New shows that didn't make it.
NCIS-NO: I might have watched if it they had hired an actor not an idiot as the star. For what it's worth, NCIS-LA also failed to gain our interest.
STALKER: too creepy for women.
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER: Just didn't hold interest past the second episode.
GRACEPOINT: We suffered through the original British TV show and this one lasted five entire minutes.
UTOPIA: A show condemned to death by deliberately casting people who can't get along.
Returning shows and some new shows that have dropped to the "Pleasantly boring" category. I watch them with Leanna only because it gives us something to talk about; I would not watch them if she did not.
NCIS-DC: Been on too long.
FLASH: Only because Leanna likes it.
ARROW: Long since tired of it.
ONCE UPON A TIME: ran out of worthwhile stories long ago.
SLEEPY HOLLOW: I read a book while it's on and look up when Leanna says something, then use the back button two or three times.
AGENTS OF SHIELD: I never got into the overall mythos, but sometimes there is a fun minute.
RESURRECTION: We are going to bank this show and binge watch it at Christmas.
HAWAII FIVE OH: I think we're both just barely watching. It could have been a good show but it's just tiresome.
The few we actually find enjoyable to watch (the last survivors of "Class A Television" and some new hits).
SCORPION: The hit of the new season.
GRIMM: The favorite of returning shows but it hasn't returned yet. Wah!
CASTLE: Annoyed me when the writers wrecked the wedding, but I still enjoy the show immensely.
SCANDAL: I just wish they had stayed neutral on politics (Union Party, Federal Party, never take sides on an issue) but the people are fun.
CSI-VEGAS: I liked all of these shows and wish we still had the other two.
FOREVER: I really enjoyed this until Petrick ruined it for me complaining about plot loopholes.
MYSTERIES OF LAURA: a true pleasure to watch. I think the "girl detective whose ex-husband cheated on her" script was used up by the excellent TAXI BROOKLYN.
LOTTERY: An interesting premise that hasn't been fully explored.
THE 100: An interesting premise that hasn't been fully explored.
NASHVILLE: A special treat that we save for Sunday lunchtime.
GREY'S ANATOMY: one of a few shows that get watched on the night they air, but it is getting tiresome.
REIGN: While we are tired of the teen angst, it's still somehow very watchable.
SHARKTANK: Our favorite reality show.
HOTEL IMPOSSIBLE, HOTEL HELL, BAR RESCUE: Interesting business reality shows. Class-B television.
Guilty pleasures I enjoy watching alone:
GOOD WIFE: well written and acted.
SPECIAL VICTIMS: too creepy for Leanna, I like the actors in it.
BLACKLIST: I'll watch Spader read a phone book if the cute FBI chick is turning the pages for him.
BLUEBLOODS: well-written show that handles political issues fairly.
GOLD RUSH, ICE ROAD TRUCKERS, DEADLIEST CATCH, NAKED & AFRAID, KITCHEN NIGHTMARES, RESTAURANT IMPOSSIBLE, HUNGRY INVESTORS, MYSTERY DINERS: Only after Leanna goes to sleep.
