    Just off the top of my head:

    South Park
    Archer
    Louie
    Always Sunny
    Parks and Rec
    Mad Men
    Breaking Bad
    Walking Dead

    And I can't even come up with two more shows that I watch. Jeopardy maybe? I'll probably like Game of Thrones whenever I actually get around to watching it.

    Drama:

    1. Breaking Bad
    2. Justified
    3. Supernatural
    4. Sons of Anarchy
    5. Boardwalk Empire
    6. Game of Thrones

    I will give a honorable mention to Spartacus because of the second half of Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena.

    Comedy:

    2. Curb Your Enthusiasm
    3. Louie
    4. Modern Family

    I'm surprised to see all the love for Justified. I bailed after a few episodes because it was terrible. I guess it got better?

    I thought the first season was cool, but unspectacular. A bit like a more adult Burn Notice. Second season took it to the realm of first season Damages.

    What I liked about the first season of Justified was that it showed you that a procedural can still tell an interesting story.

    I'm surprised more of you didn't list Sons of Anarchy. It's loosely based on Hamlet.

    In no order

    Sons of Anarchy
    Shameless
    Peep Show (UK)
    Breaking Bad (tho I think the new season was mostly a snoozer)
    Community
    The Walking Dead (despite uneven writing in season 1)
    Sherlock (UK)
    Dexter
    Boardwalk Empire
    Game of Thrones

    So?

    I'd put Justified over Sons of Anarchy. Sons of Anarchy, I thought last season got too bogged down in Ireland and it's still too early in this season for me to decide if it rises above shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, etc.

    Comedies in no particular order: South Park, Louie, Curb, Sunny, Eastbound and Down, Parks and Recreation, Archer, Wilfred, Community, and Comedy 10. I'm sure I'm forgetting one. I'd want to say Futurama, but I don't know

    Dramas INPO: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Justified, Damages, Game of Thrones, Sherlock (if that counts), I need to think more.

    Most people would agree with you. The thing is, the creators recognized their mistake and it seems like they're back on track with the new season.
