Counter Calculates How Much Mindless Time You’ve Wasted Watching TV
Tii.me figures out how much time you've spent watching shows in your lifetime.
Television watching is a great American past-time. And with the rise of Netflix and binge-watching, consuming television content has become an even easier and more addictive habit. But have you ever considered how much of your life is actually spent eyes afixed to a television or computer screen, absorbed in the latest much-watch show? Now there’s a website for that.
Tii.me, created by Alex Cican, allows users to input a TV show and the number of seasons they’ve watched to see the hours and days accumulate. If you do one show at a time, it doesn’t seem so bad. Watched all of Breaking Bad last year? That’s only 1 day 23 hours and 32 minutes of your life. Been following Grey’s Anatomy since Meredith Grey’s first one night stand with McDreamy? That’s 5 days 21 hours and 11 minutes. But did you faithfully watch all the syndicated seasons of Law & Order? Well, that’s 16 days and 15 hours of your life that you can never get back.
As you begin to add television shows that you may have watched in your lifetime, the numbers begin to really rack up. Think of the year’s dedicated to Friends and The Simpsons. After awhile, you’ll wish you stopped counting.
