Varus touched on this story in another thread. Just for giggles, Entertainment Weekly ran a story breaking favorite shows along partisan lines (via some survey). They didn't specify that this list is in actual order of preference or what the percentages were:

I have no idea what a Treme is but there's a note in the article saying its percentage share among Republicans wasn't even measurable.

I've never heard of half of these shows. What is Swamp Loggers, and why do Democrats hate it while Republicans like it?

Republicans hating Dexter and The Walking Dead? As if I needed another reason to never be a Republican.

Think along the lines of 'Deadliest Catch' only they're in a swamp in NC cutting down trees.

Out of the Democrat favorites, the only one I follow with any regularity is Always Sunny. I like Modern Family every time I catch it on but never set out to watch it.

Out of the Pubbie favs, I watch Pawn Stars on a slow Saturday now and then. I agree with them that Weeds sucks. I made it through 2.5 episodes.

I like 'Kitchen Nightmares', but they're right on the rest of the Dem hate list. On the Rep. fav. list, I like 'American Pickers'.

We need a show about mummies to see how they fare.

I'm conservative, not a Republican redneck.

There's a couple of shows on there I like, but by far and large, it's all utter sh*t.

Edit: Having reread it, the only shows on the lists I do like are hated by one of the groups, but not on the favourite list of the other.

I watch 5 of the Democrat ones (Daily Show, Colbert, 30 Rock, Sunny, Office) and exactly 0 of the Republican ones. Not much of a shocker that age seems to be a big divider here.

But honestly, how can anyone like Leno? Smiley: confused

See, I can actually wrap my brain around that one. Some people like watching B-list celebrities out of their comfort zone, or say, watching the inevitable, feel-good conclusion that is the disfigured military vet winning it all. My fiance told me about that guy after the first episode, and I said "Oh, well that's who wins." Not for me, but meh.

Leno though...who would want to watch a comedian punt his way through an hour of stale, safe, tepid humor? It's sad, and I have to wonder what sort of blackmail that guy is holding on to.

On those lists, the only things I regularly watch are Modern Family, The Middle, Castle, and General Hospital. Oh, and usually DwtS.

Oh, I can think of some reasons...
Reaganomics


Although historically, the right hates vampires and the left hates zombies.

Dude, watching five pounds of mascara and pancake makeup running down some crying woman's face back in the 80s was one of my most vivid childhood memories. And, Vanessa Marcil sometimes shows up, so there's that.

This is why I don't watch much tv beyond wheel of fortune because my wife loves it, and the local news. Everything I watch is usually off netflix and it's usually a documentary on ancient egypt or aliens. Sometimes both.

If you haven't already, you should watch South Park's episode on the History Channel, and their postulating that the pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving were aliens.
