My wife finally got me to cave and we got a dish installed a few weeks ago. Now I can join in the survivor conversations around the water cooler.

Think The Wire in post Katrina New Orleans. First season was really good, but ends with a huge bummer. Didn't watch Season 2.

I never thought about Leno & Letterman/Ferguson/Conan fans being divided across party lines. Makes sense though.

Every time I flip past that show, there is absolutely nothing happening. It's always two people talking about minutia, and maybe one of them is holding a trumpet.

Smiley: dubious I don't watch any of those regularly.

****, the only thing I watch on a regular basis - i.e. a few times a week - is cooking shows when I'm at the gym, and I'm still upset that Food Network swapped out Five Ingredient Fix with Ten Dollar Dinner at the 2:30 PM EST slot. Yes, cheap food is good and all, but I miss my Claire Robinson time. She was my waifu. Smiley: frown

I watch glee... but only so I have more context for the autostraddle.com recaps which are the best part of the show.

Lol! No. I tend to watch scifi (or syfy?) shows mostly. My current lineup is stuff like Sanctuary, Fringe, Warehouse13, Eureka, Haven, Terra Nova, Falling Skies, etc. I do watch CSI (the original one), and I've started watching Person of Interest lately (it's interesting, but not sure how long it'll last). That's plenty of hours of TV each week, but none of them are on the list. Oh. And for my one reality TV splurge, I still watch Survivor. Mostly because some friends of mine are into it, and we like to talk about what's going on with each season. I also catch the serial based cable stuff like Sparticus and Game of Thrones.


I watch tons of stuff (more than I should some weeks), but nothing on any of those lists.

This is why I don't watch much tv beyond wheel of fortune because my wife loves it, and the local news. Everything I watch is usually off netflix and it's usually a documentary on ancient egypt or aliens. Sometimes both.

Man, Wheel of Fortune is such a lame show. The contestants are freakin' morons. Jeopardy is much better.

My fave this season was Hope Solo. That girl was built! But half the time her costume covered her abs. Smiley: disappointed

Being a smug, superior hipster I don't own a TV.

I just watch the shows that catch my eye on Hulu and Netflix. Smiley: laugh

That skews my results, but of the shows on both lists I've seen... some episodes of 30 Rock, and a few clips from the Daily Show.

Yeah, we'll need to see pics of you in skinny jeans drinking PBR or else you can't make that claim. ;)

Ok. My first thought was "What the **** is PBR?". After several minutes of free-associative thinking, I'm left with the somewhat bizarre conclusion that you meant "Pabst Blue Ribbon". Is that correct? And what the **** does that have to do with hipsters? Smiley: confused

I figure WoF ranks in the Republican list because everyone watching it is old and has been watching Pat Sajak and Vanna White since God damned Plymouth Rock.

Speaking of, I still remember that terrible, terrible made-for-TV movie from the mid 1980s with Vanna White as Aphrodite.

Same reason they think it's ironically hip to wear bowling shirts or mechanics' shirts (even better if it has someone else's name on the patch)

Although I read somewhere once upon a time that PBR's inroads with the hipster crowd was fairly carefully planned and marketed. Sort of like idiots deciding that Grey Goose was a premium vodka.
