In an era largely defined by the internet, TV still dominates. According to a new report on media usage from Nielsen, TV is still the most popular device with 290 million Americans (about 92 percent) owning at least one. In contrast, 232 million (ages 13+) own mobile phones and only 211 million Americans are online. The report also revealed that about one in three U.S. TV households owns four or more televisions.
