This show is really inspirational, and has helped me lose weight and motivate myself in life. Just don't forget the tissues, because there is no way you're getting through an episode without balling your eyes out!
If you love reality TV, then you will love Survivor. 15 years and 30 seasons speaks for it self really; They do essentially the same thing every season, with a twist or two here and there, but the way that the castaways deal and react to different situations is why the show is so successful I think. I've watched almost every season so far and I'm not bored yet, so their doing something right!
If you watch big brother you will either hate it, or become a super-fan, there's really no in between with this show. It's wrong, in all of the right ways! Love, betrayal, friendships, comedy, cat-fights, competitions, strategy, underdogs, beasts, bros, and a little bit of "ZING!" - it's got it all!
Shameless will make you feel better about your own fucked up life. This show is about a family that was brought up on the 'south side' who all make bad life choices, but are still good people. They somehow made a group of characters who do such shitty things be so like-able. It's hard not to root for them to make it through all of their adversities, but they just keep surprising you with how 'shameless' they really can be.
