According to Bourdieu (1984) people with a lot of cultural capital have a lifestyle that expresses their taste for complex cultural products. In contrast, people with less cultural capital show a taste for less complex cultural products. Against this, Peterson and Simkus (1992) argue and show that people with a lot of cultural capital appropriate a taste for a wide range of musical genres, including complex and less complex genres. Thus, Peterson and Simkus coin the concept of the cultural omnivore. In our research we find that as to television viewing, Peterson and Simkus’ concept of cultural omnivorousness does not apply.
