When I was younger, I use to like watching TV evangelists as a "How To Be a Con Artist" lessons guide.

This was around the time when Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart were revealed to be having financial/personal scandals.

I still watch Survivor and TAR but haven’t seen American Idol in a while. I really liked SYTYCD when I watched it, but wasn’t dedicated enough to keep up. I still watch the occasional cooking competition but missed the last couple seasons of Top Chef.

i don’t watch dating shows or the Real Housewives-type stuff. I’ll consider watching probably every other category.

Me too. I find crime procedurals boring as hell, all of them, and the vast majority of reality shows are vapid garbage IMO.

It's possible for a lot to entertain me however I need something to draw me in like powers, comics, magic, fantasy, sci-fi, thriller etc.... sitcoms rare have a draw. Most network tv feels like the same police, medical, reality and lawyer shows which has little appeal.

Anything that's just about being a teen, love or ordinary every day life.

Fantasy.

And almost Westerns. Deadwood is the only one I've ever watched.

I typically don't watch horror, TV or Movie. There are some exceptions but they're few and currently none on TV. I don't watch animated. I used to watch Simpsons and Archer but haven't in years. I like the police shows, NCIS, Swat, Rookie, Chicago, etc. I wish there were some Western TV shows. The only reality shows I watch are Gordon Ramsay type. I did watch the Radkes and thought it was pretty funny but I don't know if I'll continue. I like most fantasy shows/scifi like The Outpost, 100, Star Trek Discovery, etc.
