My two favorite TV shows are both Emmy award winners. The first was a comedy introduced in the spring of 2005. It only ran for 6 episodes (that's all NBC initially ordered), but I immensely enjoyed the humor and characters, in particular Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute. Things didn't look too good for the show in the summer of '5, however. Thankfully, NBC ordered a full season of it for the '05-'06 season and I was able to enjoy many more eps of the show. It's now in its 3rd season and won for Best Comedy at the Emmys last fall. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "The Office".

My other favorite show has been on for several years. And I was hooked on it from the start. It premiered on September 5, 2001 (yes, less than a week before you-know-what). It ran for a couple years, but couldn't seem to find an audience. CBS thought it to be a worthwhile show, however, and kept renewing it. It won for Best Reality Show at the Emmys in 2003, 2004, and 2005. There was speculation that it would lose this past fall to "American Idol", but...didn't happen.

won for the 4th consecutive year.

I like it a lot better than "Survivor" (there's less backstabbing and a lot more going on since contestants are traveling all over the world instead of being stuck on a crummy island solving puzzle games). It's just a much more "positive" show. I'm looking forward to seeing the All-Star edition which starts up on February 18th.

We are looking forward to the all stars Amazing Race as well, long time viewers, we even sent in a tape to be on it when we were newlyweds.

It is THE reality show to be on, what an experience.

I can't watch it on Thursday's and my VCR is broken, so I actually buy it on ITunes every week b/c I can't go without it.
