The season is sadly now over, and the folks here at KSR love getting your input on things… relevant and bizarre. We have to get a little creative around here sometimes. Last summer I started a weekly series called “We Ask You Wednesdays,” that brought in some great responses from many readers via Twitter.
Each week, the question will change and we will hit on a variety of topics, mostly UK-related… but you never know. Each week the best responses will make it on to the website. This week’s twenty ninth volume of the “We Ask You Wednesday” allowed Kentucky fans to answer the following question via Twitter in 140 characters or less: OFF-TOPIC FOR THE DAY… WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GUILTY PLEASURE T.V. SHOW AND WHY?
I think more of us than would like to admit have wasted away a good chunk of a Saturday or Sunday afternoon on one of these marathons. THEY ARE ALWAYS ON!
@AllyTuckerKSR The Kardashians. Makes me feel better about myself!

They’ve got a shower for literally everything…
@AllyTuckerKSR Tanked. Who doesn’t love a show about building extravagant fish tanks in people’s homes. It’s awesome and creative ðŸŸðŸ ðŸ¡

When I hear “summer show,” all I can think about is Big Brother.
@AllyTuckerKSR Rookie Blue on ABC. Poor acting and unbelievable plot lines but a fun summer show every year

Shout out to Jennifer Palumbo…
@AllyTuckerKSR “This Is Kentucky Basketball” especially the “Inside the Play” segment because I want to see how great my hair looks!

You would be great at that, by the way.
@AllyTuckerKSR The Carbonaro Effect. Because if I was a magician, I’d do a corny hidden camera magic show

I’ve accidentally found myself watching Doc McStuffins while babysitting…. It happens to the best of us.

Anytime there’s a character named Cookie, you know you’ve really got something.

I’m not sure if this even counts as a guilty pleasure. Everyone loves this show. My dirty secret? I’ve NEVER seen an episode.
@AllyTuckerKSR Golden Girls. Sophia is arguably the funniest character on television. And Betty White is the best

That theme song gets stuck in my head for HOURS. Thanks. “It’s a miracle!”
@AllyTuckerKSR Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It’s so oddly entertaining.

No one has made more of a career out of mediocre TV shows than that dude.
@AllyTuckerKSR The Challenge. Johnny Bananas is an American hero.

This made me nostalgic for Aaron Flener’s posts. #NeverForget
@AllyTuckerKSR the bachelorette. It is incredibly stupid and awful to all the people involved…but I can’t stop watching
– Pierce Larkin (@pierce_larkin) July 8, 2015
I’m going to have to look into this…
@AllyTuckerKSR Lydia’s Italy… Literally just an old woman cooking Italian food….Cause I’m fat.

@AllyTuckerKSR Deadliest Catch. Something mesmerizing about watching these boats for a decade now catch crabs.
– Chris Hamby (@Chris_Hamby) July 8, 2015
You know, you’re right. So none of us should feel bad for any of these choices.
@AllyTuckerKSR I don’t believe in “guilty pleasures”. Like what you like. Who cares what other people think.

BEST ANSWER OF THE WEEK:
I had forgotten about this one…
