 It is well known that TV viewing time in the daily life of the elderly is high, and TV viewing over an extended period of time has a bad influence on health. However, the relationship between TV viewing times and the health is unclear. This study investigated the relationship of these two factors among the elderly. A questionnaire examining TV viewing times and the Kihon Checklist among 407 community-dwelling elderly was carried out. The results show that the viewer rating of older people who were judged as frail in the items of “locomotion” and “depression” and the comprehensive standards of Kihon Checklist were higher from 4pm to 6pm.
