Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” – 4 seasons

The most amazing thing about the Emmy-winning “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” was that the CW stayed with this painfully low-rated show for 4 seasons: but, thank goodness they did. This warm riotously funny musical—total number of 129 songs; that number is correct—looks at a woman attempting to find love while battling debilitating mental illness.

Episode” – 5 seasons

Co-Creator Jeffrey Klarik—who made a little show called “Friends”—gifted the world with this black comedy that takes a sugarless look at the world of Network TV. Two British writers bring their critically acclaimed series to America and quickly come to regret it. Matt LeBlanc won a Golden Globe for playing himself!

Ozark” – 3 Seasons

This excellent Netflix original flew under the radar until the last year’s Emmys where “Ozark” took home statues for Directing (Jason Bateman) and Supporting Actress (Julia Garner). The third season will be available on March 27th. When economic advisor Marty Bryde sees his money-laundering scheme with a Mexican drug cartel go horrifically awry, he’s forced to relocate to the Ozarks. Things just get worse from there.

Cougar Town” – 6 Seasons

The series would spend the entire run regretting their chosen name —adding punny comments about it to the opening credits in the final seasons. It tells the stories of neighbors aka The Cul de Sac crew of Gulf Haven, Florida as they hilariously navigate a slide into middle age while drinking wine by the barrel.

Ugly Betty” – 5 seasons

Though “Ugly Betty” was last on television 10 years ago, the adventures and meanderings of an unglamorous girl, America Ferrera, working at a fashion magazine can still hold your interest and keep you smiling and laughing. And Vanessa Williams as the conniving creative director Wilhelmina Slater is classic television at its best.
