  DIRECTV just did a survey that explored the relationship between TV shows and intelligence.

  DIRECTV最近刚做了一项调查,探究电视节目和智力的关系。

  It polled universities in the US and compared people's SAT scores to the TV shows they enjoy and watch most. And that early evening classic Friends was the favourite for people who perform best in exams.

  他们在美国的大学里发起投票,并比较了学生们的SAT成绩和他们喜爱并观看最多的电视节目之间的关系。结果显示,早期晚间经典剧《老友记》是考试成绩最优人群的最爱。

  Overall, according to the research, comedy fans are more likely to ace tests than drama lovers.

  总的来说,这项研究表明,喜剧爱好者比剧情片爱好者更可能考出好成绩。

  Friends was the top for SATs, but there were other shows that also indicated a correlation between good scores and time of the sofa. The Simpsons , which was also the most popular show from respondents, joined the likes of Top Gear, Sherlock, House of Cards, Seinfeld , and South Park as choices among the more academically gifted viewers.


  看《老友记》的人SAT成绩最高,但还有一些其它的电视节目也证明了好成绩和沙发时光是正向关联的。最受参与者欢迎的《辛普森一家》,还有《最高档》、《神探夏洛克》、《纸牌屋》、《宋飞正传》、《南方公园》之类节目,都备受更有学术天赋的观众所青睐。

辛普森一家人


  While Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, and Band of Brothers were the favourites for people with lower than average SAT results.

  而《权力的游戏》、《绝命毒师》、《发展受阻》和《兄弟连》的粉丝们成绩较差,低于SAT平均分数。

  So, you know, there's the suggestion that some television affects intelligence, memory, or ability to concentrate in exams. Or that cleverer people prefer cartoons and humour to swords and a man dealing drugs.

  所以,你和道了,有可能一些电视节目能影响智力、记忆力或集中注意力应对考试的能力。或者,更聪明的人偏爱卡通片和喜剧片,而非打打杀杀以及处理毒药的节目。
