Top 10 Guilty Pleasure TV Shows (With GIFS!)
Real Housewives of New Jersey marathon on Bravo? Looks I’ve got my next 8 hours planned!I’ll be honest. I am somewhat of a tv binger. Between Netflix and Bravo marathons, I just can’t help getting caught up in a series, and can’t stop watching until I reach the end. The thing is, I never intend on getting caught up in these ridiculous tv shows, but after 5 minutes, I’m completely hooked, screaming “No she didn’t!” at my television. After consulting with other tv junkies, I’ve come up with the top 10 guiltiest pleasures on television.
1) THE REAL HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISE
I’m pretty sure this an obvious one. Something about the mix of designer handbags and table flipping drama equals pure television magic. Everyone has their favorite group of ladies. Mine are OC and New Jersey, obvi.
2) HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO
I have to admit, I’ve only seen 3 or 4 episodes of the Toddlers in Tiaras spin off, but from what I’ve seen, it’s obvious why people watch this one. Not only is little Alana ridiculously cute (in a total redneck way), the show also makes people feel better about their own dysfunction.
3) THE BACHELOR
Nothing makes single gals feel better than seeing a gorgeous woman ugly crying after not receiving the final rose. Plus the catfights are pretty epic also.
4) THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
Thanks to Netflix, I really got into this show last year. My husband accused me of only watching the show because of the guys. Totally not true! While it may be cheesy, I’m a sucker for vampire human love triangles. (Just check out my Twilight collection) But I guess Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley don’t hurt either.
5) KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS
I basically watch this show because the Kardashian klan is gorgeous and I try to steal their makeup ideas. And laugh at Kim’s ridiculous cry face.
6) PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
Should I be ashamed I’m totally obsessed with this high school drama show. Because I’m not. Sorry, not sorry.
7) GAME OF THRONES
So, technically, Game of Thrones is an award winning show, and might not fall under the traditional “guilty pleasure” category. But with all the nudity, violence, and incest, I feel more guilty when I watch this show than any other on the list!
8) LAW AND ORDER FRANCHISE
Nothing could make me skip class in college like a good Law and Order marathon. Sure, themes of rape or homicide might sound intense, but I find a L&O marathon very soothing right before bed. Also, can I be bffs with Detective Goren?
9) CATFISH THE TV SHOW
I first got hooked on Catfish the documentary. When I heard it was becoming a tv show, I was pumped. It’s so hard not to yell at your tv while watching this one. Sorry honey, but a GQ model is probably not in an exclusive online relationship with you.
10) THE HILLS
Okay, technically this one is no longer airing new episodes, but they still play reruns on MTV! This was my absolute favorite show ever in college, and left us with priceless one liners like the one below.
