Hm...I like ABC Family 'cos they've got "State of Grace" and "Totally Spies".  Nick's only good for HA!, Avril Lavigne concerts and sometimes Jimmy Neutron (I liked "When Pants Attack..." ).  I only watch Adult Swim on Cartoon Network.  And, uh...I tune into TRL everyday it's on.  Fox sucks, so I only watch Futurama.  Oh, and lately, I've been watching Noggin because they show Daria everyday.  Of course, they did completely cut a quite funny episode...  I guess I don't have a favorite channel.  I watch certain channels for certain shows, but I think I spend most of my time watching MTV and Noggin, simply because the programs there last an hour(Two eps of Daria.  Whoo!).

BBC2, out of British terrestrial TV, it's the best. With only about 1 min of ads between programs and reasonable shows (or great ones like 24) are on.

Has to be PCC.  It doesn't have the rights to Futurama, which is a big shame, because it treats it's programmes with a million times more respect than FOX, Sky-One or C4.  Listen to this:

1)Frasier, Cheers, MASH, Drop the Dead Donkey, MWC and Clive Anderson all on ONE CHANNEL!
2)Entire series shown in their proper order
3)Every programme shown uncut
4)Most programmes get shown twice a day (I know a lot of sattellite channels do this, but these shows are WORTH watching twice)
5)PCC Text, whose editor usually lets us talk about Futurama even though PCC doesn't show it.

Mmmm I'm not sure. I will have to go by what I watched last night:

BBC1 - Life of Grime. It's funny watching people at work - going down sewers etc.
BBC2 - The Simpsons, Malcolm in the Middle, The Kumars at No. 42. Good line up. I laughed.
ITV1 - Under The Knife. Mmm...plastic surgury.
Channel 4 - Six Feet Under. I cried. But I love this show.

Hmm... Tough choice.

ITV and BBC1 are terrible and never show anything worth watching, just the popular crap.

C5 has lots of porn but is actually surprisingly good at times.

C4 treats Futurama wth no respect, but has some good shows too.

BBC2 though is probably the best of the lot.

As for satellite. E4 is OK some of the time, Sky1 shows some good stuff but also lots of crap stuff. UK Gold aint bad but it doesn't always have interesting things on and shows too many repeats each day. Hard to choose.

Radio beats TV so much.

If I had to pick it would be cartoon network...but I don't like the new versions of Jonny Bravo and Dexter's lab (I liked the old voices, the thick lines and what not?). But it has and/or had great shows like Freakazoid!, and cartoon cartoon fridays is always fun...and I like the theme song. But the one thing that was really, and I mean really bad is Samurai Jack. Cartoon Network also is cool, for some reason in my opinion, is because they can fit it's two words equally in the logo because they have the same amount of letters. I don't why, but that get's it a little boost from me... smile

(Oh yeah, not to mention adult swim treats my insomnia that PEEL caused)

PCC - no... wait that's what my love said.. Pro 7 I think... (that's the one which shows Futurama in Germany) not that you'll know that... but would you enjoy to hear I like CNN 'cause it's the only english channel I watched?

Fox for Futurama (of course) and there are several comedies I did enjoy watching, That 70's show is one of them.

I also give kudos to Cartoon Network for re-running the classics, and also helping bring good anime more into the mainstream (take that, Kids WB!). The latter network seems to think: "Monster battles...card collecting...put it in!"  puke

Don't forget Seinfeld!

And Channel 4 has a great line of comedy this Friday... Peter Kay's Pheonix Nights (the repeat, but still worth watching), nobleandsilver and The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (Experience?)

Erm, S'Malo is good, but the Brtitish channels are best. MTV I love, and Channel 2 and 4 rock too.

Why FOX of course! FOX has quality programming that the whole family can enjoy. If you don't like FOX, than you're some pathetic moron who lives with their mom! Because FOX rocks!
...
And that's my impression of what I would say if FOX continued Futurama for 1500 years.

Tonight, I'll go with Channel 4, as Scrubs is on (and Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights, but I don't watch that much).

And for you men, Eurotrash is on after Scrubs. Enjoy.

I like that channel with a button of its own, a big red one, at the top of the remote. What is it called now.... OFF.
Television is the bane of humanity, but it is highly adictive. Must watch TV....

TV is a good thing if you don't feel like doing anything, but reading a book increases vocabulary and things you didn't know...that's why I do both at once. seriously

I just got this channel ,the Playboy Channel. It's so good. It's the best thing you could ever watch. One of my friends recommended it to me, and I'm so happy she did that.

I'm a big fan of Bravo!; they play a lot of movies.  But come to think of it, so does Showcase... and Space! The Imagination Station is pretty cool...  I'll have to think about this a little more.

CBC has some good shows, as does Showcase. The Comedy Network and Teletoon are good but only because of the shows they get from the States. The rerun station,... er... I mean TBS has a few good shows but they are mostly reruns. A bunch a channels I used to like (TNN/Spike, CBS) are crap now because of reality T.V.

Fuse. They play mainstream, but good music. And also good indy rock as well. They have awesope shows as well. And not all cable gets it. So that means less commercials and less people see it. Which is good.  smile

Also CN and...well, there are a few other channels that are okay.   smile

I don't watch as much TV as I used to though.

Comedy Central- The Daily Show, Reno 911, SNL reruns, South Park, some of their stand-up comedy is good, and I'm starting to like Tough Crowd.

Cartoon Network- Adult Swim, The Adventures of Billy & Mandy, etc.

G4- It's an all video game channel!

Starz- I got a whole library of movies put into my digital cable that I can view for free, just by subscribing to this channel.

Sci-fi- It has MST3K and it has tons of movies that are great to MSTify. Oh, and the reruns of Twilight Zone, Quantum Leap, and it use to show the original Star Trek, not so sure if it still does.
