Bonanza joins the Hall of Fame. I quite like the show. Likable lead characters and character driven western stories.

Knight Rider, the original cheese classic of the 1980s was actually put to shame. Now I personally don't agree with that given all that show had (David Hasselhoff, a cool looking-fast moving-talking car, some nice looking lady guest stars) to offer and I certainly don't feel it deserves shame as much as the more recent series does. Anyways the BMO Fame-Shame community has spoken.

Cops joins the TV Hall of Shame. One reality TV show in, sure there's many more to come.

I actually liked Cops when it first came out.  I can't think of an earlier reality program; it was original at the time.  It quickly grew old, though.  I certainly didn't like it enough to try to SAVE it.

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air joins the Hall of Fame. Hey, I thought it was a funny show especially the Carlton character but it took a while for it to get into the Hall of Fame here.

I tried my best to keep the Fresh Prince out, but to no avail.  I thought it was a very average sit com at best, not HOF material by any stretch.  I honestly don't get it's popularity, but that's why we vote.

Baywatch joins the Hall of Shame. Aside from watching women bounce and jiggle in bikinis, there was very little of substance to this series. Plus I never liked Pamela Anderson or her politics.

The X-Files, certainly one of the best, most popular and most enduring shows of the 1990s, joins the Hall of Fame while MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) joins the Hall of Shame. MXC was a re-edit comedy take on a Japanese game show called Takeshi's Castle that aired on SpikeTV. I found it watchable enough for an episode or so but after that, well it was just more of the same old, same old.

Cold Case which ran from 2003 to 2010 joins the TV Hall of Fame. While there are undoubtablely similarities to a previous similar Canadian series entitled Cold Squad which predates Cold Case by five years, I'd argue Cold Case is actually the better show. Cold Case is actually centered around a fictional Philadelphia homicide squad that specializes in cold cases. What makes the show actually appealing to me personally is the story that is unveiled as our lead detectives, practically all of which are fine character actors in their own right, explore this cases given us a wealth of great character performance pieces as the individual stories behind each of these deaths is explained. While there's often a sense of dark and foreboding with many of the stories, especially those involving child murder and serial killers. There's a sense of coldness in many episodes and the color schemes and choice of music often seem to whisk us away to different eras and times depending on the setting involved.

Forensic Files join the TV Hall of Shame. It really isn't such a bad show in its way, a documentary style show that examines how forsenic science is used to solve crimes, mysterious accidents and even illness outbreaks.. it was just up against too stiff competition lately.

The Sopranos was put to Shame as it joins that Hall. It wasn't that I thought it was such a bad show really, just that I liked every other show on the list far more. I know a lot of people were disappointed with the ending of this series.

Mythbusters joins the TV Hall of Fame. I think it's the first reality TV series to gain entry into the Hall if I'm not mistaken. The show, which airs on Discovery, featuring two hosts conducting scientific experiments to prove whether things claimed as factual are in fact factual or are in fact nothing but myths. Personally I watched it a time or two but it wasn't really something I'm enticed to revisit but I can see its appeal and why it has proven popular.
