From a personal point of view, I think Jim Parsons (TBBT) should be higher on the list ;) That is one hell of a character and a performance! Makes my life sweeter indeed!(Salutations from Portugal!)

Cable TV, but you have to include USA, Showtime, and TNT in there as well as HBO & FX6. Chuck's early return/additional episodes(its about time NBC backs its actual good shows)5. Fox agreeing to air the remaining episodes of Dollhouse so Whedon can finish it right4. Smallville returning to its glory days with a great season 93.

1. Glee - I know it's going on a 4-months hiatus but I'm still thankful there's a show like it on TV.2. Jim Parsons, definitely.3. Jon & Kate Plus 8 ending, HALLELUJAH! Hopefully they'd just disappear into obscurity, I'd be truly thankful for that.4. The axing of Ashlee Simpsons... hopefully she won't appear in any other show.5. Gossip Girl is slowly returning to their former glory, the first few eps of season 3 were disappointing but I've seen improvement.6. Psych and Burn Notice being renewed. And on that note, I'm thankful for USA Network ;p7. Joel McHale and the rest of the Community gang.8. Oh yes, NBC's faith in Chuck and FNL - two of the best shows on TV today.9. The Office wedding, I can't seem to stop watching it again and again.10. Alexander Skarsgard and Ian Somerhalder. Without them, vampire boys will be wimpy, whiny and pathetic ;p
Happy thanksgiving, Sidereel!

1. Glee + Jane Lynch, phenomenal original show.....and just hilarious2. Jim Parsons, for sure....but having a penis i also have to give props to Kaley Cuoco for making it remotely sexy3.Joel McHale in general, between the Soup and Community he's awesome4. Never bothered to watch either, but glad Ashlee Simpson is back to being careerless and Jon & Kate are done5. The League!!!!! Incredible new sitcom, definitely needs to get checked out by more people i highly suggest it.6. Showtime & HBO.....thank you for producing consistently incredible programming.7. Tina Fey....she's just a delight8. Smallville.....giving it a good run and finally producing some solid new episodes.9. Sunday Monday Wednesday10.

I totally agree with Havahavah, Jim Parsons should the first one on the list. I watch the series only because of him. Jane Lynch on Glee IS fantastic.

Jim Parsons higher on the list definitely, and Jane Lynch as well. Number one and two, preferably.
And ABC's Wednesday comedies? What? Make that NBC's Thursday comedies!!

I'm pretty much in agreement. Except for #4, I haven't watched past the second episode of Melrose Place so I don't really care. So I'll switch 4 out with "Smallville has been awesome this season".
