My Name is Earl
The Office (yes...I realize it's the American version, and it's not as funny as the British version, but it's far and away better than anything else on American television.)
Besides those two shows, the only television I watch is on the History Channel. I am a history nerd.

I'm just going on what I've been told...mostly by Brits :p ...regarding the superiority of the British product.
The American version makes me laugh because I had a boss who was Michael Scott. Utterly unappropriate and crass at times.

ive seen a couple of episodes of the British version but never the american one,(i will try and catch one next time im over there) but i guess it wasnt really my sort of humour, i seem to find things like The Big Lebowski incredibly funny:)

I think the American version is funnier than the British. And it is indeed funny.
I'm also a fan of 24.

Family Guy is one of those shows that makes me laugh, but I can never seem to find the time to tune in on a regular basis.

I thought the BBC Office was a lot better than the American until I watched all of Season Two of the American version. Now I think they're both just as good as one another. There's something about Dwight that is just hilarious all the way through. Mackenzie Crook's character is the same way, but I think I can get more laughs out of Dwight.

I don't have cable hooked up in my room, so I don't watch much television. As soon as some of the thinks you all are watching get printed on DVD (Heroes, new season of Office and all that) I'll check them out.

Ooh, I'm actually with you there. I totally forgot about that show! It's so typical American hick-town drama.

You can't beat the surprise spruiker.

The best part is that their DVD says "or you could just download this off the internet," or something along those lines.

my favorite shows are: -the office (us version)
-lost
-entourage
and i have a question, i dont know if anyone else feels the same, but when something first comes out and i really like it, i get kinda pissed when it gets really popular at a much later time and everyone loves it after its been out for a while. lol i dont know if im crazy or what, but i was talking about that with my brother the other day and he said he feels the same way lol. so my question is, does anybody else feel the same as well?

You sound like a bitter REM fan from Athens after they started getting airplay on MTV.

No they aren't. Their early fans that watched them develop in Athens, GA were though.
As soon as they became a national act, those folks started ridiculing them for "selling out" and claiming that they were fans "when they were still good". It was as if the moment they played anywhere but the 40 Watt, their status was somehow diminished.
The reality was that most of these "fans" were elitist music snob/pricks.

as a musician myself i find elitist music snobs highly irritating, i like music for music irrispective of how much comercial sucess the band/artist enjoys, i love playing music and practice without fail for a good 2 hours per day, if one day i enjoyed commercial sucess from my music then that would be wonderful, if not its still something i will do with the same amount of passion and commitment no matter if i was playing to one person or 100,000.

Grey's Anatomy
Bones
Prison Break (it's really messed up lately, but still)
Gilmore Girls
Extras (though I rarely catch it)
and E.R

I very much owe E.R for showing me how a real spinal tap is done. When they performed one on me, the stupid doctors said it would be "nothing". Ha, right.
"General Anaesthesia, NOW!"

I haven't seen it yet, but my girlfriend DVR'd The Riches on FX. I'm a big Eddie Izzard fan, so I imagine this will be one of my new favorites.

Does anyone else enjoy Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job? It's an adult swim show, only about 12 minutes long, but I find these guys hilarious.

Any other watchers?

hasselbrad

Okay...The Riches is awesome. Funny, yet suspenseful, simply because their situation is so incredibly tenuous. For those who haven't heard of it, it's about a family of "travelers" (gypsies) who move from town to town conning people out of money. Now, they are posing as a dead family, while hiding from their own "family". One can only imagine the multitude of ways they could potentially be found out.

Comedy Central have purchased syndication rights and are planning 13 new episodes for 2008.
