Mystery Solved

My father in law has his dream job.

 He is an artist.  He gets paid, every day, to draw pictures.

 He is also a journalist of sorts.  So he needs to be aware and current with all the events of the world.  On top of that, he is a bit of an insomniac.  Which comes in handy with the current events.

Often, when he has trouble sleeping, or wakes up in the night, he gets up and watches the news, or a documentary (usually historical or war documentaries).  Eventually all that learning puts him back to sleep.

Recently, he learned that he is not always alone at these times.  The other morning he had been snoozing with a show running.  He was startled awake by a soft voice saying

"Grandpa, why are you letting me watch violent shows?"

Keith was standing next to the couch, wide eyed.

I think I now know where he learned that bad word.

Consequently, if it is late at night or early in the morning, my Father in law now fights insomnia with the Backyardigans.
