This paper analyses the results of a poll about the student's TV habits in the first cycle of CSE (Compulsory Secondary Education) of the IES Averroes in Córdoba. The relation that these habits have to the academic results is stated here, both in a positive sense and in a negative one. Moreover, the importance of analysing both factors (academic results-TV consumption) is highlighted in relation to other habits of use of the spare time that are not normally studied and that affect, in an important way, both to the academic performance, in general, and to the capacity of attention, wich in these ages, is directly involved in the academic success.
