Community - I don't hold out much hope for it being any good when it returns
Breaking Bad - Delaying starting season 5 because I've done the rest with someone else and watching it isn't the same without them
American Dad - Best comedy on air right now.
Weekly Wipe - Charlie Brooker's new show, where he actually plays to his strengths

If I had cable, I'd be watching:

Spartacus

Game of Thrones

The Venture Brothers

Archer

But since I don't, I watch these on DVDs about two years after they originally air. :cry:

Yes, I know about torrent sites ...

Also, if I had cable, I'd watch that sex show that's on HBO every Thursday night. Real Sex, that's what it's called, I think.

I enjoyed the first season but then found the second season a bit naff.

A toss-up, depending on how much the new producers want to continue Harmon's original vision versus staking out their own territory. I'm hopeful, but I wouldn't be especially surprised if this mini-season is a bust.

Otherwise, the only thing I'm watching (besides re-runs of Law and Order and Star Trek) is Archer. In a couple months, tho, Mad Men kicks into gear, which will be mandatory viewing here.

Similar to Spiff, most of the shows I watch I just watch as they become available via DVD or Netflix Instant (or Hulu). Shows I watch either over the air or the day after on Hulu:

-Community: Like Maj, worried that it will suck ass when it returns.
-Parks and Recreation: I enjoy it even more knowing how much it irritates Beej.
-Downton Abbey: As I've mentioned elsewhere, true "event viewing" these days.
-Arrow: Actually not terrible. Maybe it helps that I don't really have in depth knowledge of the Green Arrow mythos, so the liberties the show takes don't raise a red flag for me.
-Daily Show/Colbert Report: Don't really watch regularly at all anymore, but occasionally I'll catch an episode if I'm killing some time.

I watch all the AMC shows (Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels) as they show up on Netflix, ditto other stuff like Warehouse 13, Eureka, Alphas, etc.

Archival television I've been mostly watching is Cheers & The Twilight Zone (with that binge of The Larry Sanders Show I did a week or so back).

Addendum: Oh, duh. Doctor Who. Of course, it's been so sporadic the last year or so I almost forgot that it's actually still a functioning television show.

Oh, I'll obviously be watching the return of Arrested Development when it comes on. I'll have to go the extralegal route to see it, tho, thanks to the for-my-own-good restrictions of the Canadian state. :rolleyes:

I like The Walking Dead and also Dexter. I end up recording all the stuff I watch due to working night shifts.

Keep an eye out for a new show called "They Think It's All Over."
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

An endlessly satisfying and profitable way to spend one's life.

That's another one that I'm never quite bothered enough to watch by myself, but if I'm with Ni, you'll find me rapt.

I'd do well to dip back into all three of these.

Excepting a few select episodes, I really don't care much for Cheers after Coach died. The humour seems too forced for my liking.

We don't have that but there is no show starting next week called Question of Sport with Ian Botham and Emlyn Hughes. Did you see Gerry Francis shoot the table in Superstars last night ? was so funny Kev Keegan fell off his bike.
