This paper argues how current popular TV Shows can increase motivation and help the pupils learn vocabulary in a fast and an effective way. They can serve as great time savers and more memorable activities for the benefit of them. The use of vocabulary in a meaningful context adds up to its invaluable outcome in terms of student participation and attitudes towards the lessons. Moreover, an ELT teacher may construct his/her own teaching material out of these shows and plans the vocabulary teaching lessons according to the needs of the pupils. It is also believed that all of the pupils would like to have and enjoy these shows as their vocabulary lessons regardless of their gender. Seven sample lessons taken from a comedy show called "My Name is Earl" are used in the study to illustrate the case. The study was applied to 50 students in International School of Sarajevo.
