I watched part of the first season of The Walking Dead and just think that it's a good concept undone by mediocre acting and inconsistent writing.

A lot of the shows I particularly like aren't on at the moment though. My guess is justified comes back some time in the spring since that's when its been shown the last couple seasons. I think it's pretty great though.

LOVE American Horror Story. It just keeps getting better every week. Last week's episode (Halloween Part 1) was amazing, and I cannot wait to see the conclusion tomorrow.

I worry about it being a Ryan Murphy work as well, because he also did Nip/Tuck which was great for the first three seasons and then just trailed off into mixed up crap. He seems to have straightened Glee out so far for this 3rd season, so hopefully he's learned his lessons.

Catch up on SOA, soon. The last two episodes were insane, and apparently it's supposed to get even more intense in the last 5. I am loving this season.

As I've noted before, outside of hockey, and occasional other sports, I watch no TV, save for an episode or two of Jeopardy a week (and then, only during the fall/winter months when the nights get dark early).

I do watch the local news a couple mornings if I'm up before 5:00, but that's probably because I've known (casual acquaintance) one of the local anchors for ~15 years.

I was interested in Mad Men and Breaking Bad, but I dropped the extended cable and now have basic basic (4 major networks, WGN, PBS, a Mexican channel, two or three government / local / state access channels, C-span, a couple advertisers, and the Oprah network).

I never watched much, but I probably started giving it up when Stewie was born.

I don't miss TV at all. I do like South Park, though it's a bonus when I see an episode, because I've probably only seen a tenth of them.

New show? Person of Interest.
Haven't gotten around to PoI yet. Ben Linus intrigues me though.

I really like Person of Interest.

I watch that, Criminal Minds and I'm watching Rescue Me on Netflix.

Breaking Bad is next on my Netflix list but I'm still early on with Rescue Me.

funny thing is that #5 is just as shallow and misguided as 1 thru 4

When I watch TV, I like to turn my brain off now-a-days. Too much going on with job, business, etc. That said, I can't turn my brain off all the way, so I still can't enjoy most drama shows, among others.

My line up:
- House (losing interest lately)
- How I Met Your Mother
- Modern Family
- The League
- The Big Bang Theory
- 2 Broke Girls (started watching for my wife, stayed around because I have the hots for Max)
- Last Man Standing (still undecided)

Through the Wormhole is a REALLY great show but the season ended sometime ago.

The Walking Dead does not let go for a second, it is the best show I think I have ever seen in my life.

South Park still gives me a chuckle.

Hockey.

And that's about it.

I forgot about Modern Family. That show is hilarious, highly recommended. Probably our favorite comedy right now (though last week's South Park was amazing).

We're also watching Up All Night given the excellent timing of recent life events. It's OK, but would benefit from less of Maya Rudolph's not-so-interesting character and more plotlines revolving around parenting would be welcome.

We're all caught up with American Horror Story. That's one weird-ass show. I fear that it will suffer if it's supposed to be drawn out for numerous seasons, though. I THOUGHT I heard, however, that one season is supposed to be one story. That would be good.

How dare you call the housewives franchise shallow and misguided.

Really, they should rename the shows Broke B*tch Mountain, because I don't think any of these idiots has a pot to piss in when your compare their assets to their debts.

Then again, living beyond your means with no hope of repaying your debts is so quintessentially American; and Greek; and Italian; and Irish, etc.

"Game of Thrones" is simply epic television. Easily the best show extant.

No love for Terra Nova? I've said it before and I'll say it again- it has dinosaurs and time travel, I really don't care how bad it is or gets.
