If the yokels of this world had picture boxes with "the cable", they would appreciate FX's hit series Justified (Wednesdays, 10 p.m.). Based on crime novelist Elmore Leonard's short story "Fire in the Hole", it tells the story of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), an ornery, sharpshooting lawman who has been reassigned from Miami to small-town Kentucky, where he grew up. With a scowl and a snarl, he polices the incompetent backwoods criminals, ne’er-do-wells, and yokels he encounters, putting bullets in their simple asses whenever necessary. Some of the more memorable hicks to have graced the boob tube, they inspire this hillbilly-rific countdown of the 10 best television yokels of all time. G'on head 'n' read it now!
