 From quoting Seth MacFarlane shows to playing The Walking Dead drinking games, the signs of the basic bro TV fan are many. ESPN is likely the most watched channel on his TV, and he can quote Mac and Charlie from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia with eerie accuracy. Among this list are some of the top basic bro shows - these shows can most likely be made into a drinking game at a moment's notice and are the perfect addition to that dude bro life.

Chances are the bro in question has even stopped listing to his girlfriend mid-sentence to turn up the volume on one of these TV shows for guys, because they play to the very core of basic bro-ey interests: sports, explosive action, chicks, drinking, and bro bonding. And this list doesn't even take Monday Night Football into account. Giggity, giggity, giggity!

Know any other bro TV shows all the dudes and bros like? Be sure to add them if they aren't already listed.
