Going to add a new category for this year:

Favorite Guilty Pleasure Show to watch: Amish Mafia

Here's the thing though. You have to watch it as a comedy in just how badly staged it is. That show is hilariously bad, but has it all. Midgets, Over the top religious types, the "black amishman", the muscle, the woman pulling the strings. It is a riot! Check it out just once, but seriously, watch it as a comedy and not the "drama" they want it to be!

Besides sports, Breaking Bad is the only show that I watch regularly on TV now.

Check it out on Netflix to get caught up with all the old seasons.

Sadly I do tune in to Seinfeld reruns anytime they are on also. Still funnier than anything on TV IMHO

For one more week, it's Breaking Bad. I'd watch it over football. If you haven't watched it, get on Netflix and start binging.

Strong runner up candidates:
Walking Dead
Boardwalk Empire
Game of Thrones
Sons of Anarchy (although I feel it teetering on a "Jump the Shark" ledge at times)
Tosh.O
The League
Orange is the New Black (Netflix series)

So, I have young kids, who like to watch Sesame Street. SoA nearly did "Jump the Shark" when Sesame Street did a SoA spoof one morning recently. I was like "Oh hell no!" I think this was either just before this new season started or just after the first episode. Either way, this season has been so good so far that SoA has solidified itself as my #1 show on TV. So many WTF moments this year already. And they seem to be doing a great job of tying up loose ends from previous seasons. Knowing that the series ends after next season really makes me like what they are doing now to set it all up. Can't wait to see how this all goes down!

Series Finale of Sons of Anarchy is tonight. Sad to see it come to an end, but glad that it is going out on top, instead of waiting until it jumped the shark.

Hope the ending is as great as the series has been!

Looking forward to the spin-off of Breaking Bad, "Better Call Saul". Loved the role played by Bob Odenkirk on BB, so I'll definitely give this a try. Never know with spinoffs, sequels, etc., but it's worth a shot. Premiers in early Feb. I believe.

Surprised no one has mentioned Homeland.
Glad Tim Biakabatuka is out of the league.

New one to add to the list:

Mr. Robot

The casting of characters is spot on right now. Show is only 4 episodes old, but it is one of my favorites already. Can't wait to see where they go with it!
