Things I Don’t Love: Awful TV Shows (That I End Up Watching)

Now, I should be clear, there are a lot of horrible TV shows out there. From the boringest of boring to the awfulest of awful. But not all shows hold my attention. There are plenty of shows that I will pass by and not give it a second thought.

But then there are THOSE shows. You know what I mean. The trainwrecks you can’t look away from. For example, this week I ended up watching a show about 6-year-old beauty queens. Although I was most horrified and worried for the self-esteem of those little girls, I could not for the life of me stop watching. I kept thinking “man, this is awful, I should really not even watch this” but no. I watched the entire thing.

I mean really people, where is my self control? If I have to watch more than 5 minutes of world war two planes on the history international channel I may kill myself, but you put on the national cheerleading championship and I am hooked. And ultimately embarrassed.

I question myself, why would you have such horrible taste? I wonder why I can’t get into shows that other people seem to like such as Lost or Heroes, but yet I get sucked into House (which I HATE) or even sometimes Dr. Phil!!! (This is like the worst confession ever, I had no idea the post was going in this direction)

Anyway, to all the horrible TV shows out there that suck me in, I hate you. I really do. Even if there is nothing better on, there are always books to be read and sleep to be had, dvds to be watched, and food to be eaten. May my confession lead me to better TV judgement.

PS If you want to tell me how good Lost or Heroes or House or whatever is, save your breath. Or your typings. Or whatever.

    I can never tell you how good Lost or Heroes is, I can’t watch them, drives me nuts. But I can sympathize, I got sucked into The Bachelor and I find myself watching 18 kids and counting with some regularity, Jose thinks I am nuts, then sits and watches it with me. Gotta love television right?!

    I like The Office! I missed it last night and I’m going to watch it online.

    When you said you liked Dr. Phil, I threw-up in my mouth a little bit. (Ok, not really, and sometimes I watch his show, like when he had the Octuplet mom on. I wanted to see what her babies looked like.)

    I never said I LIKE Dr. Phil. I just sometimes get sucked into it!

    I get sucked in easy too, so I mostly just have to never watch. Have you ever seen Arthur? That one is probably the most embarrassing on my list, and it always sucks me in.

    I get it about Dr. Phil. I get sucked in and I always want to send him a list of reasons of why he is stupid.

    Kelsey, I have the same problem! My problem is its those stupid, stupid reality shows. I’m afraid its the surprise factor that gets me. I’ll be watching those shows and thinking, “you’ve got to be kidding me-people are really like that?”

    so… I was looking for freelance writing jobs on craigslist and there was one for women bloggers. I think they’d hire you. You should look into it!

    i was laughing so hard i was crying — i can’t stop watching keeping up with the kardashians and i watch it in PURE amazement because i’m so impressed people can be that dense.

    I like stain removal infommericials…as long as Billy Maze isn’t involved…oh and spanish soap operas; I’m told I unwittingly mimic their facial expressions.
