Anyone found something they are enjoying watching this summer? Besides reruns of course. I have seen the ABC show Wipeout, I guess it is the American version of another country's show. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a TV show before. Lots of new summer shows, like In Plain Sight, Hopkins, Secret Life of an American Teenager... I don't watch any of the ones I named, but I've seen ads for them.

I was deathly afraid Michael would not get kicked off. He did a couple weeks ago, but could you imagine him getting the show? No one would watch it because he was so mean. And at the end he kept saying he wanted his mom!

I enjoy watching television in the summer. There are several shows that I don't miss like Monk and Psych, which start soon. Also I'm a huge Project Runway fan. One show I have taped this summer is America's Got Talent and clearly a few are just better than the rest this year. I know a few will be surprised, as I'm watching Flipping Out and see others are fans of Jeff. He needs to fire the man that isn't working right away. Some of the new shows that I have viewed are Wipe-Out that is one show you will never see me on it. They must be in pain for weeks after all the falls. In Plain Sight which is ok, but rather have The 4400 back now. Nashville Star has one lady that really can sing and will have a long career. She won't need to win the show to be a huge success.

I would never be on Wipeout either. But I'm sure glad other people want to be on it! : ) Yeah, I think Jeff should fire Chris too. But if he did, I think Jenny might quit, even though it was her husband who is in the wrong.

I have been watching America's Got Talent and Nashville Star this summer. Haven't watched it before now and I am enjoying them. I also have discovered a show that's been on awhile but I never really took the time to watch, Naked Archaeologist. I am addicted to it now.

There is a new program that started - I think on ABC - that is called Hopkins and is about doctors and at Johns Hopkins hospital.

I am enjoying America's Got Talent. I never really watched it before this year. Also I am looking forward to Big Brother 10 starting this weekend. Most of the shows I watch on tv are reruns of old classics in one way or another, whether it is movies or sit-coms. There are very few new shows that I watch regularly. My favorite has been NCIS. It used to be that if there was a crime show on I liked watching it. But they have gotten so graphic anymore that I don't watch very many anymore. I like the mystery. In NCIS, I like the personalities and how they play off each other. Otherwise I wouldn't be watching that one either. I just prefer the quality of the older shows.

I really hate tis time of year for TV with all of the reruns but I have been watching In Plain Site and Burn Notice. Thaose are both really good shows. With all of the crap from the writers strike this year its been a bad year for TV. Cheers, Tianna

I dont know about you ,but we seem to get a lot of re runs here in the UK ...its fine if you havent watched the programme for ages,but if you can remember it well then its no good to watch it again!But I like a good documentary..and the other night we watched a brilliant one ,it was about the Romanys,the way that the romanies lived their lives and the rules that they lived by..it was a real insight into their ways of life..fascinating.

Sort of. I am in the middle of watching Food Network's reality show where they are choosing a new star for their programming. And I think it's really fun and interesting to watch. I can't wait for Project Runway to start. That show is really cool because I don't know anything about making clothes, lol. And they make it seem so easy.

To be honest Ambie I'm just not much of a TV watcher...I'm uh, always working..LOL. I'd love to watch Hopkins for instance, but I'm still planted in the computer at that time...the only time I watch TV is maybe after 1:00 in the morning, the night owl that I am..LOL. In fact, I've been kind of slack with my article writing lately and Pyewacket is annoyed I haven't been writing his novel...so to keep him happy going to write later on. Hehee

I watch So You Think You Can Dance and America's Got Talent. I like In Plain Sight, too. Mostly I like Law & Order reruns. I watch the House and Bones that I missed, too. I like Numbers reruns and Without a Trace as well as Cold Case. There is always something for me to watch. I am patiently waiting for the football season to start.

I watched part of Wipeout last night. I would not be on that show doing those things even for the chance at $50,000. I would probably break my neck. I also watched a few minutes of I survived a Japanese Game Show. That one is pretty dumb. I have not been watching much television this summer. When I do watch it is mostly reruns of the shows I watch during the regular season.

I like so you think you can dance. America's got talent and especially Hopkins. I also like the Fear itself show but since it is opposite of Hopkins I dont get to see it anymore. Some of the summer replacements I will be sorry to have go away. Others I wont miss much.
