I don't like local channels much except for maybe PBS. I usually watch cable: Cartoon Network(Adult Swim), Comedy Central, TNT/AMC for movies, WGN, TLC, Discovery, Animal Planet, and the History Channel. I like the show Scrubs a lot. So I'll tune in to whatever channel is showing it. Don't feature paying for HBO, Showtime, or any of the others. They charge too much for extended basic as it is.
