Life getting boring in your cul-de-sac? Indulge in some Diva TV like Desperate Housewives and take a walk on the wild side of Wisteria Lane.

Need a place where everybody knows your name? Drop in for a little You’ve Got a Friend TV like Cheers and order some fun on the rocks without having to face the hangover in the morning.

White-knuckling the armchair of life? Let go with a little Anti-Anxiety TV like
In Living Color and laugh at your fears.

Got a bad case of the codependent blues? Indulge in a little Codependent TV like Nip/Tuck and reassure yourself that things could definitely be worse!
