What is THE BEST show on television?

question markAfter this season's nominations, we all know that the Emmys are a load of crap. Now the television critics over at TV Week think they know what are the best shows on television. In a semi-annual poll, critics voted Lost and The Sopranos as their favorite shows. Grey's Anatomy ranks No. 3. They also voted Unan1mous and The War at Home as the worst shows on television. Battlestar Galactica moved up to No. 11 and Desperate Housewives fittingly dropped from No. 2 to No. 23.

While I won't disagree on their picks for the worst programs, I do disagree on their choices for best television. This season's Lost wasn't so hot and The Sopranos seems tired. My hands-down favorite television program right now is The Office (tied for 19th among the critics). This season, I came to adore the characters. Everytime I hear the music for the opening credits, I can't help but bounce on the couch and clap my hands like a two-year-old.

What do you think is THE BEST show on television? Choose only one.

There were a lot of great shows this season and the Emmys just didn't justify that. The best show on T.V right now and one of the best of all time would have to be Rescue Me. No other show is that funny and that sad at the same time.

Honourable Mentions:
Rockstar
The Office

Definately "Battlestar Galactica" is number one, with "Smallville" coming in second. The Stargates come in third.

I believe they said that the Office was actually 6th this year, up from 19th LAST year.

And yeah, the Office, Scrubs, and Veronica Mars are all close for me. Not sure I can choose.

BSG & LOST

Don't make them fight people- they're both amazing shows that break out of the bounds of pedestrian give-me-a-paycheck dribble.
