Question: Hi! Love your column! What are your favorite shows? — Sanket

Ausiello: It's no secret that I live and breathe Scrubs, Gilmore Girls, Carnivale, The Apprentice, The Amazing Race, The Sopranos, 24 and The Shield. But I'm also a big fan of Nip/Tuck, Survivor, The O.C., American Idol and The Daily Show. Of this fall's new offerings, I'm hooked on Lost, Desperate Housewives and Veronica Mars.
