Americans Own Fewer TVs: No TV Households Has Doubled

From Ars Technica, "Americans have fewer TVs on average than they did in 2009: And the number of households with no TVs at all grew." by Megan Geuss:
The latest data shows that in 2015, 2.6 percent of households had no TV at all, a jump from the previous four surveys in 2009, 2005, 2001, and 1997 in which a steady 1.2 to 1.3 percent of households didn’t own a TV. The 2015 data also showed that the number of people with three TVs or more dropped in 2015. That year, 39 percent of households had more than three TVs, whereas 44 percent had more than three TVs in 2009.
