Three couch potatoes now hold the record for watching television longer than anyone in the world.

Victor Lopez of East Los Angeles, Kevin Coon of San Francisco and Farris Hodo of Atlanta watched reruns of the show, "24," for 86 hours, 6 minutes and 41 seconds straight after a competition that began with 100 people vying for the record.

They were given ten minute breaks every two hours and plenty of caffeine, but in the end only three were able to make it all the way to the end.

All three winners will receive $10,000.
