I binge-watch Graham Norton on youtube once in a while.

Other than that, I seem to have given up on tv entirely. Need to reconsider that. A friend just got a cheapie $12 inside antennae and says she picks up 10 stations. She is on the 8th floor of a building with nothing between her and CN Tower, but it's worth giving it a try.

Outside of sports, only three regular series:
The Good Wife, Modern Family, Elementary.
MSNBC occasionally. That's about it.

There are plenty of old TV shows on youtube, and watching them again now years later I'd forgotten how good they were compared to today's stuff..Smile
For example the 'Survivors 1975' series is about an ordinary group of humans trying to survive after a plague has wiped out most of the human race, and there's not a silly zombie, mutant or alien in sight..Smile
'The Prisoner' from the 1960's is another great show, it stars Patrick McGoohan as a spy incarcerated in a prison that's made to look like a holiday village, and he spends his time trying to escape.

There are also some great Twilight Zone episodes on youtube, for example in one called 'Cradle of Darkness', a German-speaking woman is sent back in time to 1889 to get a job as nanny in the Hitler household so she can kill the baby Adolf to prevent him growing up and starting WW2.
Another TZ episode on the time-travel theme is 'The Once and Future King', where an Elvis impersonator is accidentally thrown back in time and hitches a ride into town in a truck driven by the real (as-yet unknown) young Elvis.
The theme of both episodes is 'could a visitor to the past really change history, or will history still happen no matter what he/she does?'

@Robert Gentel,
I don't have 'pay-tv', mainly coz of the cost, albeit it is not that expensive. However, there are already so many good shows on the 'free-to-air' that I need my 2 PVR's going at the same time to record the shows I am unable to watch when they are being aired.
Even if I did have cable/pay tv I would not have the time to watch all the shows I want to watch.
I love: Blue Bloods, VERA, Inspector George Gently, Judge John Deed, Scott & Bailey, Prime Suspect, Person of Interest, Silent Witness, CSI:NY, Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey, The Bill (they've started another rerun from episode 1), Waking The Dead, astrology documentaries, David Attenborough specials, and oh so many more, esp UK/BBC productions . Big sighs.

Is anyone here a fan of The Good Wife? I've binge watched 6 seasons of it in the last two weeks, and I'd love to find someone who I could discuss some of it with.

@Blickers,
I'm halfway through the 6th season. Alicia is running for State's Attorney, and they just had a Ferguson-type police incident.
