    Re: Top ten shows on TV now.

    I guess we're going with shows that have a plot (or are supposed to), but I've got to weigh in with my two favorite shows:

    Mythbusters
    Ghosthunters (and believe it's fake or not, it's damn entertaining)

    Is it me or is The Wire starting to ingrain itself into the fabric of pop-culture a lot more lately (Despite the fact that it still draws the pathetic numbers it always has until the On Demand figures come back).
    I don't know. I've watched it since the first episode of the first season, because I knew it was a new cop show from the Homicide guy. Could be it's more popular now than it was, though. Maybe a lot of people checked it out on DVD and dug it?

    I'm not surprised if its numbers don't look good until On Demand is figured in. I don't bother watching or recording HBO shows on the night they air anymore, because I know I can catch them at my convenience via On Demand. I'm sure a lot of people are doing that.

    Since Deadwood is not on TV now and will only be back as a coupla HBO movies, I won't count it. I'll count shows coming back soon, though:

    The Wire
    Battlestar Galactica
    Lost
    Family Guy
    MI-5
    The Unit
    Scrubs
    CSI
    My Name Is Earl

    I'll go out on a little bit of a limb and add Studio 60.

    I also like The Office a lot, but it has started to have some of the qualities of the second season of the British original: i.e., it's still funny, but sometimes too focused on the boss, and too uncomfortable to be a favorite.

    ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT should be on these lists, people. Reruns on G4 = technically it's on TV now.

    I can't come up with ten...that's how much quality I've been able to find on TV right now. There's "Lost", "House"...not much else coming to mind right at this moment. Hopefully that will change with one or two of the new series this season but I'm certainly not actively expecting it.

    Re: Top ten shows on TV now.

    Is it too late to be entered in the drawing?

    1. The Wire. (plus all 37 hours on dvd before each episode to make sure I've got things straight)
    2. The Office.
    3. Charlie Rose. (unless it's all foreign leaders all week, a few are enough)
    4. Entourage.
    5. Simpsons. (reliving my youth by now)
    6. X-Files late night reruns. (ditto)
    7. This Old House/Ask This Old House.
    8. Lost.
    9. Scrubs.
    10. New ones that might make the cut: Studio 60, Shark, Heroes, Kidnapped, we'll see about The Nine.

    All these writers home all day and no one watches Ellen, Dr. Phil, Oprah or Martha? -- oh there is an Oprah ballot already cast. Adds an element of realism.

    There's a difference between shows I am around to watch, and shows I like. So, there's some shows I really like that I rarely see due to time pressure. And some that happen to be on when I can sorta get to a TV.

    Scrubs
    My Name is Earl
    The Office
    The Unit
    The Colbert Report
    Robot Chicken

    Shows I like but often am not around for:

    House
    Entourage
    How I Met Your Mother
    The Wire
    Rescue Me
    Without a Trace
    Cold Case
    Simpsons
    Lots of stuff on Adult Swim
