I second this. This decade has not been worse than any other decade in terms of television. In terms of my own tastes, I'm one of those weird people. I hate American sitcoms - the newer ones, anyway (Friends was funny, for, like a season. It got old really, really fast). Love older ones. Speaking of which, dear TV Land: give me back my Night Court reruns. And while we're at it, the Star Trek reruns at a normal time, kthnxbye.
I love Britcoms, though (Monty Python and Fawlty Towers for the win). Other than Britcoms, I'm inclined to watch sports shows, and sci-fi. I need my ESPN and NFL Network, and my reruns of Star Trek and its spinoffs. The reruns of TNG, DS9, and Voyager, are the only reasons why I watch Spike TV.
Currently running shows I'm into are LOST, Battlestar Galactica, and Friday Night Lights. That's about it, though.
