    Question correlative conjunctions

    I have learnt that correlative conjunctions (in this case the pair NEITHER-NOR) link PARALLEL grammatical structures and the conjunction is located inmediatly before the parallel word or structure you're linking. So... in this case, is this sentence correct?

    I neither watch soaps, nor reality TV, but I love dramas.

    Thank you for the answer.

    I'd say 'watch neither'.
