In the lead-up to the 2012 presidential race, we as a nation have a lot of burning questions concerning the candidates. Who will actually lift us out of economic depression? Who will handle our various interests overseas the best? But, most importantly, who's watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia?
A survey on television preferences among the two major U.S. political parties was released today, offering up countless new ways to mock your friends of opposing ideologies. Granted, liberals have a lot more ammo. According to the findings, conservatives favor reality shows like Swamp Loggers, Pawn Stars, The Biggest Loser, and Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, as well as the comedic stylings of Jay Leno. Democrats, on the other hand, tend to watch comedies like 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report. But they also love Glee and The View, which is pretty embarrassing.
Here are the complete lists of liberal and conservative TV favorites:
The Daily Show
The Colbert Report
Parks and Recreation
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
The Late Show with David Letterman
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Saturday Night Live
Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
The Biggest Loser
Dancing with the Stars
Man vs. Wild
Wheel of Fortune
Because Republicans and Democrats will apparently never find common ground on anything, some of the shows on these respective lists migrated to the opposing sides' least favorite tallies. To wit: Democrats hate all those swamp-themed shows, and Republicans (shockingly) despise Stewart and Colbert. But everyone seems to agree that The Secret Life of the American Teenager is terrible, so there may be hope after all.
