List Rules Vote up the best spinoff series that aired in the 2000s

The best 2000s spin-off series are comedies, dramas, and everything in between. These are the best of the best that aired on TV from 2000 to 2009, ranked from best to worst. Some  of these extremely popular and highly rated shows expanded the universe of the series they were based off of, and others are so different from their predecessors you might not even know that they were in any way related unless you looked it up. Some top spin-off shows of the decade even surpassed the success of their previous installments.

What kinds of shows are on this best 2000s spin-offs list? The Cheers spin-off Frasier was a smash hit all the way up through its finale in 2005. Kelsey Grammer reprised his role as Dr. Frasier Crane and some of his Cheers' co-stars like Ted Danson and Bebe Neuwirth even stopped by for guest appearances. MTV's The Hills is another great spin-off that aired in the 2000s, and CSI: Miami, which followed in the footsteps of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, is yet another.

So, which of these shows do you think is the best spin-off from the 2000s? Vote the best shows up to the top of this list and share some of your favorite episodes in the comments section.
