HBO or SHO for Original Series'?

All - I was thinking (which happens occasionally) that this used to be a NO-BRAINER it was HBO-HBO-HBO - The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Deadwood, etc. Now, my vote is for SHO for 3 reasons:

1) Weeds - My Guilty Pleasure.

2) Sleeper Cell - can wait until it's back for Season 2.

3) Dexter - keeping my fingers crossed that this will be "must see".

The only shows I still watch on HBO/SHO are The Wire and Weeds, so Showtime gets the nod for Weeds being HD.
The deadwood movies and another season of Rome keeps HBO in the lead for a little while longer. Then I am leaning towards cancelling it.
Showtime definitely has the advantage here. Weeds, The L Word, Brotherhood, Sleeper Cell, and now Dexter... while HBO has ended Deadwood, Carnivale, Six Feet Under, and still broadcasts The Wire in 4:3.
DEFINITELY Showtime...MASTERS OF HORROR, BROTHERHOOD (which I like better than SOPRANOS), WEEDS, the upcoming DEXTER. I also enjoyed HUFF (particularly Oliver Platt) although that series may be over. And let's not forget that, unlike HBO, they try to present their theatrical films in OAR when possible.
I watched a preview of Showtime's upcoming DEXTER. Looks promising.
