The Huffington Post launched nine years ago, on May 9, 2005. In honor of our 9th birthday, we're looking back on the best TV shows that debuted in 2005, which, as it turned out, was a great year for television. It introduced the world to some of the most beloved series, many of which are still on the air and some that have recently come to an end (R.I.P. "HIMYM").
Take a look back in TV time with us below. You can find more HuffPost anniversary coverage here.
