I always see threads about shows that everyone seems to just love. Often, I have never seen them.

What shows have you never seen that people rave over?

I have never seen:

Lost
Desperate Housewives

Nearly all of them. The only one I do keep up with and love is Lost. Haven't seen any of the others. I do want to check out Grey's Anatomy though!

All the reality contest ones, so Survivor and the rest of their ilk including American Idol and the Model one and the Dancing one. House, CSI, The Office and rest of that stuff. I never saw The Sopranos or Dawsons Creek. I saw Desperate Houswives and Grays Anatomy once each, eh.

Oh, me too!

I have never seen CSI, Project Runway, Jackass, or Entourage either. I could also add How I Met Your Mother. Out of the entire NBC evening lineup, I have seen four shows. I have seen one on CBS and five on ABC. The only show of which I am a regular viewer is Ugly Betty, though that is getting to be very much like a Telenovela these days.

nearly all of them, to repeat elizaveta. I don't have a tv and have been out of the US for 8 years with no English language channels. The only tv we watched all those years was when we were visiting countries which carried English language shows.

So I'm really out of the loop. And funnily enough, I really don't care. LOL

I'm deeply pathetic, I think. I have not seen a single show listed on this thread. We haven't had cable in a decade. I'm pretty up to date on movies, though.

Yes, please!!!! I had to buy them on DVD.

The only popular show that I do watch is Grey's Anatomy (online).
I have never ever seen American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, CSI...

We're not huge on TV, but we do watch My Boys on TBS.

Hey, me too!

Gosh, I don't think I've watched anything this decade that wasn't Star Trek or Stargate related. I don't even know the names of the shows some of you are mentioning.

I know right?!

and I HAVE cable! People!!!

Well, I don't have movie channels, but I have enough channels that I might should have seen some of this stuff, by now. I'm just finally all caught up on SATC in time for the movie. so yeah, that's how I roll-like 4ish years behind the rest of the pack. and I don't mind.

I WILL say, though, that IF you get a shot or chance, then DO try out top chef or project runway. I know bravo is like goofio and like not intellectually stimulating tv on the whole, but danged if they can't help you to make a couture gown or a fab dish for all your guests. just sayin. That's all good brain rot, imo.

I have NEVER seen one minute of:

The Sopranos

Lost

CSI

Dancing With the Stars

House



Other than that, what's really "popular"?

Sgt. Renninger, Ofc. Owens, Ofc. Griswold, Ofc. Richards, Deputy Mundell

I have never seen any of those fake MTV reality shows...The Hills is one of them, I think. I've also never seen Gossip Girl, The Tudors, or the L Word.
