I never partook, but last during last season of biggest loser, some of my flight school cohorts had a weekly get together which they called, "Food and Fatties."

They would order/buy/cook the most ridiculously unhealthy food (by design) and watch biggest loser.

Seinfeld and King of Queens.

And Colts football.

NFL Sunday ticket owns!

But yeah, I agree, it's 99.999% garbage.

Re: Is anyone as disgusted with TV as I am?

Lots of good stuff on the History Channel. Anybody see WWII in HD? That is come of the best programming ever made. A lot of other good stuff too.

Discovery - Mystery Diagnosis is really interesting. City Confidential, Biography, Forensics shows

I Shouldn't Be Alive / I Survived

LOST

MythBusters - although this one is starting to get old, they've had great shows in the past.

The Ultimate Fighter.

Justified - great new show.

Glenn Beck!

Re: Is anyone as disgusted with TV as I am?

What is this TV of which you speak? I don't have enough time for TV. I don't have cable and my TV hasn't been turned on in over a year. It's the 32" tube from 2000 when I was still in college. It was all the rage then. Trinitron technology!

Re: Is anyone as disgusted with TV as I am?

I DVR The Biggest Loser, it's some sort of strange addiction. Other than some random junk I stumble across, that's the only television I watch. Who has time?
The funniest part about The Biggest Loser? My 8 yr old daughter mistakenly calls it "Big Fat Losers"

I watch Lost, and Fringe. And an occasional dog nanny show on Animal Planet, to try to figure out my dogs' "issues."

I think it was our way of saying that there are some perfectly good shows on TV...but you mostly need to avoid the major networks and crappy reality TV they've been programming lately.
