Guilty pleasures on TV

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Alex, Feb 5, 2006.


  1. Do you have any guilty pleasures on TV? Personally, I watch the OC and Desperate Housewives. I live with 5 women and we have 1 TV. I really had no choice. Now they go me into it. :rollno: :D

    Any of you guys watch "unmanly" TV shows?

    do tell

    As am I. Is than an unmanly show? I didn't think so.

    I like House...not particularly un-manly, but I feel quasi-guilty as it is the only thing on tv I habitually watch.

    I watched that show once and liked it. I don't think it's "unmanly" or anything. :eyebrow:

    I think anything on E!ntertainment qualifies as unmanly IMO.

    Me too, I'll never miss an episode.

    I'm also a law and order fanatic, and a huge discovery channel fanatic, and anything in HD.

    As far as real guilty pleasures I sometimes catch myself stopping on the TechTV channel (or whatever it is now)

    My favorite shows are Lost and 24, because they are good TV. I wouldn't consider them a "guilty pleasure". On the other hand I enjoy the OC and I must admit that for a 48 year old guy, Rachel Bilson is the definition of a guilty pleasure!
