I never watch prime-time TV, only HBO and Showtime for series shows, and A&E, DSC, NGC, and History Channel for great non-fiction programing. That said, you can imagine my suprise when I came across amc's Mad Men. I wanted to check it out so I rented it along with Dexter and Californication. I didn't like Dexter that much, but I really liked Californication, and LOVED Mad Men. I loves me some Donald Draper! So, have you unexpectedly stumbled upon a show and come to love it?

It's funny -- for some reason I didn't like Friends when it first aired and didn't watch it much. I actually became a fan about halfway through and it turned into one of my all time favorites.

I didn't think I would like Desperate Housewives but then when they replaced Golden Girls on Lifetime I got addicted. It got silly after a few seasons though and I don't watch anymore

Yes about Seinfeld and Friends. Didn't think they'd appeal to me as a black person. And I was wrong.

Yes - Hell's Kitchen. I never used to watch it until about 3 seasons ago. The only reason I watched it was because I always saw GR yelling in the commercials and wanted to see what the hell he was yelling about. I got hooked! I am now a donkey!!!

I never watched Frasier in any of the time it was on 'normally.' I caught it once, a few years ago on Lifetime and got hooked. Okay, I have seen them all and sometimes I cannot stomach it, especially the later ones, but I did laugh the first time I saw these in syndication.

I thought it would be stupid as I never liked Frasier on Cheers. I was very surprised.

I felt that way about that 70's show.

I usually don't watch anything but reality TV for the most part, but surprised myself with Flash Forward, I'm hooked! Every week the plot thickens....

Friday Night Lights. I hate football so never expected to love this show! Of course, Kyle Chandler being easy on the eyes helps a lot.

I never saw Sex and the City but finally saw the reruns and I really liked it. I also saw the movie and loved it.
