    Deal or No Deal. A game show that is so lame it doesn't even bother to have a theme.

    The view. And for sure, Lost.


    But Hell's kitchen? Imo that's significantly less stupid than most other shows you listed Cronxeh.

    I love Hell's Kitchen! Math Is Hard and I are anticipating Gordon will have a stroke.

    Has anyone seen Maury with Maury Povich? His show makes Jerry Springer look like an intellectual gathering.

    omg, It comes on after a show* I do watch and I can't watch more than 5 seconds of it.


    *my guilty secret: I watch court shows. Yes, the people are redneck deadbeats, I don't care about the people, I like the cases.

    You leave Gossip Girl alone!

    Monster Quest is the only one at the moment that really makes me angry

    Will and Grace.

    He's gay, so is the other, she's neurotic and she's a drunk. We get it. Those in themselves are not humour, so either include some jokes or drop the laugh track.

    I haven't ever watched a 'reality' show---they're for the brainless...

    I also can't believe how many 'after they're dead' shows are on now

    Haven't watched it in a long time but both Karen and Jack were good for a laugh.

    Yeah, they're all the rage.

    I am forced to watch Drop Dead Diva, but it is completely lame.

    Gee, a fat girl who can't resist junk food. How 21st century...

    At the risk of stating the obvious, you have watched enough of those shows to be able to pass judgment on them.

    Of most of the shows you mention, I have seen even less of them than you - so little that I cannot even judge them.

    I watched them because I keep my horizons open. Currently I only watch the following shows:

    NCIS, Family Guy, Simpsons, Twilight Zone, Burn Notice, Fringe, House, Psych, White Collar, Leverage, and News.

    "Lost" is just an absolute disaster of a show. The first season was really good, but it's unwatchable now.

    I don't know how many shows are stupid, because I can't stand to watch much of anything on network TV and therefor cannot judge their relative stupidness. I watch local and national news, News Hour, Antiques Road Show, and Nova. That's about it.

    About the only TV show I watched regularly was Babylon 5.

    Is "Babylon 5" still around? I last saw it several years ago, but then I haven't seen the Sci-Fi channel in a long, long time. I stopped looking when they started carrying a lot of grade B horror flicks (except for B. Gallactica).

    It's the SyFY channel now, apparently their viewer's didn't know what Sci-Fi meant or how to pronounce it.

    Surely, you jest!

    I wish. Well, the part about them changing to SyFy is true, I am just guessing at the reason. I can just see someone asking what the skeefee channel was.

    You can get the whole series on DVD, if you don't have a cable channel that carries it.
