"Nurse Jackie" (Showtime)

For our money, no 2012 dramedy went to loftier heights than Showtime's pill-popping mama drama, particularly given that "Nurse Jackie" was already entering Season 4 and could have become complacent and formulaic. Instead, rightful Emmy nominee Edie Falco -- along with new regular Bobby Cannavale as her tyrannical boss -- took this half-hour show from breezy delight to gripping, heartbreaking places without losing its workplace humor or perspective on everyday life's absurd edges. "Louie" tends to get all the anti-sitcom adoration of late, but "Jackie" merits a generous dose.
