I love a lot of shows, but some that top the list are, "Once Upon a Time," "The Mentalist," "Hawaii 5-0," "Warehouse 13," "Big Bang Theory," "Person of Interest," "Elementary," "Criminal Minds," and "Shark Tank." If I was only allowed to watch three shows, it would probably be "Once Upon a Time," "Warehouse 13," and "The Mentalist," but I like a wide variety of shows, including older shows. I like to work my way through seasons of shows on Netflix. I just started season 3 of "Ghost Whisperer."

Oh yes, I also LOVE cooking shows. We don't get the Food network anymore, but I watch cooking/food related shows whenever I can.

I used to enjoy those channels when they actually were science type channels. Seems like all you see anymore is mindless programs like Hillbilly Handfishin', American Hoggers, Swamp People, and Duck Dynasty... aka redneck reality. I really don't understand America's fascination with toothless philistines. I guess "stupid" sells more than science these days.

I like good Sci-Fi myself. "Fringe" was my absolute favorite until it ended recently. I also watch "Continuum", "Grimm", and "Revolution" - although they seem more comic-book like. I watch them but am not completely sucked in.

I also love most sports (except baseball), and cooking shows such as "America's Test Kitchen", "French Food at Home", and "Mind of a Chef".

Law and Order of any type, CSI, NCIS, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, Big Bang Theory, Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Star Trek (TOS & NG), Elementary, Any old movie, any new movie that I like (there's thousands...) I'm sure I missed most of what's on the SciFi Channel...Warehouse 13, Sanctuary...If I'm lucky these are not all on at the same time.

I hear ya Steve. That's why I'm always switching. I don't even like seeing the commercials when I'm watching something I like. Swamp People? Really? I need to see a program about a bunch of yahoos in skiffs? Gotta be a better, more humane way to harvest a gator IMO.
Although, in all fairness, from what I've seen flipping through the channels, Duck Dynasty is on Arts and Entertainment. Go figure. A&E? Kind of like how all of a sudden the Military Channel has been showing stuff about ancient Egypt. They are all owned by the same people so they must rotate their programming for some reason. Reinvent their channel

Yeah, what is up with that?
Why doesn't MTV still play music and put the crap on the MTV 2...3..4 or whatever? ESPN used to be sports. Now they show poker or some other programming and you have to flip to one of the others to watch SportsCenter. I could never understand this. Is the fascination of watching something "new" overwhelming that it is the same program on a different channel?

I am a huge Survivor fan so never miss that one. I also like American Idol. Started watching Cyndi Lauper-Still So Unusual and kind of like it. I watch all the cooking competitions except for Iron Chef. DH watches and I listen to CSI, Justified, O'Reilly Factor, Diggers, a couple of Gold Hunter shows and Dog Whisperer. Seems the tv is almost always on at our house !
