what's everyone watching on TV these days

There are a few shows that most of us just have to watch every week, what are yours?

Right now I watch "CSI" (who doesnt), the original and NY are my faves.
I was also watching "Beauty and the Geek", just finished tonight, glad the stuck-up girl didnt win.
I occasionally watch "House" if I manage to catch it.
Any other crime or law type show that I come across, since we dont have a guide I just have to flip through the channels, and remembering the schedule is impossible for me.

I never got into the whole "Survivor" thing, I mean how many times are they going to leave people on an island. If they ever come up with one where they send the group to the North Pole or somewhere equally as challenging, I'm in. But then I guess you wouldnt be able to see the guys with no shirts on and girls in skimpy suits.

I'm a Thursday night girl... Grey's Anatomy, ER, Ugly Betty (that one I can miss without minding so much), Men in Trees... And on other days, the Amazing Race and The Class (the best new show IMO).

I watch Desperate Housewives, House, Grey's Anatomy, ER,
thinking about watching Survivor....will decide after this week.

I don't watch CSI during the season, I wait until the DVD comes out, and always get it as a gift, so I will watch them later.

I have also watched Smallville.

Wednesday night I watch "Bones" and "CSI NY". Thursday night is my favourite TV night - "Grey's Anatomy", "CSI", and "Men in Trees". I'm from tiny town Ontario, so I get a real kick out of "Men in Trees". It almost makes me homesick ... almost ...

"Law & Order, Criminal Intent" gets an honourable mention - I love Vincent D'Onofrio!

OK living out here in the "sticks" is not much fun for tv viewing, especally if you dont have a dish, so I am stuck with whatever is on.

OH how I wish we had satalite.

Re-runs stink.

I often watch "Ghost Whisperer" on Friday nights, as you can see my hubby has no say in what channel the tv is set at.

Sunday and/or Wednesday on Space or Sci-Fi - Battlestar Galactica. Amusingly, People Magazine this week, if you were to pick it up, would have the headline in its Picks & Pans section: "Why Women Shouldn't Be Afraid To Watch Battlestar Galactica." Just won a Peabody Award and named for the second year in a row to The American Film Institute's list of best shows on television.

This is a difficult show to just step into though . . . you almost have to go back to the original mini-series then seasons one and two to get the background. Middle of season three right now and just confirmed for a movie and season four a few days ago.

http://www.scifi.com/battlestar/

I'll watch the gory but ethereal Criminal Minds.

Maybe the original CSI but not the copycats.

Frontiers of Construction is a good show. Mind-boggling.

My husband likes all those shows on Discovery and Nat. Geo. like how things were made. He's fascinated by how they make oil drills in the ocean and naval ships and stuff like that.

I like the Sci-Fi channel. One of my all time favorite movies and TV series is Stargate and Stargate SG-1. I also dont' like the CSI knock offs. Give me the original.

My quick and dirty weekly list is: How It's Made, How do they do that, Myth Busters, Holmes on Homes, Dirty Jobs, House, Grey's anatomy, 24, Survivor (my wife watches, I make fun of the people on the show), Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, plus anything interesting that crops up on Discovery or OLN.

I think I watch too much TV!

I watch House, and CSI, but I often miss them 'cause I forget what day they are on. I watch nature shows if I catch them, The Food network if there's nothing on, or movies as a last resort.

Saw the workout one, but not the stripper pole one. Will definitely keep an eye out for that one.

No time for TV tho I hear it as I wander the halls, lol At home, it is background noise and then it is Newsworld and CNN. I DO however admit to an addiction to Survivor and occasionally, if I have time and am home in time, watch ER but it is not as good as it used to be so I can miss a few. Used to like Law & Order but have not watch dit for 2 yrs. (I have to listen to my bf, a lawyer) telling me how this and that are wrong and he ruins it for me. I never do that to him with medical shows, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

Let's see, so many to choose from

I'm addicted to House! I love Til Death and The War at Home. But my favorite comedy right now would be My Name is Earl.
