What are the effects of fast-pased TV on kids?

Here is a summary of a study that used Spongebob as a fast-paced TV program to determine the effects of reduced learning on 4 year olds.


Basically this study found that after watching one 9 minute episode of Spongebob (as opposed to educational TV or drawing) caused 4yo to do 50% as well as the other two groups on a standardized test for attention and focus... Makes you truly wonder about the ‘benefits’ of TV.
