1. Chappelle's Show (Comedy Central)
One of the artistic high points—in any genre—of the decade, Dave Chappelle's all-too-brief sketch show was hilarious, culturally relevant, and even environmentally-friendly. Doubt us on that last one? OK, so we doubt any of the frat boys yelling "I'm Rick James, bitch!" have changed their racial attitudes because of Chappelle's Show, but if just oneof them OD'ed on cocaine after hearing James say it was a hell of a drug, then the world is a better place for everyone else.
