You didn't seriously think there would be Canadian stations in here, did you? BTW, I realized how much ABC sucks; I can't think of one program I watch on there other than some college basketball and the occasional NBA game.
I watch college football on ABC and that's about all.

Hmm - I actually had to think a bit about this because I really don't watch "channels", but rather, "shows".

So....
Letterman (CBS)
Stewart (ComedyCentral)
Maher (HBO / MC)
30 Rock (NBC)
Office (NBC)
Lost (ABC)
News (CBC or Global)
NFL (NBC, CBS, FOX, ESPN/TSN)
Playoffs (whoever is carrying NHL, NCAA, MLB and NBA at the time)

1- Superchannel
2- TMN/HBO
3- Animal Planet
4- National Geographic
5- Discovery
6- Oasis
7- TVTropolis
8- Comedy Network
9- Teletoon
10- ...

I really had a hard time with 10th spot as a couple of good channels are available.
Best I could do is a tie

10T- Biography
10T- History
10T- Treasure

Such a cop out :)

Mind you, if NASA ever broadcasts in Canada it would so knock those others out
