I don't watch those shows religiously, but sometimes, if I've got a lot on my mind, I like to kind of turn the brain off a while and watch a couple of hours of them. It seems to help since no brain is required.
That's not what I'm referring to. I was talking about people who LOVE that crap and actually think it's great TV. Heck, I'll leave Pawn Stars, American Pickers, or FaceOff on in the background all the time. However, when I want to turn my brain off for a while, I like to watch reruns of comedies/sitcoms like "Scrubs", "That 70's Show", "How I Met Your Mother", "Two-and-a-half Men", "Big Bang Theory", "Seinfeld", "30 Rock", ect.
