Current TV shows of which you are a huge fan...

...but wonder if you are the only one....

A discussion about NBC's "Friday Night Lights" (Fridays, 8p central) set my mind to wonder about what other shows are on TV (or WERE on TV this season) that you watch, but wonder if you are the only one....

"Friday Night Lights" is definitely one of those for me. With Connie Britton (from ABC's "Spin City") and Kyle Chandler (from CBS' "Early Edition") and an amazing cast ... it is one of my favorites each week. And, while it is critically acclaimed, it doesn't have much of a fan base, claims NBC.

Others for me include...

ABC's "Pushing Daisies" (Wednesdays, 7p central)

ABC's "Samantha Who?" (I think this was originally Mondays, 8p or 8:30p central)

FOX's "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" (Thursdays, 7p central)

FOX's "Don't Forget The Lyrics!" (Thursdays, 8p central)

CBS's "NUMB3RS" (Fridays, 9p central)

Probably my favorite: Scrubs.

A few others: Futurama (CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEW ONES!) Metalocolypse and Kyle XY

BTW; has anyone watched the show "My Redneck Wedding" on CMT? I was flipping channels the other day and saw this train wreck and just couldn't look away. Seriously... If anyone wants to see some "interesting" people, check it out.

Law and Order reruns. I just can't get enough of them. I enjoy watching Law and Order more than most other shows-I'll even choose the reruns over an all new episode of any other show I like!

Not much of a TV watcher (in fact many of the one's you guys listed I've never heard of).

I do like the CSIs, Without A Trace, Cold Case and some others, but I don't watch anything regularly.

Lately I've been watching C-Span to see who, exactly, is screwing us over. :rolleyes:

Kind of liking Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

1. Battlestar Galactica (the new one, not the early '80s crap) - made in Canada!

2. Yeah, Scrubs for sure: highly addictive

3. Chronicles - looks promising

4. Journeyman: damned writer's strike, it was just starting to get good

5. Kyle XY - okay, only because Kyle is hot.

6. Smallville (see #5 and #1)

Okay, strike the last two. I only watch them when the BF isn't around. :lol:

BTW: get out and see Cloverfield. Best movie I've seen in a while.

My girlfriend loves Desperate Housewives and I will never understand why. I tried watching it with her twice and both times I gave up. Last time I made an effort was soem episode with a poorly CGed Tornado and special effects that would look bad in a Power Rangers episode. :P

Oh wait, I did actually make it through one episode, where some lady spread some dead lady's ashes in a baseball field and the family in a Nissan Quest were total pricks.

Hmmm...hadn't even heard of this one ... until now. That does sound like an interesting train wreck ... he heh.

Croc ... good to know I'm not alone with DH... he he. Though, sometimes, I'll watch Cold Case...love that one, too.

So ... of the shows you listed ... do you chatter about 'em with others during the week?

And, any particular reasons why the shows you listed are your favorites?

I was so happy when Futurama left adult swim for Comedy Central. First I got the "farewell to Futurama" marathon, immediately followed by the "yay, we got Futurama" marathon. ^_^

and Metalocalypse kicks ass. :metal:

Hmm....of the shows I listed before, I usually only talk about "Friday Night Lights" with others during the week ... and it is usually just about what happened the Friday night prior ... and what might happen. A few others, I wish I had others to talk with about 'em....

A few shows that I also watch that I didn't list originally are ABC's "Desperate Housewives", ABC's "Brothers and Sisters", ABC's "Boston Legal" and CBS's "Cold Case"....

As for why I watch....

ABC's "Pushing Daisies":

It's just quirky and works. I originally wanted to watch it because it was good to see Swoozie Kurtz back on TV, along with Chi McBride (principle on FOX's "Boston Public"). But, I watched the first 2 episodes and was hooked....

ABC's "Samantha Who?":

Jean Smart. She's been on CBS' "Designing Women" and, more recently, FOX's "24".

ABC's "Desperate Housewives":

Cool to see Felicity Huffman (ABC's "SportsNight") and Teri Hatcher (ABC's "Lois and Clark") in different roles. As for the storylines...well, might be a "guilty pleasure"...?

ABC's "Brothers and Sisters":

Interesting to see Calista Flockhart (FOX's "Ally McBeal") back on TV ... and with an interesting mix of cast members, including Sally Field (remember "Smokey and the Bandit"?) and Rob Lowe.

ABC's "Boston Legal":

I usually only watch the ending of this one with the 2 lawyers (portrayed by James Spader and William Shatner) talking in the evening. But, it's interesting to also see Candice Bergen (CBS's "Murphy Brown"), John Larroquette (NBC's "Night Court"), and others (i.e. guests Betty White, NBC's "Golden Girls", and Michael J Fox, NBC's "Family Ties" and ABC's "Spin City") in this one.

CBS's "NUMB3RS":

Simply an awesome cast around an awesome show format/plotline, especially solving crimes with math! Judd Hirsch and Peter MacNicol (formerly with FOX's "Ally McBeal" and, more recently, FOX's "24" ... during which time he was on a space shuttle mission on CBS's "NUMB3RS") are in this, too.

CBS's "Cold Case":

I just like seeing the flashbacks...and how the crimes are eventually solved....

FOX's "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?":

Shocking to find out what I remember...and, more so, what I don't.

FOX's "Don't Forget The Lyrics!":

The music ... plain and simple.

NBC's "Friday Night Lights":

Awesome cast. Love the theme music, too ... and, of course, the older cars!

Hmmm...BTW...anyone else watch ABC's "Eli Stone" Thursday night after "LOST"? Looks to be an interesting show, imho. I thought I recognized a couple of the ladies in it ... Natasha Henstridge (ABC's "Commander In Chief") and Loretta Devine (FOX's "Boston Public")....

Mythbusters is my No. 1

Followed by both of the Pinks shows (Pinks and Pinks All Out)- The only reason I pay extra for cable is to keep Speed

Well my midwinter dragracing fix is taken care of

I also like CSI, Without a Trace, and my wife has got me to watching Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International.

I would love to readjust my sleep schedule so I can check out some of the new Discovery Channel shows. Smash Lab looks very good. I liked the pilot episode when the tested RhinoLiner by blowing up the trucks.

Since I work nightshift I tend to get 2-3 hours of sleep after I get home and then a nap before going to work. Makes watching TV tough.

Most midday TV seems to be what I call "Loser TV", sorry just my opinion, so I don't watch it.

I tend to agree these days.

As a kid, I seem to recall a steady dose of game shows that were viewable. These days, it's all of these odd/weird/trashy talk shows that have topics like "I slept with my boyfriend's Dad and now I don't know who the father of my 2 year old daughter is". Aye.

I've seen a couple episodes of Without A Trace ... and have liked them. But, for whatever reason, just never got completely interested in it enough to make sure I watch it each week.....

And, KC ... I watched the first few weeks of episodes of Back To You ... but just lost interest in that one :(.

The Portuguese version of that was hilarious: they seemed to pick the most retarded people as contestants! :lol:

I like Babylon 5: seasons 1 through 4 are my favourites.

I don't watch much TV at all, in fact, recently I have only been watching Keeping Up Appearances, Saturday nights on PBS - "The BooKAAAY residence, lady of the house speaking..." :AH-HA_wink:

I've been watching clips from "The Wire" on Youtube since hearing an interview on NPR of the guy who plays Omar (sadly, I don't have HBO). Yesterday at lunch with the gang, my friend Ryan commented on how much he likes the show, and Omar. I think this is the last season. I wonder if I can rent DVDs of this show at Blockbuster.
