Arg! We Can’t Even Agree on What Makes Good Television


Media research company Experian Simmons recently documented the top 15 shows watched by Republicans and Democrats. As you’d expect, Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann top the respective lists. However, there is NO crossover between the two lists. Here are the top 5 (and read a post on the survey at Outside the Beltway):

Republicans

  1. Glenn Beck
  2. The Amazing Race
  3. Modern Family
  4. American Idol
  5. V

Democrats

  1. Countdown with Keith Olbermann
  2. Mad Men
  3. Dexter
  4. Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami
  5. 90210

Look, let’s all agree the sitcom gold standard is still "Family Ties," and just move forward … together.
