Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

Why do people really watch reality TV?



In a new survey conducted by Today.com, it turns out that a majority of the respondents -72 percent of women and 60 percent of men - watch simply because they're bored.



Guess that TV mustache!



The study, which surveyed nearly 19,000 people, also found that those who watched non-competition reality shows are more extroverted, neurotic and have lower self-esteem than watchers who are not fans of the genre. Additionally, 46 percent of the women and 26 percent of the men watch this programming because they like seeing how people with money, fame and status live their lives.



What shows are you breaking up with?



And what was the favorite reality show among men? Deadliest Catch and the Real Housewives franchise.



Are you surprised by the findings?
