A bit of a loaded question to be honest, virtually everyone uses their
favourite distribution rather than look for one specifically for running
MythTV. I personally use OpenSuSE and am very happy with it, then again,
that's because it's my distribution of choice and I've spent the time to
learn my way around things on it.

If you're not wanting to get too technical, then I'm guessing you'd be
best sticking with one of the Myth-specific distributions such as
Mythdora or Mythbuntu as they'll pamper you more than a general
distribution that you then decide to add MythTV to.
