What are your favorite TV shows to watch with your kids? Are they all dance related? My DDs ages are between 5-11, here are our favs:

SYTYCD
DWTS
Master Chef Junior

My two older DDs also enjoy 'The Next Step' which is a Canadian psuedo-reality (in other words, not reality at all, at least not our reality) show about competition dance. They still enjoy the mostly-kid friendly shows on The Family Channel & Disney Channel - they don't watch much prime time stuff other than what I mentioned aboved, which we mostly PVR & watch together on non-dance nights.

My kid is a geek so she is really into Japanese anime.  It was a blizzard here last night and we had car issues, so we were all home and did a anime marathon on Netflix.  Box sets are the only thing she wants for Christmas...yay me.  She also likes The 100.  We watched SYTYCD religiously until Jim was booted....then not so much.  Other than that...she is not much into TV.

As for me:  Walking Dead/Fear the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Leftovers, Getting On (just discovered this show...love it),  Last Man on Earth.  Sometimes Grimm, sometimes Sleepy Hallow, sometimes Supernatural.

Survivor
Scorpion
Castle
The Next Step (Canadian show)
Big Bang Theory (although it's going downhill)
Blackish (family fav)
SYTYCD 
Raptors and Blue Jays games

...that's about it.

DD turns 15 today and we've definitely seen a shift in the kind of shows she likes in the past year.

The only thing we really watch together as far as TV shows is SYTYCD.  But my kids are teens.  They watch things like Awkward , My Big Fat Fabulous LIfe, Bring It on, and Finding Carter (which I get sucked in to whenever I am in the room much to my dismay)  

I love a good late night binge ....so I have watched a lot of stuff that is on Netflix.  Right now I am binging on Blacklist when I have time.  I watch The Walking Dead / Fear The walking Dead , Sleepy Hollow , Haven , Rizzoli and Isles, American Horror , SYTYCD , and my newest favorite Blindspot.   Luckily I have DVR and not all of these are on the same time of year.  [smile]

I kind of like Blindspot too but it must come on at a time when we aren't home, so I have to remember to go back and watch it.  I want to like American Horror but I can't get into the Hotel one...it is just too weird for me to connect to it.  I liked the witch year.

Coven was my favorite American Horror.  I didn't stick with the Freakshow season.  I didn't like it for multiple reasons.  LOL.   I liked Hotel much more the first few episodes than the last few but so far I am sticking with it.

My girls and I watch Project Runway together.  They are liking the new Project Runway Junior, too.  As a family, we sometimes watch the Tigers games, but that's about it.

oooo...that reminded me!  DD loves Quantico for some reason!  I like the new CSI Cyber (way better than last year's version) and Code Black!! And anything MasterChef or Top Chef related.

I'll also admit it ...I've gotten into Million Dollar Listing too.  SHAME ON ME!

DD16 is obsessed with anime. Its to the point where she makes costumes and I have taken her and friends to local anime cons. I confess, I dont get it. But it makes them happy.

We are big TV people. I'm not ashamed to admit it! We all loved Parks and Rec, but now that's over, so our favorites are:

Doctor Who
The Goldbergs
Fresh off The Boat
The Middle
Big Bang Theory
Amazing Race

DS also watches anime - he likes a show called Hunter x Hunter, not sure if that's technically anime or not. (Or manga? I am so clueless.)
He also likes Rick and Morty and Gravity Falls.

I love Call the Midwife, can't wait for the next special.
I also watch Project Runway, The Great British Baking Show, and sometimes Top Chef.
We used to watch SYTYCD, but mostly watched featured routines online this season.
Oh, and sports, especially tennis! If nothing interesting is on, the Tennis Channel goes on by default.

Fixer Upper (Chip and Joanna Gaines!, The walking Dead, Criminal Minds, and Code Black DD doesn't watch anything currently. We all used to watch American Horror Story but it just lost my interest this season. If I'm in a TV watching mood I try to find a series and watch it straight through rather than current TV. I did that with the first 2 seasons of Call the Midwife

We love anime, too! Both DD's are named for anime characters. Any recommendations on Netflix? We loved Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, Battle Angel Alita and Trigun.

With DD, we watch:
Eureka
Haven
NCIS
Top Chef
Agents of Shield
Phineas and Ferb

No dance shows. Too much talk and not enough dancing. If DD wants to watch dancing we just Youtube it.
