    Not reality, plain old TV shows that come in the shape of series and are on now, not having a break:wink:

    Moi:
    Desperate Housewives- I find these women fascinating! Loved them since episode 1!

    The good wife-love the cast, and love the plot...very familiar:wink:

    StarGate Universe-I`m a sucker for sci-fi, haven`t seen any shows from this franchise, but the critics say this one is worth watching, and I agree!:smile:
    V- I loved the original series, but these new one rock, great acting and I would say a very rich production too.

    I'm at an armageddon of sorts with television right now. I used to watch Desperate Hausfraus, House and Two And A Half Men regularly; I've just really lost interest in all of them. I'm looking forward to see what they do with the second season of Drop Dead Diva and I'm waiting with baited breath for the New Hawaii 5-0 series next fall.

    Not a big T.V. person. The only show i'm watching now is Nurse Jackie. It's in it's second season. Why? Edie Falco is a wonderful actress and Nurse Jackie is a great show. Here's the trailer for the second season. Jackie is a wonderful mess. Snakey love him some Nurse Jackie:biggrin1:

    Not really following anything. I have tv as background noise and news source really.

    (I do watch Friends repeats all the time and am thrilled about the new series showing here of The Big Bang Theory)

    Treme on HBO. I watch it to see how well they capture New Orleans after Katrina and they do a good job. Great cinematography.

    Smallville.

    I was a comic book junkie and I find this series' take on the Clark Kent/Superman mythos refreshingly well done especially since they've brought on other D.C. heroes and villians including Justice Society, Flash, Green Arrow, Black Canary, and J'onn J'onzz (Martian Manhunter), to name a few.

    Snakes, i loved the trailer!
    I`ll be hunting for Nurse Jackie links now!!!:biggrin1:

    That makes two of us. Alex O'Loughlin + Scott Caan + (hopefully) that amazing theme by The Ventures = I'm there!

    Love that show. I get to drool over the hottness of Peter Facinelli and Dominic Fumusa + marvel at the wonder that is Edie Falco.

    With Stargate Atlantis, Dollhouse, and Battlestar Galactica now gone, and Heroes a big ??, I'm left with the aforementioned Nurse Jackie +
    Fringe (will Peter forgive Walter? Will Phillip Broyles ever smile? Stay tuned).
    Smallville (intermittently, when I need a Justin Hartley fix)
    Doctor Who (loving Matt Smith)

    My top shows lately are Glee, V, Family Guy, and South Park. I'm also interested in going through Modern Family from the beginning when I get some time.

    I have gotten into 'Criminal Minds'...yes, it is dark but really fascinating. For brain candy, I get into 'American Dad' and Nick Swardson's 'Pretend Time' and of course, 'South Park'.

    I feel funny about this, but the program Im watching is actually a soap opere aka "novela" its called "Teresa" (YouTube - Teresa (Cuarto Promocional)) is basically about a poor girl with the intention of beign rich no matter what... :p

    & sometimes I watch "Family Guy" haha

    Season 7 of Desperate Housewives. That's the only thing I see. I like it, it's relaxing, the humor is good enough to give me an hour of tv without anything to worry about.
    And the characters of the women are fun.
