In particular, Bob mentioned Bravo. Is there such a thing as a "Bravo addict?"
While there are numerous shows on Bravo (Project Runway, My Life on the D List and Workout come to mind) that I love, I don't consider myself a Bravo addict... and that's not just because I'm the proprietor of this blog.
I don't just turn Bravo on randomly after work or on the weekends, and since that network doesn't have a selection of regular hosts--other than perhaps James Lipton of Inside the Actor's Studio--I don't have any particular connection or investment with the ones that appear for a few months, only to go into hiatus for the rest of the year.
I watch the shows that I like, with enthusiasm, but still change the channel at the end. That's not the same with my beloved Food Network. I'll watch the same episodes over and over and keep watching even after one show segues to the next.
So what is it that makes up Food Network addicts, particularly? Is it the natural human need to eat that keeps our eyes glued to FN, or does it just do a better job of keeping us entertained?
