    1. Supernatural
    2. Reaper [Best new show of Last year]
    3. Adventures of Brisco County Jr. [Bruce Campbell is a GOD]
    4. My Name is Earl [Love Jason Lee, although seasons 2/3 meh]
    5. Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers [Awesome cartoon from my youth]

    I really liked Smallville until about season 6 when it turned into a complete soap opera.

    Supernatural is IMO one of the best shows on TV, well-written and mixes horror and a bit of light-hearted comedy very well.

    Reaper, awesome cast, Bret Harrison is great, Ray Wise is amazing as the Devil and Tyler Labine is my personal hero as 'Soc.'

    Brisco County Jr. is just a fun show, Bruce Campbell is the greatest b-movie actor to ever exist. [Rumormill: Evil Dead 4 is actually going to be made! Even Bruce said it was being green-lighted]

    My Name is Earl - Great 1st season, Jason Lee is spectacular, really liked him in all the Kevin Smith movies. The 2nd and 3rd seasons had their moments but overall were kinda blah. 4th season seems to have returned to it's roots.

    Galaxy Rangers had the greatest theme song eva! And it was an awesome cartooon, one of the main characters was voiced by Jerry Orbach [of Law & Order fame].

    I would have UFC/Pride/IFL as my number one, but anything reality based I don't consider a show, just entertainment.

    I don't watch much TV or I'd never get anything done at home, but when I can catch them, I like..

    1. Bones
    2. Stargate
    3. House
    4. Smallville
    5. Most old TV shows.. I Love Lucy, The Waltons, Happy Days, Bewitched... and I actually got busted watching Gilligan's Island the other morning. :eek:

    Don't Forget The Lyrics is pretty fun to watch, too.

    I used to love Smallville, but I lost interest after about season 5.

    1. Burn Notice
    2. MASH
    3. West Wing
    4. That 70's Show

    Hummmm...there are so many he could choose for the #5 spot.

    No order but 5 of the main shows i watch

    1. Flight of the Concords(LOVE THIS ****)
    2. Scare Tactics
    3. True Blood
    4. Lost
    5. Terminator, Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    Serious if you dont want Flight of the Concords or Scare tactics you dont know what pure comedy you're missing.

    And true blood is an awesome new vampire serious on showtime and its getting crazy, there is mindereaders, vampires, shape shifters, and lots of sex and anna paquin tities.

    and just cause im weird i watch John and Kate + 8 cause you gotta have family values sometimes.

    For anyone that has not yet seen the show Deadwood, I HIGHLY recommend it. Also Entourage, Dexter, 6 feet under, etc. Anything from HBO/Showtime is usually golden.

    House is only worth watching to see how much of a ******* House is going to be and his quips.

    The stories are all the exact same:

    Person is ill
    Diagnose incorrectly
    House mulls it over & maybe takes some drugs
    Correct Diagnosis
    Yay, person is cured!

    Although that being said, House's one-liners and the way he treats his patients in some episodes are awesome. [I love the episode with the dwarf woman & her non-dwarf son.]

    But I bored of the same episode with different one-liners after season 3 and stopped watching.

    How it made
    Naked Science
    The Universe

    Why did they dumb down Discovery Channel last few years enough with the reality shows all ready.

    How can you stand to watch House? I dont need worry if I have a little cut on my arm means that I have some weird disease and I'm going to die in 2 days.

    Your list is almost identical to my own favorite tv shows. I like characters if they are not cookie cutter types. . thus I like House because he is a brilliant SOB. :)

    House
    Monk cuz he is weirdly brilliant comic too
    I like Psych too..the two of them are ..strange comic in their own right.
    And Cold Case/Bones tv shows...dead folks victims needing their cases solved.


    all the NCIS tv shows too,

    as top 4 or 5 tv programs I would tune into.
    ---
    plus all the various law and order etc. shows make ya think whodunit.

    I do watch the cooking channel sometimes ... the neelys and some of the others depends on what they cookin up.

    and the discovery channel sometimes if they doing something I am interested in.......IF !

    Red Green is awesome. I saw him when he came here for our public TV as he called it: 'beg-a-thon.'

    He was funny as all hell. It was basically a showing of 'Duct Tape Forever' and he intro'd and outro'd the movie in person.
