Changing of taste of television

In the old days.. ha ha… well, maybe I should say a year or two ago. I use to watch CSI, New York.. Miami  and LA Law.. Boston Legal, were some of our favorites.

Then the news programs … meaning 20/20 or 60 Minutes and Dateline, and if the subject matter is good, I still do watch them…
I loved PBS Waiting for God and Travels with Rick Steeves.. but PBS has been moving them around so much, it is hard to remember it is 5:30 pm on Saturday.  Also love Antique Road Show.. and they have moved that several times..

In our household the one who has the remote is the King.. and he loves…Duck Dynasty, Swamp something or other, Axe men, Gold something or other.. and two I do like.. Pawn Shop and Pickers. The others I take with a grain of salt..  But we seem to jump between A&E and History channel. I am more partial to History channel. Especially when they have shows like Hatfield and McCoy or Men who created History.. and such. And we hit on
Discovery channel, and National Geographic channel from time to time. Cajun Pawn is pretty good to.. funny at least. And Restoration is great to see how Rick can take something rusty and broke and make it like it came off the factory floor.

I guess we are tired of the same old, same old…too many CSI’s and stars leaving L.A. LAW.. and realty shows was a short attention for us.. one year of each singing one was enough for us.. AND WHO CAME UP WITH BABY BOO BOO? Please.. talk about lower the bar.

 Television isn’t like it used to be.. where you wanted to tape shows so you didn’t miss an episode.  Nothing seems to have replace the likes of Seinfeld, Carol Burnett, and some of the mysteries. Or maybe we just changed.

So it is no wonder I don’t recognize any of the new stars.
