Shows I like....

Sooo... I decided to write about something a little different. Just stuff ;o) Today, it's TV shows I looove! Here we go...

SURVIVOR - Easy, Jeff Probst is the host of all hosts - can you imagine ANYONE else in his place - ahhh no! However, I will say that my interest in this show depends entirely on the cast & over the years there have been better seasons than others. For the upcoming season I'm hoping to see Boston Rob mess with Russell - but really.. who doesn't miss Coach? I can't be the only one... loved to hate that guy!

THE BACHELOR - or Bachelorette depending on the season. It's my guilty pleasure. I look forward to Monday's whenever it's on - sad but true. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart so it's fun to get sucked into those 'created moments' and fascinating date excursions.. but I also love to witness the drama. I'm a fan of http://www.realitysteve.com/ who gives us the REALITY behind this show in the snarkiest and most awesome of ways - and even when I know the ending (thanks Steve!) I want to watch the mental shakedowns that take place while getting down to the final rose/proposal/walk-away.. what have you... Clearly, I'm not alone - The Bachelor has been around for a long time. The only reason to go on this show is as a gateway to SOME semblance of fame - those going on to find TRUE love... c'mon!

MODERN FAMILY - Anyone who has not watched this show IS MISSING OUT!! This show is so well written - the storylines are priceless and sometimes realistic. The hilarity is the key here though. From the rich old guy with the busty Columbian wife and step-son, to the gay couple with the adopted daughter and the wife/husband + 3 kids-combo - it's an easy watch, so funny and all of the characters are likeable/laughable!!

Okay, COUGAR TOWN has to be one of my absolute FAV's!! I am so bummed if there is a repeat on because I've seen them ALL. Courtney Cox plays Jules - I was a huge 'Friends' fan so I decided to watch this show.. however, my favourite characters are that of Laurie, Ellie, Grayson, Andy and of course the amazing Bobby Cobb!! Laurie is my FAV tho, she's so goofy but completely confident with that - LOVES her! After watching this show I find myself in need of my very own humungus 'Karl' wine glass... Another easy watch with characters that always get the last laugh. And who doesn't want to play *PENNY CAN* over a few drinks with their besties?!

CALIFORNICATION - the sexed up version of Mulder - okay, so Mulder's character couldn't be further from Hank's but if Duchovny does it for you - this show cannot be missed! Had I been described a show about a womanizing, drunk, semi-successful author I likely would have passed.. but Hank and his messed-up-self is totally lovable. Not to mention totally crass and hysterical. The sex and drugs is shocking and interesting at the same time - like being a voyeur in his whacked out life. This show is on HBO which I invested in specifically to watch this gem.

The new season of American Idol is FAN-TASTIC!!! I truly believe that has everything to do with the addition of Steven Tyler. Now, in all honesty - I thought he was their replacement for Paula lol!! Figured he'd be the 'spacey' addition - Was I EVER wrong about that... first of all he's hilarious and secondly, his comments are the most legit if you ask me! I decided to give AI a chance for the first episode only... now, I'm hooked. Had it just been Jennifer/Randy/Ryan I think it would have been a snooze-fest for me but Steven makes it GREAT! Nevermind the weekly eye-sex he has with several of the female contestants - if you haven't noticed THAT part yet you haven't been watching the same show as me lol!!

So... those are some of my fav's... just thought I'd share
