What TV shows do you guys watch?

Do you ever get plotline ideas for Armageddon from TV?

edited to clean up misspelling and, uh, stuff

I don't watch a lot of TV these days.  About the only show I watch religiously is 'Heroes'.  While I don't try and pull plots directly from any other material, I do think that this show presents a great way of approaching plotting in Arm.  Grand stories, mysterious ending, lots of plot twists, but above all driven by characters and the stories surrounding each of them.
This post is a natural hand-made product. The slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and are in no way to be considered flaws or defects.

I loved Rome, now it is gone. I like the Tutors on Showtime just now, but it's not as good as HBO programming.  I also watch 24, though it gets crapper with each season. I also watch Entourage and for some god forsaken reason, I still watch the Sopranos.

After that, I'm all discovery Channel, all the time. That new special Planet Earth is blowing my mind lately. I have never said WOW!, so many times in a hour.

Deadwood used to give me ideas about PC's all the time. Rome just really brings certain aspects of the game alive for me.
Sometimes I feel less like an immortal and more like a drug dealer.

I'm with Qetesh. Rome was awesome. Aside from Rome, The Wire, The Sopranos (though I haven't seen anything beyond Season 5 yet), BSG annnd House when I get a chance to watch it, since I don't have television in my house.
Nusku the Burning says, out of character:
     "I don't want the world, I just want your half."

I watch tons of TV.  Mostly one-hour dramas like other people have mentioned.

My current favorites:
Lost, Drive, CSI, House, The Tudors, Weeds (imagine a Nakki noble stripped of her wealth and title, who turns to dealing spice)

I also have a weakness for reality TV and watch The Amazing Race, Survivor, and The Bachelor (yes, The Bachelor.  It's great for comedic relief and televised catfights)

I also loved Deadwood and Rome, and am curious to see what HBO will do next now that they and Sopranos are over.

Heroes is my current favorite TV show, backed up shortly by Battle Star Galactica (the new series on Sci-Fi) and How I Met Your Mother.

We also actively watch House, Mythbusters, Bones, Law & Order:SVU, The Dresden Files, Eureka, The 4400, Dancing with the Stars and American Idol.

I swear I didn't watch that much tv until they invented PVR/TIVO technology.  Ever since we got that we watch so much more tv.

It's a toss-up as to which is my favorite, but Heroes and Battlestar Galactic are my two favorite.  I also like Jericho and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

I occasionally watch Numb3rs, the Simpsons, and Wheel of Fortune.

Like Qetesh, I also really dig the Planet Earth stuff.  I have HD cable and an HDTV so that show is so awesome in HD.

I also like some reruns of Seinfeld and Everybody Loves Raymond.

I never got a plotline -directly- from TV or movies, but they most definitely had a big influence.

I think HALASTER is a Cylon.

(PS.  How could I forget BSG?????)

I don't have cable, so I only get CBS, a hispanic channel, and some religious network. As such, most of my viewing is of CBS. Criminal Minds is my favorite show on it, followed up by CSI:LV or CSI:NY. I also like the Unit. I'd like to watch Jericho, but I'm usually putting my son to bed during it.
ack to retirement for the school year.

Another show I'm enjoying a lot lately is The Riches, which airs on FX.

The premise:
A family of Travelers decides to take on the identities of a dead rich family (aptly named The Riches) and have to navigate the strange terrain of gated communities, private schools, law practice, country clubs, etc.
