    What do you think are some of the best TV shows on that nobody seems to watch?

    Well i would say 24. Its a excellent show which hasnt had stellar ratings.

    Also would have to mention The Chronicle on Sci-Fi . Its become a hit for fans of the channel but people who only watch major network shows are missing a fun show

    Right now, the dead-show-walking "The Tick"; it's "Seinfeld" with superheroes (and humor), but Fox's creative scheduling hasn't helped it any.

    Sad to say, I'm probably part of the problem right now - I've heard great things about "100 Centre Street", but haven't watched, and I actually have no idea whether or not "The Lot" is still on AMC. Trying to keep track of everything on Sunday and Tuesday has maxed out my TV-viewing time; it's almost reaching the point where I wouldn't mind a little attrition.

    Special Unit 2.

    Not many people are watching, but it is actually quite a fun show.

    Undeclared on Fox

    The rumor is that the show is in danger and that the network cut down its order by a few episodes. This is a very witty and well-observed look at college, and certainly has had the most laugh-out-loud moments I've seen in a sitcom in a LONG time.

    I would say Sliders. I seem to be the only one watching that show where I am. It's not that the show is that good, but Kari Wurher is so hot! :b
    Andromeda would be another choice too. I dunno, I kinda like the characters in that show. I'm currently watching it while typing this post. [​IMG]

    Despite no advertising and shitty scheduling, Andromeda actually has quite a following. I'm not part of that following, but I know it's out there...

    The Family Guy. I'm shocked the ratings for this show aren't through the roof. The show is so funny I laugh my ass off every episode. In fact, I now consider it my favorite show on TV today.

    I've heard extremely good things about The Job but it's up against The West Wing so it doesn't have much of a shot.

    100 Center St and the Tick are good calls. Also Home Movies and the Invisible Man.

    "The ReEducation of Max Bickford" is well written, well acted and makes very intelligent comments on difficult subjects. It also does reasonably well at making informed and multi-sided arguments on those same subjects. At the same time, it has some soap-opera-like story lines that keep things moving. Finally, because it centers around a college History professor, it is also educational!!

    Once & Again.
    This show is so well-written and well-acted. I hope ABC finally gives it a good slot after relegating it to Friday nights this season and putting it on hiatus. It's supposed to come back on Monday nights which would be great.

    Not enough people are watching The Gilmore Girls -- the best shown on tv in years. Another vote for Undeclared, too (which airs opposite Gilmore). What the hell are people watching on Tuesday nights that is better than this? It's the only night I watch tv.

    My pick would be Millennium which no one watched. Too bad becuase the first 2 seasons were really great.
    The second half of the second season with the whole Cross of Christ, Owls and Roosters stuff was some of the best television Iver EVER seen.
