TV protagonists

Can anyone name a television series that doesn't have a single central protagonist and isn't a comedy or a soap?
Oh, and nothing non-fiction either, smarty-pants.

I was just thinking about how it's a fairly impressive feat that the main actors on long-running tv shows appear in every single episode. I mean, obviously those playing title roles like Sarah Michelle Gellar or David Boreanaz must appear in every episode. But then you have shows like The Sopranos or even Star Trek, where there is a clear protagonist.

I just thought of another category without a central protagonist: police dramas. Law and Order and the like.

Can anyone else think of other shows or categories that break the single protagonist mould?
And does it work?
