I Love Cable TV

I'm linking up with Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn for Talk To Us Tuesday.  There are no rules! Join us.

I am loving having cable.

The fact that I can record all of my shows while watching TV with my husband has been life changing!  Now...instead of spending hours in my desk chair watching TV, I  can now sit in the living room watching TV.  I also don't have to pay for Bravo episodes anymore.

I've had cable for 4 days and I'm already addicted to a show.  It's called Property Brothers.  Have you seen this?  Twin brothers, Jonathan and Drew show people their dream home and then dash their dreams when the home is out of their price range.  Then they show them TWO homes that belong to hoarders/people that just skipped town and encourage them to buy one of them with the promise that Jonathan (the licensed contractor) can fix it up and make it their dream home!


I like what they come up with and the reveal is always very inspiring but I really love to see what shithole they come up with for these people to look at.  And on the last episode that I watched...there was a bidding war for the shithole!

These two are also very good looking.  I like looking at them.

So yesterday, I sat down with the remote and fell into a giant hole of Kardashian.  I have a question.  Does E play Kardashian shows 24/7?  Should we change the name to Kardashian TV?

I'm not a fan of the Kardashian family.  I think they are celebrities with no reason to be celebrities.  With that said....I really like Chole and Kumar.  Wait, is that his name?   Anyway, I've seen a couple episodes of their show and it was slightly entertaining.

Yesterday, I got sucked in.  I watched 4 episodes of Kourtney and What's Her Face Disgrace New York.  This is not the real title.  I can't remember what it's called.

So.....I'm guessing that The Hump and Kim are already married in the episodes that I've watched because Kim keeps flashing her ring.  Having watched these 4 episodes, I can completely understand why Kim's married didn't last.

The Hump married Kim and then moved into a HOTEL with her sister, her drunk ass husband and a toddler.  What the heck?  Why can't they get their own apartment?  Or hotel room?  Then, The Hump isn't allowed to have any friends over.  Seriously?  He's not a child.  He had a life before Kim.  THEN, The Hump gets a paid gig making an appearance in Toronto.  But then....he gets in trouble for going, when she was on a trip with her sister anyway.  THEN she runs off to Dubai for no reason.

No wonder The Hump was acting out and Kim wants to divorce him.  The Hump should be as happy as a pig in shit that he doesn't have to deal with her crap anymore.  If this is how she treats her husband....she has no business being married to anyone.

Also....the story line of Kourntey becoming a crazy coupon lady and buying tons of toilet paper and mayo when they live in a HOTEL and never cook?  It was ridiculous.

So tell me......what is your favorite cable show that I should be watching?


  1. I don't watch any of those "reality" shows, but the one with the brothers sounds interesting. I used to watch a lot of HGTV stuff, but then it all got to be kind of the same and I got bored with it.

  2. I don't watch many shows like this, but I do love Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. None of the other real housewives series though. I just love Lisa, the British lady! Have you seen it?

  3. The only reality show I watch is Real Housewives of Orange County and Atlanta.--- I am super addicted.

    BUT, I do love me some Pan Am and New Girl.-- Addicting, as well.

  4. I thought the same thing about the coupon episode. They have tons of money--why do they need coupons???

  5. I love the Property Brothers! I can't stand the Kardashians, so I choose to waste my personal time on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Orange County, and New Jersey. These b*tches are ridic!

  6. We spend a lot of time watching Discovery channel shows. I do like watching Clean House on occasion--it's on the Style network.

  7. Property Brothers sounds pretty good. I love just about anything on HGTV!

  8. I don't understand the Kardashians either. I pretty much use cable to watch old Frasier re-runs. lol

  9. Oh Cable...how I miss you :( I will especially miss you this weekend during the super bowl :( I will either be streaming it on the laptop or listening on the radio while putting getting the kids ready for bed. Where will the hubs be you ask?? relaxing and having fun at a friends house....oh cable I miss you :(

  10. SO now that you have Bravo, you have got to start watching Andy Cohen's late night show - What's Happening Live - SO FUN!!!


  11. We had to cut back our satellite tv...so now we don't get a lot of shows. BOO.

  12. I'm mostly into Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on the Food Network and also, any of those Auction Hunter type shows. It's so fun to see them bid on forgotten lockers and see what sorts of treasures are inside!

  13. I'm a Kardashianaholic and I question my sanity everytime I get sucked into a Kardashian marathon...and M questions our marital status. He can't stand them. I realize they are famous for being famous, but their drama is what lures me in.

    Who marries someone for 72 days? Oh, wait...maybe Brittany Spears, but she's so white trash, that's to be expected.

    I was just pissed b/c I cried while watching their wedding episode. I felt betrayed and lied to.

    Oh, and Ryan Seacrest is the producer of everything Kardashian...and he basically owns E...so, that's probably why it's all Kardashian all day.

    Congrats on cable!

  14. I can't stand those whores. Why are all those K sisters famous again? It makes me mad. I just can't watch them.

    My fav cable tv show? Oh gosh. Ummm...I like Sister Wives. It's on hiatus right now but I watch it religiously. Have you ever watched Hung? That may be an HBO show but if you think it's a show about a big penis, then you'd be correct! HILARIOUS!

    Ringer and Revenge. Those are my shows. And Gossip Girl. Oh and American Idol.

    Thanks for linking up! Love your face!

  15. I think I've watched on show on the kardys and Bruce Jenner scared me and I haven't been back.

  16. Honey loves E! I cannot stand to hear their voices because you're right, they are famous for no reason!

    I still don't watch much TV, I do have all of the latest episodes of Revenge sitting on the DVR, maybe that's what I'll do if I can't sleep again tonight.

    Thanks for linking up, we love you like cellulite loves my ass!

  17. I can't stand the Kardashians... I refuse to watch their shows or buy anything that they endorse. Period.

    As far as what I watch.... Game of Thrones, Dexter, Weeds, Diary of A Secret Call Girl, Hung, Tori and Dean, True Blood and a few other things on non cable tv.

  18. bahahah Kourtney and What's Her Face Disgrace New Yor <---- best alternate title EVER. I will admit to watching it when nothing else is on but then again I like trash tv :)

  19. Oh I want to watch that house one now! I love House Hunters and well almost anything on HGTV- otherwise I stick with the basics.

  20. A certain you-know-who is going to be so proud to hear that you watched the Kardashian's show. I can't watch it. It's too weird for me.

    Our newest addiction is Impractical Jokers on TruTV (not sure if you get that channel or not). It is laugh outloud funny. Every episode I have to pause it b/c I"m crying from laughing so hard.

    We also watch New Girl, Gossip Girl, and Once Upon A Time (although that's on ABC).

    And then, as you know, Craig has his list of shows, but I won't go there.

  21. I LOVE Property Brothers, that's my favorite HGTV show and Disaster DIY.


    It's on VH-1 and it's basically The Real Housewives of The Mafia.

    It's the best thing ever. They get in actual fistfights! It's on season 2, but I'm sure they rerun it enough that you can catch up.

  23. I LOVE Property Brothers for 2 reasons 1. They stay on budget ALWAYS (unless the homeowners up the budget themselves) 2. It is based out of Toronto - so I like to think that maybe one day the Boy and I will call the Property Brothers and they will find us our very own shithole and turn it into our dream home. Ahh, dreaming! Enjoy!!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
