Television Critics Awards nominees: Help me pick the best TV of the 2009-2010 season

Glee It's the time of year when TV critics try to prove we know more than industry executives, Emmy voters, Golden Globes balloters and all the rest -- voting for the Television Critics Association's 2010 Awards has begun.

Tcalogo1 Already, we've had ballotting to pick our final nominees. As you might expect, Fox's Glee, ABC's Modern Family and AMC's Breaking Bad scored well, reflecting the fact that they're among the best series on TV and that they were airing good work when we were doing the initial voting.

We've also had some grousing already over nominees -- how did Friday Night Lights make program of the year but not best drama? But we try hard to spread around the love in the awards, so it's not unusual for different collections of shows to land in similar categories.

So, here's where you come in.

I want to hear your picks from this list. I have until July 5 to vote, and your feedback means a lot to me.

Time to sound off. The winners almost always show for the TCA's awards in July, which I'll attend this year in Los Angeles during our Summer Press Tour.

So who do you like? And why?
