"Favorite" TV Show Tournament: Selection Thread(Please Post Your Top 10)

What 10 TV Shows do(did) you enjoy the most? The shows don't need to be current. The order of the list is not important.

What I will do:

I will keep a master list with the # of appearances of each show on people's top 10 lists. Any show that appears more then once will be eligible for the tourney. This thread will stay open for about a week. If lists are still coming in, I may even leave it open longer. After this thread is closed I will seed out the tournament based on the # of appearances for each show. Once the seeding is done we will have a single elimination tournament using polls on this forum. I will set up the actual bracket online so we can all watch the progress of the tourney.

I will take top 10 lists through Monday 5PM ET.

My list of 10
X-Files
Lost
Cheers
Seinfeld
Everybody Loves Raymond
Sopranos
Oz
MacGyver
CSI
The A-Team

...It's really hard to condense my list to 10 when including comedies. I'm just hoping the ones I left off get named by others. Maxflier, you got one of them (Ali G) so I'm just hoping it gets one more mention. BTW, have you seen his UK show?

...edit: nice list Noir, how did I forget The Wire. Oh well, I'm sure it will get at least one more nomination.
