Have you ever avoided taking someone out on a date because you didn't like their tv taste? Apparently many people now view the shows that someone watches as an extremely important characteristic when seeking a significant other. According to a recent study, around 30% of millenials will not date someone if they have different tv preferences.

For a unique promotion for new original web series titled "Glued," Propeller Insights and Xfinity surveyed 1,935 adults ages 25-49 concerning their interactions over television.
