    Dust always collect on the TV screen first?
    I know there's some scientific reason behind this phenomenon.
    I'm guessing some kind of residual static electricity..
    Am I close?

    Don't be silly.

    Your TV is quite properly embarrassed at the garbage it's forced to
    display and is attracting dust in order to hide its face.

    experiment with a television and dust!

    Why ???
    1) The maid didn't clean it..
    2) You don't want to know..It's old CRT tech. Buy a LCD tv and have
    more modern questions.
    3) If you see the dust, you are watching too close
    4) Obsessive compulsive cleanliness is treatable.
    5) God is trying to tell you tv is bad and you should read a book on
    physics.
    6) Dust mites like to watch tv while eating skin flakes.
    7) Mr. Electron doesn't want to return to the source
    8) The tv has a special air cleaning feature.

    But seriously...
    Maybe it's a combo of screen charge and convection air flow around the
    tv. The electronics get warm which creates rising air above the tv..
    This draws dusty air from the floor.

    I'm sorry. I don't have any electrodes laying around. Not to my knowledge,
    anyway.
