    Confession time! Does your DVR start smoking from all the shows you are watching? 

    Here's what I watch (regularly or try to)


    1. Grimm
    2. Elementary
    3. Beauty & the Beast   alas, too many things to try to watch on the DVR...I was just so-so on this.
    4. Arrow
    5. Emily Owens MD
    6. Flipping Out
    7. Big Bang Theory
    8. Taboo
    9. Revolution
    10. Last Resort--it's been cancelled, noooooooo :( My DH loves this!
    11. Chicago Fire
    12. Long Island Medium
    13. Glee
    14. Smash (when it returns)
    15. Mockingbird Lane (just taped it haven't watched yet)   I tried. Really. Then I deleted lol
    16. American Horror Story OMGOMGOMG DD and I are freaking out watching this!!!
    17. Halloween Wars (food network)
    18. The New Normal
    19. Go On
    20. House MD reruns/marathons on CLOO/Oxygen
    21. Catfish--loved the movie, the show is VERY interesting (and I've had online friendships that have turned out bizarrely bad!!)
    22. Pawn Stars (my kids couldn't believe I loved this lol I don't watch it all the time but it's awesome).
    I also watch The Little Couple, Glee Project, Bitchin Kitchen, Our America with Lisa Ling, Kathy (Kathy Griffin's talk show), Interior Therapy w/ Jeff Lewis, Breaking Pointe.

    WHEW. Yes I grew very fond of a lot of new fall TV shows! Esp Arrow, Emily Owens MD, Go On, New Normal, Revolution, Last Resort, Chicago Fire.

    As to the question of HOW I watch so many shows....being ill/disabled, you watch a lot of TV. Plus I DVR almost everything and will watch a marathon of shows (like 2-3 eps of American Horror Story at once). No commercials rocks ;) And I'm almost caught up on Grimm--which is going on "Winter Hiatus" for a bit.

    Am I the only one who still remembers the "good old days" of a season of shows then reruns? I hate these "mini-seasons" esp. for my dramas. I like them more like American Horror Story where you get the entire season, EVEN if it's another year before the next season.

    So fess up! What do YOU watch :)

    I love Grimm! I watch True Blood, Spartacus, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Ncis, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Being Human, Top Gear, and Face Off. Needless to say I have to cram all of my TV watching in after the kids go to bed.

    I don't get to watch many shows regularly. We're in Australia, and Americas ratings really effect what we get on our screens. If there's a super popular show in the US, they might 'fast track' it over here. Like, show it within a few days. But not too many.

    Every week, we watch Supernatural, The Walking Dead (we have to download), Raising Hope and The Big Bang Theory.

    We've just watched all of Once Upon a Time season 1 to catch up before Season 2 starts tonight. Grimm is going to start showing in a week or 2 (Season 1, not sure where the US is up to).

    We like The Middle, and True Blood. They showed most of season 1 of American Horror Story, but I missed most of it. Not sure if they plan on showing season 2.

    I love Warehouse 13, Drop Dead Diva and the Vampire Diaries. They're a bit corny but I still watch em lol I have to download them though and I'm not really comfortable with it so I'm way behind.

    We seem to like shows that no one else does, so they often get cancelled. Like, Heroes, the 4400, FlashForward etc 

    Anyway, enough tv talk lol I have a few Aussie shows I like but I doubt anyone's heard of them, so I left them out :P

    Elementary ,Arrow, Revolution, Big Bang ,Top Gear , Hammonds Crash Course , Warehouse 13,Dr Who !
    Is Chiago Fire a series and this might be a DUHH question but what is it about. Is about the Chiago Fire or just fire stations in Chiago ?
    I liked Heroes ! " Save the Cheerleader !" and " I did it !!!" LOST was good too.
    Today I wayched " The Dust Bowl " Ken Burns well part of it, lol not ALL of it. And a show on Benjamin Franklin. I don't know what I will watch tonight.

    I won't list them all, but DH made me count on Sunday. My fall show line up is up to 33.... in my defense, I watch almost all of them on hulu which means waaaay less time wasted on commercials... but I know it's still really bad. I am a work at home mommy who hates silence. Half of those shows are probably only half watched... I am a media junky.
    @deviantqueen, @theheadacheslayer, Grimm is my favorite show!!

    Walking Dead
    Modern Family
    American Horror Story
    Pillars of the earth/world without end

    I LOVE Jeopardy but can never remember to watch it.

    DH likes Sons of Anarchy, Survivor, Doomsday Preppers, and Revolution.

    We both like Suburgatory and The B in Apt 23, but the first list are the ones we actually try to remember are on. We NEVER miss a Walking Dead!

    DH is always complaining about the amount of Tv I watch. He'll find something he wants to watch and won't be able to finish it because the DVR os working overtime.
    I watch all the Housewives (except Atlanta), Castle, Sister Wives, Parenthood, Private Practice, Grey's, Suburgatory, Up All Night, Teen Mom, and most recently Chicago Fire.
    I guess I do watch a lot of tv...

    I don't get a chance to watch too many shows :( 

    We DVR The Walking Dead and The Talking Dead afterwards. We watch The Walking Dead when it comes on - but we have it DVR'ed JUST. IN. CASE. 

    We watch 666 Park Avenue on OnDemand but just heard last week that it is getting cancelled which is a HUGE bummer.

    I usually watch tv shows on netflix or amazon and just watch them ALL AT ONCE up to the most current season, and then watch the current season when I can catch it on Hulu or something. I did that with Alias, The L Word, Parenthood, Charmed......

    And I loooove Fringe...I am so bummed that they are ending it.

    1. Grimm - can't miss it!  
    2. Arrow - surprisingly good. I thought it would be just another CW pretty boy show.
    3. Castle - I like the cast (especially Nathan Fillion)
    4. Bones - I like the found family feel. I do skip episodes, though. 
    5. Elementary - procedural mash-up of Monk and House. I probably won't stick with it.
    6. How I Met Your Mother - I like the cast. So funny to watch NPH as Barney. 
    7. TBBT - still funny. I've skipped episodes.
    8. The Vampire Diaries - all about Ian Somerhalder and Delena.
    9. True Blood - vampire porn. I'm wondering if I'm all done with the show, though. I'm consistently disappointed with it since season 3. But, oh, the eye candy!
    10. Doctor Who - can't miss it!
    11. Downton Abbey - can't miss it! Favorite soap. 
    12. Copper - surprising, disturbing, interesting.

    There are other shows I want to catch up on, but they're not a priority:
    Raising Hope
    Mad Men
    Arrested Development
    And one show I'm waiting to see where they're going with it:
    Saving Hope - dropped by NBC or CBS, but I heard picked up by CTV.

    I was watching Once Upon a Time until last week. I hit play, went to the kitchen to get a cup of tea, and forgot I'd turned it on. When I wandered back into the room it was almost over and I realized, I must not care that much if I forgot about it so easily. I was watching it for Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold). I might catch up on it when the whole series is over and on Netflix. Maybe.

    My DVR records:
    MTV's The Challenge (Real world/road rules show)
    Restaurant Impossible
    Long Island Medium
    Days of our Lives (but I just pick one per week to watch.. it's mind numbing to watch it daily)

    Project Runway (when it's on)
    Gallery Girls (season ended a while ago)

    I only have time to watch 1-2 shows a week, so there's always a ton in my DVR.

    I'm such a loser lol. I'd rather read a book than watch tv. I have no shows I can't miss. I do enjoy these sometimes though:

    How I Met Your Mother
    Pawn Stars here and there
    Family Guy
    Cleveland Show
    Love It Or List It

    We have Netflix so if something catches my eye, I'll watch it. I don't get much tv time just for me though with little people during the day and I'm an old lady and I go to bed early lol

    Wow ... Haven't heard of most of those ... Sux, tv in NZ is so crap. US ratings play a large part in whether we get them or not, and only having about 5 standard channels, can't fit many shows. Used to DVD many, but it has stopped working! Watch lots on demand and have just recently learned about some streaming websites so I can watch stuff we don't get.

    I do like
    Grey's anatomy
    Private practice
    Body of proof
    Hell's Kitchen
    Harry's law
    Flipping out

    Many shows are stopped mid season and there is no notification of when they restart so episodes are missed. Or they are moved to 11pm time slots and it's weeks before you notice. Sux, sux, sux.
