This is a tough decision.  Of shows in the past, I'd say my all-time favorites are seasons 3-8 of The Simpsons, as that show used to make me giddy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer until season 5 when it started taking itself way too seriously, Freaks and Geeks, Spaced, and Arrested Development all vie for a spot.

Shows currently on the air?  The Wire and Deadwood (still has 2 2-hour movies left, so it's not technically over yet) are are both brilliant.  South Park and The Office are both hillarious, and Heroes, House, and Lost keep me entertained.

Well I don't have a TV so I don't see much. With that in mind, my current favourite would be Battlestar Galactica. For years I was literally 'Battlestar remake, hahaha, that's a joke right?' then about a month before the 3rd season started I had a bung leg and took some time off work and saw the show sitting on the server. "hmmm let's take a look" and Wow, I was impressed watched it all in about 2 days.

I watch Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert whenever they show up on the server too  ;)

Dang, they should get those 2 in for a rifftrax!

Also enjoying the new Dr Who revival. Torchwood, not so much, it's missing something.

Babylon 5, it's so awesome to see it get a new chance, can't wait for The Lost Tales to go on sale.

That would cover a good chunk of the non mst3k stuff.

Colbert Report is just stellar.

Chef! was a great show.... The Office (UK).... The Guardian.... Xfiles.... Little Britain.... So many.....

But Twin Peaks beats them all...

Ow, and Clerks: The animated series. 6 episodes of joy.

I assume MST3K is a given?  ;)

Doctor Who, Star Trek (esp. DS9), Family Guy, Night Gallery, Frasier, Twilight Zone, Twin Peaks, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Masters of Horror, Black Adder, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (esp. the last few seasons), Black Books, Firefly, Futurama, The X-Files...too damn many series.

Actually, none of those are currently on the air. Weird.

   Most of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line up (not the Anime part), Family Guy, American Dad, The Simpsons (when we remember to catch it anymore), X-Files, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Daily Show, The Colbert Report (how can we not?), and The Tick. Also, absolutely any Lewis Black or Dane Cook special on Comedy Central.


   Shows I love but am lucky to catch (full time jobs suck): the new Dr.Who and the new Battlestar Galactica.

   Show we fully intended to get into but kept forgetting it was on: Blade. Now we're lost.

I'm a big toonhead and there have been many great TV shows and cartoons over the years. Here's the currently-airing (Or soon to be currently airing once more) shows I dig. :^)

The Simpsons (Even not-as-good-As-it-was Simpsons is better than 90% of the garbage out there.)
Futurama (Eagerly awaiting its return in 2008!)
Family Guy (Non-Sequitery Goodness!)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force (I can't be the only Adult Swim fan in these parts! :^))
12 Oz. Mouse (It's the misunderstood cartoon son of Lost and Twin Peaks. :^))
Frisky Dingo (More AS fun. It takes the Superhero Comedy genre in a completely new direction.)
Metalocalypse (I could just list every Adult Swim show ever, but the four I've mentioned are the stand-out best. :^))
And, maybe my only live-action choices:
Colbert Report (Gotta go with the masses. Colbert is fun to watch. :^))
Daily Show (Not as good as the Colbert Report, but it keeps me more informed than I'd care to be otherwise. :^))

Ooh! X-Play. The last Video-Game related thing on G4. :^) Their reviews are almost always waaay off, but I like it for the comedy. It's probably the closest union to MST3K-style riffing and video games we'll ever get (Outside of the Playstation underground footage. :^))
