12. Lost (2004-2010) . . . spoke early and often about God and . . .
. . . religion.
11. Walker, Texas Ranger (1993-2001) . . . frequent Christian imagery.
10. South Park (1997-present) . . . mocks liberals mercilessly for their social values, their foreign-policy beliefs, and their economic foolishness.
9. Everybody Loves Raymond (1996-2005) . . . featured a stable heterosexual two-parent home.

3. Magnum, P.I. (1980-1988) . . . the first depiction of a normal Vietnam veteran in years.
2. The Cosby Show (1984-1992) . . . a show about a black middle-class family that doesn't rip the American government, doesn't fall into the self-victimization of the "racist society," doesn't portray whites as either idiots or bigots, and encourages black children to get an education, get married, and have a family. Revolutionary.
1. 24 (2001-2009) . . . fantastic quality, fantastic conservatism. Too bad the liberals killed it.
