Most of us are still riding that high off of the Gators' recent wins against Georgia and Vanderbilt, but let’s be real — it’s been a tough two years for Florida football. Maybe Coach Muschamp finally figured out how to turn this program around, or maybe it’s a fluke.

This Friday is America’s birthday, and what better way to celebrate than watching all your favorite shows set in the nation’s capital? I’m currently interning in Washington D.C. –sadly Olivia Pope is not here—and I think it’s given me a bit more insight into my favorite political shows. Here are my picks for the best fictional D.C. shows:
I’ll readily admit that I look forward to the Oscars and the Emmys way more than the Super Bowl. Awards shows are a strange breed. We watch wealthy people cry when given an award by other wealthy people- and we LOVE it.
