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:

Seinfeld
M.A.S.H.
Cheers
I Love Lucy

Simpsons
Just Shoot Me
Talk Radio (I think its gone forever now )
Frasier
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.

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
Nova
I Love Lucy
Donna Reed(60's show)
STAR TREK!
State of Grace
Lizzie Maguire
ER


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.

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

I also loved News Radio,Adult Swim, and Conan in college, as did most of my friends. Interesting how similar our tastes tend to be. Also sorta funny how you can easily guess pretty much everyone here's age from the shows the listed.

Hmmm, no Friends, Sex in the City, soaps, or Ab Fab. Today's sociology assignment: what can you conclude about the average PF'er from this? :wink:

Sliders was good, until they killed off John Rhys-Davies' character at, I think it was, the end of season 3. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!? I love that guy.

For me,
Seinfeld
Babylon 5
Stargate SG1
Star Trek
Andromeda (just so fake it's funny)

But the best way to watch them is to buy the dvds and watch a whole season in at most a week. (When time is not a factor)

I'm an X-o-phile, too.

MST3K still rocks, even thought they've whittled it down to only about 10 episodes that they show over and over.

Monty Python

I can't believe Babylon 5 has only gotten one mention; I think it's the best show ever made!

And if I could find Daria I'd still be watching. Even in re-run, she' da bomb! Truthfully now, did any of you other guys ever have a crush on her?

I'm going to hop upon my soapbox for Sports Night. Brilliany writing, sharp cast...nothing beats it, as far as I'm concerned.
