There are always some great “bubble” shows that may or may not get renewed because they just don’t have quite enough viewers. Here are my favorites that did make the cut:
How I Met Your Mother: I find this show more enjoyable than any other comedy on television. Watch The Office just plain makes me uncomfortable. If you know what “Swarley” and “Slap Bet” are, you know what I mean. Luckily CBS is keeping HIMYM around for another season.
Friday Night Lights: The best drama on TV. NBC needs some major hits since their ratings stink. This show is not a major ratings hit, but the critics love it. The writing and acting superb. Thank you NBC for having the courage.
Law & Order: This show has been on my entire adult life. 18 years and counting. The formula is sometimes a bit too rigid, but it obviously works. I’m glad the show will continue.
