Thats a good observation, I think its probably because the major networks have become overwhelmed with reality TV trash programming and half-assed sitcoms.

I dont know about you guys but I like to watch channels that I can walk away with some sort of interesting knowledge or fact feeling slightly educated, rather than a channel that makes me feel like more of an idiot every second its being watched....Thats how I feel about the ABC, NBC, CBS, MTV, Etc. networks.

The group of people that use this website aren't necessarily your typical Americans....we're do it yourselfers to the highest degree...part of what makes it fun is building your stuff, right. It's about the process and adventure in a way. I know that the unknown parts drive me to learn more.

The fact that we spend hours reading about proper brewing technique ranging from proper grain crush to yeast harvesting puts us on the, dare I say it, geeky side of the beer world to most out side of the brewing circle.

We probably aren't the sample group that the big networks are going for.

Science Channel and Discovery blend together with me. I watch them both, and since they're both Discovery the shows will cross a bit if you look in the time frame of a year. How It's Made, Miracle Planet, those are all pretty cool. Discovery Health is a great time waster with "True Stories of the ER" and "Mystery Diagnosis".

CBS: Numb3rs, CSI
Fox: House
NBC: Heroes, Law and Order
USA: The 4400

I've been getting into the History and Discovery channels more, too. Occasional game on ESPN or the SEC affiliate here.

I want to beat up every FoodTV host except for AB and Giada. Mmmmm....Giada.... If I saw Guy whatthefart'shisname on the street I wouldn't hesitate to tell him he's not 20 years old anymore and looks ridiculous.

All HBO and Showtime channels, about 10 HBO channels and 2-3 showtime channels, but only 1 of each in HD.

Put me down for that. I'd much rather watch something at least semi-eductional than crappy cliche comedy. Its either that or depressing/highly unlikely dramas. I rarely watch the majors unless its for sports...

Giada's head is like, freakishly large. You want a HOTTIE in the kitchen, you've got to find yourself some Nigella Lawson...



She's pushing 50, but for my money, she's the hottest woman on TV.

Nigella's slightly man-ish for me. At least Giada's got a rack big enough to match her head, mmmmm...

ESPN, NatGeo, History Channel. I like NatGeo a lot more than Discovery. Not as much programs but I barely go to discovery once I got NatGeo. Oh yea, Jenna TV too (jk I'm too cheap for that).
