if i can't watch an entire season of a show in one sitting, i don't consider it my favourite show. so here are my favourite shows:
torchwood (but i really hate miracle day...)
whose line is it anyway
nevermind the buzzcocks
shows i enjoy but don't watch often:
it's always sunny in philadelphia
glee (how embarrassing...'guilty pleasure' i guess)
graham norton (i used to watch it every week but i stopped when doctor who went on break this summer)
Big Bang Theory, mainly! My tattoo is actually partially a tribute to the show (I am that obsessed, though there is another meaning to the tat as well so it worked well on both levels). I think, though, I only watch the show for Sheldon, Raj, Penny and Amy (I can't stand Leonard and I'm neutral on all the other characters). :D
I watch Frasier reruns when I catch them, though. I like that the show manages to be both funny and intellectual at the same time!
I like to watch any of the discovery specials that focus on animals (though most of those are on Animal Planet now), weather, history (mainly myths and legends)...
And omg Destination Truth!! So much love! I am one of those wishy-washy types who believes in Bigfoot, Nessie, and all those other things (there are obviously a few exceptions that even I can't bring myself to believe :P), so it's perfect for me! Especially when they go to places that are supposedly haunted (like Aokigahara, that episode was freaky).
Forgive me here please, but I never watch TV now because I think its seriously crap. In the 90s we had programmes worth watching like The Crystasl Maze, Family Fortunes with Les Dennis, Strike it Rich with Michael Barrymore. We dont have the Saturday night shows nowadays like Noels House Party just lots of channels with constant repeats. Since Britain has switched over from 4 channels to digital TV is a complete waste of time.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Dr. Laura Berman Show
Keeping Up with the Kardashians (I think that's spelled wrong)
Ice Loves Coco
Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D - List
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
That's some of the stuff I like to watch, but if I were to list every show I liked the list would go on forever.
The Mighty Boosh
Dexter (not the animated one)
Star Trek (duh)
Aaand maybe True Blood occasionally. The amount of cheese in it kind of puts me off though.
I refuse to watch television, though, so if I want to watch any of the good shows I gotta buy them. P:
Sorry, if you have only the basic package for DirectTV your choices are SyFi, CNN, and MTV
The rest of the channels are dedicated to niche interests, replay the Shawshank Redemption / Matrix, are infomercials, shows that are about the making of a show, or are just bad programs that I can refuse to watch and instead walk away to the paradise of my internet to watch Earth: Final Conflict.
Really, I have the strong impression that television hit the junkpile somewhere in 2008. I think that the antichrist will not be a person, but a channel that has recovered from near cancellation that has returned with such compelling material that it swiftly inspires a golden age of competitive writing, content, and format.
Even the elect will praise the network and there will be a giant orgy of network on network action, commercial-lingus, and censor overload. Then everyone will die of satellite transmitted Aids.

Anything from the 90s. TV today is so crap I dont even bother watching it it. Its just all repeats of soap operas, reality TV programmes and other such bullshit.
The Crystal Maze
Noels House Party
The Krypton Factor
As opposed to the crap u get now:
Ghost hunters (See that, that right there? WTF there's nothing there u been drinking brake fluid or something)
Britains/Americas got talent (People who have no talent getting told on TV they have no talent and everyones like AWWWWWWW)
Jeremy Kyle (Ive got to admit chavs having a go at each other is funny, but I'm amazed the show has lasted THAT long)
Emmerdale/Corrie/Eastenders (Haven't we got enough problems in our own life without worrying about fictional characters?)
Trolling on the forums comes autonomously I am an evil sim, and I get a positive moodlet from it :D
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
The Cosby Show
Animal Cops- It seems odd but I find myself disgusted and fascinated by the terrible situations domestic pets are found in. I especially like watching for those happy moments when animals are adopted by responsible, caring owners.
I don't watch much tv anymore, but my current guilty pleasure is Pretty Little Liars. I read the series and I'm curious as to how the producers are changing the story.
Sons of Anarchy is my #1. Rest in top 10 are; Celebrity Deathmatch, Mythbusters, Family Guy, Bully Beatdown, Jackass, Benny Hill, Viva La Bam, Remaking of Vince Neil, High Chaparall (swedish show). Also used to watch a lot of WWE 3 years ago, but somehow I've lost the track on that show.
Currently airing/in-production favorites:
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
Completed/cancelled shows I enjoy:
Gargoyles; Band of Brothers (TV miniseries, I say it counts); Arrested Development; Twilight Zone (original series, not the remakes); Pushing Daisies; And I have fond memories of Invasion America (alien conspiracy!) and Big Guy & Rusty the Boy Robot (campy retro-futurism!)
Shows that used to make the cut as favorites but then totally blew it:
Rescue Me; House; Scrubs
