Top10 TV channels

Yes, I'm ranking my favorite television channels... don't judge me.

Comedy (30 Rock, Conan, The Office, SNL, Notre Dame football) and Drama (Friday Night Lights, Southland, Heroes, Olympics) plus TV's #1 slot: Sunday Night Football

HBOTrue Blood, Hung, Entourage, Bill Maher, 6' Under, The Wire, Curb, Flight of the Conchords, Eastbound & Down... stellar lineup and the commercials are absent.

Daily Show, Colbert Report, South Park, and Tosh.0 put this channel tops among basic cable. The late-night (often uncensored) stand-ups are DVR gold

TRU-TVCops, Speeders, awesome car chases and a slew of titles that begin with "Most Shocking/Extreme/Horrifying" have me a fan of reality TV. (Not reality, actuality!)

NOVA and Nature alone put PBS in the top five (although American Experience and random nudity are bonuses) and oh, guess what, NO COMMERCIAL BREAKS

Not only does it stream live stats, it's mildly entertaining, uber-political, tech savvy, scientific, and often internationally newsworthy

Simpsons, 24, Family Guy, Cops, American Idol (I only watch the auditions), NFC Football, Nascar, MLB

Lost, AFV, Scrubs, Jimmy Kimmel, College Football, Bowl games, NBA and golf. (and I hear Dancing With The Stars and Greys Anatomy are pretty entertaining too)

Colts, How I Met Your Mother, 2½ Men, CSI, Price is Right, golf, and March Madness

NBA Playoffs, Law & Order, CSI, and Braveheart re-runs, because thats more believable drama than whatever ESPN, MTV or E! puts out. (Exceptions: live sports, Run's House and The Soup)

Top 12 Comedy Podcasts

I'm not calling this a list of my favorites, because I know this to be fact, not opinion: Kill Tony T.Y.S.O. Bad Friends Are You Garbage...
