    Friday Night Lights is a little high for me. Great show should be about ten spots lower

    Married....With Children is not on the list :facepalm:

    All it did was carry the fledgling FOX network for 3 1/2 years until The Simpsons came along in 1990. Were it not for the loyal MWC fanbase, the network might have folded, and not become the powerhouse it is today

    Happy Days should be on there. It broke all kinds of ground. It ran forever with the cast relatively intact until late in its run. It was never edgy or dramatic. I guess funny isn't enough.

    Upon further review, this list is all kinds of fucked up. It's about as relevant as a list I could make.

    Mary Tyler Moore...so overrated. Replace it with "The Young Ones".

    Also, no "Trailer Park Boys" or "Venture Brothers"??? :fil:

    If they're going to include Letterman, where is Tonight show with Johnny Carson. There would be no Letterman without Carson. These guys are fags that made this list.

    95. Family Ties

    This was a good show for a few years, at least until they jumped the shark by bringing in another kid. It's probably on the list because of Michael J Fox's Emmy wins, but Michael Gross had great comic timing.

    There should be no current tv shows on it.

    I can't believe the included "Lost"....might as well include "Heroes" too if you want to give accolades to shows that were really good at first, but took a quick nosedive. :facepalm:























    Oh yeah, and lambert, where are the pokies or panty slips in this thread? :fil:

    Hi Fran :hug:

    Have you seen the new BSG?

    I think you might put that on you list, if you have seen it.

    It is truly brilliant.
