Top Ten TV Shows Bloghop!

Since I did my last Friday Favorites on Premiere Season, what better than to do a post for a Blog Hop, hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, on my Top Ten TV Shows of All Time Ever?  Apropos, yes?

SO, here we go: my Top Ten favorite TV shows, in no particular order:

1) MASH: Hawkeye.  Hot Lips.  Radar.  Need I say more?
2) The Cosby Show: As a child, I wanted to have parents like like that; as an adult, I want to be a parent like that.
3) The Big Bang Theory: Nerdy, clever, hilarious.  Watch it.
4) Star Trek: Essential late-night viewing throughout my teenaged years.
5) Grey's Anatomy: Compelling drama + talented actors + medical jargon + Chandra Wilson as a bossy boss = WIN.  (For the actors in the crowd: THEIR EYELINES ARE AMAZING, THE DIRECTORS EVEN MORE SO.)
6) Arrested Development: Jason Bateman and Michael Cera struck gold with this comedy that takes "dysfunctional family" to a whole new level.
7) Glee: It's funny and smart.  And there's singing and dancing!
8) Get Smart: The ultimate spy spoof.
9) Desperate Housewives, Season One: Poked fun at the evening soap while simultaneously peeling back the layers that veil the true desperation of a Stay-At-Home Mom in a way that was brilliant, clever, and often poignant.
10) Planet Earth: Because I want to know EVERYTHING.

How about you?  What are your favorite TV shows?


Don't forget to check out all the other entries this morning; maybe you'll find a new show to love.

  2. I can not believe I left Get Smart off my list. What was I thinking? I think I will go sit under the cone of silence and contemplate my error until my shoe phone rings telling me that 99 needs me.

  3. Good choices! I tried watching Glee last Tuesday, but couldn't really get into it. The dancing and singing was great, but the cliches annoyed me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Fun choices!
    I have to rent the first season of Glee and catch up. I know I'd love it! I love music and dancing and everyone loves it!

  23. I've never watched Glee. I keep meaning too. I'd probably love it since I loved Fame when I was younger.

  24. I totally forgot about Get Smart. I loved that show...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Get Smart! Yes! I forgot that one. One of the L.A. stations picked that up in syndication last year and those guys are still funny.

    Great list, that rebel, Olivia

  26. Okay, obviously I need to see The Big Bang Theory. It's on just about everyone's list! I also love MASH, The Cosby Show and Get Smart.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, Planet Earth! That was another one cut off way too soon (for me, anyway). And now I think Star Trek is neck and neck with Firefly for most listed, if not quite beating it yet.

    I never heard of Get Smart until the movie came out, but after seeing the boxed set advertised, I thought I'd love the show.

    ReplyDelete
  28. If I had thought of MASH it would have gone on my list. I'm surprised not more people picked Glee though. Oh, and I loved Get Smart.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great picks! We have several in common.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think MASH and Get Smart both make my 2nd tier list... in fact had I been more awake, Get Smart probably would have made the first tier--I LOVED that show.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Star Trek - woo-hoo! And while I don't get to see the series Planet Earth, my husband bought the boxed set for me for Christmas a couple years ago. Fascinating stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  32. it's nice to see HOUSEWIVES and GREY'S ANATOMY in your list :) And who can miss STAR TREK!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Grey's anatomy makes me happy and so does arrested development.
    And Big Bang Theory is just one of the best shows on right now im so glad it starts again soon!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great list, I think there are a lot of Star Trek and Glee fans in this group~ I'll be watching the Season Premiere tonight~
