Dead Like Me - Snarky and intelligent. I loved this show dearly.
Friends - No the best humor, but I looked forward to each new episode.
Knight Rider - This is most definitely a fond memory from my youth. Kit was awesome!
Black Mirror - Bleak, but clever and it holds no punches.
The Good Place - Max already described this one.

But my favorite is probably
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - I liked the premise of this show(Vampires might just be my favorite staple horror creature, tbh). I not only really liked the humor, but I was really in awe of the fact that this show, aimed at a teen demographic, had the guts to tackle some very serious issues and problems. Topics such as homosexuality or how to deal with the disease and death of a parent.

@izzythepush,
najmelliw mentioned Dead Like Me. What an unusual premise for show, but it worked and it worked well. I liked it.

I watched the last several incarnations of Doctor Who. What a great, intelligent show! Father Ted. Drink! Sex! Girls! Wonderful!

Television in its infancy. I liked Kukla, Fran, and Ollie better than Howdy Doody. I was an Oliver Dragon fan.

@roger,
I watched Mickey Mouse Club because I was in love with Annette's face.

You Philistine!

You didn't love Moochie and Annette (In very different ways)?

@edgarblythe,
Yeah, I think we all had a crush on Annette Funicello. I liked her better in the Mickey Mouse Club than those dumb beach movies she made.

@coluber2001,
I didn't watch the beach movies. Anyway, I had outgrown my infatuation with her by then.

I did see "Ride the Wild Surf". It had some really good, what do you call it, cinematography.

I almost forgot about Prime Suspect with Helen Mirren. She's the best.

@coluber2001,
If you like Father Ted you may like The IT Crowd and Black Books, they've got the same writers.

@izzythepush,
I seen the black book shows. Insanely funny, at least some of them.
The IT Crowd. I've watched that sporadically, I didn't watch it from the beginning. I felt like I was missing something.

@coluber2001,
Graham Lineham also wrote a lot of Big Train. It's the sketch show that gave Simon Pegg his big break.

The US version of Prime Suspect with Maria Bello was excellent albeit short lived .
