I reserve the right to retroactively add "Adam" and "The Invention of Lying" to this list; living in a small town, I have to wait for DVD to see them. So these are my top 10 movies of 2009 as of this moment.
Although two shows on this list are much missed and a third ("Dollhouse") is on its way out, 2009 was generally a year when TV networks got smarter about marketing.
"Friday Night Lights" would've been canceled under the old system, but cost-sharing between DirecTV and NBC keeps it going into a fourth season. And "Glee," midway through its first season, has already pumped out two moneymaking soundtracks.
