Do you have a TV show that you watch but you can't quite figure out why?
I don't mean a show that everyone says is bad but you like, I just mean a show that you honestly don't know why you watch it for whatever reason. Whether it's because it's a guilty pleasure, or it has sub plots you enjoy even if the main plot is way out of your zone, or if the show is just so terrible you watch it to laugh at it

So because I'm starting this topic it's my turn to confess first

For me this show is ABC Family's "Switched At Birth"

I'm not sure why I watch this show, but I do. I think I find it funny that any and every time it seems like they've run out of ideas to make the character's lives miserable they throw in something that is actually quite normal which makes it work. And the character's are amusing by how inconsistent they are and yet at the same time their behavior really doesn't change all that much

Well that's it for me, anyone else?

I'd say may the best house win. I have no idea why I watch it, it's only now and again but it's something I watch with the family but I tend to cringe if it's something I dislike and the idea of other people bouncing on my bed, going through & messing around with my stuff. Again, I really don't know why I watch it.

The show I recently got into but still not sure why I enjoy it so much is Duck Dynasty. They are absolutely nuts and I have no idea if it's staged or genuine, cos it seems to lean to one but then something happens that makes me convinced it is genuine despite it being too good for it to be caught on camera.

For me it's probably Hard Core Pawn.

It's the same thing every time. Someone tries to sell something, the pawn broker gives them a low-ball price, the customer gets pissed and rages and then gets thrown out of the store. It's the same thing every time yet, I keep watching it.

For me its any of the Discovery network shows like Gold Rush, American loggers, that car modding show, etc.

None of the people on these shows are really likeable and every little problem that comes up in the show gets super overdramatized or the producers stage a situation to try to create some tension.

*in slow dramatic narrator voice*
"Will they meet their deadline before nightfall??"

"With *insert name here* out of the game will they finish in time??"

Yeah... I usually just flip channels when there's nothing to watch and it ends up on these types of shows.

There's a US show that's started up on Dave recently called "Storage Hunters". It's not entertaining, it's not intellectual, it's repetitive and over-acted, but for some reason if I'm channel hopping then I don't seem to hop on any further. It's utter madness! SOMEBODY SAVE ME!

I watched a show called Storage Wars (which I am assuming is roughly the same thing) for a long time.
I despise it.
I do, however, enjoy this video of a guy on the show getting incredibly ripped off trying to sell a lot of Magic the Gathering cards.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMJq3r3LTws

The buyer offers a coin flip. $700 if seller wins and $600 if buyer wins.
It doesn't matter who wins, because the Black Lotus that he got is worth $1600 minimum by itself.
Just look at all the faces of the people who know that the guy is getting completely ripped off.
Priceless.
