There are so many different types of TV shows out there.
You have comedy shows meant strictly to entertain. There are crime and dective shows like Law and Order or CSI.
Reality TV shows are generally maligned for their lack of decency or any discernable purpose, but other people tend to like them for just that purpose.
Then there are medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy. Personally I find these shows a bit boring, but many people love them.
You have teen-centered dramas like The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl. These are usually found on networks like ABC Family and the CW. I love to make fun of shows like these, but I also find myself reluctantly enjoying many of them, as well.
There are a host of Science Fiction shows that utilize aliens, robots, space, science and technology in their plotlines. You run the risk of being called a geek for watching them, but the fan bases make up quite a loyal following.
Of course there are cartoons, as well. I don’t mind the Saturday morning or Nickelodeon variety, but the growing base of adult-targeted cartoons is something I’ve never really understood. The Simpsons, Family Guy, and American Dad never really appealed to me.
So are you a devoted follower of Family Guy? Or do you prefer the latest catty drama of Gossip Girl? Would you rather watch a doctor perform surgery or see a police dectective on a stakeout?
