My Most Embarrassing Post Yet...

I have watched a LOT of crap TV in my day. I was curious, though, just how much of it I had watched. I went to www.jumptheshark.com to compile my list, so if a show wasn't on there, it didn't make my list even if I watched it. I didn't include news programs and I probably omitted a bunch of cartoons I watched, too. The rule was, I had to remember watching the show at least twice. Some of these, you must understand, were not shows I normally watched, but I may have caught them a few times.

The list is an utter embarrassment, but before you make fun of me, just remember I had the balls to share this humiliating information. I'm sure there are some of you out there who could put together a list like this equally as shameful.

Wow. You have a lot of time on your hands. First, for watching those shows and, second, for writing them all down.

cooper green said...

I can't believe you never watched Taxi:
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
"What does yellow mean?"
"Slow down"
Way better than that crap you were watching.

Pavel Chekov said...

Ahhh...BJ & The Bear. You're a braver man than I.

Ms. Laaw-yuhr said...

Christ on crutches, that is a hell of a list!

The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch: said...

Are the shows embarrassing or merely the fact that you took the time to compile this list?

I can sing the themesong of New Zoo Review to you this very minute.

GETkristiLOVE said...

That's a whole lotta crap... so maybe explains your infatuation with poop?

Amy said...

Laff-a-lympics ROCKED.

Skylers Dad said...

Who among has not appreciated the fine Larry Storch in F-Troop?

Dale said...

When the term jump the shark finally jumps the shark, I hope I'm there! Didn't you have time for 'Square Pegs'? Tsk tsk.

Johnny Yen said...

I was just talking about Hello Larry in the last week! I was telling my stepdaughter about how Maclean Stevenson left MASH to have his own show-- Hello Larry-- and how awful it was.

My stepdaughter has taken to watching some of the bad early eighties sitcoms on Nick at Night, particularly The Facts of Life. It's pretty damned funny, actually. Her watching, that is. Certainly not the show.

The Starland Vocal Band (their sole hit was Afternoon Delight) had a summer replacement show that was excruciatingly bad.

Coaster Punchman said...

Dude, that' a lot of TV. I think you should have narrowed it down to having watched fairly regularly. But you didn't ask me, did you?

I'm going to do the list now.

Rudy said...

I used to watch CHiPS. I'm ashamed of myself. Wonder Woman though? That show was tits. Big, red, white and blue tits.
