Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, August 31, 2021

The November run to the White House is looking like another tight one, so both sides are looking for every edge they can find to reach all voting persuasions: Democrats, Republicans and undecideds. The obvious medium? Television, of course. But where on TV? On the shows each voter group favors, thereby giving campaign ads their most effective timeslots.

Let’s see what shows click with which political bent, as determined by research by Interactive Media Worldwide:

For Republicans:
“Everybody Loves Raymond”
“The Amazing Race”
“JAG”
“8 Simple Rules”
“Last Comic Standing”
“Without A Trace”

For Democrats:
“Will & Grace”
“Extreme Makeover”
“Judging Amy”
“Quintuplets”
“For Love or Money”
“Crossing Jordan”

For undecideds:
“My Wife and Kids”
“Fear Factor”
“CSI: Miami”
“Friends”
“Who Wants to Marry My Dad?”
“JAG”

Hmmm… So basically, all three groups have one thing in common: All the shows they like suck. Suck hard.

Maybe the radicals are right: The two-party system is an illusion.
