Default Television shows: What do you watch? (No Spoilers Please)

Which one do you follow more?
I know most of you prefer watching F1 racing, world Amazing videos or English leauge than these shows, but sometimes you have to watch because your better half is seeing it and when you have just 1 TV at home.

I feel the singers of VOI are good, Better than SA RE GA MA and Idol.
Indian Idol 3 will as usual loose its charm down the line.

What do you all think?

Used to watch Sa Re Ga Ma back in the day when Sonu Nigam was the anchor (in his pre-rockstar avataar). Dont watch any of the three any more though. American Idol sometimes. Otherwise my favourite shows are:

1. No Reservations - Anthony Bourdain (some other name now)
2. Those engineering type shows on discovery / NatGeo
3. Monster House
4. Monday Comedies on star world

Not sure about the professor bit, but he does have a nice car collection!

Takashi's castle always leaves me in splits of laughter. The commentry by Javed is awesome !! I do love watching Friends, although reruns.

As for these damned reality shows, all are crap. Everyone knows what happened to the last 2 idols who won. What irritates me even more is that even channels like Asianet have started something on similar lines called 'Idea Star Singer'. Needless to say, its crap.

we have 2 tv sets at home. i love cartoon network (Tom & Jerry, Baby Looney Toons), Takishi's Castle,

but now i dont get to see none of the shows.
reason:
1. Brother's Final Year Exams - he has occupied our room - cant watch
2. Mom doesnt miss the Bong soaps, Hindi soaps, saregamapa, VOI, Indian Idol 3. she keeps on switching channels from 6.30pm till 11.30pm.

Anyone tell me on which channel "Shinchen"is telecast ? Saw a couple of episodes and loved it.

I used to love "Khichdi"on Star One or was it Star Plus ?

As for these singing competitions - they are more of a show for the judges than the singers. Squabbling, calling each other names and what not. The only reason I watched the last 2 Indian Idol series was because of Anu Malik

NC

Shinchan is on Hungama TV 10 30 pm everyday and from 1 to 5 pm every Sunday :d

Speaking of Indian Idol i like show just for the different kinds of people you get to see who come for auditions.

Anu Malik is quite funny this time around too.
