How, exactly, did those Cable TV sleuths determine that the state of Maine is obsessed with Stranger Things? With a grain of salt. Like the site's previous study of states' favorite reality-TV shows, their research cross-checked IMDb's top 200 most popular TV shows with Google Trends data to determine the most popular programs per capita. Somehow, the massively popular Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead didn't make the cut, but shows sharing names with cities (Dexter, Nashville, Hannibal, Gotham, Quantico, SV) stand out, as do oddballs like Cold Feet and Tyrant. The majority of the picks are available on network TV or streaming on Netflix.
Whether or not you share your state's preferences, one thing is for sure: our country watches a hell of a lot of TV.
