I saw with the Chocolate News thread people talking about how TV sucks nowadays. I didn't want to derail that thread though. But really, just like music, there's amazing stuff in an ocean of shit that sticks out. Every era had and will have horrible shows. Most die after a season or so. (Or if you're Fox 3 episodes because it didn't score American Idol's number of viewers) But people remember the good ones, the great ones. Try and watch Dexter or Weeds then tell me television has gone to Hell.

I usually just watch Discovery, History, or Comedy Central when they have Scrubs, Daily Show, Colbert Report, or standup comedy on. A lot of stuff is crap.

I'm perfectly fine with the History, Discovery, Travel, and Cooking channels.

I watch Seinfeld and the Simpsons on Fox, not so much Family guy anymore, every time I see a new episode I feel like I've already seen it. Aside from that, I just watch Top Gear on BBC America every monday.
#8
Colbert, Stewart, Family Guy, Sunny, Office, South Park, Heroes, Battlestar, Stargate.

It's pretty good right now.

I really don't watch TV anymore. Usually, unless it's something that I need to be informed about, like sports or current events, I don't bother. Any show that's worthwhile, like Heroes, Lost, etc, I can buy in High Definition a few months after the season ends. With better resolution, no commercials, and discs that I can view at my leisure, it's a great trade off from not being immediately informed as a friend or two that are rabid fans of a certain show.

And...what channel are those shows on again?

Oh. Right. The one you have to pay extra for.

Basic cable = Nothing good other than Futurama reruns.

Scrubs
House
Fringe
CSI (not Miami or NY)
Family Guy
The Simpsons
American Dad
The Daily Show
The Colbert Report
The Office
Mythbusters


There are loads of great TV shows, IMO.

I think the issue is kids television. Nick was great back in the day. Kid's tv is garbage now but there's still some good stuff on for others.

That statement I will agree with. Last decent kids show I saw on any station was Billy and Mandy. And that's been around for quite awhile.
