In a post on Wednesday, I made the following declaration:
If you’re not watching [Friday Night Lights], and odds are you aren’t, you’re missing out on one of the best shows on TV.
But then I thought about it: how many shows on the air today would I consider “one of the best shows on TV”? So I compiled a list:
- Battlestar Galactica
- Friday Night Lights
- The Daily Show
- The Colbert Report
- The Office
- The Shield
Add to that the plethora of just-ended shows, like Rome, The West Wing, and Deadwood, and I have a pretty substantial list. So either there’s been a ton of great television especially recently, or my standards are low. What do you think? What’s your list of “the best shows on TV”?
