Buzz In: What TV Job Would You Want?

It occurred to me while watching the adorable CW show Privileged last night that the main character Megan has a pretty sweet gig. She's a tutor living in the lap of luxury in sunny Palm Beach who is in charge of ultimately getting two rich girls into college. I'm not sure I'd love to be a tutor to heiresses, but lately she's spending less time teaching and more time hanging out with cute guys . . . in the lap of luxury. I'm jealous!

I also think Chuck's job as a secret spy often seems exciting (though, you know, a little dangerous). And in the reality TV world, Padma's judging gig on Top Chef is an enviable job I would not turn down (eating all that great food? Sign me up!). Your turn: which TV jobs would you want?

ilanac13, I can't deny that I've had random fantasies about being rich and famous. I don't think I could face the media, though. In my dreams, I would love to be an Iron Chef :)

I would love to do PR for a major fashion house like Whitney in the City, but I would like to actually do work, not just go to endless staff meetings.

i would love to have one of the LJ jobs as well - maybe not victory's since i like fashion but i'm not a good designer - but i like the idea of running a magazine or a movie studio. that could be really fun. other than that - if you think about how cushy megan's job is - then that's something to consider...but i'd want to travel more if i were in her shoes. what about Vincent Chase in Entourage - who wouldn't want to be a movie star right?

I always wanted Jen Garner's character from Alias job. I know her life sucked but she got to travel and kick ass. I think I just have a secret desire to be an ass kicking spy because I will take Alias, Chuck and Burn Notice jobs- although Burn Notice is technically being fired from a job but still kicking ass I would also love Anthony Bourdain's job. He really gets to travel to awesome places and show how they actually are and not some sugar coated tourist crap

I would want to be Samantha Brown from the Travel Channel because she gets travel all over the world and goes to nice hotels & samples fancy food. I love her specials at Disneyland & Disney World in particular.

I think I'd like to have Rachel's job on Friends that she had at the very end of the series. I'm not good with fashion, but I bet if I had her job I'd be good with it!

Wow. Tough one, but I think Sam from Reaper gets the top spot -- I love innovative problem solving. And hardware stores.

Whatever it is that they do in Dollhouse sounds great, if it didn't also seem so darn dark and ominous. (I can't wait for that to premier! Joss Whedon, I love you, and will watch anything you create.)

I'd rather have Sarah's job from Chuck than Chuck's. Oh, and Pam's from The Office. If there was a Jim in love with me I could probably put up with Michael and Dwight.

If I had Victory Ford's talent in Lipstick Jungle, that'd be an awesome career. Otherwise, I can't remember being really attracted to a character's job. I don't watch much, though.
