Why not, right?

Personally, mine is "The Office", which has been going down in material this past season.

Probably Top Chef. Not sure why, I would hate to eat 75% of the stuff that they make on that show. I'm sort of a meat (medium well, thank you) and potatoes kind of guy. *shrugs*  :)

I practically never watch TV, because it's not something to which I'm accustomed. However, I've watched some youtube videos of Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Desperate Housewives, etc. and thought they were funny.

My favorite shows are NCIS; Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, and Iron Chef America (the last two are on the Food Network).  I watch the Food Network a lot since I love to cook.

Battlestar Galactica (2004 series), Caprica (so far, at least), Doctor Who (David Tennant years), Torchwood, Star Trek: Next Generation, X-files, Supernatural, Frasier, Big Bang Theory, ...

No particular order.

Currently making my way through "Weeds."  First three seasons were great, but the last two have been rather lacking.  Also, seen most (not all) of the episodes of Jersey Shore.  It is pure gold!

some of my other favorites:
*Seinfeld
*The Wonder Years
*The Office (only seen the U.S. version, would like to give the U.K. version a watch some time)
*It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
*Arrested Development
*Dalja's Spring (Korean show)
*Winter Sonata (Korean show)
*Autumn Tale (Korean show, by far the saddest show I have ever watched; only 16 episodes long but I shed a tear nearly every episode and was crying like a baby with the last three episodes).
*Navy SEALS (documentary, very interersting and very fun to watch)

LOL.  I have to endure all the cooking shows because my sons (especially the older) love them.

Otherwise, I waste, er, spend time when I can watching O'Reilley Factor, Glenn Beck, All in the Family, Frazier, Malcolm in the Middle, That 70's Show, and sometimes Arthur (brings me back to when my sons were young).

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yeah, I admit that I'm an Andy Griffith snob. I judge people by whether or not they like Andy Griffith. My wife used to tell me that she didn't like it, but then I'd always catch her laughing out loud whenever I was watching it. I would say, "I thought you didn't like this show."

One thing though, I only like the black and white versions. When Don Knotts left, the show was never the same. But I have seen every episode numerous times, and I still laugh just as hard. There were also some tear jerkers. Great stuff.

Invader Zim *favorite*

Ha, Invader Zim. I watched that show when I was younger and I really liked it. There are a bunch of old Nick shows that I watched when I was a kid and I would love to go back and watch some of them. I remember watching shows like Angry Beavers, Anamorphs, Cousin Skeeter, Hey Arnold, and the Wild Thornberrys were some of my favorites back then.

I've never seen any of the episodes without Don Knotts. How could they take Barney off the show? I'm sure after he left it was the last season since when most people thing the Andy Griffith Show, they think Barney Fife.

I like the Big Bang Theory and NCIS.  They're the only television shows that I actually look forward to watching and try not to miss.  Criminal Minds is also a favorite but not on the same level as the other two.  I do enjoy watching the Office, too, but usually go a few weeks before seeing it and then only on nbc.com, as I'm usually out on Thursday nights at band rehearsal.

I totally relate to watching Authur.  It is therapeutic for me to listen to Mr. Roger’s voice.  Since PBS cancelled his reruns, I have suffered.  Last summer I went to Idlewild Park with friends and when I rode Trolley through the Neighborhood of Make Believe, I cried.  My friends swear they’ll never take me again unless I’m sedated.  :laugh:
