This thread is for TV shows.
Several thousand older public domain classic TV shows from the Internet Archive. With my Logitech Revue the TV shows stream good if I choose the Flash option (the HTML5 version doesn't work on my Revue). There are also options to download all of the TV shows. Everything is free:
The PBS TV shows are available in HD if you log-in on their site. Works good with my Logitech Revue:

Here is the link for the official YouTube free TV Shows section:
It seems like a hodge-podge of stuff so you just kind of have to sort through it to see if you find something that interests you. I also noticed there are some short clips mixed in there (not sure why). I saw quite a few full length animated shows from FUNimation and some National Geographic shows.

John Oliver returned to late night comedy on Sunday with the premiere of Last Week Tonight, his long-awaited news program on HBO. And he was in good form. In the course of his first half hour, the host addressed a week of controversy surrounding America's newly prominent racists and endeavored to make Americans care about the vastly important Indian election, setting himself apart from most American broadcasts in a truly refreshing way. He even took former NSA director Keith Alexander to task for the agency's bulk surveillance program, calling it "The only agency in government that really listens." Check it out.

RerunCentury is like a time machine for TV fans — Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)
by Janko Roettgers - Sept. 19, 2014
SUMMARY: Want to binge-watch like it’s 1956? RerunCentury makes it possible by curating classic TV shows.
-- This is neat: RerunCentury is curating classic TV shows, including titles like the Lucy Show, the original Dragnet, the Gene Autrey Show and more. Episodes of each show can be streamed straight from the site, without any pre-rolls or video ad breaks.
All of the shows on RerunCentury are in the public domain and hosted by the Internet Archive, where you could also download them to play them on the go — but RerunCentury does a great job at making them a bit more discoverable and adding other context to it: TV fans interested in yesteryear’s programs can use a calendar to see what the TV schedule of a typical Sunday afternoon in 1948, 1979 or any other year of the second half of the 20th century looked like.

* I tried this with my Logitech Revue and it works good - however I needed to make a one-time adjustment to the settings on the RerunCentury web site. When I first tried to play the videos the circle just kept spinning around and the video never started. So I moved the cursor over the video screen and then clicked the Internet Archive icon (near the top left of video that says: "more formats from Internet Archive"). Then it takes me to the Internet Archive web site where I clicked the link near the bottom of the video that says: "change to Flash format". Then I went back to the RerunCentury web site and all the videos work with my Revue.
Apparently they use a form of HTML5 that isn't compatible with the outdated Chrome 11 browser on GTV Honeycomb devices. But as I mentioned all the videos will work in the Flash format. There's a chance that the videos in HTML5 version will work with GTV Jellybean devices because they have a more modern Chrome 28 browser. However I don't have a GTV Jellybean device to test that.
