Errm... I think they mean shows that are currently airing. Sopranos and The Shield aren't, otherwise they'd be on my list, too.

Arrested Development
Nip/Tuck
Law & Order SVU
Survivor
It Takes a Thief (Discovery channel.. two guys break into a house and give the owner a security make-over.)

Arrested Development isn't currently airing, either.

Have you somehow missed the baseball hiatus?

Good point. (Although I did forget since it's been one week and I've been watching the DVD set.)

But it's closer to being aired (and having aired) than The Sopranos or The Shield. That's my point.. it's not on a regular season-break hiatus.

People listed Scrubs and Six Feet Under, and you picked on Arrested Development?

I take your point as to The Sopranos, but The Shield is actually on its normal hiatus. In fact, the hiatus is shorter than its normal one due to the way FX juggled the schedule.

I suppose The Sopranos is also on its normal hiatus, but its hiatus length is irregular when compared to basically any other American TV show.

What I said on 4/12:

And the current list after the start of this season (no order)
Arrested Development
Smallvile
Veronica Mars
Lost
Supernatural

And 2 others who just missed the cut:
House
Prison Break

West Wing got the axe because I recently fell out of love with the current show. Same goes for The O.C.

Scrubs got axed because NBC decided to be mental and start it too late into the season.

That was the best example on the list of shows presented by the person I wanted to pick on.

Number 5 is tough. I think I'll do a top 4 and 4 runnersup:

RW/RR challenge (Inferno 2)
One Tree Hill
Shield
and just for the hell of it, I'll throw in a cancelled show: life as we know it
It's weird that this was only 6 months ago. Besides Lost and FG, my current favorites are a big surprise to me. AD, Scrubs, and GG have been disappointing me somewhat the past year. Looking forward to more RR/RW Challenge. Also looking forward to Shield, Thief, Rescue Me, and ...Philly since Nip/Tuck has gone so far downhill and Over There is good, but never great.

Lost
One Tree Hill
Veronica Mars
Family Guy
Medium

Favorite new show: Breaking Bonaduce
Favorite cancelled show: Starved

Also Battlestar Galactica, but it's on hiatus and would have made mine a list of 6, so I left it off.

Thats because it hasnt been on for nearly a year and we've still got a while to wait for season 4. So why waste a spot on it right now?
