Morpheus on… TV Show Titles

Have you noticed how US TV shows with one-word-titles are usually the best shows on TV?

Off the top of my head – and in alphabetical order – I would cite “Becker”, “Bones”, “Cheers”, “Columbo”, “Dexter”, “Dirrt”, “Frasier”, “Friends”, “Fringe”, “Futurama”, “House”, “Kojak”, “M.A.S.H.”, “Monk”, “Mythbusters” and “Taxi”.

Of course, it’s not a 100% rule – “Baretta”, “Baywatch”, “Dallas” and “Greenacres” being obvious examples.

Plus “E.R.”, “Hill St Blues”, “Lou Grant”, “Studio 60” and “West Wing” went with more than one word and they were no slouches.

And “Star Trek” begat shows with many words in their titles.

But as a GENERAL guide, if an American TV show goes with a one-word title – check it OUT!
