Best sites you check out everyday
Television used to seem like a joke; sitcoms were ridiculous and it was rare to find writing that was better than what one would find on the commercials in between. That said, the past few years have been rich with series that have proven better than film. So what's it for you: Survivor, Seinfeld, or the Simpsons?

VOTE THE WALKING DEAD, PAGE 10
GO THE WALKING DEAD
Interesting list and I was also checking movies list on the website.
i love hero's
The good classics always
I enjoyed Heroes so much through the first season. I just wonder if it perhaps just doesn't work on a longer time-line. Lately I just don't really care what happens to the characters. Perhaps I need to give it another chance.
Fringe is item #76 on this list
Every week I'm in my pjs on monday waiting for heroes haha i love it! Although lately its lacking but still. Also love fringe but didnt see that show on the list above oh well.
So many great shows it gets hard to pick!
You can add it if you like. :-)
Where's underbelly in this list?
I haven't seen that one yet--so many good shows to watch. :-)
Well, I added George Lopez only because my wife and I bust a gut almost every time we watch it. Also, I must watch a LOT of TV, because I had a hard time voting for my favs because I have so many!
I like desperate housewives serial......
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
are my top five shows
My five are:
Hmm I love Heroes and House too, but Simpsons still trumps 'em all in my opinion haha.
Heroes.. hands down!
I love lucy
Gee.. none of my picks is at the top...
My 5 is
Great Teacher Onizuka
Attack of the Show!
Family guy, law and order, mash, taxi, ren and stimpy
These shows rock my world, I hope they give Pushing Daisies another season, that show was beautiful
This list is missing Underbelly (greatest ever Australian TV Show).
didn't notice Footballer's Wives the British TV show on the list.
Six Feet Under
Curb Your Enthusiasm
I'm surprised that Seinfeld is ranked as low as it is. It should at least be ahead of friends!
Dead Like Me
I love Canadian Television
These are shows most readers have more trhan likely
never heard of, but to me, formed a core of quality shows from my younger days.
Peter Gunn for the groundbreaking Mancini Jazz soundtrack, Banyon for Robert Forsters cool 30's noir
style detective, Nichols was Jim Garners effort as a laid back turn of the century small town Sheriff, One Step Beyond for giving insite into the paranormal
events throughout history (and host John Newland's experiment with Dr. Anthony Pruharich with Psylisybi Mexicanis mushrooms on camera showing increased
evidence of Psychic ability after ingestion) and Ripcord for the 57 T-Bird...the stories were good, too! Hard to pick just 5 though, because there are so many to choose.
These, though, formed a core group of shows that influenced my viewing habits. Rocky & Bullwinkle were better than the Simpsons early shows because they were just so darn
deep-witted ! That's my 2 (5) cents worth!
The simpsons jumped the shark a while ago, yes. And they have that immature, tired feeling associated with it now. If you like the simpsons you may seem less sophisticated or cultured etc.
But the earlier half of the series was profoundly, groundbreakingly, phenomonally well done. I think a lot of people know that deep down. It plays every weeknight at 6pm here and has been for as long as I can remember. I watch episodes I've seen a million times and for some reason I still find them highly entertaining. I find a new joke every time. The writing is amazing.
south park, futurama, and family guy have to be on the top 5!
Shawna, The Wire is an incredible show that runs on HBO.
here is a New Yorker article on it:
what is the wire i might have to check it out?
wha? The Wire didn't even make the list?
(would be my #1)
i love house but i feel it is getting way to perdictable, whats with that?! does anyone watch carpoolers it is very funny it is now one of my new favorites! but i hate the way the stations up and change the time and day it drives me crazy!!! bug anybody else? steve carell is soooo funny!!
I like Clean Sweep and Kid Nation
Common What about Family Guy and Futurama !!!
I'm with you Shane; that last five minutes was some of the most moving television I've ever seen!
Six Feet Under.
I bought it on DVD boxset after missing it on TV. Quite simply, it is the most powerful, memorable and watchable thing I have ever seen - TV or film.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.
It looks as though Kitchen Nightmares may creep into my top 5...
