Are you a "super liberal" or  "ultra conservative" -- and if so, do you watch shows like  "Watch what Happens" or "Antiques Roadshow?"  An idle and perhaps irrelevant question, but undeniably interesting, and read on to find out exactly what the color of your TV rainbow is.

Experian Simmons, a major market research firm, has put together what it says are TV show preferences based on one's political leanings. The list is a bit predictable -- of course Democrats love "The Daily Show!" Duh! But that doesn't make it any less fun.

Did you know for example that "on the fence liberals" -- whatever they are exactly -- love "The Graham Norton Show" above all??! And what the heck is a "green traditionalist" and why is he'she into "Lizard Lick Towing?" And what's with "Kathie Lee and Hoda?" Why do "ultra conservatives" love them so much?

So, let's go to the list, shall we?
