    OK, what are all the shows you watch that you know are probably useless wastes of airtime &/or nothing really informative, but you love it anyway?! :)

    Here's mine:

    Be Good Johnny Weir - I actually just have to mention this show. I don't think this is completely useless because it talks about the skating world too, but I really love it & Johnny! I'm addicted to HIM.

    Keeping Up w/ the Kardashians
    Kourtney & Khloe in NY
    Soon will be Khloe & Lamar
    America's Next Top Model
    Kimora Lee Simmons: Life in the Fab Lane
    Holly's World
    Kendra
    Bachelor/Bachelorette
    Bachelor Pad
    The Millionaire Matchmaker
    Kitchen Nightmares
    Harry Loves Lisa (as in Harry Hamlin & Lisa Rinna)
    Tori & Dean on the Oxygen channel...the show's OK

    (If I remember more, I'll add them.)

    I have a slight Bravo addiction ...
    but by far the biggest waste of time tv show I love is any of the real Housewives shows! They are like car accidents, you cant turn your head away!

    My addiction is Justified (I have a "Johnny Weir-like obsession with Timothy Olyphant), but guilty pleasures are Survivor, Ghost Hunters, Chopped, Top Chef, Destination Truth, Cupcake Wars (I see a trend) and (sigh) Wipeout.

    I don't have cable, so anything I watch is downloaded online. I don't watch a lot of TV, but I like Jersey Shore, Teen Mom 2, America's Top Model, LA Ink. I was enjoying Sister Wives but I haven't been able to find any episodes online since the 2nd or 3rd show.

    I love America's Next Top Model and What Not to Wear. Nobody would believe at work that I watch such dribble but I love the dribble.

    Rockhubby and I tend to bond over The Smoking Gun on TruTV. When he isn't around I tend to devolve and watch all the silly dating shows.

    Also, my guilty pleasures:
    Chopped
    Restaurant/Dinner Impossible

    I was sitting in a motel and had access to www.hulu.com. I became addicted to two shows. Merlin and My Princess. I couldn't watch the second season of Merlin because the captions was missing. I seriously have to rag to hulu to fix that. My Princess is a Korean comedy drama show. I wouldn't have ever picked it up had it not come up in the "recommended" sections based on what I was watching but I fell in love with it. Don't worry, there are English captions on it. If you liked the movie Princess Diaries, this is for you. THe first show was a bit hard to get into, but after that I was fully hooked until I watched every single one of them.

    Please DO NOT judge NJ by these idiots. They, for the most part, are not from NJ. EEEK.

    I went to High School with the sister of one of the cast members (the sister of Samantha "Sweetheart" Giancola was in my graduating class). I think I met Samantha once, she seemed rather intelligent. I believe she just puts on a face for the camera so she gets paid ridiculous amounts of money :p

    (Giancola is the only one from NJ)

    no one has mentioned MY guilty pleasures...while i also watch Teen Mom 2 and ANTM etc, i also love love love to watch....

    Lock Up on MSNBC
    Almost ANYTHING on Investigation: Discovery channel
    Gangland

    i have no idea why i like all those jailhouse type shows.

    i also am a HUGE fan of Snapped.
    (But i tell my hubby that is an educational show...those women got CAUGHT..i now have a list of what NOT to do! Keeps him in line LOL. and then he points out that a lot of the women on Snapped are from Texas. Not sure what that means. Perhaps it is just realllly hot here!)

    Mexican Soap Operas are the best and super addictive. They last only about 5 to 6 months, there is a new episode every day so there is something to look forward to everyday. For those of you wanting to practice your spanish, this is the best way. Plus some of the actors are super hot!

    I'm also addictited to DYI. Any show that shows how to do it yourself I love. I like house hunters also.

    Modern Family is marvelous too.
