We all have them.

I don't watch a lot of tv, and when I do it tends to be sports or shows on the cooking channel, or History or Discovery, the kind of "reality" shows about Swamp people, or ice truck drivers, or myth busters or extreme fisherman, or Sam Caliqione. And I like crime dramas of the NCIS and Criminal Minds variety.

I can't stand most reality "contest" shows like survivor or the great race or whatever it's called. But if it's a cooking contest show, like Hell's kitchen or when our fellow HBT-er was on Master Chef, I like those.

And shows about folks in Jersey or Housewives of whatever don't interest me either.

And I just wanna punch out a certain High School Choir.

And I'm not a fan of the 30 minute sitcom either...I was never even a big seinfeld, or cheers or friends fan either. I usually find the characters in those shows to be too annoying.

But I just realized that I've become hooked on the show "New Girl" starring Zooey Deschanel as this hot geekette living with a bunch of guys. It's pretty well written, the supporting cast is pretty funny, and Zooey is the hot nerd that never existed when I was a nerd in highschool....

But, you know, I'm a guy....I shouldn't be watching this...It's a chick show isn't it?

We all have shows like this, that we know it's "wrong" for whatever reason...it kinda goes against the rest of our viewing habits, it might even be one of the types of shows I mentioned earlier, "Housewives of Moderately Famous Athletes."

So what's yours?

New Girl is hilarious, along with Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, and I really enjoy the cooking shows (just not Cupcake Wars, Cake Boss, B*tchin' Kitchen Etc...)
I'm really looking forward to the finale of Next Iron Chef SUperChefs on Sunday!

Top Gear UK edition, my all time favorite and recently found Homeland to be quiet good.

Ho boy, all the HBTers in law enforcement will cringe at this, but on a Sunday afternoon when there's no football or baseball, I'm a sucker for shows like Cops or Worlds Wildest Police Chases, etc.

This show is hilarious! The production quality is extremely high.

I'm also a fan of No Reservations, Psych, 30 Rock and some old ones like Northern Exposure.

My two favorites are Flying Wild Alaska and Holmes Inspection (them Canadians sure build shady houses!)

Also enjoy Dexter and Homeland.

Castle is great. More lighthearted than most of the other whodunit shows.

I love Community. Never miss it, well I will be missing it as it's on hiatus, but the show is smart and funny, not in that it makes references to ill understood (or very well understood) natural phenomena, but in that it constantly reinvents it's format and not just it's plots into something in and of itself.

If you're not watching it you're missing out.

I also watch everything I can on Egypt. Not a fan of Zahi Hawass, don't get the abrasive nature and condescending attitude, but I still respect him for what he does and his extensive knowledge.

Info before personalty you know?
