I don't watch much TV actually. I only turn it on for the shows I know I like. Sorry.

I just realized they now show The Powerpuff Girls locally--can you believe San Francisco cable doesn't have Cartoon Network? Jeez Louise!--and I've been trying it out this week (two episodes). Cute and often funny, but astonishingly heavily padded to fill the slot.

Other than that, it's just Simpsons and KOTH (syndicated reruns only), South Park, the occasional crummy B-movie  love, and--when it airs--some little cartoon about the delivery boy in outer space.

If you count any of these embarrassing:

Hollyoaks
Neighbours
As If
The Wright Stuff
TOTP

Personally I don't think watching any of those shows is embarrassing, but some people do, which makes me watch them more.  big grin

If I watch it, I’m not ashamed to admit I watch it.
Thus, I cannot post them here, as this thread is only
For shows I’m ashamed to admit to.

But if you were to simply ask which shows I watch,
I would reply:
PowerPuff Girls
Hey Arnold!
Daria
Invader Zim
BattleBots
South Park
SpongeBob SquarePants (Rarely)
Angry Beavers (Rarely)
Boy Meets World (Rarely)
Pepper Ann (Rarely)
Home Movies
DBZ
Star Trek TOS, TNG, Enterprise
Lexx (Rarely)
Samurai Jack
Justice League (The New One)
Batman Beyond
The Twilight Zone (Oldies) (Rarely)
The Outer Limits (Rarely)
Futurama (Doi!)

I watched hours of Tom & Jerry, Loony Tunes and various other cartoons from that era - and am not in the slightest bit ashamed!

I also used to love Tiny Toons and Animaniacs and it's verious spins offs - but now I don't sit down to watch much TV apart from perhaps the News, then Have I Got News For You and of course Futurama (WHEN IT'S ON! - GGRRR)

There is something missing in that line, and it ain't V'Ger.

My list:

Star Trek TNG, DS9, TOS
Just Shoot Me
Drew Carey
South Park (If I remember, which means rarely)
Simpsons
Futurama  tongue
and a lot of more.

I wouldn't qualify any of those as shameful.

These two are borderlining though:

Star Trek V'Ger
Friends (So shot me  tongue)

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

Tom and Jerry rocks. Also if I'm up that late (so probably drunk) I watch stuff like The Magic Roundabout or Rainbow (reruns of shows like that are shown really late in England. I think TMR is shown from 2-5am every day on Cartoon Network, but I may be wrong).

Actually now I think about it, I used to watch Coronation Street. I never admitted that to anyone, but its become really poor now so I dont watch it any more. Honest.

I'm ashamed to say that I watch Neighbours, I never miss it. I've watched it ever since I can remember throughout growing up, all the way back in the late 80s. Other than that, erm, I like cartoons, when I'm bored I might put cartoon network on and watch Dexters Lab and some of the old classic Looney Toons smile

Yes, I admit it. I used to be a Dragonball nut. Somehow, watching people punch through rocks and talking about power levels for 30 minutes thrilled me.

I'm not embarrassed by any TV shows I watch. I like watching American sitcoms (except Friends) but you don't get many on terrestrial here (at a watchable hour). I used to love Norm (especially when Nikki Cox was on), but it's not on Channel 4 anymore.

I watch the kiddies programmes every morning. This includes The Smurfs. There is a scary porgramme on Channel 5 called "Roley Poly Olly" or something like that.

I'll admit that I really love I Love Lucy. And before you say "You got some 'splainin' to do!" it's a huge influence on so much comedy- especially The Simpsons!
But as far as really embarrassing TV, I gotta go with the dating shows. Like Blind Date and Dismissed. Utter crap. Every so often my roomie and I turn to each other and say, "Wanna drink something with a large amount of vodka in it and watch dating shows?" Yep, I do.

I liked the first couple seasons of Survivor.  And, utterly shamefull for me, I'm really liking Buffy lately (for people with long memories: I know, I know).  Actually i go out of my way to taunt Jeff about it

I watch 'Third Rock' from time to time. Well, that's all there is in Fox weekday afternoons! And oddly, Fox's after-school cartoon lineup has been replaced by Jerry Springer re-runs and Cops! It almost makes me wish Digimon was up...  big grin

I watch Voyager too.

For some bizarre reason I watched Sliders from beginning to end.  puke

I also sometimes watch the odd episode of Thomas the Tank Engine (the 80s, Ringo Starr narrated ones, not the crummy later episodes, and DEFINITELY not the film)

Sliders! How could I forget that one.  Shame on me. It started sucking really bad after only a few episodes.
