What do you think of this theory?Read below please.

What do you think about the theory that the show Spongebob Squarepants lower's a person's IQ? I think that theory is really stupid.The theory is 60 kids get randomly picked to either watch Spongebob,some PBS show,and I think there is a third option and that option is to draw.Then all the kids took some test.Apparently the kids who watched Spongebob,had gotten low test scores.The thing is no matter what show you use (that is like Spongebob or worse),your gonna end up with those kids having bad test scores.So my question is why did they only do this theory with Spongebob and not some other stupid show that isn't educational?Please and thank you for answering.

I think it's because Spongebob is more meaningless comedy and shenanigans (yes, I used that word), whereas a show like Blues Clues has more of an educational side to it. And I have heard about this experiment before.

1. 60 isn't nearly enough to make a generalization like that
2. Sounds flawed. We'd need more info to trust an experiment like that.
3. What season of SB? The 1st few were actually funny & IN MY OPINION, well written, but then it just got plain stupid after season 2/3.

Exactly. That isn't enough people for a study like this. T.v. Is bad for you period. It distracts the mind from important things. That is why my daughter is only allowed electronics on the weekends.
