  1. Why is Journeyman not on this list? It should be #1!

  2. Color me confused, but, um, why is there still listings for Touchstone Television? They’re ABC Studios now and has been since May 2007. So, it tickles me to see ABC Studios and Touchstone mixed around. Especially when Dirty Sexy Money is on both lists with Touchstone in the Best listing and ABC in the Worst listing.
    And NBC Universal Television Studios is now Universal Media Studios because UMS is less embarrassing to shorthand than NUTS.
