I have a variety of programs that draw my inspiration, CNN, Old Movies on TCM and AMC, reality TV like survivor and amazing race. The travel channel, food network and nick. My number one program because of the diverse knowledge value is the History Channel along with H2.
I do not watch television any longer during the week and I find my writing to be much more creative. On the weekends I watch the food network, and hgtv, which give me great inspiration for my clay work, ideas for meals, etc. Besides that I find tv more of a hinderance than an inspiration.
