4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer The new season has been a disappointment with the notable exception of the musical episode.
3. Pardon the Interruption By far the most entertaining sports talk show. The Last Word is crippled by Rome's posing and The Best Damn Sports Show Period ain't.
2. Alias I knew it was a spy show with some debt to La Femme Nikita, but I didn't realize it was going to start treading in Raiders of the Lost Ark territory with its storyline about tracking down lost 15th c. technology that may have the power to alter time and extend life. What can I say? I'm hooked. The girl's a hottie too, which helps.
1. Angel Has utterly eclipsed Buffy and is now the best-written show with the most engaging characters.
