How about "Shows that didn't make it, but should've".

Anyone here watch "SportsNight"? I've got the whole thing on DVD. It was very well written and acted.

Top all time is the Simpsons, by far.

Wasn't all that big a fan of the critic, but I did like greg the bunny. SportsNight was great also.

Anyone else like Boomtown?

It had a pretty cool concept of showing crimes from various points of view. So the first few minutes for example might be the cops point of view, then the victims, then reporters, then the prosecuting attorney, etc. Critically raved, but not much of a ratings success

I don't know if I can actually label them in any order sicne they are so different from one another, and I enjoyed each one, so here is a list in no particular order:

1- Friends
1- Frasier
1- Cheers
1- Taxi
1- Simpsons
1- Southpark
1- Sportscenter (that counts right?)
1- The Cosby Show
1- Quantum Leap

There are some up and coming shows that I really enjoy now, like Las Vegas, Scrubs, Everybody Loves Raymond,and of course King of the Hill gets a thumbs up. I am surprised that the Family guy was cancelled, that was a very funny show. Maybe it was too dirty for primetime or something.

I really liked the critic, but it's not a top all time show. Greg the Bunny sucked.
I have a friend that keeps trying to get me to watch According to Jim, and every time I cave in and watch it with him, it sucks. (just thought I'd share there)

Thanks to remarkable DVD sales, Family Guy is actually coming back to FOX and I think also the Cartoon Network in 2005 with brand new episodes. I know I'm excited about it

Among my favorites are...

Simpsons
Cheers
Seinfeld
Frasier
Good Times
All in the Family
Sopranos (anyone else even say that yet?)
X-Files
Star Trek (original/TNG/DS9.. don't like the last two)
Dream On (HBO series from the early 90's.. it was hysterical. Michael McKean was an occasional character on it. Any TV with McKean is apt to be damn good!)
Dick Van Dyke Show
I Love Lucy
Larry Sanders Show
Hill Street Blues
Law and Order
Malcolm/70's Show
ER (used to love it, though I haven't really watched it in about four years)
Shark Week on Discovery !!!!!!! (probably doesn't count, but every year, I always stop what I am doing to watch it)

And of course, if I were still seven, the Six Million Dollar Man and Battle of the Planets would be the coolest things going.

Last but not least, the funniest show on TV today is without a doubt, Arrested Development (Sunday 9:30 on FOX) The time slot sucks, but that's what TiVo is for! It's produced by little Opie Cunningham (Ron Howard) and about a really screwed up family. It's twisted, perverse, completely off-the-wall, intelligent and just piss in your pants funny. Like Seinfeld, it's full of extremely selfish, mysogonistic characters and pretty much has no redeeming societal qualities.

Little House on the Prairie it ain't.

I'm glad I TiVo it. In fact. I have never made it through an episode without having to pause it because I can't stop laughing. I highly highly highly recommend it!

I just saw an ad that Greg the Bunny was on dvd now and it has 2 unaired episodes as well so I thought I'd let any other fans of that show know there was a dvd out for it now.

I know this shows how much of a dork I am, but the only shows I would gladly fork over practically anything they asked for in order for them to be brought out on dvd are the Thundercats and the 90s X-Men cartoon series.
