Wow, I have seen at least one episode of about 40 of these, and probably watch about 25 regularly.

You've never seen the West Wing!?!? I love it!!!

I was actually quite relieved that I hadn't seen everything on that list - I am not quite the couch potato I was scared I might be!! ;-)

Amazingly enough, with all the TV I watch I have not seen a lot of these shows...must be because they are not reality...LOL

Sean and I looked at this list together and his comment was 'wow, they must have some major geeks putting that list together' (and he's seen about 95% of the shows on the list at least once.

Do you even watch TV? Cause man I would probably bold the entire list. I will copy and paste and do this on my blog tomorrow. But I swear I think almost all will be bolded. I really, really like my TV.
