Bi-Monthly Power Rankings- 20 Through 11
Although it has been three months since the last installment of The Quiet Pool Perspective Power Rankings, they will keep the Bi-Monthly moniker, because I am simply shifting everything back one month. August, October, December, February, April, and June works better anyway. There's that, and there's the fact that I was way too busy moving and starting a new job to post anything at the start of July. I still don't have time to say a lot, but I do have some new rankings for y'all so take a look...
Rank. Show (Last Time, Highest Ranking) green=moving up, red=moving down
20. Cougar Town (-, -) Unknown on TBS
Jules and crew have really come into their own after a dreadful start to the series. This show is worth it for the Bobby/Andy bromance alone.
19. Survivor (17, 14) Wednesdays on CBS
It's still the most watchable and interesting reality competition out there. If they could just find more successful ways of tweaking it every season.
18. Shameless (16, 16) Sundays on Showtime
I continue to be surprised at how much I enjoy Shameless given how many characters I absolutely detest on screen.
17. Sherlock (-, -) Sundays on PBS
If this series kept its quality while changing the episode style to 12 eps of an hour, it would be one of my favorites on television.
16. 30 Rock (14, 2) Thursdays on NBC
Wait really? 30 Rock is still this high? It hasn't had a bad season yet, which means it's getting by on decent years with at least some laughs in every episode.
15. Parenthood (15, 13) Tuesdays on NBC
There probably isn't much time left in Parenthood's lifetime, so we better enjoy it while we have it. Maybe if they got rid of Jabbar more people would tune in.
14. Boardwalk Empire (13, 12) Sundays on HBO
A fantastic finale leaves me excited for the story to be told in season three. The issue is that they killed off one of the most intriguing characters.
13. Mad Men (12, 3) Sundays on AMC
The most recent season wasn't bad at all, but it kept feeling like nothing was happening. Slowly but surely, things happened, but it didn't feel that way while watching.
12. Wilfred (19, 12) Thursdays on FX
Easily the best comedy of the summer, Wilfred stepped up in a big way this second season. They continue to come up with hilarious situation after hilarious situation.
11. The Vampire Diaries (11, 11) Thursdays on The CW
Unfortunately it seems my favorite version of Klaus won't be with us in the near future, which has me worried. On the other hand, there's always Damon Salvatore.
