'Girls' star Allison Williams, how do you do it?

Allison Williams' character on "Girls" comes across as a little elitist, but the actress herself is an admitted pop culture junkie from the low to the high.

“The shorter question is what am I not obsessed with pop culturally! There’s nothing I can’t talk about," Williams told CNN Thursday as she arrived at the 50th anniversary gala for PBS' flagship station, Thirteen.

For example, Honey Boo Boo: "It’s a thing, it’s happening, we should all just get on board," Williams said.

"Last night I watched ‘Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.’ I cried like eight times, I’m not embarrassed about it. It happens, it’s a physiological reaction to people realizing their potential. And there’s so much, I could go on and on."

Indeed she can - when Adweek asked Williams for a list of her favorite TV shows, they couldn't even print the entire thing, which runs from "American Idol" and "American Horror Story" to "Downton Abbey" to "Veep" and "The Voice." (Of course, she also watches her own HBO show, which appears to have picked up a third season, as well as her dad Brian Williams on "NBC Nightly News" and "Rock Center.")

"I’m just picturing people reading this list thinking, ‘How does she do anything!?’" Williams told us. (Which, we'll admit, we did wonder.) "And the answer is, I don’t! I don’t do a thing!"

(Eh, we beg to differ Allison, but we'll take your word for it.)

The second season of "Girls" launches January 13 on HBO, and you can check out her (shortened) list of must-see TV at Adweek.com.

      I think he's the supreme commander of a pretend space ship. I think he collects dolls and calls em collectible action figures. He seems ok though.

      I heard he is some guy that sits in a cubicle and pretends he is on Star Trek when he's at work. It makes the day go by while he is answering sales calls.

    Almost time for our ship to dock at space port 12 just outside the Rigellian Nebulae. Vice Admiral Lorz had requested an extraction crew remove the hostile alien presence that has taken over the station. I'm sending in the Away Team to analyze the situation. Supreme Commander Thomas out.

    I wonder if she is dating anyone? I'd spring for burger and fries off the value menu if she want to go to the movies.

    If she still likes Ametican Idol then she might be an embicile. It has that Nikki Minaj on it now. American Idol has been officially banned in our home.

    Her jaws look to big in this photo. When she smiles it makes the sides of her face pooch out. Other than that, if she got a booob job she would look ok.
