Our actual list is ordered by nite and primary viewing location, so these are the most watched shows from this past season but not in any particular order (other than my memory...)

1) CSI
2) CSI
3) CSI (yeah, got all three)
4) NCIS
5) The Unit
6) Crossing Jordan (Why did they get stupid and cancel this?)
7) Daily Show and Colbert (it's one manual recurring so, I'll cheat and list them together.) :)
8) Monk
9) Shark
10) Countdown with Keith Olbermann

Cheers,
Tom

BTW, also moved this to the OT since it really isn't just limited to the HR20.

On my Scheduled Recording list I have about 20 shows that are still active, I DVR about 20 shows, with about another 10 coming this season.

The only way I can judge my top 10 are how anxiious I am to watch them when I get home from work. The shows I must watch ASAP are.

Jericho
Criminal Minds
My Name Is Earl
Dexter
The Simpsons
Family Guy
South Park
Shark
All 3 CSIs

  • CSI Miami (CBS)
  • CSI NY (CBS)
  • On The Lot (FOX)
  • The Prince of Tennis (TOON) (possibly cancelled)
  • The Unit (CBS)
  • Criminal Minds (CBS)
Mind you, this is just first-run shows which don't repeat. I think The Prince Of Tennis has been removed from Cartoon Network's schedule. There are several shows which would be higner ranked except that they air multiple times. These shows are:
  • Code Lyoko
  • Dog The Bounty Hunter
  • Seconds from Disaster
  • Battlestar Galactica (new series)
  • World Poker Tour
  • Mythbusters
  • Life on Mars
  • Doctor Who
  • Drive (yeah yeah, I know it's cancelled)
  • Ice Road Truckers

Wow! Coincidence. All 10 are on our list almost in the same priority order. Only additions are Penn & Teller BS, and anything by Randolph Scott, Alan Ladd and Gary Cooper. We love the old westerns.
We may also be the only two people left in this country who have never watched, much less recorded, an episode of American Idle, Survivor, Big brother or any of the pseudo-reality shows. Also didn't know Jordan is canceled. Great show!
