    Interested in shows people watch, knowing full well you're just wallpapering the brain but you watch nonetheless...

    ... I'm gonna start with Hardcore Pawn, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding and D.U.I.

    +1 for Pawn Stars. Watching people sell and buy stuff. LOL

    A line in the sand has been drawn - and it's name is 'Here comes Honey Boo-Boo'.

    Think this may be the televisual equivalent of a large dose of morphine... Though nowhere close to as pleasurable - nor as easily recoverable.

    I dunno - there is good TV out there. For drama shows like The Wire on HBO. NatGeo got BBC's Frozen Planet to name but 2.

    My no-brainer "almost hate to admit I watch this" would be World's Dumbest X on TruTV, or World's Worst Tenants on Spike. I also do watch Hoarders and Hoarding: Buried Alive, those being motivation to stay on top of cleaning and organizing :).

    I do watch some stuff that doesn't qualify as "watching a train wreck to feel better about my own life, since I'm nowhere near qualifying for this show", honest! :)

    Those "I Heart the 70s/80s/90s" marathons on vh1 are pretty addictive and mindless.
    Embarrassed to say I used to like watching Cheaters, but it always made me tense up, like it was happening to me lol.

    I hate myself when I'm flipping through the channels and can't help myself from stopping and watching the human train wrecks on 16 & Pregnant/Teen Mom.

    Great idea, let's glamorize getting pregnant way before you're ready to be a parent by saying "hey, get knocked up in high school and you can be on TV and get famous!"

    Hey, I said I hate myself for watching it lol! But their lives don't seem very glamorous to me, more of a cautionary tale if anything. Unfortunately, judging by the fact Jerry Springer still finds enough "people" willing to degrade themselves on his show to fill five shows a week, some people don't see things that way.

    Most audience members in that age range will only see the "get famous by being on TV" part and be oh-so-sure that problems happen to everyone else, but won't to special little them.

    That's true. I vaguely remember those days. The beauty and the curse of being a teenager.

    What I watch at times is highly embarrassing, so I will only give you a couple. Teen mom/16 and pregnant (I like cussing at the tv) and big Ang (I like watching cigarette butts and ashes fly from her mouth as she speaks).

    I love how they all say the same thing, "they ask me to move it for them". LOL!!!
