I tend to like light-hearted, funny cartoons without all the drama, and where the problem is resolved (usually with some sudden occurance/realization) at the end of the episode and that teach small lessons, however obvious we think the lessons may be (but are not always so). I dislike shows that are heavy in mature content, crude humor, or basically any "reality" TV. There are a few exceptions though.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (funny, and the characters really work! there's a lot of good stuff behind the superficially "girly" initial impressions)
Phineas and Ferb
Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (which I consulted for middle-school advice, haha)
Tom and Jerry
Scooby-Doo
Loony Toons
Everybody Hates Chris (this one's an oddball compared to the rest, but it's just too funny)
Avatar: The Last Airbender (the concept is great and draws you into the story. there's a /lot/ of drama, but also a lot of good comedy relief to balance it out.)
Legend of Korra (see above)
Drake and Josh


And some outdated ones I still like
Teen Titans (the older one that aired on boomerang)
The Power Puff Girls
Codename Kids Next Door
Hamtaro

Doctor Who !!
Good Eats (best cooking show on either network, Cooking Channel or Food Network)
Supernatural
the early Spongebobs
Hannibal (It's actually really good, besides the mild gore)
This show on Hulu called The Booth at the End
House
Bones (this is one of my favourite shows and I know they jumped the shark with B&B and I know the science isn't accurate)
Firefly
Fringe (Walter is awesome)
Others that I can't remember
Perfection. That’s what it’s about. It’s those moments. When you can feel the perfection of creation. The beauty of physics, you know, the wonder of mathematics. The elation of action and reaction, and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to.

I've watched a lot of tv this year... Late at night when insomnia takes over. Like
Dr who both the new and old doctor who
sherlock
merlin
robin hood
top gear
arrow
elementary
alpha
continuum
how it's made
Monk
and more..

I've watched all episodes of each of those series over the past 3 months :/. A serious amount of tv time... But I was able to multitask and do Olympiad at the same time ;).

Okay, then, I guess I'll participate (and then go to bed - it is, after all, 4:15 AM...):

- Archer (EXCELLENT show, though definitely R-rated)
- Arrested Development (see above, though not as R-rated as Archer)
- Community (another excellent show)
- Dilbert (was unaware that it was a show until recently; also quite funny)
- Sherlock (brilliant)
- Top Gear (also brilliant - gotta love the British)

Last summer, I blew through all seven (at the time) seasons of How I Met Your Mother in two weeks... :? My to-watch list is now all of Arrested Development, all of Archer, The IT Crowd, and whatever else I happen to find on Netflix. Doctor Who and all of Top Gear are last priority due to their having I think 12 and 18 seasons, respectively.
