I think that maybe in these television shows there was a particular element or particular theme you identify with. This is what people mean by "relating" to a story. In the case of people on the internet, I see a lot of people who aren't really like other people, and as a result identify and respond to different things. I'd call you different, ergo you identify with different things. Here's the catch: it isn't necessarily something that you see yourself in, or something that you feel like you go through. It just needs to be interpreted that way by you.
As someone who sometimes feels like he's been subjugated by women in his early life, when I read a book called A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, the story of a little girl with a drunk, lazy, but well meaning father, a strong, independent, hard working mother, and a typical younger brother living in Brooklyn in 1912, it sometimes made me feel angry. I felt more sympathy for the father, who always seemed to be portrayed as at fault in the book, and the little brother, who always seemed to serve no other purpose than to contrast to the little girl. It seemed that way to me because I always felt like I was under the foot of particular women in my life when I was very young, and that has stayed with me for a long time. The mother was strong, independent, and integral to the children's survival, and ultimately an amazing person (maybe not character, but that's debatable). The reason why I still don't like her is because my sister is strong and independent, but she's also an insufferable prick to me, because she's so ridiculously stubborn and is only condescending to me. Because of that, I recognize her traits but perceive them negatively because I identify them with something else in my life, which is my sister.
Secondly, a character in Homestuck named Vriska seems to me like a selfish, irredeemable, conceited, irrational, and manipulative cunt who has done nothing for anybody and the only person she's done anything for is herself. Am I wrong? Probably, and the Homestuckers will probably call me out on it. Why? Because of my sister. She is manipulative and conceited, but she's probably not irredeemable, and probably has some very positive qualities, but I can't see them. Why? Because I recognize the negatives and emphasize them more because I see someone who may just be worse than my sister in them.
This may apply to you because although you may not see yourself in any of the characters, or feel like any of these shows reflect events in your life, you may find traits that you can relate to someone or something in your life, or the arrangements and relationships of those characters may reflect something you see in your life, and as a result you identify with and feel an emotional attachment to them.
Alternatively, you could be just very emotionally engaged, which means you're enjoying your television.
Only a very well written piece of fiction can get me to have "feels" about a character. Very few things have managed to do this for me. Not even Homestuck has.
I don't know what to put here right now.
