Lie to Me
The Ghost Whisperer
Countdown with Keith Olbermann
The Rachel Maddow Show
These are show that I like and try to watch... have you any?
But My wife has got me hooked on "N.C.I.S" and I getting intereted in "Psych". Still like "Law ond Order"
Don't care for the "Reality" shows they remind me too much of Stephen Kings The Long Walk or The Running Man. (I enjoyed the books), but I find t.v. reality shows getting to close to life "imitating art".
My Kids gave me a years worth of NetFlix for Xmass so I'm now working my way through all my old favorites.
and all those great British shows ;
"Duchess of Duke Street'
"Prime Suspect' and so on.
I like science fiction, so Eureka, Fringe, Lost, Warehouse 13, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Primeval. Loved Battlestar Galactica.
Crime/suspense shows: love Burn Notice. Also Monk, In Plain Sight, original CSI, NCIS, Saving Grace.
HBO originals: True Blood, Hung, Big Love. Loved Rome and Deadwood and thought they ended too soon.
Plus Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Often, Graham Norton.
Every once in a while, I do leave the house . . .
I liked both of those...
I am not a big movie watcher...not usually.
Yesterday we watched KNOWING.. fantastic!
As Time Goes By
House (I don't like it as well with the new bunch)
an occasional NCIS
Coupling (on BBC on demand)
My wife got me the DVDs of the first season of my old favorite, Hill Street Blues, so I watch one of them occasionally.
An assortment of whatever science fiction is going
Project Runway, when available :-)
I watch NCIS, CSI Miami, Warehouse 13, and Eureka, burn Notice, In Plain Sight, and Psych.
I have DVD,s of Diagnoses Murder, Air Wolf, and Forever Knight.
And on BBC I like Midsommer's Murder, Robin Hood and Inspector Morse.
I watch more TV than I thought.
I watch a fair amount of sports in their various seasons (MLB, NFL, NCAA football & basketball, NASCAR & other motorsports)
Lots and lots of History Channel programs :-)
I recently saw a program on PBS (on NOVA, I think?) about music and the brain. I think it was called "The Musical Mind." It was one of the most fascinating programs I've ever seen on TV.
House, MD (although it is not what it used to be and Cuddy & 13 are going to make me stop watching)
The Big Bang Theory ( love Sheldon Cooper!)
Lie To Me
Bones (it is also losing something it used to have)
Also a fan of Countdown with Keith Olbermann & The Rachel Maddow Show, but I recently cut back to basic cable so I don't get them anymore. :(
I must admit, I never did like it as much as the books by Kathy Reichs, where the characters and setting are totally different. I guess I like the more "mature" version of Bones.
The History Detectives
reruns of Stargate and Stargate Atlantis
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
What Not to Wear
CSI (Las Vegas)
will rewatch and rewatch That 70's Show...it makes me laugh so much...except the last season which was very lame
The Office (my only nod to regular network TV)
Secrets of the Dead
There were 2 shows on PBS here recently, tymfos, one the NOVA program you mentioned (which I missed because our station is having problems broadcasting HD to oldtimers like me with an antenna and no cable), and another one called The Music Instinct, which was definitely fascinating. My son is a music teacher, and I almost popped for the $29.95 to buy a copy of the DVD for him!
And a show on the Discovery Channel called Overhaulin', in which older (60s, 70s, mostly) cars are "stolen" from their owners (usually with the help of a wife, brother, parent) and overhauled in one week. Some of the revamped cars are simply beautiful.
"So many books, so little time ... "
NCIS (another Ilya/Ducky fan)
new UK series of Merlin
Not a big fan of reality TV but as an old ballroom dancer I have to watch SYTYCD and Dancing With The Stars.
Then there's all those re-runs of Star Trek, Farscape and Firefly.....
One that I do watch regularly (also cited by cataylor >11 cataylor:) that keeps me in stitches is The Big Bang Theory.
Two other shows that I really enjoyed in the past was
The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne (I think they only made 19 shows)
and another limited series Young Indiana Jones.
Do any of you guys listen to podcasts?? I think they have displaced some of my TV watching time.
Countdown with Keith Olbermann
The Rachel Maddow Show
(I also watch several others to get different perspectives, but I find that these two tend to be less 'fabricated' and more attuned to the truthful facts that most.)
When it's a new episode:
(I seem to prefer multisyllabic news shows, and monosyllabic entertainment shows...)
MrsHouseLibrary refuses to miss:
Lie to Me
Some nights we have scheduling conflicts, even with the DVD-R.
So I'm a newbie to all but the basic 3 networks except for those shows that DD convinced me to get through Netflix.
Network TV shows I enjoy:
Biggest Loser (OK, even though its pretty unrealistic the way they lose weight it has inspired me to work on my own weight)
Dancing With the Stars--not devastated if I miss episodes
used to enjoy Survivor the first few seasons
Series on DVD
currently really enjoying Six Feet Under
currently watching old Twilight Zones and Dark Shadows--much easier to manage on week nights than longer shows or movies.
When I suddenly found myself living alone about eight years ago, I realized at least I no longer had to listen to the telly *all* the time, and made a decision not to watch it. At all.
I do still own one - I have a 'movie night' with friends now and then, or plug in something like Elizabeth R or Pride & Prejudice when I'm doing extensive hand-sewing; otherwise it sits under a handsome embroidered tablecloth.
I do get a lot more reading done. ;-)
What we do is buy old series and watch them commercial free - we just watched the last season of Stargate Atlantis.
We're thinking of getting Heroes for our next one.
I bought the first season of True Blood and hated it. Haven't figured out what to do with it yet.
Except for the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and some of my favorite movies, I could cheerfully get rid of all the TVs in the house. Yup. I'd even sacrifice Jeopardy and Antiques Roadshow. Now my husband is another matter. He watches lots of TV.
Brothers and Sisters
Law and Order
I have to say, I was glad to see people admitting to watching TV. I know it had to be true that folks were watching TV, but it seems in my circle, no one wants to admit it.
And speaking of British TV, I just got Place of Execution from Netflix, based on Val McDermid's book Place of Execution.
