"Just the tip"

4. Wilfred (2007)
Remake is pretty good, especially for a US channel, but the Aussie original much darker.

7. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (1996)
Politicians should learn from this show.

Also John Oliver & Wyatt Cenac kick ass.

9. That '70s Show (1998)


 

I hardly watch any tv that isn't sport or movies, but this selection is essential viewing. The shows are pretty diverse but all evoke emotion, push boundaries and provoke thought.

Essential is pushing it, given this is TV but these are cool shows that fill a gap.
