List Rules Vote up the best 2000s TV shows that make you feel nostalgic for the aughts

The 2000s was a decade of great technological achievements. During this time, we left behind the simpler comforts of the '90s in order to make way for the high tech tools of tomorrow. Kids traded in their roller blades and scooters for iPods and cellphones, and even started changing what they watched on TV. Goodbye Rugrats, hello Spongebob! We've put together a list of the best TV shows of the 2000s for the next time you're feeling a little aughts nostalgia. 
 
2000s TV was all about reflecting on how we were able to experience "the best of both worlds." Some '00s shows, like As Told By Ginger and Even Stevens, held on to that '90s vibe while shows like Rock of Love and Charm School paved the way for guilty pleasure viewing. Shows like Grounded for Life and Lizzie McGuire depicted what real life was like for teenagers and kids growing up in the 2000s, while Slime Time Live and Double Dare 2000 took their old-school approaches up a notch for bigger, better entertainment.  

What were your favorite TV shows in the 2000s? Maybe you loved the dark, creepy world of Invader Zim, or maybe you were all about the laughs on Punk'd. Perhaps you wanted to prank your friends and family, like the guys on Jackass and Viva La Bam, or maybe you wanted A Shot of Love with Tila Tequila. Vote up your favorite 2000s TV shows below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section. Feel free to add any of your favorite '00s shows that we may have missed at the bottom of the list.
