VOTE! What are you watching?

Just for curiosity's sake, I was wondering which shows the good people of the BBS are watching, or not watching, as the case may be.

The poll consists of 50 shows that are airing--some are off for the season, some are ending soon and some have just started. Yes, I'm sure I left off someone's favorite show but I can't include EVERY show out there, but I tried to come up with a good selection. Feel free to post whatever others you watch regularly that did not make the list.

So, which shows, if any, do you watch on a regular basis?

Re: VOTE! What are you watching?

I went with what I'm currently watchin' or tryin' to catch up on via on demand, netflix or some other method.

This reminds me I'm behind on a couple of shows that I really liked at the time I was watchin' 'em...

Re: VOTE! What are you watching?

From your list, I regularly watch (in preference order, favorites at the top):
  • Once Upon a Time
  • Big Bang Theory
  • Modern Family
  • Bones
  • The Walking Dead (love/hate relationship with this one)
  • The Following
  • American Horror Story (loved first season, hated and didn't finish second season, so whether I continue depends on the new story)

Others I watch that weren't on the list include:
  • Elementary (one of my new favorites!!)
  • Revenge
  • Survivor
  • Big Brother
  • Amazing Race
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • Project Runway
  • Top Chef
  • Beyond Scared Straight
  • Mythbusters
  • The Biggest Loser
  • Intervention
  • Shark Tank
  • The Voice
  • Degrassi: TNG

Shows I watched that very recently ended:
  • Touch
  • The Office
  • Fringe
  • Go On
  • The New Normal
  • 1600 Penn

Shows I tried out but gave up on:
  • Person of Interest (too episodic, though I've heard that's improved)
  • Revolution
  • Grimm
  • Bates Motel (I watched the whole first season but won't be back for a second)

As you can see my tastes vary quite a bit, from dark dramas on cable, to fluffy teen soap operas, to competition shows, to sitcoms. I like a little bit of everything.

Re: VOTE! What are you watching?

I find I'm narrowing my range of what I watch. I've stopped watching competition shows, dropped soap-style programs for the most part and don't care for most comedies any more. I still watch a lot of shows but my focus seems to be narrowing a bit.

I'm watching some shows now and then, but not as many as I used to though. And I miss being able to watch Game of Thrones... dang it .

Wow. This poll is making me realize that I watch far too much TV! I clicked a lot of the shows listed...but I also watch several others.

Must go outside more...

Been outside a lot recently so mostly just Once Upon A Time, Big Bang Theory and Pretty Little Liars. There's quite a lot of excitement in all these shows combined.

So, Big Bang Theory and Walking Dead are the most popular of the lot, eh?

I would've thought the SyFy shows would have done better than they are, but then again, SyFy seems to dropping shows left and right anyway.
