Nov. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Watching TV is often regarded as a mindless activity, but Go Banking Rates has identified five television shows that can actually improve the way consumers understand and manage their finances. Hosted by popular finance gurus and personalities, Go Banking Rates selects the following programs as the best for those who wish to improve their financial literacy.

1. The Suze Orman Show - MSNBC

Suze Orman's "tell-it-like-it-is" attitude and practical tips help watchers achieve their life goals. During her "Can You Afford It" segment, Orman closely examines each caller's financial situation to determine whether they can afford a particular purchase -- vacation, new home, home remodel, etc. Plus, she addresses a number of viewer questions and concerns via webcam.

2. Money 911 - NBC Today Show

David Bach, one of the financial experts on Money 911, provides on-air answers to questions received by Today Show viewers. Bach tackles questions on topics, such as credit card debt, home appraisals, mortgages, investments and savings (http://www.gobankingrates.com/savings-account/). He educates viewers on the difference between good debt and bad debt, and preaches the importance of financial freedom through debt elimination.

3. Clark Howard Show - HLN

Clark Howard believes that saving money and penny-pinching is the way to survive tough financial times. Always on the watch for the next best deal, Howard offers advice for scoring discounts on practically everything -- vacations, mobile phone service, groceries and entertainment.

4. Mad Money - CNBC

One glimpse of Jim Cramer's energetic, high-strung antics, and viewers may reach for the remote control. But if they can get passed the sound effects, rants and yelling, Cramer offers practical advice for playing the stock market. He encourages diversification, discusses how to identify danger zones, as well as when to sell and buy. Cramer also offers his pick of potentially profitable stocks.

5. Til Debt Do Us Part - MSNBC

Financial expert Gail Vaz-Oxlade takes couples therapy to another level. Each week she meets with a different couple and helps them through their toughest financial problem -- consumer debt. There's no sugarcoating as Vaz-Oxlade forces couples to come face-to-face with their balances and realize the long-term consequences of excessive spending. Through a series of challenges, couples learn how to live on less and develop a financial recovery strategy.
