Kelly Hu (X2: X-Men United)
I am a Martha Stewart wannabe, so I love HGTV (Home & Garden Television). I watch so many shows on that channel. It is always on in the background. It gives me all kinds of good ideas. I like all those surprise design makeover shows like Trading Spaces, Surprise by Design and While You Were Out.

Mark Wahlberg
Boomtown. It has my brother in it (Donnie Wahlberg). Reason enough to watch.

Camryn Manheim
I love Sex and the City. I am so sad they are quitting after this season. I’m going to miss the girls. It is so empowering to sit down and watch a show where the girls actually act like real girls. They are smart and strong and funny and they talk about sex.

Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon
I started watching American Idol because of Ruben. I thought he was so much fun to watch every week. He had a great voice and tons of charisma. Unlike other reality shows, those folks have a reason to be on TV. They have talent and it needs to find its way out to the people. Plus, that Simon is so mean. I feel guilty, but I wait to hear what he is going to say. Ray Romano
We watch a whole lot of the Rugrats and SpongeBob SquarePants at our house. This SpongeBob is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. It makes no sense and it is a huge hit with the kids. I wish I would have thought of it.

Neal McDonough (Boomtown)
I love watching You Gotta See This on Fox Sports. It has guys wiping out on motorcycles, car crashes and sports accidents. I love that show. There is nothing funnier than seeing a skateboarder going down a rail and eating it and landing on his stuff. That is good TV.

Carmen Electra
I am a reality TV junkie and the best of the bunch was The Osbournes. I can’t wait for them to come back on. I think they are a really healthy family. They have such great communication and they let the kids be themselves. It is entertaining.

Trista Rehn
I have watched Friends since the beginning. They are a funny group of people and they have great clothes and apartments. It is just so believable that they are all friends. Plus, I always tune into The Bachelor. Having been through it twice, I like to see how everyone handles the situation differently. I can’t wait for Bob’s (a contestant from The Bachelorette) debut. I think he is going to make the best Bachelor yet because he is so funny and any girl would be lucky to have him fall for her. Christina Ricci
Boomtown is my new TV obsession. It is so good. The episode where the lawyer killed his girlfriend and you find out in the end why Donnie Wahlberg wanted to nail the guy for the crime so bad totally made me cry. I was alone in a hotel room crying over a TV show. It’s powerful stuff.

Tina Fey
I watch Home & Garden Television almost exclusively. I watch that a lot. My favorite show right now is either Designer’s Challenge or Designing for the Sexes. A bunch of interior designers make presentations of a project and then people choose. And then they show the follow-through of the project, whatever it may be. That’s Designer’s Challenge. And Designing for the Sexes is with this guy Michael Payne who goes into interior design things with couples who are having trouble agreeing on what to do. He guides them on a compromise. I just find in troubling, stressful times, I like very soothing programs about home and decorating.

Brooke Burns (Dog Eat Dog)
The only thing I am allowed to watch anymore because I have a 3-year-old daughter is Dora the Explorer or Clifford the Big Red Dog. It used to be Teletubbies and I was so bored of and tired of them. They don’t even talk, so I am glad she has moved on.

Kelly Preston
I like CSI. I like the cast. It’s just well done (and has) good stories. Sara Rue (Less Than Perfect)
The BBC’s What Not to Wear. Basically, it’s two women ripping other people apart about their wardrobes. They throw out their entire wardrobe, give them 2,500 to buy a new wardrobe, and style them. I would not be good as one of their fashion victims because I would just cry.

Vanessa Lengies (American Dreams)
Gilmore Girls. I wish that was my life. I feel it’s aimed perfectly for 17-year-old girls like me and moms because every daughter wants to be best friends with their mom.

Lisa Rinna (Soap Talk)
I love Life with Bonnie. Bonnie Hunt is hysterical. She’s so dry and sarcastic. Give that girl a second season and an Emmy quick!

Thomas Ian Nicholas (ITALIC “American Wedding”])
Everybody Loves Raymond. That show has such heart, and it hits you at the core of your own experiences. My family is almost as crazy as Raymond’s. Everyone can relate to at least some of the situations Raymond and his family find themselves in.
