Election Day Fun: Researchers Reveal Democrats and Republicans’ Most Favoritest TV Shows

Election Day Fun: Researchers Reveal Democrats and Republicans' Most Favoritest TV Shows

It’s election day!

Are you a Democrat? Great, go vote and then enjoy a nice episode of Modern Family or Community!

Are you a Republican? Pshaw, your side already has this election in the bag, so just stay home and enjoy a nice NCIS or Blue Bloods marathon.

Those shows make the list of bewb tube favorites with the most highly partisan audiences, according to Entertainment Weekly, which did the research and crunched the numbers. (Or, more accurately, paid a consumer research agency to do it.)

The full list of shows for each side is looong, so HNTP categorized the highlights:

DEMOCRATS

Most Obvious:
The Daily Show (duh)

Most Surprising:
Antiques Roadshow (can’t resist anything on PBS, I guess)

Most Obscure:
What Would You Do? (gay marry our box turtles, obviously)

Most Embarrassing:
Braxton Family Values (this re-breaks my heart all over again)

Favorite Reality Genre:
Science Shows – Nova, Cosmos, Nature (lies from the pit of Hell!)

Recapped by HNTP:

REPUBLICANS

Most Obvious:
Duck Dynasty (guns & bigotry, what more do you want?)

Most Surprising:

    I have only seen about half of the shows shown on the Democrat list at EW, but I rate that group as “alright” to “the best.” On the Republican list I can only find two shows that I’ll actually watch.
