zapophyl (noun) : A zapophyl is a person who simply can't be satisfied with a program on a TV channel and keeps switching (zapping)to other channels but still is unsatisfied with what he/she sees. [I used -phyl instead of -phile for the suffix to look different.]

That zapophyl is going to give me a headache, why can't he just be satisfied with a movie or a news program?
