To be honest, I'm not much interested in anything that's on at present.
One of my good pals is the same. I pointed out to him one day that almost ALL the actors he watches on TV are now demised! (He used to always be watching something called GOLD?) this was a few years ago.

But it was all Last of the Summer, Dad's Army, Open all Hours, stuff like that.

I only see selective bits of UK TV now (and don't have time to watch more than I do even though I can access it on the net via VPN)

I disagree there is not much worth watching on these days. I am currently enjoying some super stuff put out on the BBC.

I have a short attention span where TV is concerned so prefer half hour, light hearted stuff which seems lacking these days. Most of the comedies these days seem more slap stick which I can't abide

Much prefer a good book to be honest

For me its not telly or books. Its both! Real books and books on kindle. I've downloaded another 4 today. Read a whole book today ... half while sunbathing and half in the bath. I multitask all the time!

I have TV on all the time I Am working online. My job would be very boring if I didn't have something else to listen to at the same time. I oust on this forum while I'm waiting for stuff to upload to the web!

And my viewing tastes are eclectic. Anything but soaps. I detest soaps.

Current programs Criminal Minds love it.
I remember Fawlty Towers, Monty Python AND Benny Hill...official dinosaur. Nowadays repeats of Law and Order:SVU, South Beach Towing and Mysteries of the Museum. Otherwise I read far more than watching TV.

Something I would like to watch sometime is "Orange is the New Black". The book was entertaining and the show was a hit. I'm just not even sure what Netflix is, not very techy.

I loved 'Orange is the new black'!
I hope there's a new series coming out soon!

PS: netflix is a streaming website that you can subscribe to. In the UK it's 5.99 per month and you can watch loads of films and tv programs online. You can watch it on your laptop or smart tv or wii (I'm sure there are more).
I really like netflix as we don't have a tv connection
