Data was collected using interviews, questionnaire survey, and documentary review. Quantitative data was analyzed by using SPSS version 16.0 while qualitative data was analyzed through the description methods.
The findings show that, seventy percent of the youth spent most of their times (3 to 5 hours) on watching TV. Apart from watching TV, seventy six percent of youth spent the same time participating in sports and exchanging views with friends. Investigating on the TV trends, the findings show that ninety two percent of the Televisions in our country aired the entertainment programmes such as music, soap opera, series and films as well as action movies. Further scrutiny unravels that such programmes have a direct implication on the bevaviour of youth in the region as underscored by hundred percent of respondents.
In view of such findings a few recommendation are put forth to help improve and mitigate the problems: The organ that deals with media Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) in Tanzania should revisit the policy guiding media programmes such that a more ethical and tradition nurturing programmes be allowed, the destructive ones have to be prohibited in our country. On the other hand children should engage in physical activities during the evenings, they should also go to open spaces to play with friends or spend time reading some educative books/novels thus limit the amount of viewing such destructive programmes.
