    So the new season is well underway..anyone finding any of the networks' new shows to be worthy of regular viewing? Are there any shows you wish they'd canned rather than bringing back for another season?

    I'm kinda diggin' Gray's Anatomy myself..I don't see how Martha Stewart is getting any viewers though, much less on two different shows; the woman is so friggin annoying.

    I've seen one episode each of My Name Is Earl, Everybody Hates Chris, and The Office. While I did like them, I haven't really made much of an effort to watch any on a regular basis. The only shows that I do put forth an effort for are Nip/Tuck, The Shield and Rescue Me.

    As you can see in my sig there's one show I am LOVING lately. I haven't been excited for a new comedy like this since Seinfeld. Awesome show (My Name is Earl).

    I also like the new one on Friday's "Ghost Whisperer".

    Jaxita catch me online when you're available I want to run something by you :) .

    As far as new shows, I like Bones, Prison Break, Killer Instinct, Supernatural (great 80's metal/rock soundtrack), The War At Home, & Surface.

    As far as returning shows, I like 24, American Dad, Family Guy, House, That 70's show, Stacked, & The Simpsons.

    I watched one episode of Ghost Whisperer and I felt like it gave me diabetes it was so light hearted and 'fluffy'. Did I watch a bad episode? The one I watched came off as dark as an episode of Little House On The Praire.

    I'm not into new shows. The only show I have been watching lately is Roseanne. I don't care what anyone says, that show is fucking funny.

    I don't watch much TV, because the shows always tend to suck. I recently found Becker though, that's a great show (or was... my lack of TV watching missed the entire regular-time and now it's just reruns). That's me in 25 years if I live that long.

    Seems like if I want to watch TV, my choices are either Reality Shows (puke) or law/medicine. Not a broad selection.

    Becker is a really funny show. I watched it every night when it came on at 6, but then they changed the time and only showed reruns.

    I heard it's not running anymore (as in making new episodes). I never even came across it until it was over and they were just showing reruns. I hope they make DVD's for it, it's better than any show I've seen in a long time. Family Guy is the only other show I actually try to watch.

    yes, becker is a great show. I watch mostly all older shows because the new ones are usually so stupid, but Becker reminds me of the older shows in a way. It comes on here at 12 pm and 11 pm. I don't really have time to watch either one of them. I was hoping there would be a dvd too. I have already seen all the episodes a million times, but I could watch them over and over again. Just like married with children, I could watch that show all day every day. The new shows are boring to me. All the reality shows are driving me crazy.

    There are four episodes a day here and every once in a while I'll catch one I haven't seen. The only thing I don't really like about it is Chris, I like Reggie a lot better. Chris just isn't that funny. Actually Bob could go too. He's more irritating than funny most of the time. Good acting, just a role that seems to conflict with the flow of the show. Still great though. Best show I've seen in probably 10 years. I don't watch much tv though so a good show could easily sneak past me.

    Bob can be funny at times, but he is pretty annoying. He is probably my least favorite character.

    Damn, I was bored so I googled around for Becker. It started in '98 and ended in '04 - 6 seasons, 130 episodes. Where the hell was I? It ran six years and I found it six months ago.

    There's a forum on the official webpage for the show and there's a ton of people screaming for a DVD set, so hopefully something will come of it. There are DVR's for sale on eBay from $40-$100 of all 130 episodes, but I wouldn't buy that bootlegged bullshit. I hope they make an official box set. I'm sure I haven't seen 130 different episodes.

    Yeah, my dad actually found it a couple years ago and got me into it. I can't believe I never saw it before then. I wish there were new episodes. Forget that ebay crap. If I'm going to pay a lot for all the episodes, I want the real thing. If I have to I'll just record all of them because that would suck if they didnt make a DVD and took it off the air as well. There seem to be a lot of people who have never even heard of Becker. I like everybody loves raymond too. It's pretty funny most of the time. I have been watching it a lot lately.
