What are you watching on T.V. these days?
« on: February 08, 2012, 10:37:54 AM »
My favorite show right now is "Modern Family."  I also love "Bones" and "Glee."

Reruns of M*A*S*H and Monk are also always welcome.

And of course what we on this side of the pond call Brit-coms --- "Keeping Up Appearances," "The Vicar of Dibley," "Are You Being Served" (the original one) and "The Young Ones."  I have the "Monty Python's Flying Circus" boxed set and would love to see the original BBC productin of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" again.

Anybody watching The Voice on NBC?

I mainly turn on the TV for the noise factor (usually news, and when I do sit down to watch it, I'm like Joe, got to go with DVDs (have minimum cable reception).

I have a developmental disability when it comes to TV. I love TV but I am not very fond of a lot of the newer shows. Soooo, I tend to watch House Hunters and House Hunters International which I love. I like to look at other people's houses.

I also like the crime channels and watch Snapped, The First 48hours or whatever it is called. Also, the new crime channel that has unbelievable shows all day long on the weekends. Also, I love Everybody Loves Raymond".

I also watch a lot of the cable news shows, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, etc. I love "Flying Wild Alaska". Not fast paced, but the scenery is gorgeous. Irish ;D

We had just an antenna for many years and then went to Direct TV for 9 years and then had Dish for about 4 years. We have had the good fortune to have fiberoptic cable put in right past our house. We live in the country and there has been a push to install fiberoptic in the country all over the USA. It is in a small area North, South, East but not far West of us. I am really happy with it.

We didn't get it at first as it was spendy but then they offered a special for the TV, phone and computer and we couldn't pass it up. The priced was about 20 $ less than we had been paying for phone, dial up internet and TV plus we got price locked in for 5 years.

I don't believe in paying to watch T.V. and we only have whatever comes in on the antenna. 

But! When I go on business trips and get to stay in a hotel where there's cable, I really enjoy Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe.

Since every thing changed to HDTV we have not been able to receive TV over the air. I am trying to decide if we should have a special device to down load video over the internet. It would be nice to eliminate the satellite bill.

My husband and I just got thru watching the whole season of "Lost".
We were so hooked it was an obsession. We watched it thru netflex.
Our daughters and SIL kept telling us we needed to watch it. So we did and we loved it.
I like "Modern Family", another suggestion our kids talked us into.
American Idol and dancing with the stars.
I DVR Everything and watch at my convienence. Like Pierce Morgan, Ellen Degeneres, also.
Another thing our kids taught us, is to hook up thru a PS3 player, which enables watching netflex programming on TV. Our kids keep us up on all the culture stuff like that.

I enjoy watching reruns of programs from every decade. When the "Sing Off" is on, I enjoy that.

Like watching public television, the doctors, Dr. Oz, Jeopardy and Family Feud.
