TV shows everyone should be watching

Here is a list of the BEST shows that I watch every week or will be watching once they return and I think that everyone should be watching (or at least give them a try). I'm rating these by how excited I am that they are coming on, when I start to get excited, how great the writing and/or acting is, and/or how much of an emotional roller coaster I may go on.
Such as with The Office and Supernatural, I can go from actually laughing out loud to tearing up/crying. Because if I am that emotional over a show they have made the show very well; that I feel about the characters and/or story. And with South Park it is just genius writing.

In order of air day then awesomeness.

Most of the other shows can be downloaded from or possibly through your favorite private tracker. Although these shows are actually worth buying.

I know there are a few missing shows that are coming back, I just can't remember them. Some of the show positions are kind of iffy, except for the top shows; it's hard to decide because some episodes and seasons are better than others. If you disagree with this list, then you are wrong. But please post your own list anyway, or a rebuttal, or reasons a show should be higher, or your own show that should be on the list, so that I may mock you.
