    American Pickers
    American Restoration
    Counting Cars

    The only two I've seen are Pawn Stars and American Pickers. Some of the things the "old man" says on Pawn Stars cracks me up sometimes...."I never did understand horror movies. If you want horror in your life, have kids."

    That tv-show makes me laugh the whole time they broadcast it. So when it ends, I have no freaking idea what they said and were it was all about xD :hyper::p

    When I had cable, I liked the very beginning of seasons of America's Got Talent - you know, when all the weirdos, crackpots, and Dunning-Kruger affected people make fools of themselves. As the season moves along, though, they weed out all the good ones and the show spirals into a clone of American Idol and sucks.

    I'll sort-of watch the gold-mining and logging shows out of the corner of my eye when I'm at work, but I'm getting tired of the History Channel in general. I think Pawn Stars is badly scripted. Yes, it's scripted.

    I have a friend that believes some of the stuff on that show. I told him that when someone brings an antimatter gun or a piece of a stargate to the Pawn Stars guys for an appraisal, I'll believe in ancient aliens. :p

    Hoarders and Intervention are the only ones I always watch.

    If there is nothing better on I'll watch Pawn Stars, Sons of Guns, and when it was on...Mountain Men.

    History Channel, A&E, MTV, VH1, TLC, etc. all have horrible degenerative reality shows for the most part.

    I have watched a season of Ice Road Truckers; I liked it, but it gets redundant. Pawn Stars is over-saturated. American Pickers is cool but they make ridiculous plot lines these days. I tried to watch Storage Wars once - no comment. I do watch the aforementioned 3 on a very occasional basis.

    The best "reality" show I watch is the local news.

    +1 Also have close friends who believe in aliens. Those conversations are weird. I have found the quickest way to end those things are to nod your head and agree with them as much as possible. Arguing takes time.

    Now for my stupid TV shows:

    Small Town Security
    Intervention
    Addicted (It's like a low-budget Intervention and I know the host!)

    I've also been sucked into an episode or two of Jersey Shore or American Idol... but only a couple, I promise.

    Oh, and Mankind: The Story of All of Us is reality TV? What?

    It's okay, every single episode goes down the exact same way. "Is it possible that extraterrestrials were in contact with ancient humans and gave them the necessary information to do...? Ancient astronaut theorists believe so."

    I can't stand those BS "reality" shows like The Simple Idiot Life, or Keeping Up With The Idiot Kardashians, or Big Idiot Brother or Idiot Survivor... hate 'em.

    Bondi Rescue. It's about the beach in Australia. It provides a nice escape.
    An actual quote: "The water at Bondi is a bone-chilling 20 degrees."
    It would beat a documentary about Skegness.

    I wouldn't necessarily call either version of Top Gear a reality TV show....

    Well, some things might seem logical, but that's only 5 % of that show. The other 95 % is just rediclious.
