Everyone likes a good TV show that will kill some time before bed. These shows will either make you think or melt away the worries of the day with laughter before you close your eyes at night. We take the time every night to wind down before waking up to face the next day of work or dealing with the kids. A favorite TV is like therapy for our own lives. We can relate to the characters or know someone who reminds of them. There are those characters that you just love to hate or you can’t just get enough of and generally those characters are the ones with the egos.
