    Do you still beat your wife? Only answer "yes" or "no."

    I wish I could help, but these things are always inaccurate and useless. I only like Survivor and Big Brother and the rest (so far) suck. I like Blind Date a little, but I hate the Real World and the rest. I love many informative television shows, but I hate Trading Spaces, and the list goes on.

    I might give "competitive reality shows" a 5 because I like Survivor and Big Brother, but if someone would assume that I watch all shows of that type like a mindless, drooling, automaton, they would be wrong. It's the same for every category. "I see here that you gave 'comedic films' a 5, so that means you loved 'Freddy Got Fingered' just as much as every other comedy." Sure it does, sure.

    If they had a list of TV shows and you could rate each one, now that would be accurate for the most part, but even that would be off a little since you might love some episodes of a series and hate most of the others.

    that's how I felt random t, it's really trivial to answer "comedic films" or any other broad wide open category and give a fair description of what you like with 1 number, not sure what exactly the purpose of this was but I gave it a shot, ha


    oh and ps

    Thanks

    Thanks for the responses. I'm actually wanting to know if there is a relationship between viewers of reality television and documentary film. The movie categories such as comedy and sci-fi are just there to be there. The reality categories are probably too broad as well, but thank you for the feedback. Everyone else please feel free to comment.

    I like both, but as you could tell, I'm one of those people who likes selected shows and movies from almost every category (except musicals, super-dramas, drug movies, super-gore movies, and so on), so I don't think I would be a good person to go by.

    Speaking of reality TV, I especially liked it when CSPAN put on radio shows and you could watch what happened during the commercials. They did that with Imus too, but then he went to MSNBC and they don't usually show the behind-the-scenes stuff, so it's not as interesting as it was on CSPAN.

    Not sure how you want me to answer these. I thought it was 1 thru 5, 5 as being best. Eh, I'll answer honestly.

    B. Situation comedies (Sitcoms) -I like comedies a lot...hard to say how many times a week. Maybe a couple a week.

    C. Fly on the wall reality shows (for example Real World, Cops, Blind Date) - As much as I can find them. Every one.

    D. Competitive reality shows (for example Survivor, American Idol, the Bachelor)
    - As much as I can find them. Every one.

    E. Hour long dramas -Not that much.

    F. Informative television shows (The Crocodile Hunter, Trading Spaces, Behind the Music) -A lot. Whenever I can find it and it doesn't interupt Survivor, People's Court..etc..

    3. How many times do you normally watch the following in a two week period?

    A. Science fiction films -Rare.

    B. Documentary films -ALOT.

    C. Comedic films -Sometimes.

    4. What is your age? -33

    All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
