Watch free TV shows online here, like The OC, The Office, 24, Scrubs, Prison Paula Neal Mooney

Upate: I've created an online TV guide listing channels and links to watching full and partial episodes on the web.

"Watch live TV for free online!"

"Watch 24 online! Watch The Office online!"

The people have spoken.

Not only do we want our MTV, we want to watch our favorite MTV shows online...and our ABC shows, and our CBS shows...all for free viewing, full episodes.

And the TV execs are finally catching up with some of the renegade start-ups listed next to them below and are making some full episodes of their TV shows available to watch online for free.

Paula --> I discovered these full episodes a few months ago. I now end up watching most of my television via the Internet during the middle of the work week. I often miss the original airing of a show in the evening because of meetings, children and such. These free/full episodes have been ideal for keeping up with Prison Break, NCIS, The Unit, Lost, 24 and such.

Great info. I didn't know about VH1 and some of the others on your list.

peace, Villager
This is great, Paula! Especially now in summer re-runs -- with this, I can finally go back and catch up on the shows I completely missed out on while I was devoted to LOST, Boston Legal, 30 Rock, and yes, I admit it, the last, strange season of The Apprentice w/Donald Trump (I think they've finally jumped the shark, you know what I mean?). Anyway, this is one for Regards, Sherri

I have tested Joost and it worked for me. Not a big deal as to shows unless you like documentaries and Scifi series. What I did enjoy was the full screen mode and how interactive it can be. It was easy to move across the channels, watch was on next, play what was coming next, update online if available (the list is growing fast), chat, send mails to your friends, work with widgets,etc.
I am down for that! I already watch wonder woman for free on Aol IN2TV!
Hey Wayne the Villager
Yeah, when my TiVo flipped out a little on Grey's Anatomy, I was grateful to be able to catch it online.

Now people all over the UK are searching for that show online!

Hi Sherri
Yes, I'm glad The Apprentice w/Donald Trump has finally been cancelled!

But I do want to give a look-see to other shows I've missed like 30 Rock and such.

Hey Carlos
I seriously need to look further into my DirectX error. I was up too late last night to want to Google into it, but I think I just need to "Upgrade U" -- sorry, had a Beyonce moment there -- or, upgrade one of those doohickeys to get it to work.

I like documentaries, and I like checking back on these sites to see what new shows they've all added.

Hi Kimberly
That is so wonderful you watch Wonder Woman!

I can hear the theme song now -- Wonder Woman!

Ah...Linda Carter was just so empowering to us girls of the '70s, catching those criminals with her truth rope in her little 20-inch-waist-cinching-gold-belted getup!

Think I'll go back and check out some Chico and The Man...
maurizio said…
I tried just one and it says "US only"

Howdy Maurizio

Which one did you try? The VideoHybrid? ABC's site?

I'm really hoping the Grey's Anatomy ones are available to international readers because there's a big interest in GA overseas...
affzan said…
Good job Paula. Have you tried Sopcast? It's a p2p online TV. Much like Joost.
Leon said…
Awesome! Plus it makes sense. If people are gonna put your shows online, why not best them by showing clear ones, unlike those on YouTube?
confessing7girl said…
hiiiii i just hv to drop a comment with all that please comment... as i live in portugal we hv like weeks delay on episodes from the most famous tv shows and what i used to do was emule it or ask a friend to send me but this sounds much better and easier!! thanx for the info!!
musicmixingguru said…
no mac users allowed..this is the same thing as joost.

Thanks for the info.

I just went on the SopCast site and signed up and got annoyed cause they immediately told me I needed to update to a new version.

Ah...I think I just need to eat lunch. But I see they've got ESPN and stuff on there.

Maybe I can tell my hubby about this. I appreciate it.

Hey Leon
Exactly! ABC and all those places need to get more with the program.

Don't they know how many people are searching for Oprah and The View episodes online?

Hey, what you are confessing? ;-)

Let me know if these work for you down in Portugal.

One of my readers in Switzerland couldn't access the ABC site, but VideoHybrid worked for him.

Hey musicmixingguru brother man...
So you're a Mac user, heh?

I heard that this stuff doesn't work for you all. Do any of them work for Mac users?

There've gotta be some sites out there for Mac users that do the same thing.

Sounds like you should post about those!

Those Mac "mouses" kinda freak me out...
AgentSully said…
Way cool info! Your site is looking awesome, BTW!! Nice updates! I'll be giving this one a stumble!
musixmixingguru said…
lol i use a wireless pc mouse and keyboard on my mac. It was funny that you mentioned it. by mac key and mouse broke and i had that wireless setup laying around. I thought about posting it but i haven't found the time to find a service that will work. i been so much on just audio that im going crazy. But i have been learning more about audio in these last few weeks then i have i the last 2 years combined. Audio Changes frequently so i have a lot to should get on your own server you have too good of a site to just keep it on blogger.
Thanks for the Stumble, AgentSully.
You didn't read the part of my email asking if that was your real avatar...

Music Mix Guru Bro' Man
Yeah, it's funny you should write that 'cause I'm playing around on DreamHost right now, looking for a good URL and an even better coupon code around the net!

But that'll be for new dot coms I set up. I am not transferring this PR5 God-blessed baby anytime soon!
blogpaul said…
I have watched all of the Spongebob ones...wish we could get Fosters House for imaginary Friends or even My Gym Partner's a Monkey.

Run's house is actually one show I love to watch...I like the one where he busted Diggy for stealing everything.

Thanks for the post...I am finally back from my 3 month European vacation...ok I didnt even leave my city, but i'm reading a lot again!
Laura said…
Hi Paula!

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm tired of reality shows.

I want some good clean shows like The Cosbys and Growing Pains ...
Cyberpartygal said…
Greta list Paula! Will definitely watch the shows if my broadband is up to it!
Now I know how to spend my time if I ever need to go back to cubicle hell.... Mwahahaha... mwahahaha... :D

I don't own a TV so it was nice to catch all my favorite shows online. Sadly, most of these sites are blocked where I am living now, in the Philippines.
andy said…
This is a great list. I don't usually watch TV online but I am pretty happy with Joost.
Anonymous said…
There is actually a huge list of videos and shows, in case you missed your favorite show.

You can watch online television shows and movies any time you want, for free!
