List Rules Upvote your favorite ABC TV Series that aired on TV in the '00s

Some of the '00s series on this list of 2000s ABC shows are still on the air, but you can still rank them from best to worst alongside some of the decade's biggest bygone hits. This '00s ABC shows list is dominated by hour-long dramas, but a few sitcoms and a few of the earliest reality show mega-hits also appear. They all go head to head here, with your votes deciding just which 2000s ABC TV shows were the best.

What are some of the best ABC series that aired in the 2000s? Lost and Grey's Anatomy were two game-changing '00s ABC shows. The network was all about the drama in the 2000s, as Desperate Housewives and Boston Legal were also two of ABC's biggest hits of the decade.

'00s ABC TV series included comedies like According to Jim and My Wife and Kids, but they were overshadowed by the reality shows that really took off at the turn of the century. The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars and Wife Swap all represented reality TV on the air.

Help decide the best '00s ABC shows by voting up your favorite shows and downvoting the ones that inspire zero nostalgia. Please add any good series we may have missed, and if you watched a lot of ABC in the 2000s, rerank the whole list so you can share your definitive version.
