We have a movie thread, a beer thread, a book thread, and a music thread; so i was wondering about the idiot box. What are you ladies watching now that Lost and BattleStar Galactica are off the air?

currently I am watching Animal Hoarders, and Hoarders: Buried alive. its funny to see people lose it.

Im waiting for The Event on NBC.

what else is good on TV?

swamp people on the history channel. nothing is better than watching a bunch of red necks gator hunting. I thought Adam Sandlers accent from Waterboy was exaggerated...... until I had to read the subtitles on this show.

I was just thinking yesterday that we needed a general TV thread. Great minds...

Watch Always Sunny. El Dude introduced me to this show. It's freaking hilarious.

Waiting anxiously for the next season of Dexter. Dark but funny. They do a good job of building suspense. Last season John Lithgow was absolutely brilliant in the main antagonist role. He was scary to watch at times.

Caught the premier episode of Nikita. Maggie Q. Wow! Scantily clad in many scenes, AND she kills people. It looks like it could be a fun show to at least DVR and watch later.

A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.

Top shows I enjoy watching right now:
Mad Men
Delocated (no need to watch from the beginning a show you can just jump on, I highly recommend it. its on adult swim)
Always Sunny in Philadelphia (charlie what LARS becomes on game days)
Parks and Recreation (well written and the characters are better than the office)
Community (they won me over with their terminator/action movie and goodfellas spoofs)
Louie (why everyone in LARS isn't watching this is beyond me)
Anthony Bourdain
Friday Night Lights (great fucking show)
The Daily Show (Jon Stewart for President!)

how is this show? i see plenty of ads but have never seen it.

I think it is hilarious.
It is sort of a dirty Seinfeld, with a cast of idiots.
It is weird at first but if you watch a couple episodes, it kicks ass.

I stumbled on it whole drunk in a hotel room and thought I imagined the whole thing the next day. Never seen it at home at any rate.

The Closer (guilty pleasure), but the season just ended.

I enjoy Lie to Me, although a little stale as of late.

Weeds has sucked this season. I'm ready for Californication to start again..

I don't watch too many series regularly. I'm more of a 'DVR stuff on History or Nat Geo' type (Speaking of which, anyone see the 'Albino Murders' on Explorer? WTF?).

I like to stuff my face while watching Man vs Food.

I watch Weeds, Californication, and Whale Wars with the missus.

I watch Tosh.0 when I want her to leave the room.

I watch the Mighty Boosh and Primeval (BBC, Land of the Lost meets X-Files) with Samo.

I watch Bored to Death and Louie while they're asleep.

And Justified is my guilty pleasure. Come on, it's like a live action comic book. Smart-ass gunslinging marshal gets transferred back to his hometown and has to deal with the hicks he grew up with? Awesome.
