    3. How I Met Your Mother
    4. Supernatural
    5. White Collar
    6. True Blood
    7. The Mentalist
    8. New Girl

    There are tonnes of shows I've thought about trying though, so maybe a thread like this will give me a good idea of which ones I should go for!

    In no particular order:

    Castle
    Parks and Rec
    Boardwalk Empire
    The Walking Dead
    Breaking Bad
    The Newsroom
    Curb Your Enthusiasm (Jeff Garlin recently hinted that the new season will air next spring)
    Suits
    White Collar
    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

    I want to include 30 Rock considering it is still on the air for one more week, but it will just have to settle for an honorable mention (since its final episode is on Thursday).

    Dexter
    Shameless
    Game of Thrones
    Homeland

    I'm leaving AD off because it hasn't technically made its return yet and I wanted more space on my list, lol.

    Honorable mentions: The Walking Dead, Nikita, 30 Rock (still on the air 'til Thursday!), and The Hour (though I don't believe that's been picked up for a 3rd series yet, so that may not count)

    1. Breaking Bad
    2. Game of Thrones
    3. Boardwalk Empire
    4. Mad Men
    5. Curb your Enthusiasm
    6. Archer
    7. Good Wife
    8. I'll begrudgingly put Spartacus here even though it's not the same since Andy Whitfield died, no matter how much people wish that weren't the case.

    Hmmn.... Seriously I can't think of a 9 or 10. All the other shows I liked have either ended (The Wire) or they've turned bad (Dexter). And I'm not into the network sitcoms, so I haven't watched Community or Modern Family or the other shows that have gotten good buzz.

    EDIT: Okay I'll say 9. Walking Dead and 10. Fringe.

    Does Daily Show and Colbert Report count? Because I'd replace any of my last four with those two.
