Confessional Friday: {Link Up}

Inlinkz and I have gone around and around lately, SO if the link-up tool isn't working, please just leave your link in the comments!

Today’s topic is one of my favorites because, as a soon-to-be mama in her third trimester, I have been doing lots of sitting on the couch lately. Enter: reality TV, bad TV, cheesy murder mystery TV (i.e. Lifetime), and just about any other genre of TV you can think of.

Here are a few of my very favorite silly, low-on-substance TV shows:

Real Housewives of Orange County or Real Housewives of New Jersey
Both are equally obnoxious in their own special ways, but I can’t seem to tear myself away.

True Blood
The acting leaves much to be desired. The plot? Well, it’s ridiculous. But this vampire/werewolf/shifter-filled HBO production is one of my very favorite ways to spend Sunday nights with my beau. Bring on the Hep-V!

Ghost Adventures
This show is pure comedy. From host Zack’s overly gelled hair, to the bevy of horrendous Ed Hardy t-shirts worn by his camera crew posse, it’s a hot, spooky mess. And, I love it.

Pretty Little Liars
Love, love, love this show! My SIL Stephanie turned me on to it and I can’t watch the episodes fast enough. If it’s a crime to love cotton-candy drama, then lock me up for life.

Stephen and I were so happy that this Cinemax show was renewed for another season next year. This one probably has a bit more grit than the others on this list, but the plot is laughably over the top.

Now it’s your turn. What are your favorite “zero-calorie” shows?


  1. Oh my gosh, I love Ghost Adventures too! When they freak out after feeling something "touch" them or hearing a noise the camera can't pick up. HAHAHAHA.

    But I do enjoy the history/folklore aspect of the show. That part is always interesting.

  2. I love PLL and True Blood, but I wouldn't ever have considered them for my list of trashy TV. Hmm, what does that say about me?!

  3. I have to admit Ghost Adventures is one of my guilty pleasures....glad I'm not the only one!

  4. Pretty Little Liars was on my list too!!! Love it!!! It is so addicting!

  5. I love Vampire Diaries! It's a little embarrassing to admit, but it is such a good show - you never know what's going to happen!

  6. True Blood is getting a little ridiculous...but I will continue to watch it! Love ghost adventures, they will play some static over and over again until you think you hear a word haha! Great production if you ask me! Happy Friday

  7. We love Revenge, Dexter, and Downton Abbey.

    I like Project Runway and HGTV Design Star.

  8. I am obsessed with Pretty Little Liars :) you need to add Nashville to your list! It's great.


What'cha got?
