When it was announced that Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian had successfully taken our fair city of Miami, and that Kourtney and Kim would set there sites on taking New York in the next step of Kardashian world domination, we wondered who would miss this silly little show? Sorority sisters was all we could come up with. Apparently, actually Democratic voters will miss the show. Yep, according to a new study Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami is the fourth favorite show of Democrats. Though, their third favorite show is the much better, but still Miami-set, Dexter.
The Hollywood Reporter writes of a study by media-research company Experian Simmons which asked a sample set of self-identified Republicans and self-identified Democrats what their favorite shows are. The results aren't all that surprising. Republicans love Glenn Beck, family sitcoms, family-friendly reality shows, and crime procedurals. Democrats love Keith Olbermann, little seen but critically beloved dramas, NBC's fantastic group of Thursday night sitcoms. Here's the breakdown of each party's favorite shows.
"Looking at the Democrats side, I don't mean to make light of it, but they seem to like shows about damaged people. Those are the kind of shows Republicans just stay away from," John Fetto, senior marketing manager at Experian Simmons, tells THR.

Ah, I guess the Kardashians are pretty damaged. Plus Democrats tend to watch more shows that center around women. So it all makes sense.
Though, just to put in perspective, more Democrats love watching the Kardashians than they do John Stewart.
THR says that Democrats also tend to watch Jersey Shore more than Republicans. We're going to guess that CSI: Miami probably attracts more Republicans. We're not quite sure where Burn Notice would land. Maybe it's the great bipartisan hit?
