my family and i are avid viewers of "survivor" and "the amazing race". they're the only two shows that we either gather to watch together, or are sure to set the dvr to record so we can watch them the next morning (before school!
the rest of the time we battle for control of the remote. i have to say that my boy has gotten me to like the cartoons "regular show", "adventure time", "avatar, the last airbender", and kid shows like "icarly" and "big time rush".
i watch "the simpsons" with him, but i have to explain away some of the more mature jokes. i just started watching "beavis and butthead" again, but there's no way i'm going to let the little guy watch that, or "family guy".
on my own, i watch "gordon ramsay's f word" and "start trek: the next generation" on bbc america every morning when i get home. i also record "whale wars" and "swamp people" when they are in a new season.
