Top Ten Shows of the Decade

I thought I should follow the annoying internet trend and make a list of the tope ten shows of the decade.  But since I’m lazy and I hate the idea of a top ten list of anything I’ve decided to put as little effort as possible into this list. (I do like reading other peoples lists, but it’s hard to rank my favorite shows.  Also I don’t think anyone is objective enough to rank these shows, the decade has barely ended, how do we know that Modern Family is so good and Community isn’t?).   So instead of writing about shows and running out of enthusiastic adjectives I’m creating a photo list:

This is just a list of all the TV shows I’ve recently watched and shows I’m going to be watching quite soon.

TV Shows I watch

What did you have planned this summer?  Hopefully it didn’t involve anything outside because I want each and every one of you to watch one or all of the shows on that list (start at the top for the best results).  Let’s do a quick analysis of where you are now in your TV watching habits:

If you only watched one or two of these shows then you have a lot of work to do.

Hijack: Sit Down, Shut Up


Two hijacks on one weekend, sorry everyone.  This really is a Lost blog, I promise.

Tonight FOX is adding another cartoon to it’s Sunday night schedule.  This time Seth Mcfarlane isn’t doing half the voices.  This new cartoon was created by Mitch Hurwitz, the genius behind Arrested Development.  It makes me very sad that he had to go back to FOX with this show, but I guess that’s what it took to get it on the air.

Sit Down, Shut Up isn’t going to be as funny as Arrested Development, nothing ever will be, but if it can capture any of that hilarity it will be good.  The voice cast is great, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Will Forte, Kenan Thompson, Henry Winkler, Kristin Chenoweth and Cheri Oteri.  These aren’t just hilarious people, they have great voices too (exept Jason Bateman, I’m glad he’s there but his voice isn’t memorable).

Anywho, I think we should give this show a few chances simply for Mitch Hurwitz’ sake.  The Arrested Development movie is still on the way, and this is a nice diversion until then.

Sundays at 8:30 on FOX.

508 Ratings

Here are the Nielsen ratings for the last episode of Lost:

508 – LaFleur

10.61  million viewers

4.9/12  18-49 viewers

Better than last week.  It’ll be interesting to see if Lost has less viewers in two weeks when the lead in isn’t the previous episode.  ABC is premiering Better Off Ted at 8:30.  Up until now they have been able to air the prior episode at 8pm before the new one at 9pm.  It’s handy in case you missed the last episode, but I wonder if people depend on it, we’ll see.

On a side note, I’m going to watch Better Off Ted, It’s partially because of my devotion to all things Arrested Development (Portia De Rossi is in Better Off Ted), and also becuase it actually looks pretty funny.  Then again, it might be a mistake, ABC isn’t known for it’s comedies.
