5.) Rescue Me - The show has come close to jumping the shark a couple of times. It looks like one of the more annoying characters has been killed off. That should make this next season more interesting.
4.) The Sopranos - It isn't as good as it used to be, but it still has it's moments. I'm hoping that a few more favs get whacked before everything is said and done.
3.) The Shield - Best written...Best acted.
2.) Survivor - There are still enough twists and turns to make the show enjoyable.
1.) 24 - The show has reinvented the Cliffhanger.
NOTE: I've dropped Battlestar Galactica from the list completely. I stopped watching the show. I would have to say that the rescue at the beginning of the season was probably one of the best moments in TV. It was everything that Star Wars Episode III should have been in regards to being dark, gritty and thrilling. The boxing episode...Stupid. Apollo getting fat...What? It has turned into a Soap Opera. The characters are not very likable. I think the Cylons are more human than the humans.
