    Hi all

    We run a tv related forum and was just wondering what tv programs or show you consider to be good and a big following?

    It does'nt matter if its UK, US or anywhere as long as you feel that it has a good following and is good on tv then we want to hear about it.

    List as many as you like, more ideas the better.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Most everything on TV lately is horrible and almost unbearable to watch. I mostly watch repeats of old shows on TV Land, the U.K. version of Top Gear (the U.S. version is unbearable to watch) and Pawn Stars.

    Hi

    I'm not sure that everything on Tv is unbreable to watch it's all down to taste and what people like.

    There is some good shows on, Tv gear in ths us? its a bit like jeremy kyle, every loves his shows here in the UK but the new US version some people don't like and thats because it does'nt quite live up to the UK version he has a more softer approach on the US version.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    My favourite TV series is 24. Otherwise I have watched recently...

    Alcatraz (it kind of sucked)
    Fringe
    Lost
    Touch (this is currently broadcasting)
    The Unit
    Waterloo Road

    And some old ones like Roots.

    A lot of people in the UK like soap operas, but I'm not really a huge fan, though in the past I watched the Australian series Home and Away (that has been ongoing for an incredibly long time) on every weekday. Perhaps a focus on soap operas would help.

    I've also watched a lot of anime, but that's often seen as a separate niche from "TV". I know I'm nitpicking here, but I'd say television has always been shortened to TV, indeed with the V capitalised.

    Edit: Checked out your forum properly and I see you have a soap section. :)

    I only watch three things on TV... Sports, news and documentaries :)
    I can't really bring myself to care much about most other shows, although there are some I used to watch in the past (House MD, Eli Stone and so on).
