    It’s weird. A lot of great shows that could have made for great two-time winners in the context of their races. Still, I don’t think I’d have given any of them more than one victory, though a couple would’ve made for viable second-place picks.

    Some of my personal picks for the last 20 years:

    2014: Breaking Bad

    2013: Game of Thrones

    2012: Breaking Bad

    2011: Mad Men
    2010: Friday Night Lights

    2009: Breaking Bad (The Shield as a runner-up)

    2008: Mad Men

    2007: The Sopranos (flip-flop with The Wire’s 4th season, each being among the greatest TV seasons)

    2006: 24

    2005: Lost

    2004: The Sopranos

    2003: The Wire (24 could’ve won here again)

    2002: Six Feet Under

    2001: The West Wing

    2000: The West Wing

    1999: The Sopranos

    1998: The Practice

    1997: Law & Order (The X-Files close after)

    1996: The X-Files (ER close after)

    1995: ER (though NYPD Blue wasn’t a bad choice)
    1994: NYPD Blue
    1993: Picket Fences (have to watch Homicide: Life on the Street)
    1992: Northern Exposure
    1991: Star Trek: The Next Generation
    1990: Twin Peaks

    So, looking through, I think 24 could’ve also won for Season 2, while ER and NYPD Blue would’ve been great two-time victors if they hadn’t lost for each of their inaugural seasons.

    Lost. Especially that final season. I know a lot of people were turned off by it after a while but I thought Season Six wrapped things up very well even with that much talked about finale

    ER. Considering how popular and critically acclaimed the show was it’s puzzling to me that it only got 1 win.   Frankly, IMHO the show was worthy of at least 6 Drama Series wins, as the series was pretty much the best show on TV its first six or so seasons.
