Mayor Martin J. Walsh, a son of Dorchester, spends about a half-hour most days on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. And some time in Nashville, Tenn., and, yes, a little in Seattle.
“ ‘Seinfeld,’ ” he said in a recent interview about his TV viewing habits. “I love it. It’s why I watch at least one show a night.”
“ ‘Seinfeld,’ I try to watch that — I watch like almost every single night, except for Sundays, ’cause it’s not on Sundays,” he said of the 1990s-era New York-themed sitcom, which is still in heavy syndication.
Walsh, who is a Patriots season tickets holder, also watches sports regularly — basketball, hockey, whatever is on, even if it’s not a Boston team, he said.
What else does he watch when he’s not running the city?
He turned to a press aide: “You want me to come clean?”
“It’s up to you,” replied Laura Oggeri, Walsh’s chief communications officer.
A reporter chimed in: “You should come clean.”
“I’ll watch ‘Nashville’ too — and maybe a little ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ” Walsh, replied referencing the country music-themed show and the popular medical drama which takes place in Seattle.
Oggeri looked momentarily stricken.
“Don’t come that clean,” she said with a smile. “Backtrack.”
