How cool for you, Queen! I am very excited for you and although I do not watch tv, I will happily go somewhere and watch whatever show you are on, and root for you!
I used to watch the X-Files a long time ago, but nothing since then.
I can't wait to hear your good news! Yay!

Queeneey - your tastes are very similar to my own. I watched so many sitcoms in my HS years that I never want to watch them now. I only watch documentaries and reality TV:

Amazing Race - #1, although they need to vary the game a bit. It needs some refreshing by shaking up the format. But a great show. It's the least backstabbing reality show IMHO; the game is won by racing skills rather than by who you can lie to.

Survivor - Coming up fast. Last 2 seasons were excellent. I've only watched for a few seasons.

Fear Factor - I used to treadmill to this. Lighthearted pulpy entertainment, lots of girls with surgical enhancement.

America's Next Top Model - would be better without Tyra. The Australian version is much better but you need to get it off the web.

Project Runway - Interesting show.

Queeneey - let's hope it's what I think it is! You will tell us which one you are, right?

Amazing Race is a Sunday night show.
Which might or might not be relevant.

The reality of TV is that there might be 900 channels, but there's nothing to watch.

Queeneev, fun thread: I find that even after retirement (almost 5 months now) I still need what you call “mindless drivel after a day of hard work, much like I need a Hostess Snowball every once in awhile to appease my food soul.”

I like two or three from your list: “American Idol,” and “Antiques Roadshow," in particular. I’ll add one that both SO and I enjoy, “Wife Swap” although we dislike the format of people criticizing other people’s lifestyles. We fall right into the networks plot and watch “Super Nanny” right after “Wife Swap.” Those nannies are very wise women!

OTOH, thank god, these shows are heavily edited. They are great for “talking over” without fear of losing the thread of the presentation, so to speak.

One of the few things I missed when switching from expanded to basic cable was the HGTV channel, another was “South Park.” Confession: I’m just starting season two of “The Sopranos” on DVD. Interesting that back in 1999 when it started I missed some of the nuances of popular expressions like “bada bing!”

Hey, Queeneev. It is Sunday night. When are you going to post? I hope that it is before 8:00, because my computer is in the room where my baby granddaughter is sleeping tonight and she goes to bed at 8:00. Please don't make me have to use the laptop. I don't like using laptops. I know, I know, I need to get with the times. I have the most difficult time trying to get a laptop to do what I want it to do.

I fear that the reality show police have her for posting that she was going to tell us on Sunday! I saw advertisements for new Survivor show and Amazing Race in 02/09. I hope that everything is going okay for you, Queeneev.

Hmm maybe we were thinking about the wrong type of reality shows. Maybe it was Cheaters (a must see to broaden your view of life) or Cops (can't post because is in jail).

Yeah, I wonder what are the top ten reasons members don't post for a day or so.

1) they were caught on "Cheaters";
2) they were caught on "Cops";
3) they are on their way to Hollywood on "American Idol";
4) boss restricted internet use;
5) spouse or SO restricted internet use;
6)

6. Watching 6 month old Granddaughter

I have not heard of a show called Cheaters.

I hope that everything is okay with Queeneev. I heard that Columbus was supposed to get 8 inches of snow. Hope there was not an accident.

Hmm, there was a network reality show on last night called "True Beauty" where the young hot contestants were paired with "senior citizens" up to 101 years old. Queeneev, was that you?

Dreamer, if you haven't seen Cheaters I suggest you take 5 minutes out of your life to watch, because until I did I was clueless as to the existence of such people. I watched it once, and in that episode the host of the show (not sure it should actually be given that status) was stabbed by the Cheater. I can never work out where they get these people from.

Another few possibilities I have come up with are the following:

1. Rock of Love Bus with Brett Michaels
2. Bad Girls
3. Bridezilla
4. Charm School

It never ceases to amaze me what people will do for their 15 minutes of fame. However, before anyone gets too concerned about my viewing habits you should know I learnt of the existence of these shows by watching The Soup.

I wouldn't even know when or where to watch it, but I don't like to watch violence, so probably not for me!

Dreamer, it's possible that you are warmer than you think. I'm not a big tv fan but I do understand that reality contestants are pretty strictly held to a secrecy agreement until after a show airs. Could she have crossed a line with her posts?
