What Is the Best Cable TV Drama of 2009?

Network television certainly doesn't have the market cornered on great TV shows anymore. In fact, many of prime time's most acclaimed dramas are found outside of your standard channels. Though the seasons may be shorter, it just makes them even sweeter. So which cable TV drama is your favorite?

Don't forget to vote on all of my Best of 2009 polls!

oh my god! Sons of Anarchy and Mad Men! I cant decide, I'm hooked to both shows! My Sundays and Tuesdays are so much better now that I have Jax and Draper in my life! oh and both shows ended thier season with a bang!

Tough choice. I voted for Breaking Bad because those characters have crawled under my skin and I have such a deep love for them. But really - True Blood, Big Love and Mad Men blow me away too.

i loved true blood first season, but this second season sucked! always a cliffhanger, never answering any questions and now randomly pairing sookie with eric? dexter has my vote.

Mad Men was the only one on this list I watched (I used to watch The Tudors but I've long abandoned it), but I decided to watch an episode of Dexter earlier this week and was immediately hooked... I sat down and watched every single episode and I'm already done with season 2! Pleasantly surprised that the show wasn't just a cheap gimmicky ploy for ratings, but that it actually is a good, well-written show!

I only watch Dexter, True Blood and have recently started watching Big Love S3 (haven't seen the earlier seasons). Dexter is best! True Blood is actually pretty bad, it's fun to watch but not that good.

i'm behind on big love and true blood so i can't wait for them to come out on DVD! army wives is a secret guilty pleasure for me, except this season was super boring compared to last. sounds like i should be adding dexter to my netflix queue..i've never seen it!

Sons of Anarchy! It's my co-favorite, along with Glee. Opposite ends of the spectrum, I know.

DEXTER!! I love Dexter. So effing much. True Blood is second, but Dexter wins easily.

Before this recent suck season I would have said Dexter hands-down, but season 4 has been one huge snooze. I love True Blood and WHEN it's good, it's the best, but in terms of overall consistent excellence with zero cheesiness ever, I had to go with Big Love. Mad Men is a very, very close second, but I think Big Love has to work harder to be amazing because it's a much harder concept to pull off with sensitivity and originality.

Breaking bad! It's as underrated as a show with 2 emmys for best lead actor can be.

As much as I love True Blood, season 2 sucked (pun intended) big time. Dexter is good!!!!
