What do you think the best non-cartoon TV shows are?

The Daily Show, Reno 911, and other stuff on comedy central is great.   Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO is awesome, even if you hate politics.

What else is good?

Currently I actually think The Daily Show  is the best show on television, animated or otherwise.  Also started watching Bill Maher's show recently, seems good so far.

Other then that no other live action shows in my current viewing.  But of all time there's stuff like The Wonder Years and The Twilight Zone.

American Shows:
The Late Show/Late Night/Daily Show
Wrestling
Arrested Development
A-team
Seinfeld


Canadian Shows:
Puppets Who Kill
Made In Canada
Monday Report
Old episodes of Red Green
and Trailer Park Boys can be OK sometimes. Not often though.

British Shows:
Blackadder
Monty Python
Whose Line is it Anyway?
Father Ted

There are probably others, but those are the ones I'd watch if they were on right now. Being in Canada, I get British, Canadian, and American TV. It's awesome.  tongue

As far as current shows go, The Daily Show and Arrested Development are basically all I watch. Older shows, like All in the Family, Taxi, MASH...they're among the best as well.

I like Reno 911, Insomniac, The Shield, Rockford Files reruns, and in the fall I'm going to watch Hawaii and LAX.  Sometimes when I'm bored, I'll watch Law and Order. I ,too, also like MST3K and Monty Python.
