The Walking Dead
The Big Bang Theory
Top Gear (BBCA)
And I'm a big NCIS fan
These are pretty much 90% of the TV I watch lately.
Six Feet Under, House, The Event, Mad Men
No one has mentioned Fringe? That show keeps getting better with every episode. You said no female leads, well this one starts with a female but the group comes together in about episode three. It's an updated X-Files type of show, but unlike X, Fringe comes together, and you see the patterns, at the end of the first season. Don't want to talk much about it if you plan on watching it.
Sons of Anarchy is also pretty good but I lost track of them midway through Season 1, so now I have to catch up on DVDs. Bike gang and how they attempt to survive in the modern world, I guess. Very good show from the episodes I watched.
EDIT: Oh, you also wanted brief descriptions. Added them.
I only watch more adult-themed series these days, since the teenage and chick stuff bores the hell out of me (no offence to anyone)
Let's start with the current hype that's everywhere vampire romance.
Yeah twilight sucks, I agree. But then you have vampire diaries which is slightly less bad and made for an adult audience (possibly written by a guy) and then you have True Blood.
Well True Blood is really quite interesting (still watching season 1, not sure how many episodes have been released yet). It's vampire romance with an extreme american accent in an extremely mature setting with sex and drugs being quite ... let's say present. The story seems to be quite good too, with a not very hidden hint at racism.
Next up Supernatural. Who doesn't know this series? As the title of the series suggests it's all about the supernatural. Great show, well written and nice effects.
That's all I can think of for the moment, supernatural has 6 seasons so far so there's a few weeks of entertainment for you.
I actually started to watch fringe (I get alot of wtf moments from that show) and thanks everyone for contributing to me boredom lol
Breaking Bad deserves mention here. One of the best shows on TV. Intense, two of the best lead performances, and also darkly hilarious at times. Really you can't go wrong with anything on AMC at the moment, but Breaking Bad is the best.
Misfits. British show, the basic premise is sort of Heroes-ish, but is better than that show in every way (save maybe special effects). Very darkly comic take on the genre, but it also is pretty damn epic at points too.
Someone mentioned the inbetweeners- great show, the character's personalities are hilarious.
Another great british comedy is "Gavin and Stacey", which many people like not only for the comedy in it, but also because the main set of characters in it are so easy to love, and relate to.
Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
Sons of Anarchy, House, Big bang Theory, LIE TO ME, Dexter, Weeds, etc.
You could try looking on Hulu under what's popular too. They have a failry decent selection of shows to get started.
The Walking Dead is the only good thing on TV right now, and this sunday is the last episode of the season. As for me, I'm watching a lot of classic anime shows again like yu yu hakusho(just finished) and just started on the original Dragon Ball.
I could rhyme off a lot of shows. I'll pick two.
Lost. If you haven't watched the whole series it's a pleasure. Sure it has its flaws and it does go through a lul, but as a whole it's a very clever and well designed series.
Battlestar Galactica. What to say? It's a story of survival. It's a journey you want to go on. The story arc is amazing and getting deep into it is worth it.
If you haven't seen The Wire you shouldn't be asking for any other television recommendations. Go watch it. Now.
I'm REALLY picky about my TV shows so my recommendations are :
Boardwalk Empire - about booze and gangsters
The Wire - about drugs, gangsters, cops, city politics, and much more ( this show ended its last season a few years ago, but you can find them on DVD) This show really changed the way I look at TV
House - :P
Arrested Development. So good.
Hey Guys I will start to compile all the recommendations including my own in OP so that everyone can look at it easier.

S4 definitely was the worst, because it was rushed. I'm pretty sure it is the shortest too. I just wish Yusuke used the demon form that he used to kill sensui more than once.
Also I was so excited for another tournament, but it only lasted like 2 episodes lol. At least the series ended great. Probably in my top 5 endings in anime of all time.
When I first started this thread I didn't think I would get this much input lol keep on posting guys and girls. I wonder how long the list will get >.>
