When he's not tuning into Eastbound & Down, Adkins, who can be seen next in The Lincoln Lawyer, satiates his TV sports appetite with SportsCenter. But, ironically, he doesn't have his dial turned to it during baseball season. "[I watch it] during football season. I love football," he says.

Sports programs aside, the singer, who made his acting debut in a 2004 episode of Yes, Dear, enjoys reality shows the most. On his must-watch list: Billy the Exterminator, America's Funniest Home Videos and Les Stroud's now-defunct Survivorman.

"Billy the Exterminator is shot in my hometown — Shreveport, La.," Adkins explains. "[AFHV] because I love to laugh with my kids. ... And Les is my hero."
The reality fare is a far cry from what Adkins grew up watching — TV's longest running drama (tied with Law & Order), Gunsmoke — although the Western did feel real in one way.
