We have a problem here. You're missing the best, most original and funniest show on television.

Please correct the problem immediately. Thank you.

This is the story of a wealthy family, who lost everything, and the one son who was sane enough to pull them through ... this is Arrested Development.

That's how I got started on that sort of show. Well, not really, but Discovery's brand of it. But lately, I've been more about Monster House. That, and... uhm... tradingspaceswhileyouwereoutcleansweep.

American Choppers is a cool show that is on after Monster {House,Garage}. The father and son interaction is funny, plus the motorcycles that they build are cool.

Yeah, but my dad's kind of burned me out on that show. He just sits there and points out all the times the father makes fun of the son. It's an okay show otherwise, but he (my father, not the one on the show) has a tendency to ruin everything he watches.

But I'm thankful.




I love this show as well. Plus, even though Tony Shaloub is from Wisconsin, he graduated from one of my alma maters - the University of Southern Maine!

When I vegged out after surgery here a few months ago, I got hooked on BBC America's "Bargain Hunt" and "Cash in the Attic." They're just fun shows that have no particular relevance, no big winners usually...but entertaining...

If you are into Tejas Hold Em, you should watch for the Travel Channel's World Poker Tour. Hell, some of the playes that make the final table on that show are more entertaining than Allison Janney or Sara Silverman could ever be. I think they are in re-run right now, because of the two hour length I have a bunch on tape, so I don't know if there was a finale yet.

My fav American Chopper eps is the one from season 1 where paulie is making the Jetbike? but him and Sr have a heart to heart on the couch.

My dad is a tough as nails ex Army-Air Corps Sargent then OSS agent and he was a hardass like Paul Sr.

But dad and I never had talks like that. You know, talking about feeling and emotions and why he's always coming down on me.

Kinda wish dad was like Paul Sr...it would be an improvement. And when Paul Sr. started tearing up, it touched me.

But neither of 'em have anything on David Cross or... uhm... whoever won. Proof that nipple rubs for luck really do work.

Arrested Developement is the funniest show going. So many little things goingon, and they are all funny. The George MIchael in love with his cousin aspect makes me laugh like a moron every week.

Also, if any of you are watching LINE OF FIRE (Tuesdays 10 EST) do you like it? I am absolutely hooked on this show.

The best part of American Chopper is the fat lazy useless brother, and how he can spin the dad up, with very little effort.

This is the show that took over for NYPD Blue, which was one of my fav tv shows btw. It used to make for a good tue night with 24 and Blue back to back. Anyone know when Blue is coming back?

My fav shows in no particular order

Sunday shows on Fox snd Adult Swim
24
Southpark, Chappelle show
Monk
The Wire and Oz reruns

Wow am I surprised with all the fellow Monk fans on here, I didn't know it had such a following. I thought it was on the USA network, I watch it off a Canadian channel.

Something totally different from Monk, has the MXC love disappeared already? Did Spike TV over do it with the endless marathons of 3 hours showings of the show. I still enjoy it even on 3rd and at times 4th viewing of an episode. But it might have been smarter to save some instead of wasting 6 episodes a night. Saying that, the halloween one I can watch a dozen times and still laugh out loud to it... I recently been watching Chappelle show as well, I found it to be really funny.

Nope, it's just that they need more new eps. The Halloween one was great. Only hitch was that they just don't have the same impact as the first time I saw Home Improvement v. Porn ("I'm talking about caulking compound!" "He built a place to do that?").

    I think Blue comes back near the end of February. They did that last season as well, but I cant remember what show replaced it while it was off for the winter break. Blue is, far and away my favorite drama when it is on. However LINE OF FIRE seems, to me at least, like it could have legs of its own when if it were to be moved to a different night once BLUE comes back.

Nicole Sullivan won the big grand finale, though she was extremely lucky when she eliminated Paul Rudd. David Cross was second.

Yeah, that was an insane suck-out on the Paul Rudd elimination. Needed a jack and queen to get a straight, or she's screwed (but still in it)... and gets it on the last two cards (river and... well, Fourth Street). And what did she do before then (at least half an hour before, but still)? Rub her nipple for luck.
