    Cool some /some others

    Hello!

    Is the usage of the "second some" correct in this sentence, please?

    "Some people like watching TV, some others don't. "

    Thank you
    WIll 17

    Thank you.

    What would you say instead: "Some people like watching TV, others don't." ?

    Thank you
