Simple, I find them banal!

I prefer shows like the older Dr Who's, Red Dwarf, and so on.

None of the above.
My favorites on the basic cable channels are The Closer and Monk.
On the "deluxe" cable package most of my favorites are on BBC America.

Hey, we all have our tastes in programming. Just because I don't like the shows doesn't mean the shows are wrong for you to watch! It just means I don't happen to enjoy them.

2.5 Men. I like Scrubs as well but it's getting a little bit too KidTastic for my tastes. *sigh* McGinley (Dr. Cox) is probably responsible for that, but his character is pretty funny, admittedly.

Though I have to confess I do like the Dr. Who with David Tennent.

I miss Eccleston. Though there were a couple of really great episodes in the second season. And now that Rose is gone, there's a chance that Tennent's Doctor will be less, um, campy.

Lord, I am a nerd.

Yep, we need none of the above as a choice.

The best show on TV in this man's opinion is Boston Legal. Very clever stuff. Sometimes stupid but more often than not, clever. And leaning to the left I would say which is part of the appeal to me.

I've seen about five minutes of Scrubs--and laughed. I'd watch it if I happened to be near a tube and it was on. But I've never seen any of the others.

Me too. I liked Eccleston better. Billie Piper... I find her hot, in a sort of British way.

I will take Discovery Channel or The Learning Channel over any of those shows most times. Cannot say I have watched most of them.

I admit, I like American Idol...and I'm pretty good at pickin' 'em. Because of our schedules, it's one of the few shows my wife and I can both sit down and watch.

The only other show I've seen is 2 and a half men. I only get to see the last half. First season was funny...now it just seems old.

Geeze...I've only heard of two of them, and never "seen" any of them. How do I answer a poll like that.

Where's the "what are these stupid shows" option?
