    Inspired by PopeDirkBenedict's favorite songs thread. What's your favorite current show on each network? And your favorite cancelled/completed show on each network? You can use cable networks as well as the big four.

    I'll, duh, start:

    ABC
    Current favorite: Can I vote for Scrubs before it even airs on ABC? No. No I cannot. So it's Desperate Housewives (the only show I remotely watch on ABC)
    Past favorite: Who's The Boss (I have a feeling I'm forgetting something else, and no Mikey, it is not Full House)

    CBS
    Current favorite: the only CBS show I've seen in the past two years (at least) is one episode of How I Met Your Mother. So I guess that wins.
    Past favorite: Simon & Simon

    NBC
    Current favorite: My Name Is Earl
    Past favorite: Freaks and Geeks (by a nose over Scrubs)

    FOX
    Current favorite: The Simpsons
    Past favorite: Beverly Hills 90210 (duh)

    WB/CW/UPN
    Current favorite: One Tree Hill (shut up!)
    Past favorite: Dawson's Creek (shut up!)

    ESPN
    Current favorite: Live baseball that does not feature Joe Morgan
    Past favorite: The Sports Reporters

    HBO
    Current favorite: n/a
    Past favorite: The Sopranos

    MTV
    Current favorite: any snuff film featuring any of their reality "stars"
    Past favorite: Top 20 Video Countdown

    Seriously? Desperate Housewives? Did you honestly think it was a good idea to admit watching it? Why don't you start a thread called "My Wife Keeps My Balls In Her Purse"? For shame, dickhead. For shame. :) :) :)

    ABC
    Current favorite: N/A -- I don't watch much new television, aside from Scrubs.
    Past favorite: Boy Meets World, BYH. Boy Meets World. There was no show better applicable for nearly every life situation for me growing up. Saved By The Bell was close, but it was no Boy Meets World.

    CBS
    Current favorite: How I Met Your Mother. I'm in BYH's boat. I saw a couple episodes about a year ago, and I really liked it. I'll probably buy the DVDs in about five years when no one likes it anymore.
    Past favorite: Everybody Loves Raymond. I watch it for the kids simply to spite the show's original opening credits.

    NBC
    Current favorite: If Scrubs doesn't count, I've got no idea. I don't even know what else is on its schedule.
    Past favorite: Seinfeld, easily. Saved By The Bell is a close second, followed by Friends and California Dreams. You know, the classics.

    FOX
    Current favorite: The Simpsons
    Past favorite: Married ... With Children. Dude, he threw for four touchdowns ... in one game. Polk High rules.

    WB/CW/UPN
    Current favorite: No clue.
    Past favorite: Unhappily Ever After. And it's not even all because of Nikki Cox, though most of it was.

    ESPN
    Current favorite: Baseball Tonight and Around The Horn.
    Past favorite: The Sports Reporters

    HBO
    Current favorite: I guess Curb Your Enthusiasm. But I've only seen a few episodes.
    Past favorite: Arliss.

    MTV
    Current favorite: Nothing.
    Past favorite: Singled Out. Hello, Chris.
