So, I just watched a fresh episode so I may be biased, but I'm gonna say that the show I most look forward to each week is Bones.

I also regularly watch House, New Amsterdam, and Smallville. If I'm home I watch Sunday prime time cartoons (Simpsons, Family Guy etc)

There are other shows I like but watch on DVD for whatever reason: Dexter, 30 Rock, Lost, Heroes.

What do you folks watch? Remember, this thread is for shows that are on now.

I agree with everyone of those that you posted except for Smallvile.

Dexter is awesome. The opening sequence is perfectly brilliant with all the blood splatter imagery.

Did anyone watch that new A&E show "Breaking Bad"? Its about a high school chemistry teacher who learns he only has a year to live, so he starts manufacturing Meth in order to raise money for his family. They only aired about 6 episodes and I'm not sure if they are planning on making more.


I'd say that "The Riches" is pretty much the best show on tv right now.

Ha ha I almost didn't mention it because I'm embarrassed at how bad it's become. I watch Smallville for really dumb reasons like hot actresses and thinking Superheroes are cool. The main reason tho, is that I have been watching it ever since day one, and once I follow a story for that long I'm just going to keep watching till it dies lol.

Sort of regularly watch Boston Legal and House. Watch less, but like Torchwood, Doctor Who, Numbers, Criminal Minds and Dexter. The sit -com I like is Two and a Half Men because of the good ensemble, especially Melanie Lynsky (Rose) [was in Heavenly Creatures] and Conchita Ferrell (Berta) . The Big Bang Theory has potential. (keep meaning to watch 30 Rock and have never heard of Bones) Watched all the previous Lost on DVD recently so am trying to watch this year.

Don't do it farf. Just wait for the last Lost DVD. Its cool when you just have a whole season to watch, but if you are trying to do the week to week thing, its fricking torture.

I'd say that 30 Rock has the best comedy of any show on tv now, perhaps with the exception of The Office.

I am also digging the Big Bang Theory. Its good to give nerds something to watch besides Battlestar Galactica and Dr Who.

OMG.. 2 points in a row by PG that I agree completely with. Hell might not have frozen over, but florida had record lows last night.

Actually, you two are frighteningly similar on many counts.

I'll go get the antifreeze.

What can I say?

I love Comedy Central and late-nite Cartoon Network.

I also enjoy sitcoms like 2.5 Men, Raymond, Friends (occasionally), Spin City, etc.

I am easily entertained.

I only decided to watch Life On Mars when the 2nd last episode aired. Damn that pissed me off, since it was such a great show & I'd only caught the last 2 episodes.

As fate would have it, I ended up at a friends place a week later & she brought up the show. I told her my dilemma & she pulled out a DVD of the 1st season & said "Here, you can loan this. I'll loan you the 2nd season when you've finished."

I have some very cool friends.

Enduring favorites: The Daily Show and the Colbert Report.

Torchwood. The Universe. Myth Busters.

Ghost Hunters

Can not believe I forgot to mention the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert, probably because I was just thinking of shows with plot lines. To them I am afraid I must add Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares

My cat is distainful of television, turns his back to it when it is on. Had an iguana that would watch anything with rapt attention, but what can you expect from an iguana.

Dear FSM! It was only 2 weeks ago that it had finished. Gimme some leeway!

It's probably still on somewhere else in the world.

Did you know that that is an anagram of Doctor Who? The two shows are linked together, and even combine on the one show occasionally.

Doctor Who. Another awesome show. It's a shame it moved to ABC2, as well as the Chaser's War on Everything.

Raymond ended in 2005, Friends in 2004, and Spin City... 2002. How much leeway do you need? :D
