I watch 4 tv shows: Countdown, Rachel Maddow, Monk and House. It's pretty obvious why I like the 2 news shows. I like Rachel's show more and more because she is so smart and so well prepared, respectful, funny, and adorable. Keith is getting more and more snipey, but I still watch.
House is great because I like to think of myself as House; I know more than you, and I don't give a shit. Although I do act this way sometimes, I realize I shouldn't, unlike House.
Monk is a great show, and Tony Shaloub is great. So far, this season has been a disappointment. Not very funny, or clever. And I can figure out "what happened" way too early in the show. Too bad. It was a great show.
