Default Lifetime Channel: Ladies, Why?

This is a question for the ladies. What is with women and Lifetime Channel? We only have one television and I often get forced to watch this stuff because my wife hogs the remote control. As best I can tell, the Lifetime genres are either "Beaters" or "Cheaters" - meaning, all the shows on Lifetime either involve men who are wife-"beaters" or men who are "cheaters" against their spouse or girlfriend. I have never seen so many programs about bigamy, stalking, date rape, etc. Why do women enjoy watching this stuff? At least men are predictable with Spike TV - fights, cleavage, stunts, etc. Please, ladies, tell me WHY?

Solution: Man up and take control of the remote. If you let your wife control it, you deserve to be stuck watching Lifetime.

I don't watch the Lifetime Channel so I can't help on this one. I'm more of a Spike, history, discovery, or Versus kind of girl.

Ug, detest Lifetime!!! The only thing that channel is good for is.....well, nothing.


Thank God they moved the Golden Girls over to Hallmark

I think women who watch these movies/shows about rape, beatings, cheaters, are missing something in their lives where they need to fill it up with psuedo dramatic situations that are usually fictional. I know some stories are real, but usually even those programs are fabricated and rewritten with excess drama.

There's enough wrong in the world as is, imo.

I can tell by your post that you aren't married. Don't worry . . . your time will come.

Sorry, but I am married. If Kelli wants to watch the lifetime channel while I want to watch something else, she'd probably go watch it in the bedroom. I get control of the remote in the living room. You probably made the mistake a long time ago of letting her have it. Now the precedent is set. Sorry buddy.

I stand corrected. What does your wife think of the "Here For The Hot Women" comment in your avatar? Actually, Lifetime has become less of an issue. Now it is PBS Kids!

She knows I joke around like that and she's cool with it. No kids yet so I haven't had to turn over the TV to them.

I've become an expert on Elmo, Barney and all the Disney characters.

I catch myself with the TV on those channels when the kids aren't here. Then I will be like Hey! Wait a minute..... I don't have to watch this crap!
