It’s still winter. Politics sucks, the weather sucks, and we’re all sick of being inside. Our Winteritis stories are for women who can’t read another think piece, who’ve pushed the outer limits of time it’s possible to spend on social media, and who kind of want to shop online and hibernate until spring is here.
Why do so many people dismiss reality shows like The Bachelor or Real Housewives as "guilty pleasures"? Just because you keep up with the Kardashians or add Cupcake Wars to your queue doesn't mean you suddenly cut important, critically-beloved dramas out of your life. When it comes to TV watching, you can have it all—and most people do. That seems to especially be true during the dreary winter season, when the weather practically begs you to Netflix and chill. Because after a long day at work, when it's too cold for happy hour, doesn't it feel so good to sit in your sweatpants, pour yourself a glass of wine, and scream at that Chopped contestant who forgot the last basket ingredient? If you know, you know.
Even actors who have starred on some of TV's most prestige, Emmy-winning series watch reality programs. We know this because we asked them. Below are 21 of their favorites—if you haven't watched any of these yet, we recommend adding them to your queue ASAP.
