The Simpsons (up until about season 9)
Get a Life
Six Feet Under

Scarily, it's mostly animations:

Super Milk Chan. Family Guy. Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Futurama (I don't make a special appointment). The Daily Show. MSNBC's Countdown (does the news count?).

Oh, and:

Project Runway. Sorry. It's kind of addictive.

Well, I rarely get time for TV because I have a ton of homework all the time, but when I do I usually watch Mythbusters.

In the next release of Mythbusters, they will probe that the myth of the round earth is not true.

Red Dwarf is by far the best contribution that TV has offered.  I have been accused of being Lister!

I can honestly say that I have never heard of any television show called "Red Dwarf".

I'm a TV junkie:

Lost, Veronica Mars, Beauty and the Geek (those three are on at the same time here.  How I wish I had TIVO), Mythbuster (the repeat later timeslot), and South Park on Wed., My Name is Earl and Smallville on Thur., Monk on Fri., Charmed, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy on Sun.

Sort of lost interest in watching Futurama on TV after my friend got the DVDs and we can watch whatever episode we felt like at anytime.  Still in withdrawl from Battlestar Galactica, StarGate: SG1 and -:Atlantis when SciFi went digital.

Yep, definitely a TV junkie.

You HAVE to download some man, it's the funniest show ever. It's finished now, but it's timeless humour. Unless, of course you've since discovered the world of Red Dwarf? :)

I love the books but I wasn't very impressed with the show.

Battlestar Galactica (the new one) and House are my favs, not counting animes.

EDIT: Oh, and Family Guy as well.

Oh yes, though House is quite formulaic, it is a good show.  I also like to watch Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis for escapism, though SG-1 has been canceled.  At least we'll get the end of the tenth season.  I also like Seinfeld and Yes, Dear.

The formula works, and its only the fact that they treat one case per episode that is formulaic, the cases are all very different and there is a progressing sub-plotline as well.
I hadn't heard about SG-1 being cancelled, but I have to say its time has come, it's just getting tired. How they're going to wrap up everything with the Ori in only a few more episodes, I don't know...

House is formulaic in the way the show progresses.  Let me show you using a demonstration someone else used on another forum:
"ooh no, this dude has some rare disease and no one knows what's wrong with him!"
"i'm dr. house and i don't care what anyone thinks."
"wow it looks like you cured him dr. house"
"ooh shit the patient is dieing again!"
"lets do something totally off the wall and not normally done in this situation regarding the patient"
"ok he's cured"
the end

As I said, I like the show a lot.

Anyway, they really can't wrap up the Ori storyline since this was the first season since the (I think) the fourth that they expected another season and now there is no other season.  They are hoping for maybe a TV movie or a miniseries.

I had heard about the TV movie. I don't understand why SciFi would cancel it if they still wanted to go, it's one of their most popular shows, and until BSG it was THE most popular show they had.

Yeah, I see what you're saying there, and it could probably get tired after another season or two. Still, it's great while it's fresh.

SciFi canceled SG-1.  The people who actually run it (MGM, the producers, etc.) want to continue it in some way, especially since the end of this season won't be a good end to the series.  SciFi has a contract that says that SG-1 can not be on any channel in USA other than SciFi, so it can't jump to another channel like it did when Showtime dropped it.
