Are people who don't watch social type TV programmes likely to be socially deprived or have weaker social skills than people who watch them? This applies to NT people as well those with AS.
There is a fraction of society who only watches documentaries, wildlife, news, cartoons, sci-fi, highbrow arts and music, or any combination of these programmes, but they do not watch soaps, dramas, reality TV, or chatshows. Watching this former category of programmes will do very little for somebody socially but the latter category theoretically can affect them significantly socially.
Also, is the reason that people don't watch social type TV programmes is because they struggle to pick up social cues? The mirror image of the original question.
