Best New Show of 2009

What Is the Best New Show of 2009?

Yesterday we tackled the best up-and-comer of this year and several new (but already beloved) TV characters, but what about your favorite Freshman show? We've already seen a few Fall series take off like gangbusters (Glee, anyone?) but since this is for '09, I'm including ones that premiered earlier in the year, too. Take a look at the list and then weigh in!

It was so hard to pick btween Glee and Vampire Diaries but I ultimately went with Glee. I also like Castle but havent had time to watch it.

Castle from the list. Like Anonymous said, Dollhouse is the best in my opinion.

I went with Glee because I am so sad when a week goes by and it's not on. However, I also like Modern Family and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy The Vampire Diaries.

I don't know. It's a tie with Glee, Vampire Diaries, and Flash Forward.

GLEE!! I accidentally caught Castle one day, and couldn't believe how terrible the acting is! Awful, awful stuff.

This has been a really great year for new shows and I watch almost all of the ones you listed. I went w/ Glee though b/c it is so original. My second choice would probably be Modern Family.

Modern Family! It was hard choosing between it and Glee, but I really think it's the best show on tv right now.

Castle won this for me, hands down. I adore that show and Nathan Fillion. But I also love Modern Family, Cougar Town, Community, FlashForward and Parks & Recreation. So much good TV!

Modern Family got my vote, but Glee and Community are great. And P & R is just simply amazing this year.

Well I wouldn't exactly say Castle's a new show, it's in its 2nd season, but I guess it was a mid-season replacement, right? I love it. And Cougar Town. And Vampire Diaries and Glee and Community. There are so many good shows this season I could just go on.
