The 20 best television shows of the 2000s. (You're welcome.)
It’s hard to name your favorite shows on any given day, let alone narrowing down the chosen few that really stood out in a decade that saw TV pull a complete 180, from a mere distraction to a revered cultural pastime.
But that’s what we’re here to do. As a decade, the ‘00s were defined by both a lack of a cohesive moniker and some of the best television series ever produced. And while more than a few familiar faces are exempt for debuting in the late '90s—sorry, "Sopranos"!—we think you’ll agree that this lot is more than up to snuff. Or maybe not.
