Favorite TV Shows: January, 2011 Edition

Back in the days of yore (and by yore, I mean high school) I used to list my favorite TV shows (in order, natch) in my diary.  I'd do an entry for this every so often -- sometimes within a matter of weeks, sometimes months.  Certain shows held their places firmly over time, some new ones got added, and others were discarded and forgotten.  It's funny to read those entries now and see what shows I was watching as a teenager.  Annnnd also a little embarrassing.  But you know what?  I haven't made one of those lists in a long, long time.  So darnit, I'm going to do one.  Are you ready?
