Now, let me just say off the bat that I do not believe these are the 50 best shows of this decade (although some certainly are). These are just the 50 television shows that brought me the most entertainment, the ones that I am most fond of when I think back on the decade. I contemplated doing this in order of love/respect but then this post would never get done so I’ll do a Top 10.
I decided to leave off The Simpsons and South Park because they’ve been on for so long (and I needed any excuse to make room for other shows) but they both had great episodes in the 00′s and if I didn’t need the room, they’d make the cut.
I tried to stick with shows that had at least two full seasons under its belt unless the show had been canceled like Freaks and Geeks.
And, no, I’ve never watched The West Wing or ER and that’s why they aren’t on the list.
