30 Rock  
You will finally be able to use the phrases “Greenzo” and “Hill-People Milk” and appreciate the significance of “Sandwich Day”, “MILF Island” and “Leap Day Williams” when you start to watch 30 Rock. The show was ranked by Newsweek as “The Best Comedy on TV in the Past Decade” in 2009 for a good reason, as it is filled with smart and creatively written humor. There are also a slew of celebrity guests who pop up onto the show, like Jerry Seinfeld, John McEnroe and Matt Damon, as well as two actors who star in shows that are featured on this very list.
