Dictionary: watchability


To be watahable – to neither entertain nor bore the viewer.

The Guilt Trip wasn’t good, but it had watchability.Yeah, ‘watchability’ just hits the spot for movies and TV shows that aren’t good but aren’t so bad that you have to turn them off five minutes after they start – some programs just have watchability. We started saying this word after Coors Light proclaimed it had drinkability, which is right on: it’s not good beer, but one can drink it and complain only a small amount.

About the Dictionary
The Dictionary is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but never got around to until now. I had a writing college in class during which one assignment challenged us to make up our own words. I sucked at it (hard), but I loved the idea, so I’m giving it a go now.
