TV Show Chooser

The following chart helps determine what shows I like:

Start with 100 points, and make the following adjustments:

-10 Laugh track
+15 Makes you think
-50 Title contains the word "Law" or "Order"
-05 Longer than 30 minutes
-40 Costs extra to watch it
+10 Good music
-25 Close-up forensics
-05 Drama
+05 Comedy
+10 Unique in some way
-30 Purple dinosaur

So it is not surprising that these are currently some of my favorite shows:

The Simpsons
McLaughlin Group
The Office
American Idol
Best Week Ever
Pardon The Interruptrion
VH1 Top 20 Countdown
Everybody Hates Chris

Fox - 2 shows
NBC - 2
VH1 - 2
ESPN - 1
UPN - 1

An interesting experiment would be to put some random shows through the above formula and try watching the high scorers to see if I like them.

Mike and I do not watch a lot of television together- if it gets negative points from him, it probably gets positive ones from me- except that dinosuar one.
