I prefer the early 2000s, with the exception of the Office, which in my opinion was better than anything the early '00s had to offer.

Supernatural in the late '00s was fun...for the first few seasons. Other than that, I'd choose the former.

I'm not sure, I like both periods for television. The former had Buffy, Dawson, Sabrina, Daria, and Roswell, as well as Degrassi: The Next Generation when it was actually good and they made interesting plots, but the latter had nice shows as well.

Shows I haven't watched, but I want to see are The O.C., Smallville, and 7th Heaven. There are more, but I can't remember what else.

I also really like Veronica Mars, which belongs to both, but it started to suffer during that last season. My mom and my brother watch Supernatural, but I don't pay attention to it. Jared and Jensen really need a shave and a haircut.

2000-2005 most definately! It had the zany game shows and reality shows and there wasn't as big a celebrity obsession yet.

Definitely the former as it was before I knew of Youtube and how online video would make TV no longer the must-see place for audiovisual content and entertainment. Yes, the number of channels had started to grown tremendously, but of course in addition to some popular mid-late '90s shows still on, the concept of reality TV was fresh and not tiresome. It was also the last time that TV was not predominantly HD, similar in a way to 1960-65 TV still being black & white, with a few hints of color such as on NBC.

While I definitely prefer TV from the '80s and '90s, I'd still be keen on watching SOME earlier '00s TV. Even VH1 still played a few videos, TV Land still played classic TV shows, Game Show Network mostly played classics and Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy; cartoons were still mostly 2D, there were 10 daytime soap operas on the air, Nickelodeon, while not as good as the '90s, wasn't all Spongebob all the time (especially before the movie), and you could still record shows via VHS before digital became mandatory in 2009. Finally, the graphics weren't as frequently "Adobey" or "Photoshoppy" in commercials as they've been since around 2006, and there was more variety in products.

@ArcticFox Agreed tl;dr

The internet didn't even make a dent on TV until long after youtube hit the scene.

(insert name of TV show)Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and so on, each 10 minutes max. Watching TV shows online in the '00s was a pain the more I think about it. And don't even get me started on the slow internet.

I Love New York, Flavor of Love With Flava Flav, Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, Jersey Shore (late 2009), America's Best Dance Crew, etc.

I was only 9-12 so I remember this time period more than the early-mid 2000s

Probably 2000-05, still a lot of 90s shows on the air. The only late 00s show I really loved was Lost and a few others.

Also the Disney Channel shows from the early 00s are way better than Hannah Montana and its ilk.

About 2006-2009, TV declined greatly! Many Network(NBC,FOX,ABC) shows had ended, The kids networks had become atrocious 8-P, The writers strike, etc. The only good thing on TV was sports.(Super Bowl 42 and 43 FTW!! :D) I feel Network TV was NEVER the same after the strike!

I don't really think that you can view full programs of TV shows on YouTube back in the 2000s, because you could only upload videos up to 10 minutes.

I think YouTube started to allow videos that are longer than 15 minutes around 2011 and 2012. People were still uploading videos that were 10-15 minutes in 2010.

Shemp, I was also talking about watching retro shows such as family sitcoms on YouTube, just type in the show you want to watch and add the word "full" next to it and something will come up.

Oh, for that, I think they put in some channels that let you pay for movies back then. They don't do that anymore since everybody can upload videos that are longer than 15 minutes.

I think I actually enjoyed TV, no matter if they were from 2000-2005 or 2006-2009. The whole 2000s had great TV shows that were legendary like The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter, the list goes on and on.
