TV Programming the Whole Family can Enjoy

Last summer when the Olympics were on, my whole family got into it. It was something that we all enjoyed watching together, and it generated healthy conversation about the sports and athletes.  

Ever since then, I’ve kept an eye out for TV shows that all of us can enjoy together. With so many available, it can be hard to find shows that are clean enough for the kids to watch, yet interesting enough for the grownups to want to watch too.
