Last week, actor Andy Griffith died at the age of 86. While he is best known for the 1960s sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, many lawyers and others also remember him for his role as Ben Matlock in the show of the same name.

While Ben Matlock only garnered an honorable mention in the ABA Journal’s “The 25 Greatest Fictional Lawyers (Who Are Not Atticus Finch)” feature in 2010 (click here to launch a gallery of those 25), in 2009, our panel put Matlock at No. 19 on its list of “The 25 Greatest Legal TV Shows” (click here to launch that gallery).

So this week—with inspiration from the ABA’s question on Facebook—we’d like to ask you: What’s your favorite legal show on TV right now? We also welcome comments about legal dramas that have recently been canceled (RIP The Firm and Harry’s Law) or haven’t yet aired (Made in Jersey).

Answer in the comments.

Read the answer to last week’s question: What’s the Best Lawyer Vanity License Plate You’ve Seen?

Featured answer:

Posted by Ex-Prosecutor: “PRSCTR. It was on my car. People said: That’s dangerous. I said: Nah, the people I put in jail can’t figure it out. Then a fellow prosecutor in another county got assassinated. I took the plate off and went anonymous again.”
