    I did a few then went back and removed them all.
    They just don't "get it" and view it as a welcome to open the door and spam me with crap I'm not interested in.

    At one point I had "liked" a show and it worked well, I got reminders that it was on and new vs. a repeat, and links to behind the scenes pieces. However I then did the same to another and it was nothing but spam for other shows on the same network, after that, no show gets "liked" anymore.

    I could be more granular as to the settings for the "like" but I shouldn't have to jump through hoops to do that.

    I certainly agree with you. I have "unliked" quite a few shows that take advantage of posting....But I find it so easy to unlike something that I don't worry about it until they abuse it.

    Walking Dead is another good page that I like. They post some great interviews that I don't see other places.

    If I did want to follow a show's posts I'd probably just subscribe to their feed. Can't you do that without liking them? ( I'm not certain}

    Part of why I don't "like" things is that it causes you to spam other people's feeds with the fact that you liked something.

    Yes, Like and Subscribe are independent, have been for like a year now, you can do either without the other. (But by default, Like also gives you a partial Subscribe, and many people never see that they can do them separately.)

    It hasn't done that in a long time.

    I follow many of the people on Hoarders. They let me know when A&E makes last minute changes to the schedule which seems to happen all the time.

    I get spam about what my friends like all the time.

    What we're seeing now is paid ads by companies that are being fronted by listing a friend that likes that product (which IMO is more annoying). Any new things they like seem to be confined to the feed on the right-side column.

    I like a ton of TV shows and movies on FB.

    There is sometimes spam when they want to sell a season or movie on bluray/DVD, but often I get to see some links or info about the show that I wouldn't otherwise know about, so it's a good way of keeping in touch with the TV show/movie.
