    I'm sorry, but Adult Swim cartoons shouldn't be in the top best shows of all time :wink: even though I love ATHF.

    Here is my short list:

    I Love Lucy

    Just Shoot Me
    Talk Radio (I think its gone forever now )
    The Drew Carey Show and Who's Line Is It Anyway
    Saturday Night Live
    The West Wing

    Just Shoot Me is soo classic, seriously the best stuff out there, Talk Radio was super great too but I haven't seen it forever. For some strange reason though I think I have the name wrong!? Does anybody know what show I'm talking of?

    Do you mean Sports Radio, I think it was that? If so, I really like that show too.

    I want to add "24", and Sopranos.
  9. Apr 16, 2003 #8
    No it's not Sports Radio, and its not talk radio either. I just remember it's News Radio. Man that was a great show. Oh and I've got to add That Seventies Show, Ashton Kutcher is a funny funny guy.

    I am obsessed with....

    Dragon Ball Z
    Ruromi Kenshin
    Yu Yu Hakusho
    Scientific American
    I Love Lucy
    Donna Reed(60's show)
    State of Grace
    Lizzie Maguire

    I know it sounds like I watch a lot of tv, but I barely do...(don't like it)

    lol yeah it's news radio, funny how we can both get the name wrong. I loved that show too, awesome cast! Also good catch on the 70's show, very funny indeed!

    LOL, 'You can't do that on Television'!!! I remember that!

    Oh, i forgot possibly the best (for the short series it was):

    The Young Ones

    (Rik Mayal (best known from the movie Drop Dead Fred), Adrian Edmondson, Nigel Planter, Alexi Sayle, and one other guy are the main five actors in it, and it was brilliant Uni student comedy from the British 80's...)

    I don't have cable or satellite and I can't stand shows being interrupted by ads every five minutes (sorry, it's the European influence in me). So I mainly watch public television. The News Hour with Jim Lehrer is slow enough and talky enough for my tastes. But I don't like the OLD British comedies on public television.

    Seinfeld is the best American show I have seen and the early Roseanne was good. I don't understand the Simpsons, nor do I understand the "humor" of Leno and Letterman. I don't think I have ever laughed at those shows.

    leno and lettermen suck conan is the best out of all that late night crap

    Daria (probably my favorite, but the rest are in no particular order)
    8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter
    Less Than Perfect (why did ABC have to drop that show? )
    According to Jim
    Mad About You
    Rocket Power (childish, I know, but I couldn't get enough of Twister)
    Whose Line Is It Anyway? (a true classic)
    The Three Stooges

    There are more, but I don't have time to post all of my favorite shows.
