Mine would have to be...

Arrested Developement
The Office (both)
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Law and Order SVU
Scrubs
Texas Rangers Baseball (not a TV show, but one of my favorite things to watch)
The Colbert Report
The Daily Show
West Wing
The Simpsons

I'm not a fan of southpark either, I don't think it's that funny.

There are SO many shows that we used to watch on BBC America that belong on this list... I haven't had any coffee yet, so I can't think of them all, but League of Gentlemen is absolutely on there. The British version of Coupling is insanely hilarious, it makes me cackle. And I'll give some love to South Park.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force is one of those shows that I've burned out on. I got hooked on the very first episode ("Take the meat bridge! Fine, don't take the meat bridge!"), but I couldn't imagine sitting in a movie theatre and watching it for ninety minutes. It works best when viewed at 1:30 in the morning, dead tired (or drunk, or I imagine stoned), and in very short doses.

Does this surprise anyone?

Monstar Garage (canceled)
American Chopper (dislike some of the family drama, love the technical aspects)
American Hot Rod (not a big fan of Mr. Coddington, but I do like what his shop manages despite him)

Also,

South Park
Penn & Teller's Bullsh!t (Showtime)
Good Eats

SWMBO watches Crossing Jordan, Medium, and the Ghost Whispereer...I find myself getting caught up in those as well.

SWMBO also has a habit of turning "The View" on in the morning. I HATE THAT SHOW! I don't even understand how she can listen to it, much less watch it. Rachael Ray falls into that category as well.

You know what I used to LOVE?

Junkyard Wars. I think there was an American version, but the British version that I remember was awesome. Some spiky-haired blond chick hosted it, cute as hell. That and Battlebots; SWMBO and I used to LOVE watching Battlebots on Comedy Central. We both get giddy when Grant from Mythbusters gets out his his 'bot. Pretty sure Adam and Jamie had a 'bot, too.

Oh, one I forgot - and I believe it starts TONIGHT!

Ultimate Fighter. If you like UFC at all, the show is basically a competition to see which guys win a contract with UFC. They used to do the lame reality show challenges, but now - it's all fighting and training.

Really cool show
