My Top 10 Favourite Shows

House
By far the best show I have ever followed and since day one I have never missed an episode. Hugh Laurie does a superb job as the Holmes-esque, socially inept diagnostician. It's by far the most intelligent TV show going and I hope it continues for many years to come.
See the full review, "By Far, The Best Medical Show Ever.".

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Next to House, this is the only show I follow. I have a strong admiration for Stewart as, although he's clearly left wing and opposes a lot of the right wing ideologies, he's a man who's open to discussion when it's intelligent and based in reality.
3
American Dad
Clever and has more of a narrative than Family Guy. American Dad focuses around the family life of a Republican voting CIA agent who wants to represent the image of what the true American family should be. How exactly they accomplish that with a pet alien and a talking fish is anybodies guess.
4
Lois, Stewie, Peter, Brian, Meg, Chris & Brian
It's random, it's messed up, and yes, recent seasons haven't been very good. But, I still rate this very highly as it's a show that can still have me roaring with laughter.
5
Pineapple Dance Studios
It's camp and its eccentric. What should really just be the typical documentary type show looking at the lives of the usually ignored dancers, this has turned out to be a runaway success as the production company realised the comic value of some of the participants of the show and focused it solely around them. A superbly funny and original show that should be enjoyed by all.
6
The Simpsons
Since about season 10, The Simpsons has been utter trash, but I have included it in the list as I do still watch the show on a regular basis and rate it as one of the all time greats.
7
Bones
I used to really love this show as it was both clever and funny. The chemistry between the two main stars was one that really worked and the supporting cast provided a lot of the comic relief for what should be a very serious show. In recent seasons, the show seems to have lost its way and I have kind of fell out of love with it, though I do still catch the odd episode from time to time.
8
lie to me
Starring the magnificent Tim Roth as a man who can read faces. You can hide nothing from him as the show is based around the premise of Micro-Expression revealing in a nano-second your true feelings. This lead me into studying more on the subject of micro-expression and it is, in fact, a really interesting subject.
9
The O'Reilly Factor
Although it isn't really a no-spin zone, O'Reilly strikes me as someone with his own mind but who comes across as someone who accepts the alternative opinions of others. Sure, he may mock protestors at rallies for causes he doesn't approve of, but don't we all do that? Also, aside from the smugness, he seems like a man who, when faced with it, would do the right thing.
10
True Blood Logo
A vampire show that really set the tone for what vampire shows should be. Filled with sex, swearing and violence, what more could a guy ask for in a show set in the south where the minority prejudiced against are vampires?

What did you think of this list?

I very much agree with you on Bones and House. I think Hugh Laurie is magnificent in his role as House and I'm not watching Bones as much anymore either, though part of that is because Survivor is on right now and I am not wild enough about Bones at the moment to DVR it to watch later.

Nice list, Steveo! Though I must admit, it's very odd seeing #2 and #9 on the same list :P Thanks for sharing!
