 Crap result, son. House is so far out of this league...and the fact that it doesn't win 10-0 is wrong. Almost as wrong as giving any attention to Grey's Anatomy which is probably the worst television programme of the decade. I rate this Stylus article a D+ because I'm high on vidicon, to-day.

 I agree with the final result. Scrubs is just a better show than the others, although House is a very close second. Grey's...well, it's a soap opera. However, the one thing you really neglected to really hit on from Scrubs is how Turk (Donald Faison) really makes the show. He and John C. McGinley absolutely carry it, which is saying something given the strength of the other characters.

 Having recently discovered Hugh Laurie in DVDs of Blackadder, I've kind of been wanting to start watching House even though the two characters couldn't be any more different. Too bad I can rarely remember to watch anything that I don't already have on DVD anyway. Was surprised to read this article and not find any mention of Sandra Oh, but that was probably for the best.

 I agree with most of the things you've said,especially the "Least Predictable" category and the bit about the voiceover (I just don't get it-all that fuss about Grey's Anatomy)but this whole analysis seems incomplete and flawed when compared to ER.Not only it is the landmark of hospital dramas but it is also one of the best produced tv shows ever.It would have easily won in your Actual Medical Stuff category and came second in Best Asshole Authority Figure(no matter how obnoxius Dr.Romano was he is no match to Dr.Cox,I give you that).I think it's the most underestimated show simply because it has survived numerous changes without significantly loosing it's quality. I still can't forget the episode with an army tenk heading for the hospital and smashing every single car and newsstand in its way as well as Romano and the helicopter incident(first the loss of his arm and finally his death).It was like watching a Bruckheimer movie(in a good way), I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.It has more action and gritty realism then any of the shows above and can sometimes be quite funny(Morris provided most of the laughs in last couple of seasons).I didn't watch the first 5-6 seasons,I became hooked up later on and every newly introduced character brought a dash of fresh air to the show,most recently John Leguizamo.But what keeps the show together is Maura Tierney.When I see Abby Lockhart and her beautifully soothing look I immediately get the feeling that everything is alright,nothing bad is happening in the world.I could watch an entire episode of just her,doing stuff,and I wouldn't be bored.Her presence is so powerful.Anyway,I just wish you had found time to watch a season or two no matter would you have liked it or not (i get the feeling you were not to keen on Grey's Anatomy but you've watched it anyway).

 Scrubs reruns are already in syndication? It's been on how long now? 3, 4 years?
