I carried out a primary research for my chosen show. I asked 14 people questions about the show and they gave me quantitative and qualitative answer. I asked 5 questions, gender, age, if they liked the show, rating the show, which character was their favourite. I asked males and females the questions, 57% where males and 42% where females. I asked people from the age range of 16 to 20+. From the range of ages, 50% where 16, 42% where 17, 7% where 18 and 0% for 19 and 20+. I asked the 14 people if they liked my show, it was a yes or no answer. 78% said yes and 14% said no. I then asked them to give me a rating for my show. 7% rated it 1, 3 and 6. 28% rated it 7,9. And 21% rated it 10. I then asked the 14 people what their favourite characters where. The choices I had was; Stan, Francine, Hailey, Steve, Roger, Klaus.
