Thumbs up Best show on Dish/Cable

Hands-down, it is MXC! I'm glued to the TV every time it comes on. I can't get enough of this stupidity, and laugh so hard I end up crying.

LOL - I'm surprised at you Pete. I'd expect you to be above that sort of thing.

(off the record, I have my tivo set to record them all. My favorite "game" is the horse races; not a blood-free shin in the lot).

I didn't know you had a sense of humor. Glad to see you do.

never heard of MXC,

Battle Star Galactica (Fridays on SCFI channel) is the only show I will not miss or tape if I do.

MXC - yeah it's funny because you have to wonder what the original dialog was.

Reminds me of a British show they had when I was growing up "It's a Knockout" was basically the same thing but on a grander scale. Lots of people doing stupid stunts, falling down, etc...

The announcer on that show had this infectious giggle.. I can still hear it rining in my ears...

I've never seen it, is it on Spike? I don't have a favorite. Do like the Sci fi. Then there's in the Kitchen with Bob, on Sundays on QVC. I might be spending too much money there, they sent me a birthday card this year!

Yep. Used to be "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge" but they officially changed the name a season or two ago.

Anyone that likes it should check out Hey Spring of Trivia as well. "Real" dialogue, but the same crazy Japanese take on humor.

I don't know if I could pick a single favorite show. I like a lot of the stuff on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network, but I hardly ever stay up that late.

sorry guys - watched like 20 minutes of that show and couldn't bear it any more. Brits trying to pretend to be southern white trash is a little too close to home...

We just had our Dish Network satellite installed today; ditching Comcast Cable, too much money. Now we have to relearn the channels!

Favs, hmm? Family Guy, Simpsons, Futurama, MXC. I used to like American Choppers, but my hubby watches EVERY rerun. But I do still have a crush on Paul, Sr.

He's about an ornery cuss isn't he? We usually start watching something else when repeats go on too long. We won't watch them twice.

American Choppers: I like it a lot. But I've noticed a real irritating trend that drives me crazy. From this show, to CSI, to Extreme Makeover and countless other shows-- why must they fake such a high level of antagonism between the characters. It's like they're trying to genetically implant stress in what would otherwise be a great show. Some amount would be natural, but these shows go way beyond natural. For once, I'd like to see a cool bike built without a tantrum being thrown about.

Chappelle's Show has got to be one of the funniest shows ever. By far my favorite show.
