e.g. Teenagers watch it 179 minutes a day.

A day is an adverbial phrase, which modifies watch. The preposition 'for' is omitted between it and 179 minutes. 179 minutes is also an adverbial phrase, which modifies watch as well.
This a pattern two sentence composed of a subject, a verb, an object and two adverbial phrases.

Are the explanations above is grammatical? Would you check them and correct errors?

    The only errors I see are these:

    The word is is missing before a pattern.

    Use italics (see other post and link) when you are referring to words or phrases NOT as grammatical parts of a sentence. So which words/phrases should be italicized?
