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.

Almost all shows I watch now are on ESPN and FSN.

What a shame.
The sad thing is how unnecessary it is.

South Park is a good example--they've done some brilliant social commentary, but they louse up the show with bathroom humor.

There are still some really good shows on, and stuff that would have never been greenlighted when there were only 3 networks since the medium is so fragmented now. Some really good shows that I watch:

Mythbusters
Survivorman
Man vs. Wild
Dirty Jobs
The Office
Dinner For Five
X Play

Some great series that I've watched lately:

Rome
The Tudors
Planet Earth

IFC and Sundance show some great independent films that don't make theaters.

I actually usually end up on ESPN, ESPN2, or Fox Sports...

At school its the NFL Network
Dirty Jobs and Deadliest Catch aren't to bad either.

Military Channel.
History Channel (also international history channel).
Discovery Channel (also DTMS).
Science Channel.
HBO (mini-series even though they are now lacking IMO and documentaries).
ESPN Classic, ESPN and ESPN2 for scores and updates.
NFL network.
Family Guy.
Steelers 24/7 on Comcast OnDemand.
Sports Beats on FSN Pittsburgh.
Nightly Sports Call on KDKA
Sound off on KDKA

Besides those channels/shows, I hate tv. I hate the reality tv craze even more.

if i had to recommend something to someone who didnt have access to sattelite or cable i would definitely say:

House

Boston Legal

the Simpsons (even though their better years are behind them, no cartoon can bump them and they are still better than most sitcoms)

"According to Jim" is pretty funny for the die hard sportsfan/familyman

There hasn't been a good sitcom on network TV since Cheers aired it's last show. And I really wish the reality show craze would die a slow, painful, agonizing death. Thanks MTV!

I mainly watch the Discovery networks (all of them), National Geographic channel, BBC America (sometimes), FSN, NFL Network, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, FOX for Family Guy and Comedy Central for South Park, and that's about it.
