Which TV shows do you talk about at work?

Posted on

Dwts_lSeems like everybody talks about TV at the office, even people who (unlike me and my co-workers) don’t get paid to do so. A new survey specifies who’s talking about which programs. No surprise, American Idol is the most talked-about show, popular among both men and women, and especially among workers 65 or older (ah, now we know who voted scary tattooed rocker Carly off the show). Besides AI, women like to talk about Dancing With the Stars (pictured), while men like to pretend they can make sense of talk about Lost.

Which shows are popular topics around your office watercooler? And do you think talking about TV helps or hurts your workplace productivity?
