Did Target Make a Big Mistake Causing it to Lag Behind Walmart and Amazon?

Your everyday, average American viewer spends about 5 hours a day watching TV. That of course end up being about 35 hours a week on average, which is a lot of time.  Whether or not you actually spend that much time in front of a screen yourself, the fact remains; why spend time in front of an aging, old TV when you could spend that time in front of a much clearer, more crystalline picture?
