For those of you planning on taking everything you've ever seen on television to the grave, listen up: A new study from the spoiler scientists at TiVo reveals that most people think you can relax!
Deadline reports that in a survey conducted by TiVo last month, the majority of people—27.7 percent—believe you only have to wait a day before talking about how [spoiler] [spoilered] on [whatever]. 22.7 percent think you should wait even longer than a day, while 22.5 percent say less than a day, and 12.6 say spoilers are fair immediately after the show airs. (16.6 percent said they "don't care," which seems rude.)
More than 78% told TiVo that they've had a movie, TV show or sports game spoiled at some point, with 36% specifically citing TV. Disclosure of a major show plot point was the most commonly cited problem, by 64%. Yet the revelations most frequently deemed the "worst" (by nearly 23%) are final results from a sports game that people planned to watch.
So. Don't spoil sports? I don't know. Bury yourself in the dirt and take a nap!
