  1. 30 Rock... is pretty darn funny, a bitterly merry comic jihad against corporate stupidity and mendaciousness.
  2. Intense and fascinating.
  3. Mad Men is a captivating experience.
  4. It's the lack of moral clarity that makes Damages so spellbinding. Every character wears multiple masks; every action is cloaked in ambiguity and, often, outright duplicity.
  5. The Company is a gripping requiem for the Cold War and the men who fought it.
  6. In Californication, [Duchovny] gets to take full advantage of his low-key comic approach, and the result is irresistible. The rest of the cast matches him riff for riff, especially British actress Natascha McElhone as the disenchanted Karen and young Madeleine Martin as their 12-year-old daughter Becca.
  7. The engaging, honest commentary is just what a DVD set should provide, and once again The Office extras don't disappoint.
  8. You just can't get through two minutes of Back to You without a belly laugh.
  9. Welcome to the tawdry, tantalizing and altogether terrific world of Gossip Girl.
  10. McKidd and castmates Gretchen Egolf as his wife Katie; Reed Diamond as his brother Jack, a cop who used to date Katie; and Moon Bloodgood as his spectral fiance, Livia, play this with just the right mix of credulity and dry wit.
  11. Schwartz's good eye for characters and cutting sense of humor--makes Chuck a thoroughly enjoyable romp.
  12. Reaper is a hilariously fractured commentary on Gen Y.
  13. Half the fun in this outlandishly funny sitcom is that Penny is so spacey that she doesn't appear to recognize what hard-core nerds Leonard and Sheldon really are--even the presence in their bathroom of Luke Skywalker No-More-Tears Shampoo doesn't tip her off.
  14. The show's intricate plotting and finely rendered characters will engage your brain, but there's plenty of below-the-shoulders action, too.
  15. Intelligent and entertaining reimaginations of stupefyingly bad pieces of 1970s sci-fi hackwork.
  16. The excellent cast keeps drawing you back--especially Donald Sutherland as family patriarch Tripp Darling, whose evil glint makes even as benign a phrase as ''good morning'' sound like ''I'm going to put an ice pick through your eye.'' Even better is Krause's portrayal of Nick, layers of exasperation upon fascination upon temptation.
  17. This peculiar comedy-drama has some cockeyed wrinkles that make it interesting.
  18. Big Shots matches affecting characters with genuinely funny stories and dialogue.
  19. Innovative, daring and--most importantly--funny, Aliens in America is a fresh take on an old problem, the loneliness of being different.
  20. It's funny and smart, with affably quirky characters who aren't cut from cardboard.
  21. Samantha Who? is not only a sitcom but a pungently funny one about self-discovery, reinvention and the possibility that beauty may be only skin-deep, but bitch goes right down to the bone.
  22. It's hard to say which is more unlikely: That a corporate legal fang could be God's prophet; or that the Almighty would spread His word through visions of George Michael; or these matters could be blended into a daffily funny and affecting television show.
  23. This tale of a lonely cop left behind by everyone--partners, friends, lovers, even the criminals he pursues--has a piercing melancholy that elevates it way above its fantasy trappings.
  24. No television series has been built around a less likable character, or rendered itself so strangely, compulsively watchable as a result.
  25. This unsettling documentary series on the cable WE network, which follows a dozen Kansas City girls through four years in their suburban high school, suggests we've come a long, hard way from "Grease."
  26. Ellis has used Adams' works to create a wondrously full and nuanced portrait of the man, which is brought fully to life by Paul Giamatti.
  27. A raucous, raunchy and utterly loving account of life at the bottom of the military food chain.
  28. Sons of Anarchy is bloody, disturbing and maniacally addictive.
  29. True Blood is an unlikely but irresistible mixture of pungent political satire, observant pop sociology and lurid drive-in thrills.
  30. Mixing paranoia, bleak humor and post-9/11 exhaustion in a potent story-telling brew, it's one of the new television season's most promising dramas.
