TV and Human Fertility

In an article on Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's plan to ban the sale of big-screen television sets in California (apparently he hasn't heard that Californians with cars can drive to Nevada, Oregon, or Mexico to go appliance shopping), the Daily Mail includes this paragraph:

Televisions account for about 10 per cent of residential energy use in California, the state with the highest population in the U.S., driven largely by the surge in sales of large flat screens.
So California's population growth is due to the sale of big screen TVs? What is it that people are watching there?

Does China have a two-plasma-TV-set-per-family policy?
