Science says people who watch re-runs of Friends are smarter

Turns out watching all those Friends re-runs means you're SMARTER than others!

A recent study by DIRECTV set out to see if there was a link between which TV shows were watched and academic success.

Using info from a range of US universities, the researchers compared exam results against the TV shows that the participants couldn’t stop watching.

The results showed that those who aced their exams and were doing well in life tended to watch Friends. Other shows that high achievers watch include The Simpsons, South Park and Seinfeld. It wasn’t all good news though.

The study showed that those who watch Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad performed worse in their exams. But on the up side they were more likely to be funny!
