A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club.

Stars: Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Kim Coates

Votes: 210,152

A rough and grissly revisioning of Hamlet with Harleys, a wicked Queen, a self-centered King and an entourage of wonderful characters. Sadly the last season pulled it down.

Old-school U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is reassigned from Miami to his childhood home in the poor, rural coal-mining towns in Eastern Kentucky.

Stars: Timothy Olyphant, Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter, Jacob Pitts

Today's Gunsmoke. The dirt of the Kentucky hills being kicked up by a no-nonsense, quick to shoot Marshall, a tough guy that got his clock tuned in the first season to show he's not superman.

A spy recently disavowed by the U.S. government uses his special ops training to help others in trouble.

Stars: Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell, Sharon Gless

Votes: 62,136

What I consider a quilty little pleasure. In the vein of so many that have come before, a tough-guy helping the helpless with minimal, if any casualties. (think of the A-Team, et al.) But something about the pilot episode was so appraciable that it got me hooked. Plus it has Bruce Campbell in it!

Inside the lives of staffers in the West Wing of the White House.

Stars: Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe, Allison Janney, John Spencer

Excellent writing delivered by an outstanding cast. Each and every episode provides amusement, an opportunity for reflection, and some educational point.

Revolves around a family of New York cops.

Stars: Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Len Cariou

Votes: 25,142

Wonderful cast in a show that stretches its range without trying to reach too far in any direction. The family members are just enough alike and yet just different enough to be a real family.

Detectives from NYPD's 15th squad investigate homicides within their precinct. An Emmy award winning series.

Stars: Dennis Franz, Jimmy Smits, Gordon Clapp, James McDaniel

Votes: 9,738

Did an excellent job of walking that fine line between dirty-dirty cops and just doing what they had to to close cases and save lives. Not being a C.S.I. Miami fan I shudder to think how David Caruso could have ruined what turned out to be an excellent series.

A hedonistic jingle writer's free-wheeling life comes to an abrupt halt when his brother and 10-year-old nephew move into his beach-front house.

Stars: Jon Cryer, Ashton Kutcher, Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell

Votes: 214,066

Yes the first few seasons were the best, but not because of or in spite of anyone in particular, except maybe Angus T. Jones and his age. The dynamics of that just allowed for so much hilarity. Now with Ashton there it is just as funny (or as not-funny depending on one's view) as the last 2 1/2 seasons with Charlie.

Stars: Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg

Sheldon's character is hilarious. To have thought that up, and been able to deliver it, both in writing and acting... the people responsible are astounding. The rest of the cast are equally talented of course, adding to the entire process.

Stars: Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Taylor Wily, Daniel Dae Kim

Votes: 55,455

Never saw the original but I doubt it was as fun as this. Altho I don't always like how they solve the case, I do always enjoy the relationships of the characters and the head-on-attack method of McGarrett

Votes: 5,421

A re-write of Boston Legal (also on this list) by D. Kelly that might actually end up being removed from this list... The first season was great. The cases were as brassy and fun as Harry. This recent season it seems softer altho they have tried to keep it's fun with lines like "And you... Stay away from his penis."
