Abstract: 416 college students (45% male, 6% Black) were asked to indicate how many hours per week they spent watching television and what their 3 favorite shows were. Only weak correlations between preference for violent shows and aggression were observed. Black males watch significantly more television than other respondents. Findings suggest that the frequently reported correlation between viewing televised violence and aggression may not appear when sex, ethnicity, and education are controlled in a sample of young adults.
