I think it must have something to do with relaxing on some sort of pillows/chair/sofa/bed and waiting to be entertained.
I know the feeling of being addicted to crap on tv.
Oh, MTV shows...they have something to hook you even when you hate the show...AHHHHH!!! Catfish, Teen Mom, Teen Wolf...Jersey Whatever....can't get enough Awkward...freakin MTV, they should make a Teen Wolf Mom who dates on the net and parties on the shore...
Maybe you like it because you feel superior to the people on Underemployed,
Maybe you like the ego boost the show gives you.
Maybe because you're bored?
IMHO you need to watch more documentaries, that way you can challenge.change your status quo.
Sh*t I thought you were going say The Walking Dead which is the first and only time I have become brutally obssessed with a TV show.
Friends? Everybody loves Raymond? Seinfeld? any talk show? etc etc etc?
What's the show, you said everything but the name of the show?
