So much for the liberal bias in Hollywood.
New data from TiVo, expertly analyzed by Multichannel News’ Todd Spangler, shows that TNT’s "Saving Grace" had a higher concentration of self-identified Democrats in July than any other show on TV.
"Grace," of course, stars Holly Hunter as a boozy, promiscuous cop who seeks justic. So liberal … and soon, so canceled.
Rupert Murdoch’s Fox TV Studios pulled its support from the show over the summer, leading TNT to announce a 2010 end date for the series.
At the time, financial reasons seemed to be behind the move. The new TiVo data indicates that Murdoch clearly knew "Grace" was big with the Dems and had the show killed in order to drive the left completely bonkers.
OK, the data doesn’t really show that. But that theory makes for a better blog post, so we’re sticking with it.
By the way, the TiVo data also shows that among GOP viewers, "Deadliest Catch" was tops, followed closely by ABC’s "Wipeout" (conservatives apparently like to watch folks fall flat on their face, as evidenced by their support of George W. Bush for eight years).
Republican also really dug ABC’s now-dead "Eli Stone," which landed in their top 10. And, no surprise, the second most popular show among Dems? "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List."
