Top 25 TV Shows of the Decade: 2000 - 2009
By Aaron Wallace
The 2000s haven't been great for television. Inexpensive reality shows ruled the roost, product placement took a toll on storylines, networks were too quick to cancel new shows before they had a chance to grow, and an extended writers' strike hurled a jarring hiccup into established series' run. A handful of new shows managed to grab my attention, though, and I list 25 of those below. The titles included here reflect both my own appreciation for these series and their popular reception as indicated by ratings and life span.
