7 December 6th, 2011 General Hospital Named One of the Least Favorite Shows by Conservative Repulicans!

There is an interesting list out today at EW.com, which are the findings in their annual research survey by Experian-Simmons that measures the consumer preferences of various political ideologies.   In the  report, the company calculated some of the favorite — and least favorite — TV shows of political partisans. (Specifically: the report measures which shows among the survey group were watched by the highest concentration of self-identified “Liberal Democrats” and “Conservative Republicans.”)

The only daytime soap opera to make any of the lists was ABC’s General Hospital.  The mobster-filled Port Charles and surrounding hospital drama made the”Least Favorite” list of Conservative Republicans along with other notables such as Weeds, Dexter, South Park, Family Guy, TMZ, and Jersey Shore.

So what do you think of GH being placed on this list with these other shows in the Conservative Republicans least favorites? Let us know!

    Who cares what rightwing nut-jobs think? Just another reason to keep conservatives OUT of government because if it was up to them they would control every aspect of our lives.

    Did you read about FOX news attacking The Muppets? What a bunch of losers.

    This is funny ,Im one of those rightwinged nut-jobs ,I love gh(not as much as oltl) and I love the muppets.back to gh Ive watched gh since the beginning and never have I ever heard republicans hate gh or the muppets and I think fox news was just having a conversation about the muppets new movie , I havent seen the movie so I cant make a comment and I wouldnt make it here,and I am not a loser.since when is this a political sight ? ,has nothing to do with the soaps and repeat,the republicans dont hate gh. or the muppets.if gh has been getting bad press ,its about there crime stories ,there are to many of them,and the bad guys sonny ,jason,everyone involved ,pretty much get away with murder.gh glorifies crime,and thats the truth.

    I think, as a liberal, that GH is in good company,lol, conservatives are nothing but hypocrites, they prove that time and time again, so if they hate GH, who cares, its not the end of the world, and like i said, it looks like they are in good company.

    I’m not a conservative republican, and I can’t stand GH either. I think it’s probably just a general consensus as reflected by the ratings. Maybe if the show started to respect its veterans and stop trying to make heroes out of despicable criminals, people would think differently. Republicans don’t hold a monopoly on values.

    I find it interesting, and I think It’s a good thing. I love GH, been a viewer for of 30 Yrs. Now,if it made the list and like you say, the only one, of day time soaps. then that means that they actually watch the show, or know someone that watches it. How else would they comment on something they never watch or even know about?

    Now that’s funny because I know a LOT of conservative Republicans who are long time GH fans. In fact, one of them turned me on to GH!
