According to this article from Helium, watching television can help you sleep - but it all depends on the type of show you watch.
Apparently, sitcoms such as How I Met Your Mother, Will & Grace, Friends and That 70’s Show often conclude each episode with a climactic finale which consequently leaves you feeling satisfied. Supposedly, this feeling of satisfaction can then help you fall asleep.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there is no scientific source or evidence served up with this theory - so we suggest you don't rush out for that DVD box set just yet.
