Great question. I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but here is a start:

Disclaimer: I haven't read all of those.

 

http://z5.ifrm.com/30157/88/0/p1094049/Ev_Four_Arguments_for_Eliminating_Television.pdf  8 pages from a book (I've read the book and believe it is worth reading)

I hope this helps! :)
