When Grey's Anatomy hit the airwaves in March of 2005, many pooh-poohed the series as just one more in a long line of mediocre medical dramas.

Narrated by surgical intern Meredith Grey, the show tells the story of the young doctor and her fellow residents as they struggle to come into their own as doctors while maintaining their identities outside of the hospital. Rather than relying on emergency-room stunts and mysterious ailments as a source of drama, Grey's Anatomy gives a depth to its characters that is rarely found in the genre.

CSI is one of television's favorite franchises, and this spin-off is a major hit in its own right. The hot locales and the tense situations keep ratings up week after week. In season three, the sensuous Miami skyline looms over the team like a glitzy foreboding blanket.
Former NYPD Blue man David Caruso got his second chance at TV stardom and has stuck with it. A wise choice. Caruso plays Horatio Caine, a tough-as-nails forensics investigator. He leads a team of forensic analysts and solves crimes by investigating the smallest details, down to the DNA.

The Andy Griffith Show is definitely a TV classic. It ran from 1960 to 1968, producing 249 episodes.
The main character, Andy (Andy Griffith), was a widowed father of a polite little boy named Opie (Ron Howard) and is a sheriff, who works with nervous and very suspecting Barney Fife (Don Knotts). They all live in the nice southern town of Mayberry. But, Mayberry can get a little dangerous when the town drunk, Otis Campbell (Hal Smith), is on the loose. Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) is Barney's sweetheart, although Andy had to help him describe his feelings to her. Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) is the very loving and caring but stern housekeeper for Andy and Opie. Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) is a bone-headed, thoughtless, but humorous character. He is a gas attendant. Goober Pyle (George Lindsey) is Gomer Pyle's cousin. They are very alike, you could say, and arrive in Mayberry when Gomer decides to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. The show had two spin-offs: Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and Mayberry R.F.D.
