Rank them as you see them (New show edition)

I liked the idea for movies, and figured for the next few weeks I'm going to be watching more tv than movies. Same rules apply 1 post per person, edit them as you watch more. Rank them however you see fit. Separate into categories (drama, comedy, 30min, 1 hour, network, basic, premium, blah) if you want.

My rankings thus far (best to worst/top to bottom):

Saw, Enjoyed, will continue to watch:
Love Monkey
Prison Break
Rome
Supernatural
Bones
Kitchen Confidential (canceled)
Big Love
How I Met Your Mother
Everybody Hates Chris
Out of Practice (canceled)
Criminal Minds

Few more Chances:
Night Stalker (canceled)
Killer Instinct (canceled)
Threshhold (canceled)
Reunion (canceled)
My Name Is Earl
E-Ring (canceled)
Surface (canceled)
Invasion
Ghost Whisperer

Meh, will watch if nothing is on:
Twins (canceled)
Extras (will be catching it on demand)
The War at Home

Tried to watch, but failed/will no longer watch:
Just Legal (canceled)
Head Cases (canceled)
Sex, Love & Secrets - Oh god I can't believe I wasted 6 minutes trying this (canceled)
Commander In Chief (canceled)

Premiers I probably won't even bother to watch:
Apprentice: Martha Stewart (canceled)
Love Inc. (canceled)
Inconceivable (canceled)
Three Wishes (canceled)
Hot Properties (canceled)

Bones is about the only thing I've watched so far this season I'm not sure how much longer I'll stick with.

But, the premieres are just beginning.

I'm definitely tuning in for Rome every week.

I've stopped watching Prison Break. If it goes a full season and I hear that it gets better, maybe I'll pick it up on "DVD" this summer. I did that with Veronica Mars this summer and it worked out pretty well.

Based on the screeners of the pilots, I'm looking forward to My Name is Earl. The Ghost Whisperer, however, was horrible. The show totally fails to showcase Jennifer Love Hewitt's charms. Also, it's just a bad show.

I don't really know enough about any other shows to say whether I'm interested in watching them or not. I've actually come to rely on browsing the threads in this forum to find out which shows are interesting.

edited to add: I also watched the pilot of Reunion and it's in the same boat as Prison Break. I'm going to pass on it for now.
