    I got a postcard in the mail saying my household has been chosen to do the Neilsen Ratings. Once upon a time, I would have loved this, but I almost never watch TV any more.

    Now I feel obligated to start watching, so I can have my TV vote counted!

    So help me out. What shows are good? (Network shows only, please, no cable channel shows.) Tell me what they're about.

    Hmm.......the only tv I sit and watch, when the shows are on are...NCIS, Survivor, Amazing Race, sometimes Bachelor/Bachelorette and sometimes Dancing With The Stars.
    Other than that, I don't watch much, well, unless Gordon Ramsey is on lol

    I love PBS, especially Nova and the History Detectives, The new archeology show is good too, but I can't think of the name right now.

    Turn-offs are cheesy "reality" shows and amateur shows where the "stars" delight in putting other people down. Enough already!

    NCIS is more or less a cop show, for lack of a better word. It's Naval Criminal Investigative Service is what it stands for. It's a show about the NCIS agents getting the bad guys.
    The rest of the shows are reality shows.

    I'll watch some cooking shows, mainly for the noise, but those are cable channels. Not much here on the pebble that isn't cable.

    Karla! You do come up with great ideas!
    I told hubby that we really only need a tv that works for about 3 hours a day because that's about all it's used for. He listens to CNN or Fox News in the mornings and I usually have it on for noise in the house.

    Amazing Race is good and I like Survivor also
    I also watch grey's anatomy, good show
    I am a big PBS fan also
    There is still great shows on Television, you just have to search for them

    Neilsen Ratings is a pain in the butt to do. It hasn't changed since my grandmother did the rating one time back in the 60's. You have to fill in every hour of 24 hours for two weeks and I think you get something like $3. And most cable channels aren't listed so you have to write those in and looking up what channel is named what. I would say no thanks and save a headache. They will pester you if you sign up and don't follow through.
