The Forming of the TrashWatcher

TV, snacks, beer, and a definite need for a bath

I call this my Saturday morning special

I watch too much TV.

I’m not unlike a lot of people out there.  Have you ever taken a look at the Nielsen Ratings?  There are millions of us out there stuck to a screen, eagerly awaiting the next crumb of entertainment from crummy television programs.

I’ve tried hiding it.  I’ve kept my addictions hidden from my peers, and relatives.  I’ve tried restricting myself, quitting cold turkey with loud declarations.

“I WILL NOT WATCH TV FOR A WHOLE YEAR! …I MEAN MONTH!”

I usually end up on the couch a few hours later, Oprah’s book of the month cast aside to watch actual Oprah.

This time I’m taking a different approach to my addiction to Television.  I’m going to start talking about it. This blog is dedicated to all the trashy television I watch. There will be spoilers, there will be crazy fan talk, and yes you can talk about your favorite shows here too.

So how do I define Trashy TV? Trash TV is the kind of TV that isn’t Shark Week. You don’t learn anything from it. It’s not fulfilling or enlightening.  It just tells a story, or gets you all revved up about nothing.

Examples:
The Real Housewives of (Insert City Here)
Any television show on MTV
So you biggest losers think you’ve got American X Factor
As well as anything played by NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, the CW or HBO for that matter.

Basically anything currently on TV is fair game, outside of those delightful PBS documentaries that a few dozen people still talk about.
