  1. Experience wins out as the Simpsons triumphs over Suburgatory. Modern Family takes down the Gleeks. Our upset specials for this round? Happy Endings defeats the sometimes aimless HIMYM, and Up All Night puts the now-pointless Office through the paper shredder.

  2. -Simpsons has the longevity over Suburgatory. That show might not even make it to 3 seasons.
    -Both are emmy heavies the past few years, but i give it to Glee for having more momentum.
    -Although HIMYM has the seasons, Happy Endings is a new, albiet insane and over the top wacky, approach to the “friends” formula that will give it the win.
    -The Office, for no other reason than Will Arnet is cursed. Unrightfully so as he is hilarious! But its true.

  3. – Suburgatory over the Simpsons. The Simpsons hasn’t been a great show for years and is coasting on reputation alone. I know almost nothing about Suburgatory, but Simpsons just doesn’t deserve a win.
    – Modern Family over Glee. Take away the karaoke gimmick, and (even with Jane Lynch) Glee is just an average show.
    – HIMYM over Happy Endings. It may not be as strong as it was a couple years ago, but it still has some classicly funny and/or tender moments. It’s why we all still watch it.
    – Up All Night over The Office. Haven’t watched Up All Night, but I really can’t understand why The Office is even still on the air after Carell left.

  4. Suburgatory
    Modern Family
    Happy Endings
    Up All Night- never liked the Office at all!
