What's the Best New TV Show of 2008?

What's the Best New TV Show of 2008?

As I continue my Best of 2008 coverage today, I wanted to go straight for one of the heavy hitters: the best new TV show of '08. Thanks to the writers' strike, this was kind of an odd year for television, but it also launched some pretty good shows. So tell me — what do you think is the best of 2008's freshman TV class?

I choose True Blood...but it was kind of a tie between that and Lipstick Jungle

I went with Fringe, but I like Privileged as well. I have only seen one episode of True Blood, but I"ll definitely be getting it through Netflix when it comes out on DVD.

Fringe got my vote. I do like the new 90210 though too..

Breaking Bad! I love to see the guy from Malcolm in the middle in an entirely different role - he is so talented! And the show is crazy and amazing...when will the new season start?

I vowed not to get into any new shows this season (trying to trim my TV consumption), but I did end up getting into True Blood. The writing needs tightening, but it's a good show.

depeche, I watched an episode of Worst Week, it was the one where he put all the crystal in the dishwasher, the one where they made HIS parents believe that her parents were very ill? I thought it was cute! But to be honest, it wasn't very memorable. I don't remember what night it's on or much else about it. I think that's why it's not getting recognition. It is definitely a cute show though.

True Blood & Fringe. I was a bit skeptical when I started watching True Blood. I liked it ok at first but by the end of the season I was beyond hooked. Thankfully, I still have Fringe :)

For me, a toss up between Life on Mars and Kath and Kim. I really enjoy both shows.

Ok voted for Lipstick Jungle as I am very very afraid that it will get cancelled. Other shows I really love are Fringe and True Blood.

True Blood, definitely. Ok so I've only seen 2 1/2 episodes (I don't have HBO so I have to watch it through other means), but I love it. The only other show on this list that I watch is 90210, but it's just a guilty pleasure and I only watch it because it's the only thing I would consider watching on Tuesday nights.I'm surprised so many people love Privileged. I heard it got terrible reviews so I didn't bother, but I may check it out when I have time.
