Turns out that “Bob’s Burgers” watchers earn considerably less than those who adore “Parks and Recreation.” And “60 Minutes” watchers earn more than Friday night “Dateline” aficionados.
Those are essentially the findings of TheWrap, a publication that crunched Nielsen numbers to find the link between income and preferred network TV show. Though the outcome of this analysis is not surprising, it certainly is interesting to figure out where your fav show rates.
People who watch “Criminal Minds,” “X-Factor,” “Bones,” and “Bob’s Burgers” have the lowest median income on TheWrap’s scale. Of the before-mentioned list, “Criminal Minds” watchers earn the most, at around $59,300. “Bob’s” watchers earn around $48,800.
On the higher end of the scale, “Modern Family” viewers in the 18-49 demographic earned around $81,100 while “Parks and Recreation” watchers earn around $81,000. “The Good Wife” didn’t skew too low, with a median viewer annual income of $72,900. “Glee” clocked in at $70,000.
Meanwhile, median income in the United States is around $51,017.
