With a new television season about to begin, viewers can't wait for the season premiers of their favorite TV shows, including long runners Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order: SVU, as well as high profile new shows, such as the Fox's country music drama Monarch or HBO's Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon.
Of course, the landscape of television has changed considerably in recent years, as evidenced by the fact that ABC's acclaimed Abbot Elementary was the only scripted network series to get any major nominations at the recent Emmy awards.
As a result, no one is beholden to tuning in when shows are on the air, or depending on their DVRs, or, for 80s and 90s children, VCRs!
More and more people watch their shows on streaming platforms, which means that not only can they watch current series the day after they aired, but younger viewers might also be able to binge classics like Friends or Will & Grace, as well as short-lived cult-favorites like Happy Endings or Freaks and Geeks.
As a result, many people's favorite show might be a show which ended its run several years ago.
Redditor stellar-being was curious to hear everyone's favorite show, old or new, which they are currently watching, leading them to ask:

Those 35 and older are frequently amazed by the fact that people are able to watch just about any show at any given time.
Though they're likely not complaining.
Who would complain at the ability to watch Rob Lowe smolder in 9-11: Lone Star, and then have him melt our hearts in Brothers and Sisters?
