Shock Waves Felt Around Your State
Did you know that there is actually a way to tell what viewers' favorite TV series are - by state? It makes sense that people flock towards ideas and beliefs that may mirror the communities they live in, but CableTV.com has taken it one step further to pull back the curtain on what shows are hot - where.
So take comfort in knowing that neighbors and family members alike are tuning in to the same shows in a big way. Or twitch your nose in disbelief - as certain reality shows can be a bit eyebrow raising. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares what are the top three reality series in each state, so brands can better target their core consumers through product placement in these, or similar series on a regional basis.
They Like WHAT?!?
CableTV.com went in and analyzed IMDB (we LOVE IMDB - and use www.imdbpro.com on a daily basis) and Google Trends to find the top shows by each state. The research concluded that viewers basically like to watch reality series that align with their general interests of their states. So take a look below, and let us know if your state is spot on - or dead wrong in your opinion!
This is what CableTV found: "Generally, viewers love to indulge in reality shows that reflect their own regional interests. Many of the popular reality TV shows in each state reinforced regional stereotypes and clichés. People in the South seem to enjoy watching the redneck branded, gun-toting Robertson family from Duck Dynasty. States infamous for polygamy embraced Sister Wives as their own, while those in the harsher New England climates preferred to test their skills with Survivor."
