Guilty Pleasure TV
So we've had the Favorite TV thread and there's obviously crossover but particularly in the offseason and summer I find myself watching more "basic" stuff OR stuff that doesn't require much attention. I'm sure I'm not the only one but I'll start:
Dateline/20/20/48Hrs: Almost never watch these live but there's usually a healthy offering on demand. Apparently the "true crime" demo is HUGE with housewives. Like Making A Murderer was big with a lot of people but there's like a whole subculture of suburban women who are into all the shows and podcasts and online forums. But I do enjoy a good two hour Dateline from time to time.
PBS/BritBroadCorp(don't get any ideas) stuff: I watch a lot of more dry/specific history docs but for just enjoyment I like a lot of the PBS?BBC stuff on PBS and Amazon. American Experience...Antiques Roadshow...English Docs..etc.
Top Chef/British Baking Show: I've long held that Top Chef is the only cooking comp show that means anything to the point of trying some past winners'/contestants' restaurants in Atlanta. I hate Bravo and I can't keep up with a weekly show but I'll catch up via on demand. I don't like baking shows and it's become very "basic" to like but BBS is a legit entertaining show with likeable people. Light watching with very light stakes..I'm actually not positive what the prize is.
Scripps Schlock: Here's where "crap" tv really lives up it its name: I'm a guy who likes food..eating and cooking. So I watch Food Network. Nothing inherently wrong with that. Chopped can be entertaining, as can some of the other stuff: you can ignore how formulaic and utterly same it all is the first 20 times you watch it. Then you realize that not only do they show the same shows in 8 hour blocks over and over but often the same episodes. Wait..I thought this was supposed to be about pleasure? Lol.
I'm single right now but anyone with a lady in their life probably knows Food Network's also Scripps-owned twin HGTV and the fact that apparently they share the same programming directors lol.
Law and Order used to be my goto guilty pleasure for literally decades but sadly it seems to have fallen by the wayside in syndication/online.
