Started watching Hell on Wheels New Years Day. Recorded all the episodes.
Psych, White Collar, Leverage, Chopped, Iron Chef America, The Daily Show and Colbert, Burn Notice, Big Bang re-runs. My guilty pleasure is Storage Wars. It's like Antique Roadshow with cursing.
Warehouse 13 and Eureka. I'm going to miss Eureka. I'm about done with House, in my mind it has run its course. I like Terra Nova. It's no Firefly, but hopefully FOX won't ruin it.

I'm really excited for Alcatraz. I got to see the pilot a few months ago and I loved it. Apparently there has been some production issues, but I'm still hoping it catches on.
we're 2 episodes into the last season of "big love".
can't wait for season 2 of "downton abbey" to start sunday.
we just started getting "antenna TV" on one of our local stations, and it's carrying lots of old shows that i used to love. have watched some "that girl" and "the rockford files"

For example, the weekday prime time rotation is M*A*S*H, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Bob Newhart Show, That Girl, Cheers, The Odd Couple, and The Twilight Zone.
During other times, its The Rifleman, Kojak, The Big Valley, Bonanza, etc etc. If I'm bored, I can always flip over there and see something I like (more the 1/2 hr. comedies).
My top 5:
Sons Of Anarchy
Homeland / Last Man Standing

I'm also into the 3rd season of "Mad Men" and really enjoying it.

we get me-tv also...the comfort food television equivalent...give me some nice mac&cheese on an old tv tray, and i'm all set.
I enjoy the show, but I think that's part of the appeal in today's TV world. With more and more shows becoming "can't miss an episode" watching (ie anything AMC or HBO runs, lost, 24, "reality" TV.
Its never "must watch" tv, but if you're home on a monday night looking for something to watch, you know its fairly reliable for 30 minutes of cheap laughs. I think that type of situational comedy would suffer if you moved it too far away from its base. As they said in "the Wedding Singer" nobody wants to see a 30 year old Fonze hitting on young girls.
HBO on demand is now on episodes 5-8 of "The Wire" so I'm catching up and plan to watch the series thru. Great stuff so far, I can see why so many recommend it.
