    I've seen threads about shows we go out of our way to watch.
    Things we like well what about things we avoid?
    Be it TV shows like (Samantha B. Full frontal.) One I avoid, or whatever you avoid.
    Let's hear what those things are.

    The last time I turned on a TV was about two years ago, except for incoming hurricane news coverage.
    So my answer would be, "All of them."

    I don't watch the news on TV anymore. The reporters there don't have enough sense to know what they are looking at. As a matter of fact they don't have a lick of sense at all.

    Any of the late night "comedy" shows. To me, this trend in politicizing these former comedy/talk shows started with Letterman after 9/11. Now, we have Colbert, Seth Myers, the Jimmy Kimmel Estrogen Hour, etc. None of them are funny and they are all awful human beings.

    I avoid every reality tv show like the plague. I get to see enough people acting like dumb-asses in my real life. Don’t need to come home and watch more of it.

    Yeah, I forgot about Kimmel. Just what I need, a guy who used to open a show with women in bikinis jumping on trampolines (The Man Show) now trying to preach to me about sexism.

    My thought when I read Wheels initial post. I avoid "family TV" like I avoid Diet and carbonated drinks and food marked "natural". They will all slowly kill you.

    I watch the Broncos on TV, maybe championship NCAA football. I will stick with the radio and the theater of the mind...

    Lightning took out my last TV in May 2002. I can’t help avoiding all that garbage.

    I avoid Kalifornia at all costs.

    Still not watching the NFL this year (kinda thinking that might be a permanent thang).

    And I’ve NEVER understood the appeal these “reality TV shows”.

    That’s why I like you Chuck. You are a smart man. Indeed, a smart man.
