how many western TV shows have I seen?

I've seen about 100 anime series. (Go go IU anime club.) For Reasons (exposure to cliches), I wondered today how many Western TV shows I've seen to completion. I think I can count them on two hands.

Babylon-5
Buffy
Angel
Firefly
Roswell (I *think* I saw it through)
Futurama? (not sure if I ever saw *all* of it.)
I, Claudius

6-8.

I have seen a lot (like a couple seasons) of some others:

The Simpsons
Stargate SG-1 (probably have seen most of the first 7 seasons)
Xena
Dawson's Creek
DS9
Gilmore Girls
Doctor Who
Torchwood
Sarah Jane Adventures

And spotty (multiple episode) exposure to some others:

Felicity
Charmed
Voyager
ST:TOS
Enterprise
Game of Thrones
Elementary
Farscape
Crusade
plus some others that I barely remember at all. Also, yes, I think I've seen little enough of TNG to be worth noting, whereas I remember (sadly) my exposure to Enterprise and Voyager.

So more than I thought at first. Still, something like 26 going down to exposure, with about 8 full shows, another 8 substantial. Of course, the US shows tend to be a lot longer. I think the longest anime I've seen is 75 episodes, which are half-hour (ignoring ad and title/credits time); B-5 was 5*22 episodes, Buffy and Angel 7*22 each, and those are hour eps. 418 hours for the three shows, which would be 32 26-episode anime series. Roswell's 3 seasons, SG-1 I've watched is probably at least 4 seasons in total...

Not sure if I've seen more hours of anime than of Western TV. Might be equal to within a factor of 2 and I don't care to count more precisely.
