CableTV.com used Google Trends to come up with a list of the three most popular reality shows in every state. Here are a few highlights:
1. “Sister Wives” was #1 in Utah, which is appropriate. Both the show and its stars were originally based in the state . . . and aside from the fact that polygamy is a thing in Utah, regional stuff is big in general.
“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is an obvious #1 for California . . . “Pawn Stars” is #1 in Nevada . . . “Love and Hip-Hop” is #1 in Georgia . . . and “Duck Dynasty” is #1 in Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
2. “The Apprentice” is #1 in Donald Trump’s future home of Washington D.C.
3. “The Apprentice” was #1 in the most places with SIX. The others are Idaho, Virginia, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. “Hoarders” was next with five . . . Michigan, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, and New Mexico.
4. By the way, the folks in South Dakota really need to let go of “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” . . . and leave it to those wild and crazy liberals in New York to make their #1 show “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.
