It was a shitty decade for the auto industry and pager salesmen, but the aughts were remarkably kind to television. The small screen is no longer the ghetto for actors and production values that it once was—we're a couch potato nation, dang it, and we don't have to be ashamed. To celebrate the end of the '00s and the start of the tens (the teens? the tween years?), TONY picked the 50 best shows that made DVR ownership next to godliness. Our not-so-scientific method included casual debate and professions of love for David Simon; our only requirement was that the program made its biggest impact after the turn of the millennium (so calm yourselves, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans).
Participants: Allison Williams, Amy Plitt, David Fear, Ethan LaCroix, Drew Toal, Sharon Steel, Noah Tarnow
