Yes this is true- People who are addicted to TV spend a lot of time sitting on the couch enjoying their favourite shows and perhaps munching chips, Popcorns, cookies or other snacks with soft drinks or Tea/ Coffee. This all may lead lead to increased Caloric intake with decreased expenditure, as a result these people gain weight- Insulin resistance increases which further leads to raised blood sugar levels. TV also deprives us of the precious time which may have been utilized for physical work, exercises, or in children for outdoor activities. 

If you have to watch your favourite show why not work on a pedal in the meantine, cycle, or treadmill in front of the TV
