What are you watching?

Dick Clark

Co-executive producer of NBC's "American Dreams"

"My most regular viewing is from 6 to 8:30 in the morning where I watch every single morning show there is. I jump from the local channels 5 and 11 to ABC and NBC. I catch the CBS 'Early Show' just to be up to date on that. I'm into the entertainment news and the gossip, but then I go to the networks for the news. This is my morning ritual.

"And for heavy-duty thinking on the weekends, I watch the History Channel while I'm doing my exercises. My wife calls it the war channel. It's not the war channel. I've followed such things as the Ku Klux Klan history and the history of automobiles. I love history and I love to watch anything they come up with, whether its automobiles or World War I."

David Brancaccio

Host of Minnesota Public Radio's "Marketplace"

"I have been watching BBC television news ... they have a woman anchor named Husain, which I find ironic. I work for public radio so people will assume that I watch public television and ... they're right. I like watching 'Ed' because I'm from a small town myself.

"My guilty pleasure is 'Monster Garage' on the Discovery Channel where they'll take a Mini Cooper or a Volkswag- en and then turn it into something com- pletely different in seven days. Once they took a school bus and turned it into a floating barge at Lake Havasu. This is complicated guy stuff."

Jill Marie Jones

Actress ("Girlfriends")

"I always loved 'The Cosby Show' because it was the first time I saw a family on TV that was successful and just happened to be black. That show was hilarious!

"But, aside from 'Cosby,' dramas are my favorite type of TV show, and 'Alias' is one of my favorites. I love Jennifer Garner -- the whole cast is amazing and the show is shot so beautifully that it makes me feel like I'm watching a movie at the local cinema.

"There are other TV actors that I really respect like Diahann Carroll, Bernie Mac, Edie Falco and James Gandolfini. Now as to what I don't like on TV are the cooking shows -- they always make me so hungry!"
