All of my favorite shows get cancelled in the first year. I have now taken a pact with myself that I will not watch a new show until it gets picked up for the 2nd season.
Recent examples are:
The Playboy Club
Alcatraz
Pan Am
Hostages
Vegas

I have to question you taste on this one. Good Idea but they failed to deliver.

Ah, I was disappointed The Sarah Connor Chronicles dind't get a second season. The cliffhanger endig was rather promising. And we never learned what the liquid metal terminator wanted....

These days, too, you can indulge in some binge watching when you come upon a show "late." I did that with Stargate SG-1 (in DVD) and the Big Bang Theory (reruns). I was very "late" to Stargate, too. I started watching it a year after it ended. Great show.

I have really enjoyed MTV's "Ridiculousness". There is something about folks showing off and failing (but not dying) that is very satisfying...
NBC's "American Ninja Warrior" is fun too. The most memorable moment for me was watching a background bit on a former Olympic snowboarder, who was touting her competitive experience and athletic ability for a full two minutes. When the bell rang, she took two steps and fell in the water, disqualifying her from the competition. She then ran off the course complaining about how cold it was. Hilarious.

As for most hated... I don't waste my time on any, "date then marry" nor "live with a group in a competition" shows.

The only current TV show I watch is Big Bang Theory. Other than that I watch about 30 minutes a day of TV before falling asleep. My viewing generally consists of old sitcoms that I still record (Cheers, MASH, ALF, Hogans Heroes, etc)

The original Dallas. I was too young to have watched it when it aired, but started watching re-runs in my teens (90's) and found the show fascinating.

Likewise, I started watching re-runs of the Andy Griffin show 2 years ago after Andy Griffin passed away and find that to be enjoyable and a very wholesome show. Kind of a glimpse into yesteryear.



Andy Griffith is a classic. Pretty much have seen every episode. Opie and the Bully was one of the best episodes.

I enjoy Hogan's Heroes. I am not sure how it "works", since the reality of the situation was so horrific. Perhaps the idea of bumbling Nazi's with an American pulling the strings is a very appealing escapist fantasy.

I never got that myself. My brothers watched that the whole way, but I never understood. Even now, "too soon".

I am intrigued on shows that take place in the 40-60s. Shows like Pan am, Play boy club, and Vegas show another side to life that I have a hard time believing was true.
