In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.
