Boy show? Girl show? Do you watch both?

So I heard a conversation on the radio today trying to define boy shows vs girl shows. And they also discussed who watches each.

What do you think is a girl or boy show? And do you watch because you want to or because a significant other is making you watch?

They talked about Heroes and labelled it a boy show. Whereas Grey's Anatomy was a girl show. Their consensus was that the gender of the audience was predominantly boy and girl respectively. It was interesting to hear how they characterized what makes up each show.

I watch both.

I am certain that Gilmore Girls qualifies as a girls show.

You can smell the vagina a mile off when Grey's is on, but I still watch it. Drama FTW?

So is that like "chick flick"? I can't stand that term, I think a movie is a movie and appeals to individuals or not. I will see any and all types of movies other than gruesome horror or extremely violent movies. I saw Shooter a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

I don't watch Heroes only because I never started watching it and would be totally lost now-same for 24. And I have enough shows to keep up with already

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (both)
CSI: Miami (boys)
CSI: New York (boys)
MXC (boys)
Survivor (girls)
The Bachelor (girls)
Supernanny (girls)
Law & Order: SVU (girls)
Law & Order: CI (both)
Real World (girls)
Real World/Road Rules Challenge (both)
Run's House (boys)
Animal Cops/Animal Precinct (girls)
Untold Stories of the E.R (both)
Shark (both)
What Not To Wear (girls)

The shows on my weekly watch list are:
Simpsons
Family Guy
Amazing Race
24
Lost
South Park
Survivor

I'd guess the regular programs would all be considered "boy" shows and the reality shows as "both" with a leaning to "girl".

There's other shows I'll watch on occasion, but would not consider myself a dedicated viewer. And then sports will fill remaining TV time.

I think the easiest way to tell which gender your show is targeted to is by the commercials.

If you see beer and truck commercials, its a "boy" show, if you see tampon commercials, its a "girl" show.

I'm a girl but I don't like 'chick flix' and I don't like it when girls force guys to watch stuff they don't like.

One guy has argued that guys could care less if there girlfriend watched their shows while in the meantime, girls need to have their boyfriends watch the same shows as themselves or at least sit through an episode or two.

Was that on CBC radio? I heard the same discussion on Monday. I watch and enjoy both, too.

I find this to be true. Although, I gave up on my hubby a while ago. If he doesn't wanna watch Survivor with me, I'm not gonna make him. But I did get him hooked on Sex and The City. Go figure.

Yes, this was on CBC on Q. Sex and the City was an exception, men learned stuff from that show, it was educational.
