    Best Shows on TV Right Now?

    I know we've had several threads about the best TV shows ever, but what are the best shows airing currently?

    My picks:

    Community - so creative and different, interesting characters, innovative storylines.
    Parks & Rec - Tom Haverford is awesome.
    30 Rock - I hope this last season is great.
    It's Always Sunny - It's been a little downhill the last few seasons, but still the darkest humor on TV right now.
    Downton Abbey - I know not many others will know this, but it's incredibly written and acted.

    I tried to watch American Horror Story, but it scared the crap out of me - what I did watch was very good.

    I think the new season of DA starts Sunday in England, but we don't get it until January? BOOOO.

    I have been really interested in Portlandia, haven't caught it. Same with Breaking Bad.

    Modern Family is pretty good, and it nice to have an old fashion type of family sitcom.

    Re: Best Shows on TV Right Now?

    A few of my favorites:
    Suits: More of a male drama, but I enjoy the banter the characters have back and forth. The love triangles are starting to get ridiculous
    Psych: Enjoy the show for its good clean humor. They also do have some pretty good themes in their episodes. I also like how they change their intro.
    Sons of Anarchy: Watched the premier last night and I was really impressed.

    We really like Psych, although I haven't caught the last few seasons. Gus is a great character.

    Psych is hilarious. Its sweet how they change the intro based on the theme that they are doing for that episode. Others to watch: Suits, Criminal Minds, HIMYM

    Really into Alphas and Hell on Wheels. I watch all of the comedies you listed, but for dramas with action, these two are top notch.

    Community - Goth Britta was oddly hot
    Parks & Rec - I will see your Tom Haverford, and raise you one Ron Swanson (especially when he hooks up with his exes or goes out dancing)

    American Horror Story was incredibly dark, but had me hooked from the opening scene with the twins and the girl with down-syndrome. The first season was incredibly good. Connie Britton is great.

    As far as an old show that i recently finished, Jericho did a great job of wrapping up its story arch with a fulfilling second season. If only lost had had that kind of foresight (and I still liked the ending).

    This thread will not be complete with a mention of Archer. The reigning funniest show on TV.

    Also have to mention some premium channel stuff: Game of Thrones, Dexter, Shameless, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Yeah I like Gus and Lassy. Some things that they are talking about in season 7 are a love interest for Gus, a musical episode, and a Clue episode.

    bstegs - You're right, Ron Swanson is fantastic. I love his adoration of breakfast and dark-haired women. For some reason, him + Tom at the strip club last season killed me.

    Archer is pretty great, too. I haven't seen any Dexter since the first season, we cancelled HBO, but it was good.

    Re: Best Shows on TV Right Now?

    Shark Tank (hands down favorite)
    I still like Big Bang Theory (I know there are polar opposite opinions on this one)

    As you can see, I don't have cable so can't comment on any cable shows. Personally, I scroll through the DirectTV guide at work occasionally and think everything on cable looks like a bunch of crap followed by more crap. I'm sure there is a few hidden gems I'm missing though.
