Subject: TV shows of the 2000s

Written By: 2000s Nostalgiaist on 11/19/15 at 1:22 pm

Hi there guys. In England we got a lot of trashy TV from the states and some good shows as ell. I want to remember the TV shows that I have otherwise long forgotten about.

The bad:

The Simple Life (the one with Paris Hilton)

Beauty and the Geek

Ugly Betty

The good:

Smallville

Supernatural

My Name is Earl

Can anyone think of any others? I often wonder what happened to these shows, it was like yesterday that they were current and then just disappeared, now I look back I see it is for instance nearly 7 years ago that My Name is Earl finished (in 2009) and others.

Oh yes. I started watching that one after GSN picked up the reruns.

Speaking of GSN, that channel had several original game shows during the 2000 decade...

The good:

Lingo
Whammy (a "Press Your Luck" revival)


The bad:

Cram

Emeril Live



I loved watching Emeril Lagasse prepare all those meals. He made his show fun with his terminology: "Kick it up a notch" and "BAM!" were two staple phrases of his.

BAMMM!!! I always danced to the Emeril Live theme song when I was little. I was hoping I wasn't the only one on here who loved watching Food Network throughout the 2000's. My mom was into it most of the time, that's how I was introduced to shows like Emeril Live, Iron Chief, Good Eats, or $40 a Day.

LOL I watched The Simple Life. I don't know man, the show was so bad it was good. Seeing the Hiltons being semi-punished was somewhat satisfying. ;D I hated Beauty and the Geek though, that was a terrible premise for a show. In terms of reality TV, I was addicted to Big Brother, Wife Swap/House Swap, and nanny shows like Supernanny.

As for Smallville, I could never get into the show. The premise was really word. I remember it was some prettyboy with magical powers who lived in the most boring town ever? I believe the show had some sort of revival a few years ago, because a lot of my friends started talking about it again.

I was addicted to medical dramas such as Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs and Becker.

Oh yes, Emeril even had a live band that performed his theme music right on stage.

I hadn't even heard of Emeril Lagasse himself until he appeared on the celebrity edition of Who Wants To Be Millionaire in May 2000. Later that year is when I first watched the Food Network.

The food network logo we still see today the network has been using regularly since 2003, besides the little font update that was made in 2013. I still remember the old Food Network logo the channel used back in 2001 & 2002. Food Network has changed a lot from what I've noticed, it seems to have a lot more reality shows and contests now.

The kinda stuff that doesn't generally interest me. All the "cooking" type shows have moved to the Cooking Channel, which is actually a spinoff channel of the Food Network.

Oh, and Emeril's live band was led by Doc Gibbs; Emeril would acknowledge him after coming on stage at the beginning of each Emeril Live episode.

Now they are coming thick and fast! I have never actually watched any of this but I have seen them when flicking through the channels when the information comes up on what is being shown at that particular time of day. Funny a lot of those shows I remember as being new only a few years ago. There are so many of them and they are all so similar I end up only being able to recall a handful.

But yeah I miss seeing the signs of that era. Like when I was flicking through the digital TV channels and seeing that they were up I knew for sure I was living between 2006-2010. Reruns just aren't the same.

Aren't you familiar with the Superman story lol? Or are you joking? ??? Anyway Clark's teenage life in Smallville was pretty much how I wished my teenage years were. Like with good friends, a girlfriend, exciting things going on to provide memories to look back on; that sort of stuff that I never had. Minus the super powers of course. The mid-late seasons of that show covered the mid-late 2000s which were also my teenage years so it was aired pretty much in parallel to my own boring and lonely teenage years. Anyway, oh yeah, wife swap, house swap and Super Nanny. Looks like they imported everything from over there.

In the early 2000s there was a drama show on CBS called That's Life, about a 30-something woman who breaks off her engagement and goes back to school to earn a degree. It had an interesting premise and storylines, but the show only lasted 2 seasons.

My early 2000s favourite is Popular. Sad it got cancelled after two seasons. The ending was extremely strange. Of course I can't forget Malcolm In The Middle either.

Other teen dramas in the mid-2000s that I liked were 8 Simple Rules. For some reason it feels more early 2000s to me. Great show nonetheless.

8 Simple Rules ran from 2002-2005 so maybe the first few seasons feel pretty early 00s to you. In late 2003, John Ritter (who played Paul Hennessy) died from an aortic dissection which caused a bit of a shift in the show. It's a really good show, I like it! Malcolm in the Middle is one of my favorite 00s shows of all time.

Oh yeah, I remember that! I never knew he died in real life, I thought it was a just a show thing. It was so abrupt, it all makes sense now.  :\'( The show got super depressing for the few episodes after that.

Yep! He died right as production for the next season began so they did the whole "he did buying milk" thing to explain it. The tone changed a lot after his dead but I still liked the show to the end. The interactions between Rory and Jim were the funniest! ;D

I watched The King of Queens and Curb Your Enthusiasm on and off but I watched Just Shoot Me! all the way through. David Spade is a funny guy!

Yeah, I was thinking "that's such a lame way to kill him off". Show was still good after that, but it was always missing the dad. Imo I like the first two seasons more because of that, but it was still a great show throughout.

It's one of my favourite sitcoms  :D David Spade was always on TV in the first half of the 2000s lol. Just Shoot Me! Reruns, 8 Simple Rules and then his reality show which was actually decent.

I agree. Buying milk? They could of made it a little bit more believable. I'm glad they still kept it funny even though the first season is the best. Rory, Jim and CJ kept the show going! :D

Yes, after John Ritter suddenly passed away, the writers did sort of a "Real life writes the plot" thing; they incorporated his passing into the show. In fact, he had been preparing to film an episode of the show just before he passed on. :\'(

Yeah, it sucked when he died! He was really good for the show but I'm glad they were able to keep it good throughout the rest of it's run. Not many shows can do that after losing an important character.

Rory was my favourite!  8) I liked how strict the dad was though, that's what made a lot of the show hillarious. Him chasing out boyfriends and stuff LOL

I was talking about Showbiz with David Spade (or something like that). It was basically a funny version of celebrity news shows (of which, I'm ashamed to say, I watched a lot of). Does he have a new show?  :o Damn, some of these early 2000s are making a comeback. There was the Whose Line Is It Anyway comeback in 2013 too.

Yeah, that was pretty funny! Jim was funny too because he was a crazy old man and of course, David Spade the was slacker. 8) David Spade really does represent the early 00s, doesn't he? Him and Tony Hawk need to duke it out.

Oh! Now I know what you're talking about! I don't think I've seen that show but I might check it out. Yep! It's called Fameless. It's a joke show which I assume is sorta like Ashton Kutcher's Prank'd (but probably a million times better). They're probably gonna mess up the early 00s next... :-\\

I think if I remember correctly they did say car accident. But I'm not 100% sure. It could have just been my assumption.


All I remember is that they said he was out buying milk and suddenly collapsed and died at the store.

Yep yep yep! I remember Life With Derek, it was a pretty good show, but I barely remember seeing episodes on Disney Channel. It was a syndicated show from Canada but it wasn't a Disney Channel original though, it was just there on the channel. I only remember glimpses of the first two seasons.

Grounded for life was a pretty good show.


Also liked Life with Derek.

I never watched this show, but I made fun of my cousin for watching it.


One early-to-mid '00s show I really liked back in the day that you don't really hear much about anymore is Grounded for Life.

I used to watch it all the time on Fox, and then later when they added reruns on ABC Family. Does anybody else remember this show?


Name sounds super familiar, but pictures of it aren't ringing any bells.  :(

Is it good? He was 15 years old and watched terrible tween sitcoms on Family all day.

Okay you're probably right. I don't know why I thought it was a car accident, maybe because they didn't explain it well and that's just what I assumed.

Not the greatest show in the world. But it's a pretty decent show with a rating of 7.6/10 on IMDB. I liked watching it when it aired on Disney Channel.

I loved Life With Derek. But Radio Free Roscoe was by far one of my favourites. I don't know if Americans had that show.

Yeah, I looked it up and it just says "he collapsed while buying milk" like I remember. A car accident would of been a much better way to tell the story and I wish they would of went with it.

Zelek says it's super mid-late 00s and I would not like it. Does it contain a bunch of faux-Emo and MySpace references?

Actually no surprisingly. Characters don't mention or reference social media. And I don't think I've seen any faux-Emo references.

Oh, ok! His haircut, however, is super real 00s. If this was an early 00s show, he'd probably look like Reese.

I don't remember if they had emo references but Derek's friend looked like a stoner.

We did have "Life With Derek", it came on our Disney Channel. I remember when the show first came out too, since throughout 2005 there were promos for it. I remember it being a great show but I barely remember the details that happened on the episodes on a weekly basis. I mainly remember original Disney Channel sitcoms like That's So Raven, Phil of the Future, or Suite Life of Zack & Cody a lot better in detail than the other show. There was another Canadian show that aired on our Disney Channel called "Naturally Sadie" too, but that was boring as hell IMO. I couldn't sit through an episode of that.

I remember Naturally Sadie and I agree that was a very boring show.

I remember it too, but I myself never actually watched it. In fact, it was around that time (2005) when I started watching sitcoms on that channel.

As do I. Raven and Zack/Cody had some interesting storylines and episode plots.

I wish I watched more of That's So Raven. I watched a few episodes and it was hillarious, but there were other shows that I liked airing at the same time. Zach and Cody is good too from the few episodes I've watched. London is hillarious  ;D

Oh yeah, I remember that! I never knew he died in real life, I thought it was a just a show thing. It was so abrupt, it all makes sense now.  :\'( The show got super depressing for the few episodes after that.

Did you watch Curb Your Enthusiasm, Just Shoot Me! or The King of Queens?  ;D


I watched them all.

Yeah, it sucked when he died! He was really good for the show but I'm glad they were able to keep it good throughout the rest of it's run. Not many shows can do that after losing an important character.


But it wasn't the same when they put in James Garner.
