Television drama affects public opinion. " Holbrook and Hill didn?t start out to explore how crime dramas affected political views. They wanted to see how NBC?s political drama The West Wing, about a fictional president, affected attitudes towards the real president."... "But when they were analyzing the data, the researchers found something surprising: while only 11.5 percent of The West Wing viewers mentioned crime as the most important problem facing the nation, 27 percent of Third Watch viewers indicated so."
