prefer watching shows they haven’t seen before, said Ries.
That may be because younger children have more access to their parents’ collections and have more resources for their TV and movies, said Roberta G. Braga, a research psychologist at Northwestern University.
Younger children also tend to like to be the ones to ask what they want, she said.
Younger generations watch more media than older generationsWhat it involves-: The Pew report shows that older generations are much better at tracking what they’ve been watching.
Younger, more technologically savvy people are much easier to reach, and are more comfortable using social media and other media to find new and interesting things.
Younger families tend to enjoy TV and film shows more than their parents did, according, to the survey results.
Younger millennials are more accepting of video games and other games that challenge their worldviewWhat it entails-: Pew found that younger millennials are accepting of games that have a broader appeal than their generation did, and that they are more concerned with the quality of video content.
Older generations are more negative about games like Grand Theft Auto IV and the likes, which are seen as entertainment products that are “too violent and overly realistic.”
They’re also less likely that they think of them as games at all.
Younger audiences have more of an interest in online video than older audiencesWhat it encompasses-: In the Pew survey, younger millennials were more likely, on average, to say it’s important to watch online video, than older adults.
They were also more likely (34 percent) to say online video is an important part of the way they interact with technology.
Older adults were more willing to say there is a difference in the way people interact with online video and real-life activities, according.
Younger consumers are more willing than older consumers to spend on new toysWhat it includes-: Millennials are also more willing and able to spend money on new items than older viewers, the survey found.
The study also found that millennials are willing to spend a greater percentage on accessories for their TVs, computers and other devices, compared to older people.
Younger parents are more active on
