I have to truly come out and say My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the best show on tv. I have to say it doesn't matter if your a male or female, if your 12 or 30, that show if you look at it with an unbiased mind is actually really entertaining and has a ton of good morels other cartoons nowadays don't.
If I had to chose a real life person type show then I would say an even match up between: Lizard Lick Towing Burn Notice Pawn Stars Hardcore Pawn
I like to watch Person of Interest, The Closer, both NCIS series, Rozzeli and Iles, Mike and Molly, the Mentalist, CSI New York and Blue Bloods.I will not watch any reality TV shows and am especially turned off by anything that involves the Kardashians, housewives, Snooky, anything with a Palin in it, and basically shows that promote individuals who have zero talent and nothing useful to offer except self promotion.
Dancing With the Stars - it's nice to see rich, spoiled, entitled folk actually working their asses off for next to nothing - other than pride in accomplishment and a less-than-classy mirror ball trophy! I like that a lot!
I really love Shark Tank. Being the economics nerd that I am, getting to see the negotiating between the individual entrepreneurs and the "sharks" is really awesome and can get very tense and suspenseful. Also seeing all of the ideas that people bring in is very inspiring because it shows the innovative spirit that individuals can have.
