I'll check out Big Bang Theory since it's so popular here.

What we watch when we're too sleepy to read a book:

1) PBS - Masterpiece Theatre, Mystery, Call the Midwife
2) PBS - Nova, Nova Science Now, Nature
3) Mad Men
4) The Pitch - our DS is in advertising
5) Judge Judy - to remind us what stupidness is
6) Dog Whisperer
7) 60 Minutes selectively

PBS Newshour, PBS's BBC America news

Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.

So many of you listed Breaking Bad!

I missed it all these years but just started watching the series from the beginning on DVDs from the library. I've watched Seasons 1 and 2 and I'm waiting for Disc 1 of Season 3 to be returned to the library by someone else and then I'll take out all 4 discs of Season 3.

Highly addictive and very well done. But now if I see 2 lowlifes meeting at a convenience store I think I'm see drug deals. Scary stuff.

My son downloads British tv shows and then brings them over to our house and we've been watching the current season of Downton Abbey. It's worth the wait!

He also brings over British panel quiz shows like "8 out of 10 Cats", Mock The Week" and "Nevermind The Buzzcocks". Those all look alike to me so I've lost interest in those.

We all enjoyed "The Tube" (London subway documentary series) and "The Hour" (drama about a BBC news hour TV show in the 1950s). I don't know why he's fascinated by British TV but it's been a nice treat.

I also like some of the HGTV shows like "Property Brothers" and "Income Property". I've been enjoying "Dancing With The Stars", "The Middle" and "Modern Family". I can't wait for the next season of "Mad Men". I like a couple of the shows about stuff - "Antiques Roadshow", "Storage Wars", "American Pickers".

I'm still watching "Gold Rush" even though I get irritated by how completely stupid those people can be. Parker Schnabel is the smartest person on the show and he's only 18 years old.
Married, both 61. DH retired June, 2010. I have a pleasant little part time job.

I'm mostly into sports stuff, mainly the Golf Channel and College football. I don't watch a lot of network tv but when I do, 2 shows that come to mind are Blue Bloods and NCIS. On cable I like Pawn Stars, Pickers and a lot of reruns like MASH, Seinfield, Andy Griffith etc........

We had given up cable TV and mostly just streamed netflix and hulu plus but we had trouble getting WIFI reception on our TV in the bedroom so the streaming wasn't we signed up for a year of cable and are actually watching it more than I thought we would....

Anyway pretty much the only things I watch:

Grey's Anatomy
Private Practice (not for has been cancelled)

Guilty Pleasures

Chopped and the fix a restaurant show (forget what is called) on The Food Network.

I occasionally watch the Daily Show and Big Bang Theory.

What keeps me from watching the Big Bang Theory is that I want to watch all the prior episodes and I can't find any legal, free way to watch them...Not on Netflix or Hulu.

I keep thinking I will try Dexter sometimes.

Oh - we don't get HBO but I usually watch True Blood after the season is over once netflix has it. I like it but I like the book series way more.
