Okay, obviously the networks keep loading on the crap just like every season, but sometimes there are a few winners and some real big stinkers.  Here are my choices:
Best- Birds of Prey.  I know it sounds retarded and the acting isn't perfect, but it's so delightfully addictive.  And they must be smart if they use Aimee Allen for the theme song.
Worst- American Dreams.  Could this be any sappier?  The teenage daughter dreams of dancing on American Bandstand.  The teenage son doesn't want to play football any more.  The younger daughter is an unenthusiastic brain.  The younger son with a leg brace wants to play football.  I watched one episode because Michelle Branch played Leslie Gore and performed "You Don't Own Me" and I realized it's like "State of Grace", a very good show, but without the humor and with a dash of Dawson's Creek tossed in.

I don't really know what's my best tv shows are but I do like:

Futurama
Simpsons
Buffy
Friends
Power Puff Girls
Grim and Evil
Red Dwarf

The show that I hate is Undressed.

There a few that I don't like but just too lazy to put them in.

Stop listing things that aren't new!

I think Birds of Prey is one of the worst shows ever. I can't believe there are people who like it.

At the moment, I can't think of any new shows that I like, but some other contenders for worst new show include: Bram & Alice, Still Standing, and That Fat Lady Show on ABC.

Hey, I haven't watched any non-cartoon television in a while. It's a good thing.

This would be "Tipping the Velvet" on BBC2, set in Victorian times. This got complains that it wasn't raunchy enough!

I'll give my worst show vote to American Dreams on NBC.  I haven't watched the show, but the commercials are making me sick.

American Dreams' cheesy retro 60's flair doesn't work in today's world. Their motives are swapped out of order. Why can't the brainy girl play football?  cry

I would go there and just be really boring. I'd be really really rude to everyone who tried to come on to me and screw over the whole point of the show. It can't be THAT hard for a coupel of weeks.

Wait, don't I need a girlfriend first. Aw nuts. Any takers  tongue

Does anyone else think that Star Trek Enterprise started better than other Star Trek spinoffs?

I mean, if you look at Voyager, the first few seasons sucked. In Enterprise, there have only been two or three episodes that I really disliked.

You fool! I would get someone to pretend to be my girlfriend, and then when we're on the show we can have as much sex with other people as we possibly can. Then at the end, we can have a really harsh break-up.

Pulling as in chatting up the girls, getting their phone number, and seeing if they get a kiss.

i thought ds9 was pretty cool too. it had a lot of interesting ideas. but character wise, nothing beats tos.
voyager got worse and worse with every season. at the end they had destroyed every law that star trek had established during the previous shows thus also destroying one of the most consistent sci-fi universes ever created. rick berman, if i ever meet you...

Yeah, but its all ok because they have the best instrumental theme music. I love those drums.

Also, Seven of Nine has a VERY nice rack.

I've been watching the show and I like it.  From the description of the show it sounds like a partial rip of Futurama, but I've found from watching it there's basically nothing in common.

I've seen two episodes of Firefly.  I'd say it's more of a Cowboy Bebop rip-off than Futurama.  There isn't a direct character for character transposition, but that's just the feeling that I get.

Best New Show: "Boomtown" (NBC)

I'm a sucker for crime dramas, and this show incorporates all the best elements.  Unlike most cop shows, "Boomtown" includes all points of view as they pertain to a crime.  The characters are generally believable and well acted by Mykelti Williamson (Heat, Con Air), Neal McDonough (Star Trek: First Contact, Minority Report), and even Donnie "I'm Not a New Kid Anymore" Wahlberg.  While the pilot episode wasn't a run-of-the mill pilot, it set up the format of the show for the rest of the series.  My favorite part is being able to watch through the viewpoints of the criminals and the third parties, something generally lacking in most police/law dramas I've seen.  In particular, I liked Doofus' little sub-story, as it was nearly completely unrelated to the storyline of the rest of the episode.  Although it's a bit hard to follow at times, "Boomtown" is fun to watch and makes it easy to forget that it's a drama.  Ray is consistently funny as a tubby, sarcastic, patrol officer.  Fearless is fun to watch with his cool demeanor and supply of quirks.

Last night's episode contained what I thought was easily the funniest five minutes of television I've ever seen.

I saw scenes from Firefly. It does remind me of a live-action Cowboy Bebop somewhat. And the girl in that suitcase reminded me of Melfina from Outlaw Star.
