Are People Who Watch ‘Friends’ Smarter?
People always brag about being smarter than everyone if they happen to watch documentaries or other serious tv shows with topics that reflect deep storylines and world issues. But a recent survey has revealed that perhaps it is those who binge on sitcoms and funny shows may actually be more intelligent.
The survey was done to explore the connection between people’s intelligence and the tv shows they love to watch. The poll was done on university students in US and the results showed that most people with high SAT scores loved the tv show Friends.
Turns out, it wasn’t just Friends but other comedic shows that joined the list of shows watched by intelligent viewers such as The Simpsons and South Park. There were other shows on the list too like Sherlock, Top Gear and House of Cards.
However, people with less SAT scores said that they watched fan favorite shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Dexter, Arrested Development and Band of Brothers.
