Survey: 'Desperate Housewives' may be out of touch

UPI News Service, 03/13/2005 

The highly rated U.S. ABC television show, "Desperate Housewives" may be out of touch with America, a survey suggests.

The survey, sponsored by Dreyer's Slow Churned Ice Cream, found only 6 percent of Americans report living in a neighborhood inhabited by "desperate housewives," while 26 percent believe their community is more like the Lynbrook, N.Y., Long Island, neighborhood featured on "Everybody Loves Raymond" on CBS.

When it comes to neighbors, the survey found most Americans don't care for having a notable public figure or Hollywood celebrity living nearby. Less then 10 percent said they wouldn't dare stop by New York's Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's home in Chappaqua, N.Y., for a cup of sugar -- and that's without having to go through the security of the Secret Service.

Some 13 percent said they would ask Martha Stewart to borrow a cup of sugar, while 14 percent would ask Jennifer Aniston, 7 percent would ask Brad Pitt, but only 4 percent would ask Donald Trump.

However, almost a third of all Americans would approach syndicated talk-show host Oprah Winfrey to borrow sugar.
