Poll: What is your favourite Canadian TV show of the 2000s?

The third series in the Great Canadian TV Playoff is complete and Due South edged out The Kids in the Hall for favourite show of the 1990s.

Now it’s time for the final decade: the 2000s.

Unlike the Stanley Cup playoffs, TV, Eh’s Great Canadian TV Playoff boasts solely homegrown head-to-head matchups of television shows. Through the rest of the month, we’ll pit eight television shows (just like the NHL) from the 1970s, 80s, 90s and 2000s against one another until the final showdown to name the top Canadian TV series of all time on May 29.

Cast your vote now and spread the word — the winner of the 70s and the 80s battle it out head to head starting on Monday!

[A quick note to Murdoch Mysteries fans: your favourite bowed in 2008 and still continues, so it fits in the 2010s bracket.]

  1. I voted for Rick Mercer Report but I wouldn’t call it my favourite show of that decade; it was just the only one on the above list I actually liked. My favourite show from that decade is probably Degrassi but as its current maybe it doesn’t count for that decade. Here’s my top 10 Canadian shows for that decade:
    Jozi H (2006-2007)
    Degrassi: TNG (2001-current)
    MVP (2008)
    Instant Star (2004-2008)
    Wild Roses (2009)
    Renegadepress.com (2004-2008)
    Caitlin’s Way (2000-2002)
    Canadian Idol (2003-2008)
    Whistler (2006-2008)
    Intelligence (2006-2007)

    6 of the above shows didn’t see a third season. I think it was a pretty bad decade for tv in general after a great 90s decade but it was preceded by a good 2010s decade which is only half done.

  2. This is a very difficult choice. From the list, I’d choose Da Vinci’s Inquest. I also loved Billable Hours, Intelligence, and Little Mosque on the Prairie.

  3. Without hesitation, I voted “DaVinci’s Inquest” (how can it be in last place???). I also enjoyed “Being Erica,” the only other show on the list that I watched.

  4. Slings & Arrows. Definitely. Not just one of my favourite Canadian shows of the 2000s but one of my favourite shows period.

  5. Anything Hugh Dillon is in. Such a great actor. Let’s hear it for Hugh Dillon.
