List Rules Vote up your favorite NBC TV series that aired in the 2000s

These are the best 2000s NBC shows ranked by user votes. The 2000s was a great time for NBC television programs. Some of the best 2000s NBC shows were dramas and other good 2000s NBC series were comedies. Obviously. But regardless of genre, there were some great shows on NBC in the 2000s. Many of the greatest 2000s NBC TV shows are still popular to this day with syndicated reruns.

What shows appear near the top of this best 2000s NBC shows list? The Office had viewers laughing out loud with Michael Scott's antics as soon as the first episode premiered in 2005. Although this great NBC sitcom hilariously mirrored American office jobs, the show was based on the UK series of the same name created by Ricky Gervais. 30 Rock is another good show that aired on NBC in the 2000s.

Judd Apatow's Freaks and Geeks garnered a cult following before it was cancelled in 2000, making it an even bigger hit with reruns. Other great shows that are featured on the top 2000s NBC shows list include The West Wing, Just Shoot Me! and Frasier.
