TV Bloggers Pick Top 5 New Shows 2006

Scooter McGavin got a bunch of us together to pick our favorite shows of the Fall season. He's posted them here.

Recently of few television bloggers including myself put together a list of the best new shows on television the season. And here is what we came up:

1. Heroes - NBC (2)
2. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - NBC (1)
3. Friday Night Lights - NBC (1)
4. The Nine - ABC (1)
5. Ugly Betty - ABC
*numbers in parentheses denote first place votes

Also recieving votes: Brothers and Sisters; Men in Trees; Ice-T’s Rap School; Dexter; Justice; Jericho; Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team

Voters: Ducky, Raelee, Scooter McGavin, Sheila, Tube Talk Girl, TV Fan

First off I guess I should mention that none of the voters are on the NBC payroll. But looking at the list, it looks like it’s a down year for new shows at least compared to recent years. Last year saw the return of the sitcom with My Name Is Earl and Everyone Hates Chris. The year before there was the debut of the two best shows this decade in Veronica Mars and Lost. And even the summer before those two aired was when Rescue Me started its run. Now keep in mind the list above does not reflect my personal tastes because I see enough ugly people in my everyday life that I have absolutely desire to see ugly people on my television, so in a measure of full disclosure here’s my ballot:

1. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (NBC)
2. Friday Night Lights (NBC)
3. Ice-T’s Rap School (VH1)
4. Dexter (Showtime)
5. Heroes (NBC)

As evident of the four different number one votes on the above poll, our television tastes vary a little, but if there is something that all of the voters can agree on is that you should be watching Veronica Mars if you are not already.

  • I guess if Scooter gave his Top 5 (for disclosure) I can give mine.

    #1. Heroes
    #2. Brothers & Sisters
    #3. Studio 60
    #4. Friday Night Lights
    #5. Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making The Team

    Yes, I'm the gaywad that picked the cheerleaders. Seriously though, if you're not watching it, you need to! Brilliance! Every second of its hateful heart.

    What are your picks folks?
