A new study in The New Yorker has revealed that watching high quality TV drama can increase your emotional intelligence. No more guilty nights on the sofa eating ice cream and watching TV. Itís actually good for you.

Award-winning TV dramas used in the study included The West Wing and Mad Men. We are happy to watch Don Draper in the name of increasing our intelligence. Time to go back and watch the series from the start!

The Good Wife and Lost were selected for the second study. Those who watched the fictionalised shows showed superior empathy to non-fiction viewers. Naturally, we would agree we have learnt a great deal from Alicia Florrick.

With the good news just in we can indulge in the very best TV narratives without feeling guilty. Roll on Season 7 of The Good Wife.
