In Response to Welcome and Roll Call by MzJules46
I watch a lot of reality shows. I especially like the ones in which the participants have to demonstrate their skills, although I always feel bad that in contests there's only 1 winner! My favorites are "America's Next Top Model", "Top Chef", "Project Runway", and "Chopped." I watch a lot of the other reality contests, but I dislike the ones that are more about the contestants fighting & "forming alliances" against others, than about what they themselves can accomplish. I also don't like shows where the host/leader/judge is deliberately meanspirited .. like Chef Gordon Ramsey on "Hell's Kitchen".
I also confess to liking some reality shows that aren't contests, like "The Real Housewives of .." franchise. The best part is that you don't have to watch the whole thing, and can change channels when anyone gets obnoxious .. LOL!
I also seem to watch a lot of crime shows, because it gets you thinking, but after many years, some of those shows begin to get formulaic or repetitive. I like the "Law & Order" and "CSI" shows, but also "Castle" & "Inspector Lewis" (PBS).
