In some of our local news research, we've recently been asking people what they thought about in their lives (beyond news). One of the highest scoring categories was “…a closer relationship with God.”
The finding, a little bit of a surprise, prompted questions about whether certain religious stories might stir up some ratings (realizing a Pew study from May showed people retreating from organized religion). Aftera all, cable and network programs have found success in this area, too.
