(Almost) Every Show on TV, Venn Diagrammed

Esquire Venn DiagramJoshua David Stein of Esquire Magazine posted a cute Venn Diagram of the tendencies of television programming nowadays and where all the current shows fit into it. The diagram is titled "The Unified Theory of Prime Time Programming in the Year 2010."

Sadly, Mr. Stein has left out certain programs from within the diagram. Where is 'Mad Men?' That show should fall somewhere within the "Bureaucracy" and "Greed" categories. Other shows that don't appear are 'South Park,' which should go somewhere between the "Fat People" and "People Being Crummy" sections, and 'Chuck' which should fall between the "Wise Fools" and "Bureaucracy" sections. It was a bit of a laugh finding the categories between which 'American Idol' appears. One of them couldn't even be said on television.

So what do you think? Which shows are missing from the Venn Diagram and where do they belong? Which shows are miscategorized on the diagram? Are any categories missing from the diagram? Let us know in the comments.

I don't see How I Met Your Mother. Or NCIS (but that's just another forensics show, LoL)
