so it would be hard to choose a fav. LOL I've been watching CBS soaps for 35+ years. At night I watch HGTV, Off the Map, CSI, Desparate Housewives, Bros & Sis, The Bachelor/ette, Castle, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, etc - way too much DVRing.

is my current favorite. I'm not a huge fan of today's TV. Really don't care for what is called "reality" TV. I love "Antiques Roadshow", though I have none. One of my all-time favorites was "MASH".

- Dancing with the Stars
- Glee
- So You Think You Can Dance

Especially since my diagnosis and treatment -- I find myself only wanting to watch happy shows that make me smile and tap my toes and hum along. I just can't watch anything too sad or gritty or intense anymore.

Besides these, I'm a big, huge, PBS wonk -- everything I know I learned on Sesame Street while gumming my pacifier, and now I never miss Antiques Roadshow, Marsha!

Y and R (for at least 30 years!!)
Criminal minds
CSI
Bones
Missing
NCIS
NCIS Los Angeles
House
Vampire Diaries

Wow...I watch a lot of tv...thankfully it only takes 40 minutes to watch each since I fast forward through the commercials...I almost never watch it in real time...I hate the commercials. LOL

I love every incarnation of Law and Order, I loved ( until it ended ) Medium, I love Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck, but my favoritie right now, bar none, is Harry's Law with Kathy Bates...love her, love her, love her! And my political leanings are very left~ just like the character Kathy plays...I see myself in her.

Oh yeah...Rachel Maddow and in 6 months, Keith Olberman will be back~ and I love them too!

Ok, I admit it, I'm an American Idol junkie lol. I can't help it, I love that show. I also like the food network. I love down home with the neely's and Paula Deen. I can't eat too many of her recipes though, I'd be as big as my house :)

Weird, huh?

NCIS is one of my favs. I love all the Law and Orders, every variation. And one of my new favs is Harry's Law. She is such a great actrsss. I also like the Closer. And I enjoy Survivor, heaven knows why. I saw lots of others that I like that many of you mentioned but these are my fav. Oh, The Mentalist and Castle are both great.

Hi Victoria,

It's not weird, I get it! TV's not that great these days, I'd rather read or be outside.

I forgot to mention basketball~ and of course, my Yankees when baseball season starts! Reggie and I will be at the Clippers/Suns game~ look for me waving at you, ok? LOL The Tribe is going on a "Field Trip" to the game...I can't wait!
And oh yeah..Sunday Morning just isn't Sunday morning without Sunday Morning~ Love that show!

I have never watched American Idol, Survivor, Race, any of any disfunctional family sagas, DWTS, So You Think You Can Dance, etc etc etc~ none of them. Not even once. So I can't say if I would like them or not~ I am simply not interested and don't care !Which is odd, because I danced as a teenager, entered and won over 30 contests and I will sing karaoke in a heartbeat! My grandmother was a dancer by profession, my brother is a musician who lives in France...one would think the talent shows would not just call my name, but be yelling at me! But no...not at all! And Reggie would rather have a root canal than watch, so there you have it! LOL

Baseball....HUGE Yankees fan....watch the games every night....during ALCS 2009 playoffs friends got tix to game 6 and I was invited but couldn't go because my mom was very sick at the time. We watched it together and although I wasn't there in person it was special because she LOVES them and afterwards she said, "Now the World Series".

Is "who do you think you are?" where they take a celebrity and discover their past relatives. Digging into their history is so fascinating to see unfold as they go on their journey to find people and historical documents~ so so very good.
Also, I am totally addicted to the reality trash "the real housewives of"...all the cities represented! I am fascinated with lifestyles, fashion, bling....such a material girl! And the cat fights!

I really like Who Do You Think You Are? too.

IMO, NBC got the idea from several PBS series which preceded it: African American Lives and African American Lives 2 (where they traced the genealogy of folks like Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg, Maya Angelou, and Tina Turner), and Faces of America (where they included celebrities from many backgrounds, such as Meryl Streep, Eva Longoria and Kristi Yamaguchi).

The PBS series are all out on DVD -- if you haven't seen them, I think you'd really enjoy renting them.

I hate to admit this because it is downright embarrassing, but I am addicted to Judge Judy. I tivo her and watch every episode. I know all of her sayings, "How can you tell when a teenager is lying? Their lips are moving." and "You have 2 ears and 1 mouth for a reason." and "If it doesn't make sense, it's not the truth." I am a sick person and need JJ rehab. ;-). When we visited NYC last year, Danny didn't tell me until we left that they have a 24/7 JJ channel. He was afraid I wouldn't have left my hotel room--so unfair!

Other than JJ, I like House, The Big Bang Theory, I Shouldn't Be Alive (really Danny's favorite but I watch with him and have begun to enjoy watching what amazingly stupid things testosterone can make one do ;-) and old movies.

Susie, you never answer your own question. Consequently, we don't get a glimpse of you and what you like.

!. Sunday Morning - Absolutely fantastic! Learn a lot and it is so enjoyable to watch!
2. Wheel of Fortune - Watch it almost every night
3. Dancing With The Stars - (I grew up dancing. In fact, I was named after my father's favorite dancing partner. My mother was not a jealous woman!)
4. Castle
5 House
6. Hot in Cleveland (or is it Hot in Cincinnati - i am not able to double check at the moment. Senior moment just hit me.)

Hugs,
Janelle

I don't watch too much TV, but do enjoy "Mad Men" and "Modern Family". Like some of you on here, I have been really enjoying "Who Do You Think You Are?" - I am really into genealogy and would rather spend time doing that than watching TV. Linda
