The Results Are In
Last month, Mel from ChuckTV and vs. the Podcast organized an interesting poll. It’s hard for me, (Me <- Not a Statistician) to truly vouch either for either the accuracy of meaningfulness of the poll, and I don’t thing even Mel claims that it’s “scientific” (so don’t bet the rent of the veracity of the results). But it is interesting.
This is not the only information to be gleaned, but I think question #1 is the heart of the matter.
41% of respondents chose Chuck and Sarah’s “journey toward coupledom” as the main reason they watch. While this is not the “majority of fans” some have claimed during debates, it is indeed significant. Also of note is the gender and age breakdown for this preference: 42% of men and 45% of women named this the main reason they watch the show. Meanwhile, 42.5% of respondents 24 and under selected this option; 36.5% of those ages 25-35 chose it; and a whopping 50.4% of fans ages 36-70 marked Chuck and Sarah as their primary reason for watching the show.
That last number was interesting to me. Does it mean we get more romantically inclined as we get older? That would be cool!
