Even your editors need some quality couch-time, and when we make it there, we've got our favorites. Sure, we watch the news, we want to know what's going on with the weather, and we'll never tire of HBO. But when our gray matter needs a break and our guilty-pleasure tank is empty, these are the shows we relax to. Click through to see what occupies Refinery29's brains on the rare occasion those brains aren't occupied with bringing fashion news to you!
Christie Craft, Managing Editor.
"Celebrity ghost stories is hands-down my favorite. The D-list celebrities' accounts of the supernatural (which often sound like bad trips) and the dramatizations are the best! Ghostfellas—a ghost-hunting show with Tony Soprano-types due out this fall—is sure to be my new favorite, though. Yes!"
Connie Wang, Global Editor.
"Anthony Bourdain talks about food [on No Reservations] in a way that both exalts it and grounds it with context. Plus, the dude is kinda foxy, no?"
Christy Kurtz, Photo Editor.
"So You Think You Can Dance is pretty much the only reality TV show i watch, but I do love it."
Shani Silver, Chicago Editor.
"I don't know how or why, but the fisherman on Deadliest Catch have won my heart. This is getting serious."
Kate Mulling, Los Angeles Editor.
"Ina Garten. [a.k.a. the Barefoot Contessa] I want her life!"
Katie Hintz, San Francisco Editor, and Betsey McLain, Beauty Editor.
Katie: "It's definitely pathetic, but I'm totally addicted to the '16 and
Pregnant' and 'Teen Mom' series. I have watched every single episode.
And the tearful Dr. Drew reunions. I'm a sucker for it all and
encourage others to get hooked. As one friend's British husband
recently stated: 'Teen Mom is the best American drama on television.'
I totally agree with that."
Betsey: "Teen Mom!!! It's fascinating."
Lisa Dionisio, Production Editor.
"Best Thing I Ever Ate.... I don't watch much reality TV, nor am I well-versed in the foodie-universe, but whenever I flip through the channels and I catch this, I have to stop and watch it. Best Thing I Ever Ate Chocolate = Best Thing Ever."
