INSIDER conducted a survey and asked viewers to list their five favorite shows currently on TV. We also asked for political affiliations. 

After breaking down the numbers and responses from participants who indicated they were moderately to strongly conservative or moderately to strongly liberal, INSIDER found which shows held the biggest divide between those groups. We excluded responses from those who said they fell into the middle range for political affiliation.
