    New shows I like are The Kill Point, Ice Road Truckers, Mad Men, Burn Notice (only watched the pilot so far) and Damages...I'm also curiously intrigued by The Singing Bee...I don't know why, I don't like karaoke, but for some reason I watch that show.
    Returning favs Rescue Me, Hell's Kitchen, Top Chef, Big Love, Entourage...Weeds will be back shortly.

    I just finished watching season 2 of The Unit and Weeds if that counts for anything.

    Doesn't this just about describe every crime based show in existance?

    I look forward to Hell's Kitchen every summer but thats about it I think for shows I look forward to.

    Shows I'm currently watching (way too many):

    The 4400 (wish I could just forget last season, 'cause this season's been great)
    Mad Men
    The Closer

    Rescue Me
    (though we missed the second show of the season, which is sitting on my computer, waiting to be watched)

    Meadowlands (though I suppose it's technically over, I haven't actually watched the last episode)

    John From Cincinnati
    Saving Grace (Not sure if I like this one yet)
    Army Wives
    Big Brother

    I have Damages recorded, but haven't watched yet.

    BTW, if anyone can point me towards an easy way to move a bit-torrented show (.avi) to DVD, it would be greatly appreciated. I tried some method that took an entire day and ended up with a blank DVD :(

    This summer I'm watching:

    Army Wives
    ...and my extensive DVD collection. Plus whatever I rent from NetFlix or get from Amazon Unbox.

    I don't really "love" anything on TV at this moment. As for "hate"... if I don't like it, I don't watch it, and 99% of TV obviously falls into this category. :p

    I haven't seen "The Closer". But I actually think what you're saying is true of almost EVERY series.

    Every episode of NYPD Blue is almost the same. crime at the beginning, they have some suspects that don't pan out, Sipowitz threatens to beat up some guy, the guy confesses. I enjoy NYPD Blue.

    Every episode of Cold Case is almost the same. Crime at the beginning. The woman goes through some false leads then comes up with the real killer, and they play a montage of some famous song from the time period of the flashbacks along with the cool flipping between the past/present people playing the character. I enjoy Cold Case.

    I rented most of the first season of Law & Order. Every episode is almost the same... same kind of crime show. For some reason I don't really enjoy Law & Order. (But I didn't hate it enough not to give it another try someday possibly -- in the unlikely case I run out of millions of other DVDs I want to rent.)

    Seriously.. I think almost every show is 'the same', and it just depends upon whether that 'sameness' clicks with you or not.

    The Bronx Is Burning (not great but I am compelled to watch. don't know why)
    Mad Men (a little on the slow side but love the period depiction)
    Traveler (no longer
    John From Cincinnati (don't know what is going on but still like it. although 2 eps behind due to vacation)
    Flight of the Conchords ('Britt' and Jemaine. Kiwi humor. heh heh)
    Entourage (getting better than the Medellin eps.)
    Burn Notice (really like)
    Rescue Me (not as good as past seasons)
    Baseball (O's)

    Think I am watch more this summer than last fall/winter/spring. But it is easier with 13 Or less episode seasons.

    Oh yeah. The Company was good. Had to watch it live on holiday. Missed the first half hour.
