    Mine has to be the Jerry Springer show. I'm working at home while my company cowers at the feet of Covid-19, so I keep the TV on for company. Weekdays at 2pm, it's on like donkey kong. "Let's bring him out..."

    It's 100% fake, I know that, but still greatly enjoy the ghetto and white trash actor fights. It's ridiculous and hilarious. And once you confirm they're actually real females, some of these stripper skanks ain't half bad looking.

    Cleanse your soul, unburden your conscience, and confess your TV sins here.

    Re runs of the Rifleman and the really old episodes of Gunsmoke.
    Any old show that has a noteworthy guest star.

    Television in general. I know I shouldn't be wasting time on any of it, but I do anyway.

    Space Force. I love The Office and was hoping for Michael Scott 2.0... While the show had its moments, it was unbelievably bad on the whole. Like it never could strike a consistent tone and made weird jokes that fell flat.

    Lately it's been reruns of Quantum Leap and Star Trek TOS for me.

    Corny but loveable tv, certainly not as dark and violent as what's on these days.

    These are good, normal shows. We need you to confess to something awful like Love and Hip Hop or something.

    Ok...once in a while I get to see some old Bob Ross Joy of Painting shows on PBS. I find it very relaxing watching the happy little trees and clouds spring to life, and always laugh when he cleans his paint brushes. Slappity-slap-slap-slap....

    Lately? Danger 5. It's sorta' like the old marionette action shows (Fireball XL5, Thunderbirds, et al.) but live-action with cleavage.

    I like a lot of the Netflix original food shows. It's certainly improved my range of cooking however it usually slants towards social justice and impoverished topics.

    When I had Direct TV I loved the Log Cabin Living and Buying Alaska shows.

    Now with only OTA Antenna for my service, I watch the Escape to the Country show on DABL.

    Been watching the West Wing lately.

    I have to say most shows about politicians and journalists are satire because who could make those scumbags seem interesting, but they do a decent job.

    It's a pleasant fiction. If you take 90% Veep and 10% West Wing you'd be about right I think.

    It's a feel good haven for liberals. My cousin says when it all gets to be too much, she watches WW reruns and dreams of another administration like that. Makes me laugh.
