Yes I am riding on Joe T's coat tails but I did not want to see Joe's Movie thread go off track.

I spend most of my TV time at The Discover Chanel, The History Chanel or PBS.

Not much of a sitcom fan.

My mindless TV entertainment would be Family Guy and the Simpson's.

Family Guy hits close to home as they 'live' in nearby RI and go to places I know.

As far as the 80s shows that Scott brought up I enjoyed "The Dukes of Hazard" and "Married with Children"

Thanks Bob!

I like to watch MSNBC and their programs such as Lockup.

When I was a kid I watched Kukla, Fran, and Ollie, I remember Mama, and Howdy Duty Time, Superman, Lone Ranger, and Flash Gordon.

I also enjoyed, Streets of LA, Dragnet, and most of the typical shows like Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle, Lucy, and I also enjoy the Animal Planet, especially when they have Gorillas on the show.

Does anyone know where I can find short video clips of funny stuff?

I show a few at my seminars and that really helps to keep everyone awake!

I already mentioned "Spenser for Hire" in the movie thread but I have some others. Cops is always good. History channel and Discovery chanel, as Bob mentioned, are can't miss when looking for something to watch. 24 is entertaining. And from the guilty pleasure confessional, I have not missed an episode of American Idol since the start of it's second season. Yeah thats right I said it.

WOW!

Very brave owning up to that.

Do you watch that right after "The View"

Alright seeing as you where strong enough to admit that, I will admit I used to watch "One Day At a Time".

One of my favorite shows from the 80's was Hardcastle and McCormick, nowdays I watch a lot of shows on A & E, American Justice, Cold Case Files, and City Confidential.

I am with Bob on this one. The Simpsons is hands down my favorite. I also like Seinfield a lot.

I also enjoy these channels and can always find something interesting on one of them. My wife also hates them, but she pays me back with the dreadful Lifetime and WE. I shudder just thinking about them.

Mine gets me back with MTV shows like Real World or Road Rules.

The last thing I want to watch is teenagers complaining how bad they got it.

Some But not all inclusive; Andy Griffith, The Real McCoys, Old Warner Brothers Cartoons, and The New Yankee Workshop.

Speaking of the latter, here are a couple past projects.





The sewing table was a gift for my daughter, the slant top desk was for my stuff.
