What are YOUR favorite TV shows ?

I dont watch a lot of TV.. Actually, i sit in front of the TV a lot, but i dont really care/pay attention to what's on. Lately though, there have been several shows that i find are really, REALLY good.

What are YOUR favorite shows? List them, in order of their good'ness..

Mine:

  • 30Rock - no doubt the best show on TV.  Sadly, it's about the only thing NBC has been able to do right for the last few years
  • Southland - I'm not really into "cop" shows, but this show is great. It only lasted on NBC for one season, but TNT has picked it up
  • It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - it's like Seinfeld for the 21st century
  • Breaking Bad - The new season premier is this Sunday, March 21 !
  • Archer - If you love "grown up" animated shows, you'll love Archer.  Complete with rough-language and all

 

And of course, the two best shows everrr:  The Sopranos and Six Feet Under

 

What does your list look like?

Seems like over the last couple years Ive stopped paying attention to what I watch and the TV is just on for background noise. However there are a few I actually pay attention to when I watch:

New comedies that I think I like:

  • Cougartown- Courtney Cox, recently divorced mom with a dysfunctional relationship with her kid, ex, best friend (who is HILARRRIOUS!) and everyone else she meets
  • Modern Family- Crazy funny show about a totally dysfunctional family- complete with an ex-drug lord's wife as the 30 y/o step mom, a gay son and his partner who adopt an asian baby, and and core family of a kookie dad and semi-normal soccer mom. Its funny, trust me!

Dramas I cant live without:

  • Dexter- love it, must have more of it. 
  • Damages- Quite possibly the best show I have ever seen. Ever. Also one of those shows where you CANNOT miss an episode or you are totally screwed.
  • Brothers & Sisters- My gramma got me hooked on this show. Its actually really, really good- full of smart lines, comedy, heart break, etc. Give it a try, it might surprise you.
  • Honorable Mention: United States of Tara- Toni Collette with multiple personalities. Hilarity and craziness ensues. But its NOT a comedy. Theres something sad and honest about it that can be quite gripping.
  • Honorable Mention: True Blood- Vampires, Weres, etc. Season 1 was awesome. Season 2 was eh...and Season 3 looks like it will be better. Im still waiting to decide if it will become a favorite.

Cougartown and Modern Family both ALMOST made it on my list. I watch them both, like them both, but they just arent quite up there with the others on my list. Good shows .

I'm stuck on the oldies:

  • NCIS
  • Law & Order SVU
  • The First 48
  • and recently Criminal Minds

 

The only new one I have gotten into is The Good Wife with Julianna Marguiles and Peter Noth.

My son and I watch Extreme Home Makeover which turns me into a crybaby while Mini and I love Maury episodes about paternity..."You re not the father!" It is a long running joke...

I used to watch TV more but the gap created by the writer's strike has kinda broke my TV watching habits.

House, 30 Rock, and Modern Family are my must see's... I'm trying to figure out if I like Parenthood, but it's a little too new to decide... Oh, and FlashForward... :D

I've also become a Clean House fan... but it's not on my favorites, because one part of the show irks me...

Edit: wtf... I forgot Glee... I lurv watching Glee!

Re: What are YOUR favorite TV shows ?

a few months back i thought House was one of the dumbest shows on TV.. now, i find myself watching it all the time (it's got reruns on cable all the time).. it's not great like 30-Rock or the other 'great' shows listed (IMHO), but i just cant help but watch it..

PS.. There are a LOT of "inside" jokes on 30-Rock that only employees of a certain, very large company would ever get.. makes it even more fun to watch.

Still hooked on LOST and it's still driving me crazy.
The Big Bang Theory is always good for some laughs.
I agree with Almost Evil about Dexter, it is addictive.
Supernatural \,,/
And just got into Burn Notice

Oh yes....Burn Notice!!! Absolutely love that show. Mr.Pants pulled him over when he was in town for a golf tournament and even he got a little star struck!
