    Top 10 favorite Ongoing TV Shows?

    Surprised there isn't a thread for this. Top 10 favorite Ongoing TV Shows?

    All non-cancelled tv shows. They don't have to be airing on TV right now (Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, etc)

    Just like any show that will have future new episodes. And Arrested Development shouldn't count as of now.

    So 30 Rock, which has no upcoming episodes, should count, but Arrested Development, which has upcoming episode, should not.

    All right.

    1. Childrens Hospital
    2. Breaking Bad
    3. Enlightened
    4. Parks and Recreation
    5. Louie
    6. Mad Men
    7. Homeland
    8. The Venture Bros.
    9. Archer
    10. Bob's Burgers
    11. Girls
    12. New Girl
    13. Happy Endings (#12 and 13 are interchangeable, so I'll add an extra spot)


    From the direction Community is going right now, I'll leave it off my list.

    There are a lot of fantastic shows that didn't make it here.

    And I'm only on the 5th season of 30 Rock, so I'll leave that show off.

    edit: I forgot about Homeland I'll just make the list a top 13 and call it a day.

    Because the final season of 30 Rock just ended in 2013..... And the last Arrested Development episode was in 2006. Once the new episodes come out, it should obviously be allowed here.

    In no real order (and not counting 30 Rock because it is not ongoing by virtue of, uh, being done):

    Archer
    Justified
    Game of Thrones
    Mad Men
    Breaking Bad
    The Americans
    Gravity Falls
    Community (have enjoyed the first two episodes, but there's a direction they seem to be setting up which will irritate me deeply if it pans out)
    Bob's Burgers
    Louie
    r/u: Homeland, New Girl, Happy Endings

    Need to catch up on:
    Girls
    Parks and Rec

    Need to watch at some point:
    Enlightened
    Parenthood

    Game of Thrones
    Girls
    Mad Men
    Breaking Bad
    Justified

    Homeland would be just below those. And I'm sorta ready for Breaking Bad to be over.

    Not one mention of Boardwalk Empire yet.

    Guess I wasn't the only one who stopped watching/caring after the first few episodes...

    I still watch but its tempting me to tune out. I've forgotten who all the characters were, which is my biggest problem with Game of Thrones.

    Seriously, it's one of the best comedies on-air right now. The Christmas episode was absolutely hysterical.

    Scandal
    Revenge (ugh. After last week's episode I am close to tuning out)
    Downton Abbey (finally watched this...and caught up on all 3 seasons in a week)
    Mad Men (but I need to catch up on Season 5)
    Cougar Town
    Elementary
