Study: Conservatives Love Reality Shows Like DWTS and The Bachelor

This might (finally) explain how Bristol Palin got to the finals on Dancing With the Stars Season 11!

Experian-Simmons gave Entertainment Weekly the results of its annual report measuring which TV shows among the survey group were watched by the highest concentration of self-identified “Liberal Democrats” and “Conservative Republicans.”

According to the study, Dems went for “sarcastic” media-savvy comedies like 30 Rock and Glee while Cons went for serious work-centered shows and reality competitions like Castle, NCIS, The Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars.

Read the full report for more. It's pretty fascinating — especially since new Bachelor spoilers point to a decidedly un-conservative Season 16. Always know your audience!
