11 Best Shows of 2011:
#1. 'Parks and Recreation'
Amy Poehler's little show that could turned into a comedy juggernaut this year. Not only did it continue to deliver the biggest and most consistent laughs on television, but thanks to Leslie's super sweet but never saccharine relationship with Ben, Parks and Recreation introduced that all-important "Couple To Root For" into its storytelling.
Fleshing out the world of Pawnee – thanks to community unifying events like The Harvest Festival, time capsule conversations, wiffle ball games, Model UN sessions, weddings and funerals – only gave us more characters to love, lines to quote and requote.
So, Treat Yo' Self … to the entire series since every installment could have qualified as Parks & Recreation's "Best Episode."
