Prison Break, 24, Friends, Desperate Housewives, Lost, House, Heroes, Grey’s Anatomy, Family Guy… are popular TV shows among my carefully-picked-scientific-sample (aka my Facebook friends)

What makes you addicted to a certain TV show? Suspense, relationships and humor seem to be essential for the recipe of success. Of course, some shows get more viewers than others. Unfortunately, many great shows get off the air due to poor ratings (I must take a minute here to express my sadness towards the cancellations of masterpieces such as Arrested Development, Wonderfalls, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, the Class, etc.)

Now, I would like to know what makes you watch a TV show? Why a show gets more ratings than another? Naturally, i would guess that it is the storyline, the writing staff, the actors,…

Anyhoo, I thought it would be nice to tell you some secrets about the TV industry. Well, maybe not so secret… since you may all know that the main goal is to make money. Indeed, those TV people won’t care if the show is critically acclaimed or not, they just want the millions of viewers (so that the millions $ from the advertisers come too).

By the way, is it the mid-terms now? Which mean that you are all searching things to do on the Internet besides studying right? Well, how about I share with you my 2 favorite spots to efficiently waste my time?
Yes, there, you can watch all your favorite TV shows (awesome!)

Furthermore, I would like to suggest you my favorites of this season
Ugly Betty, The Office, Scrubs, Entourage… and special mention for Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies, wow, finally a show that is different, so creative! If you liked Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain and Wonderfalls, you shouldn’t miss this new show. I love the unexpectedness, the impact of the narrator, the camera movements, the colors, the light, the bizarreness, the cleverness (hope that it won’t get canceled because of those who can’t enjoy all the wit)
take a look here where suddenly, one of the supporting characters starts to sing, yes like in a musical! “Hopelessly devoted to you”

so surprising, because all the viewers were absorbed in a murder case, the leading male role can revive dead people and the leading female role is a living dead (hum, u better watch the show to not find all this awkward hehe)

ok, that’s it for now, feel free to comment and share your TV favorites too!
