Esquire Picks the 100 Best Television Shows for Men

posted by Nell Minow

Esquire has come up with a list of the 100 best television programs for men because “Never before have there been so many things to watch quite so enjoyably.”  Comedy comes out on top with #1 (“The Colbert Report”) and #2 (“The Daily Show”) and sitcoms (“Modern Family,” “Seinfeld,” “30 Rock”), along with reality (“Dirty Jobs,” “Whale Wars,” “Mythbusters”) and lots of pretty girls (Maria Menounos on “Extra”) and drama (“Breaking Bad,” “Justified”), and news (PBS’s “NewsHour,” Chris Matthews).  They have classics like “Seinfeld” and forthcoming programs like Lena Dunham’s “Girls” premiering on HBO in April.  And they even include a cooking show, “Barefoot Contessa.”  Plus “Ted Danson” in anything, the opening theme song for “Parks and Recreation,” and “The Godfather,” any time it’s on, in any version.  Some of the choices are obvious: ESPN and some reality show about belching lungfish.  Some…not–“The View?”  And there are some I’ve put on my DVR list.  I had no idea Discovery has a show called “Sunrise Earth” that just shows a sunrise, real time, no music.
