The Walking Dead, Grey's Anatomy, Two and a Half Men, Arrested Development

FOX/ABC/AMC/Warner Bros.

Maybe the next time Congress is at an impasse, Democrats and Republicans can reach across the aisle to discuss the latest episode of The Walking Dead.

A new Facebook study looking at members who support Democrats and Republicans found that the AMC hit zombie drama is one of a few TV shows that everybody can agree on across party lines. Facebook Data Science looked at the TV pages "Liked" by users who "Liked" campaign pages of any Democrat or Republican running for governor, U.S. Senate or U.S. House of Representatives.

"The most balanced shows are the ones that fill TV networks' prime-time lineups while news commentary shows have more partisan popularity," Facebook said.

The shows that had a more balanced sampling of Dems and Republicans include Two and a Half Men, Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, American Idol, SportsCenter, The Voice and House.

To know one's surprise, Duck Dynasty's Facebook audience skews more Republican and The Daily Show and The Colbert Report audiences are basically all Democrats. Other Democratic-skewing shows include Hardball With Chris Matthews, The Rachel Maddow Show, Democracy Now! (surprise) and ones that were slightly more often Democrats include The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Arrested Development and even The Big Bang Theory. Republican audiences were more often found liking The Kelly File, Judge Jeanine Pirro, NCIS, Fox and Friends and The Bible Series.
