Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite TV Shows (or the shows I watch the most often)

I am not much of a TV watcher but the TV is on a lot of the time. 

1. The Rachel Maddow Show...for my nightly political fix.

2. The Voice...I love this show and will get rather obsessed with it as it nears its finale. My favorite singer to emerge out of this show: Jordan Smith.

3. Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives...I like lots of cooking/foody shows. This one has actually helped us make selections of places to eat when we've been on the road.

4. Dr. Who...since this is from BBC I can't always find this show on a schedule. I've watched all the episodes from Doctor #9-12. Now I await more from Doctor #12.

5. American Ninja Warrior...I am not sure why this show makes me so happy, but it does. I watch it when I need to escape from serious things in life.

6. Oregon Ducks Football...obviously there aren't that many football games during a season but we either go to the games or watch them on TV. We can't get DISH TV because they do not carry the station that carries all the Duck games if they aren't on another network.

7. The Great British Bake Off...another show on BBC but if I can find it, I love this baking show where very British-sounding treats are baked up each week.

8. America's Got Talent...I usually don't enjoy it until later in the season when the real talent has been sorted out.

9. Chopped...another cooking show, this one ends up with a winner by the end of the episode. I like to watch folks cook under pressure (so I don't have to!)

10. Big Bang Theory...I don't even know if this show is still a current show but if it is ever on, I enjoy watching it.


  1. I got rather addicted to the Great British Bake Off when I was up in Alaska with my friend. Where do you find it on TV? I want to watch it!

    1. I found it on PBS but I can't tell you what day or time. It is a moving target.

  2. I love Ninja Warrior too. I think I like the Japanese version more than the US one but it's still entertaining. I think like most people I love when they fall. But I also love when people manage to beat the odds and finish the course. So strong... I could never do that.
    And Great British Bake Off is lovely. Although it does give me the craving for sweet treats. Great list! Happy Tuesday.

  3. The Big Bang Theory is on my list as well, and I really enjoy Doctor Who. I haven't gotten past the 11th Doctor yet though. :) Great list, and thanks for sharing.
    Here's my TTT

  4. We have one on the same list. The rest I have never watched, so thanks for sharing your favorites!

    Here's my list of TV Shows I Watch Even After I Gave Up TV!

  5. Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives! Mmmm. It's shown really late night here and always leaves me wanting heaps of bacon and cheese at 2 in the morning. Totally a guilty pleasure.
    Here's my TTT this week.

  6. For some or other weird reason, I really struggle to get into Reality TV...! But the ones that you watch does appear to be fun at least! Nice selection. Here's my TTT: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2016/09/top-ten-tuesday-its-lost-cause.html

  7. I just got myself caught up on the most recent season of Doctor Who - Heaven Sent was my favorite episode of the season! And, I really liked The Husbands of River Song!

  8. I don;t watch much reality TV so haven;t seen most of these, but I love that you are a fan of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives! We also use Guy's selections (as well as the Roadfood guide) to find great places to eat when we travel - part of the fun of a roadtrip!

  9. I was really into Big Bang Theory for a long time, but I eventually fell off after Sheldon got that girlfriend. The seasons before that are gold though.
