I don't watch anything too religiously but the shows I catch on a semi regular basis are as follows.
The Daily Show
I occasionally will catch an episode of
Law & Order
and a couple others.
There are some shows on NatGeo that are pretty good, such as Taboo and Locked Up Abroad.
A&E has a few that I tune into, like First 48.
The BBCA and HBO also ran a show called Little Britain that I could not get enough of. It was hilarious. The Catherine Tate Show was good too.

I've started to lose interest with QI... used to be a big fan, but of late I find it hard to sit through an episode. Mock the Week and Have I Got News for you are favourites though.

Brits may not hit it out of the park every time, but you're better on average at comedy and working it with drama. Maybe it's because your shows don't always try to run for a long time, or the theater influence, I don't know. They're remaking Being Human here and I'd prefer to see the original British version.

Depends what sort of comedy you mean, Kat. I would happily take Frasier over some of our sitcoms, but at the same time I prefer A Bit of Fry and Laurie to some US comedy.
I'd say both sides are equally good, but British comedy is generally more subtle and racier.

Then again I like The Inbetweeners, maybe because my teenage years are closer to that than whatever happens in Skins.
I think I fall firmly into the target group for Being Human. Still living in a house share and being around a the same age as the actors (can't say characters as one is dead and the other has been a vamp since WW1). Plus I'm a fan of supernatural fiction so all ties in nicely.
Some TV is just British as can only be made within the British creative environment. Mostly US remakes of UK TV shows are from sitcoms and with humour being so different it doesn't away work. Still, I would be interested to see the US take on Being Human.

Anyone excited about The Pacific on HBO - My DVR is set for this Sunday.

Just watched The Pacific. It was awesome. If you enjoyed Band of Brothers you have to check it out.

I just geeked out on Season 1 of Being Human on Space, from the BBC I think. Anyway it rocked. How can you beat a werewolf, vampire and ghost living together?
