Are you watching too much TV?

With so much diversity and variety of programming on television these days, that age-old question is as relevant as ever. And it was on David Letterman’s mind Friday night on his CBS “Late Show.”

So he went in search of an answer — tongue firmly planted in cheek — in a “Top Ten” list titled “Top Ten Signs You’re Watching Too Much Television.” And since we always love it when the subject of TV arises on TV, we thought we’d give you an opportunity to watch this TV-centric “Top Ten” list.

The impetus for the list seemed to have been some new study or set of statistics about the amount of TV the average person watches. “The average 65 year-old American will have spent nine years of his life in front of the television,” Dave said, introducing the evening’s “Top Ten.”

Then he presented the list, which included these items:

“No. 10 — Your name is Howard, but you go by Howie Five-O!”

“No. 9 — You lie awake at night worried about Mike and Molly’s cholesterol!”

“No. 5 — Only song on your iPod, the theme from ‘Benny Hill’!”

Wanna see the other seven? Then watch Dave deliver ‘em right here:
