AFI's Best TV For 2009: 'Glee,' 'True Blood,' 'Mad Men' On The List
Sure, the American Film Institute honors the best films of the past year--their Top 10 list this year includes box office darlings Up and The Hangover and critical faves like Precious and The Hurt Locker--but they also honor the best television of the past year, and their list this year has some interesting picks.

The AFI will honor the following ten shows in a luncheon on January 15 in Los Angeles:

Glee is available on Amazon Prime.


The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Big Love (HBO)
Friday Night Lights (DirecTV/NBC)
Glee (Fox)
Mad Men (AMC)
Modern Family (ABC)
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency (HBO)
Nurse Jackie (Showtime)
Party Down (Starz)
True Blood (HBO)

Personally, I did not expect Glee or The Big Bang Theory on this list, but hey, if it encourages them to keep up with the good work (and yes, they've been doing good work lately), so be it.
