MUMBAI: Nickelodeon from the stable of Viacom International Inc. will air a special edition of Ten Things Wrong With Television on the Nick News show.

This show will air on 18 December. Americans are watching more television than ever - an average of eight hours a day per family - and by the time most kids finish high school, they will have logged more hours in front of a television than in front of a teacher, informs a press release.

In Nick News, the show will be anchored by the journalist Linda Ellerbee who will take a critical look at the medium, Television, which plays such an important role in how kids see the world and themselves.

"To be media literate is to understand how and why TV is made, what it can and cannot do and not be fooled by it," said Ellerbee. "We wanted a better understanding of what kids know and think about television. After all, who watches more TV than kids?"

Ellerbee and Nick News surveyed kids across the country about what bothers them about television and posted their responses on http://www.NickNews.com.

In response to the survey, kids listed the following things that bothered them: TV stereotypes people; too much sex, violence and bad language; TV news is biased; so many channels and nothing to watch; TV shows don't reflect real life; TV makes me feel bad about myself; and TV news is too negative and scary; and there are too many commercials. The order of the kids' concerns will be revealed in the episode.

In addition, Ellerbee also addresses the relevance of advertising to television and media literacy issues such as understanding television, how and why it is made and what it is to people and what it can do to people, states the press release.

"Kids should remember that the viewer is, and always will be, smarter than the television," Ellerbee commented. "Television should be a tool you use, not the other way around."

Nick News, which is in its 14 th year is the longest running kids' news show.
