The research literature is reviewed on the influence of TV on daydreaming and creative imagination.
The hypotheses proposed to explain why TV might influence children's and adults' daydreaming

viewing stimulates daydreaming and reduces creative imagination, although decisive evidence of a causal relationship is lacking. The assumptions that underlie the hypotheses about TV's relationship
to daydreaming and creative imagination are analyzed and whether these assumptions have been supported by research is established.
