What's your ten best guilty pleasure TV Faves? This doesn't have to be limited to current shows although undoubtably there's far more to choose from these days seems and somehow I feel less guilty about old guilty pleasures like MacGyver and Knight Rider nowadays.

I'll start it off with my own.

1) WWE Raw (actually all WWE and TNA shows): yeah these qualify for me now as guilty pleasures as I often find today's wrestling bland, vanilla and forgettable with too much focus on high spots and not enough on story yet I still watch. Every now and then there are exceptions though such as CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan...

2) Conspiracy Theory (with Jesse Ventura): most of this stuff seems completely out to lunch and a lot of it seems ludricrous yet I find this so entertaining I know I should be ashamed of myself.

3) The Nostradamus Effect: fun end of the world nonsense.

4) Coronation Street: perhaps the most entertaining soap opera there is but still a soap opera.

5) Days of Our Lives...ditto.

6) Wife Swap: Like watching a car crash sometimes yet fascinating on some levels although things get rather disturbing sometimes.

7) Family Feud: the sexual innuendo gameshow of all gameshows.

8) Thunder in Paradise: a dumb action show starring wrestlers and a high-powered boat yet I like it.

9) Baywatch: dumb but sometimes entertaining. Wrestlers popped up here too. Hmm a trend seems to be developing here.

10) Hoarding: Buried Alive: Hoarding shows can sometimes be like watching a garbage dump meaning it can be disgusting yet somehow I find the people involved fascinating.

So what's yours?

I almost hate to admit some of mine. Even though I'm a 210 lb red blooded, straight, 40 year old man, I watch some shows intended for 12 year old girls.

1. iCarly- Nick always made good kids shows and this is one of the best.
2. Victorious- See above.
3. One Tree Hill- I love pretty girls and teen drama. Out of all of them this is the best.
4. Pretty Little Liars- Great writing and acting. Reminds me of Veronica Mars, but more teen oriented.
5. Charmed- Supernatural hot girls, what's not to like.
6. WWE Raw- If you consider wrestling a guilty pleasure (I'm not ashamed to admit I watch it).
7. Gene Simmons Family Jewels- It's so fake (much like Gene himself), but having been a Kiss fan I'm always curious to see it.
8. How I Met Your Mother- It get's a lot of flak here, but I like it for some reason.
9. 1000 Ways to Die- No self respecting person should watch this, but I can't help it sometimes.
10. Criss Angel Mindfreak- A douche bag magician who dresses like an 80's rock star, It's like a train wreck I can't look away.

5.GHOST HUNTERS-A buch a guys with super powerful mics and night vision cameras recording moths and cat yowls.

I love watching Bob Ross paint....I find it both entertaining and relaxing. Smile

I also watch Dragonball Z Kai....I've often wondered why.



I'm also a sucker for most cooking shows...unless there is some chef yelling at someone. I like the cooking,not the verbal abuse. Yet I liked "Chef",a BBC comedy where he was pretty obnoxious.

The show where people are obsessed with eating weird stuff like dry wall, couch cushions, dryer sheets, dead people's ashes, and toilet paper.

Helpful Hint: Movie theaters are the best place to eat toilet paper.

Actually I've been known to watch that too Raffine. That and Freaky Eaters and stuff like Monster in Laws. I actually remembered a few others I catch myself watching or have in the past watched consistently. The dumb soap opera Passions which mixed in witchcraft and sorcery with the usual soap elements I found I couldn't miss whenever I could catch it despite the bad acting involved. I also like The Young and the Restless a bit too but mainly for Eric Braeden. Sometimes I'll catch myself watching a makeover show called Style By Jury and a show about people fighting to get out of debt called Til Debt Do Us Part. With cartoons, I often find myself tuning into 6teen and I absolutely loved an often offensive style toon called Undergrads. I also could not resist watching a show about young Canadian girls growing up called Ready or Not, not the fare one expects from a grown man, just because it was well done and seemed true to life.

Yeah, I have a weakness for the more bizarre reality shows, too. I can't watch the more mainstream ones like Survivor and any of the singing and dancing ones, but have a gang looking for bigfoot or vampire's ghosts, or with a house full of Annie memorabilia and Pekingese droppings, and I'm there.

10.) Power Rangers Samurai. Grew up watching the different incarnations of Power Rangers.
9.) Robot Chicken- Many seem to detest this, but I love it.
8.) Days of Our Lives- grew up watching this despite the odd storylines.
7.) iCarly- this show is hilarious.
6.) Dawson's Creek- I hang my head in shame.
5.) Party of Five- Yeah.
4.) WWE Raw- at one point, it was acceptable. Now, it's a kid-friendly PG show.
3.) Intervention- a documentary style show exploiting the lives of people with alcohol and drug issues, leading up to an intervention and paid-in-full rehab.
2.) Parking Wars- people getting parking violations and having to deal with the cops and DMV.
1.) America's Got Talent- a trainwreck of a show highlighting "talents" of people.

Just tonight, I watched Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files and Whale Wars...both of which I find entertaining even though Paul Watson is pretty widely hated in my home province for being against the seal hunt. Got to give the show some credit for not really fully taking sides.

I don't like guilty pleasures. If I enjoy something, I feel no guilt for it, no matter what it is.

 How do you like the addition of Howard Stern as a judge?  He's actually nicer than I was expecting him to be.


I like watching Bob Ross too, but I don't feel guilty about that.  He's much too soothing!

Howard Stern is the reason I watched this season.

I'd watched it before, but wasn't gonna this year as that format only goes so far. Then I heard Stern was on.

Stern's done a great job so far, and has the chance of garnering new fans who never liked him before, as he came off a monster years ago.

Retro, personally I wouldn't feel quilty about most of the stuff on your list. I did feel guilty at one point or another for liking the following though (not so much now as compared to a lot of today's programming, this stuff seems like gold nowadays)...Knight Rider, The A-Team, Battlestar Galactica (the original), MacGyver, Airwolf, Miami Vice, Sweating Bullets, Dallas, Falcon Crest and Moonlighting.
