Scrubs - got sick of all the hallucinations/dream sequences/whatever
Smallville - just didn't do anything for me
24 - This show thinks it's a lot smarter and more interesting than it really is.

Alias - fast paced with numerous interesting storylines
Amazing Race - gets better with every episode
Dawson's Creek - I heard this season sucks, but since I've never seen any previous seasons, I don't have any basis for comparison; I'm enjoying it so far
ER - I lost interest for a while, but now I enjoy watching it again

Thin Ice...
Survivor 3 - I hated Survivor 2, so maybe this should be in the "added" category; I enjoy the show, but it feels boring and played out from time to time
The Simpsons - I still watch it religiously, although I don't know why; it has its funny moments, but most episodes are a huge disappointment
Malcolm in the Middle - I love this show, but every episode feels so darn similar

The only new show this season I make a point to watch is "Enterprise" because it's Star Trek.

I watch "Smallville" and/or "24" after "Frasier" just to see if Clark saves another person from a car.

Other than that, I'm just really watching the shows I have consistently watched in the past:
-Futurama(when new eps finally start)
-Malcolm in the Middle
-King of Queens
-Everybody Loves Raymond
-Gilmore Girls
-West Wing

I've dropped most shows over the last couple of years. I don't watch most prime time TV now. There are maybe 3 shows that I have to watch, and 2 that I'd like to watch if they're on. Otherwise I watch a DVD, read a book, or watch a documentary of some sort on one of those edumicational channels.

The main show I can think of that I've 'dropped' would be the X-files a bit after Robert Patrick joined. It became a different show and a none too interesting one, IMHO. Too much crap going on to care about it anymore.

This is what I watch:

Third Watch
Good Eats

My wife watches these so I pick up the storyline by osmosis:


But neither are shows I care that much about. TV kind of sucks, you know?

I haven't yet watched CSI this year... I dont know why, I just haven't... I suppose I figured Survivor and ER were enough TV for Thursday.

I've pretty much dropped The X-Files. I haven't had any desire to watch the first two episodes. I may check out Alias this Sunday after The Sopranos (if they actually show it this weekend), or I might check out The Mind of the Married Man... I watched a couple episodes and enjoyed it.

I think next week I may also watch an episode of Undeclared. I've seen a bit of it before 24, and it really feels like a college version of Freaks and Geeks, which I loved!

Undeclared (no hot chicks)
Alias (it's too much like Felicity)
The Agency (lost interest)
Crossing Jordan (Jill Henessey is hot, hot, hot, but it's not enough to keep me watching

Boston Public
Ally McBeal
NYPD Blue (Zack Morris is pretty good!)
Dawson's Creek (Holy s**t! Dawson's going to get his cherry popped by Jen!)
