TV shows your girlfriend makes you watch (and that you secretly love)

Slide 1 of 12

We know you're hooked and it's OKBy Kati JohnstonSpecial to MSN TVIt's one of the least-well-kept secrets in TV-dom and yet something that should be shared more in advice columns all around the world for "how to build a lasting relationship." We've always known that certain shows appeal to either mostly women or mostly men, but the smartest boyfriends and husband know that the best TV anyway -- and the best time to score beaucoup bonus points -- is what and when their girlfriends or wives are watching it. We probably don't have to tell you that "it" likely refers to the mostly women-oriented shows. At first, you join us to keep us company, right? (Plus one point just for that.) And yet, somewhere along the line, you get ... hooked. Before we know it, our men are rooting for the latest "Bachelor" to pick the girl-next-door over the conniving streaker (even if you were a model, Courtney) and repeating Tim Gunn's ever-famous catchphrase, "Make it work!" from Project Runway. But there's no shame here. Along with all of the points and keeping us content (A happy wife is a happy life, no?), we know you actually like it. Even if you vehemently deny it with all of your manly-being when we bring it up in front of your friends. So with that, click on for our list of shows we like to (make you) watch, but that we know you secretly enjoy.Bing: 'The Bachelorette: Ashley and J.P.'s Wedding' | Watch clips and more from 'The Bachelorette'Are you guilty of watching and liking any of these?
