Underrated TV

What, in your opinion, is the most underrated show on television right now? How about the most overrated? If you really want to, you can pick more than one.

My answers?

I am a fan of "Arrested Development" and know it's not doing so well, but it is at least *recognized* as being a good show (it has won awards, etc.) So my vote goes to "Veronica Mars". It's a great show about teens written for adults, it's much smarter than it appears, and it's managing to keep a lot of plotlines in the air without doing much ball-dropping. Plus, it's pretty and vaguely Buffyesque (except without the monsters and stuff. :)) (An LJ friend said it better than I could here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/wisteria_/470836.html ) I guess it's recognized in the sense that critics tend to like it, but it's ratings are low and it's not as talked-about as AD.

As for overrated...Hmm. I tried to watch "Joey" when it started, but I find it incredibly bland and stereotypical. And it's doing just fine ratings-wise. There is no justice in the world.
