Star Trek: The Next Generation. I remember my mom watching this when it was new, and now FI fills the DVR with re-runs. I get that it’s a good show, but I’m not impressed. I can tolerate sports but not sci-fi.

I watch Batman, Superman and Spider-Man… and I no think Mrs. Bee likey.

Anything on HGTV drives me crazy… I actually have to leave the house.

I guess it’s not a TV show but my fiance loves basketball – the Celtics in particular – and I hate basketball!  I honestly am a pretty good girl in regards to sports, I love watching football and the Red Sox but I was brought up on hockey so basketball just bugs me!  

  He’s pretty good with watching great girly TV shows but he HATES america’s next top model sooo much. And even moreso the day long marathons that are my favorite! ha

My FI watches the news. But not just once, over and over on different channels. He will watch the same news story 10 times a day. It drives me bananas.

Ok DH and I just started subscribing to Netflix and you can watch complete seasons of tv shows instantly online, so he watches them on tv through his Xbox Live account. It’s awesome because I can watch all my silly shows while he’s at work, but when he comes home, it’s ALL SeaQuest for about 4 or 5 hours. I don’t mind cuz I’m usually working on something and minding my business, but then when i want to watch something else with him, he shoots me his puppy dog face and is like "but what about SeaQuest?" I love him, but it drives me crazy. Oh well, he def puts up with more of my tv habits though so I shouldn’t really complain 😀

He likes to watch Star Trek reruns sometimes and it drives me crazy!  He’s also been known to watch a little WWE, and I really can’t stand that.  

Other than that, for the most part, we like all the same shows.

I can’t stand all those reality shows on MTV or VH1…especially the Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. My husbands FLOVES them. I try to watch them but all that fake drama gets on my last nerve. Thank goodness we have another TV in the house.

I cannot stand aqua teen hunger force or a lot of the other shows on Adult Swim. Robot Chicken is kinda funny though.

Family Guy was funny the first couple of times I see an episode….but wow…it is on ALL THE TIME and they always play the same ones over and over.

More votes here for Adult Swim & Family Guy. I could easily do without ever seeing another episode of COPS as well!

Oh I love Family Guy and Robot Chicken! LOL My guy would watch ESPN all day if I would let him. When it gets to the point where I’ve heard the same sports story over and over it’s time to change. He also loves to watch Fox News and I cannot stand Bill O’Reilly, Greta Van Susteren (really someone should tell that woman to move her lips when she speaks!), and Shawn Hannity. But he hates my silly shows, as he calls them, reality and anything on HGTV. So we usually compromise and watch Food Network, Discovery, or Travel.

We pretty much both like/watch the same shows but  he LOVES Seinfield . . i don’t mind it in small quantities but when he starts quoting it. . it gets to be  alittle too much

@SaraBMarried: LOL! My SO LOVES Seinfeld too! Right now we’re on the road for his work and staying in our fifth wheel. The cable at this RV park isn’t the best, as far as the picture quality goes. Seinfeld comes on the only channel that isn’t COLOR. He is so obsessed that we watch it in black and white! And yes I agree the quoting is a little much…or the fact that I won’t know what’s going on and he can tell me what the whole episode is about! Just today he said that it is the all-time best tv sitcom. LOL

We actually have very similar TV tastes. The Star Trek complaints crack me up, because we’ve been watching Star Trek: Voyager online, we went through the first 6 seasons in about 3 weeks, and we’ve been watching Star Trek movies. I never knew I liked it this much! He loves to watch basketball, but I actually enjoy it, so none of his habits drive me crazy. I bet if we had cable though, instead of antenna tv that things would be MUCH different.
