Very jealous that the Brits here get a TV adaptation of Little Dorrit:

I watched Lost in Austen last night (UK) and it was quite fun. 'Mr Darcy' did a good impression of Colin Firth. I'm waiting in anticipation for the 'wet shirt' scene maybe next week. :D

My secret guilty pleasure is The View. I record it on our DVR every day! I just love it!

Also, I'm obsessed with E! and Bravo's reality TV show's, esp. The Real Housewives. I really hope the New York ladies make it back for a second season! I loved that show.

Yes, I have very juvenile TV tastes! Hey, this is the girl busted by my advisor in grad school for listening to Brittany Spears! :o

I thought it was very funny. The characters are so over the top. Looking forward to the next instalment as well. Wonder what the ending will be...

Interesting, Shirley Manson, lead singer of Garbage is now one of the actors on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". Garbage has some really good songs.
