Top Ten TV Shows For Teenagers

The Top TenXW

1Pretty Little Liars

Way better show than any of the other ones on here. It might seem shallow when you first start off, but it actually has a startling amount of depth and mystique.

I love this show! I mean you can actually relate with all the other characters and start worrying about them. The main story line being a mystery and not just sex and getting pregnant makes it all the more fun to watch. I desperately wait for each and every episode to come out! It is full of drama, suspense, love, friendship, jealousy and much more! I totally love it! Go PLL!

I have to admit I read the books first and the T.V. show was way different to what I thought it would be. But after a few episodes I got in to it and it is a really amazing show, though the books were just a little better (:.

The best show ever

2The Vampire Diaries

I used to hear all my friends talk about vampire diaries and I never actually thought it would be good but then when I watched an episode of vampire diaries and I couldn't get off my computer. It is so addicting. I watched 3 whole seasons in 2 days. That's how amazing it is. And it always leaves you on a cliffhanger which makes you want to watch more and more. Now we all have to wait until october 11th to watch the fourth season and every time I think about how long I have to wait I think about Damon and I cry. BTWm Damon is the BEST character ever. At first you'll like Stefan but you'll see that near the end of season 1 you love Damon. He's hilarious. Man, why does it have to take so long to come out? Oh and my favorite episode is season 3 episode 19 - damon&elena.

I love the Vampire Diaries! It is always full of Humor, Drama, Mystery, Thrill, Horror, and ALWAYS leaves you with a cliffhanger, I think this T.V. show is the BEST one around because its magical )

I usually never watch American shows but TVD changed my life, I love it. There's this thing about TVD that other show don't ever have: TVD developed romantic relationships that I thought was impossible at the start of the show, but TVD has this magical thing that makes anything work, whether its shifting personalities of characters up a bit or making situations so that if these characters end up dating each other, it'll be so romantic even if you thought itd be weird at the start at the show. To be honest I've hated all characters on the show at least once, n I've loved them a thousand times back, all the antagonists who you wished never existed before, TVD later on always shows a soft side to them that makes you feel like every bad thing they did was reasonable. Villains can never exist in TVD without you loving them someday, no matter how bad they appear to be at the beginning or at some point of the show.

I love this show - fangirl1967

3Teen Wolf

Its amazing.. I love it! Its not such a typical teen drama, the whole plot makes it just even more interesting than those shows like vampire diaries! Its definitely worth watching it.. So GUYS JUST WATCH IT!

Amazing show! It doesn't get as much credit as it deserves. It has really hot guys and a good plot.

Amazing. I thought it was just going to be some twilight knockoff when I first heard of it, but I'm so happy I gave it a chance because it is so much more. The acting is great, the characters and their relationships with one another are dynamic and intricate, and, although it is about werewolves, it's one of the most relatable shows I've ever watched. If you get past season 1 episode 7 and still don't like it you'll be the first. It may seem like a girl show on the surface but I know an equal amount of guys that watch as well, including my brother! Give it a chance. You won't be disappointed. Witty, suspenseful, and on top of that easy on the eyes!

Great it's a little cheesy but what film isn't

4The Secret Life Of The American Teenager

I love this show.. Made cry and feel young again.. I just want to react on too much used of the word "sex", really wish you could lessen it, it's irritating sometimes, the characters seems to say it every 5 mins so please lessen it. Thanks

I really like this show but I don't like how the characters are always talking about sex and are always in sexual situations. I too, think that they should lessen how much the characters are talking about it, I find it kind of annoying!

I personally love this show it has real life situations in perspectives of many different situations and family crisis'. It's a really amazing show. Yes it does talk about sexual relations quite a bit but isn't that what most people talk about in high school anyway? Not that they should. I highly recommend this show. It has a lot of life lessons. It taught me a lot and it also helped me better understand that there is always two sides of a situation.

I kind of liked the show, it drove me crazy how the whole thing revolved around sex. Every episode did and the characters were kind of stubborn but lovable.

its a cool show I'm sad they stopped airing though - Flyingmidget12

Drake and Josh is awesome. No denying it - DopeWithABass

Great show. This show is good for families, teens, and many more people.
Drake and Josh ar

How about Zoey 101, that was better because it had no laugh tracks distracting the show from it's viewers.

Basically my childhood!

6The Fosters

Definitely one of my favorite shows in the universe. There are parts when you can't stop laughing and parts where you can't stop crying. I think the amazing part about this show is the fact that you are never bored. There is always something going on. It is one of the most relatable T.V. shows I have ever watched.

This show is definitely my favorite. Full of drama and romance, tons of emotions well up inside while watching this show. And every episode has a tear jerking ending or a curious cliffhanger.

This show is one of the best new shows of 2013! It's really good & I recommend for anyone who enjoys sad, dramatic, loving setting. One of my new favorites along with One Tree Hill & Vampire Diaries

This show is the best out of the whole world it one of my favorite show with my favorite people and it deserves to be at the top the show is funny dramatic and really entertaining and exciting!

7One Tree Hill

After three episodes you will spend the rest of the year looking for a show almost as good as this one. It is on net flicks too. You will like it if you also like life unexpected and psych, because those are my three favorite shows.

This show inspires me so much, and makes me believe in myself. Its funny, sort of realistic, displays all kinds of emotions, and all the characters are amazing. Best show I've come across all my life

One Tree Hill should definitely have a higher rating. The show inspires so many teens including me. I fell in love with the stories behind the characters and the chemistry all of the characters have with one another. All nine seasons were brought together with love, laughter, and tears. You definitely won't find another One Tree Hill out there. #1 Show for Teens in my opinion by far.

My favorite show ever!

This show is like so underrated! Way better than many of them above. It's the actual teenage life and well so funny! Just love this one

I love this show because it shows the real life of a teenager in high school and I love all the drama. I hope that MTV will always keep this show going, it also gives good advice to teens about what they should do in any of those situations.

Its funny. It talks all about a teenage life and also all about high school drama. I really liked it. This show is funny, cool, and romantic. I also love the whole fight between Jake and Matty. I want her to stay with Matty they make a cute couple.

I love the show

9Gossip Girls

Gossip girl is full of drama and excitement. It should stay at the top of this list?

I don't watch it that much anymore but when I did, It was really entertaining and I used to keep up with it and watch it almost everyday. I might start watching it again but I really don't have much time for it but it's a really interesting and dramatic show. I recommend it!

gossip girl is way better than any of this other shows I highly recommend it, it includes drama, love and I can assure you, you will love it

I haven't watched it yet but I am going to today so I'll give some feedback

10Family GuyFamily Guy is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the Griffins, a family consisting of parents Peter (Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Idiotic Son), and Stewie more.

Family Guy was born for the teenage audience, its sense of humor is made to make a teenager laugh. With so much sex talk and violence in this show its teenage heaven!

When you're a 40 year old mom who just got back from her run and had too much coffee

Family guy is the best! Stewie is the best character by far. I love almost all the characters except MEG! She is SO BORING! If I had to choose my 5 favorite characters it would go like this: Stewie, Peter, Herbert (pedifile), Quagmire, and then Consuela. If you do not already love Family Guy, I suggest you watch it.

Mad funny especially stewie without him everything on the show would suck

I am a teen, and Family Guy is just great. The random, daring humor is what gets me.

The Contenders


This show is so amazing, not one episode is boring. I've been watching it for years now and it's only gotten better and better. With every new generation the writers seem to be able to think of more story lines and they are never boring. You miss the old characters but also you learn to love the new even more.

It is a soap opera and soap operas are addicting to almost anyone, and they have adult content on them, Degrassi counts. - nelsonerico1

Before I actually started watching this show I thought it was stupid and lame, but after I started watching it, it was amazing. My favorite part is the drama and tension between the characters, and there is NEVER a boring episode. To me this is one of the best shows in the world. I hope you guys are able to see that too.

I personally love degrassi but the older episodes and the old characters now it just doesn't seem the same anymore. I love the drama and all but new characters change things sometimes in a good way and sometimes in a bad way.

A show that accurately depicts the trials and tribulations of the teenage years, Degrassi is able to explain many of the questions of life that a teenager may face, and integrates them into storylines with average, complex teenagers.

Best show ever! Makes you jump in your seat! Everyone will find a character that they can relate to. I recommend it to all teens!

It's not only about high school and singing, it reveals many hidden messages that deal with everyday teens. Very inspiring characters!

My favorite show of all time. I love most of the song selections and all of the characters are extremely talented. Every teen needs to watch this show. They deal with topics that teens need to be educated in. I am a huge fan of the show, but I will admit, the season that honored Finn's death, was complete crap. However the 6th and final season really brought the show back to its roots which I enjoyed.

Glee is without a doubt the best T.V. shows ever created! Even though music is a really big part of it, it's not just about show choir. It's about school, family, love, self esteem, dreams, friendship... Everybody could love Glee. You will never feel lonely with Glee. When you watch that show, it makes you feel special. You become a part of something very special. I REALLY recommend it!

It's a really great show!

13Zoey 101

I miss it! It was such a good show, especially season 2. The plots were a bit stupid, but yet cute. You felt like you were sitting there with zoey. Best show!

Good show. Actors and actresses were brilliant I think they should have this show reinvited to T.V.. It was an excellent show made everyone smile. Interesting ideas etc.

! I remember this show! I can't believe they stopped showing this show. This was such an awesome show! I loved this show ever since I was 6 years old! I miss this show so much! I would put more exclamation marks but it would take up this whole page! -

My Mom & Dad changed the channel since they told me not to watch the show because it's too inappropriate to watch.

So sad the stopped airing loved it while it lasted

14The Originals

I love the Originals. When you are looking at the reviews on all of these shows you are probably really confused on which show to actually watch. Although this show is deep and dark this is an absolutely amazing show.

This should be number one with The Vampire Diaries and Teen Wolf. These are the best. The other shows on here are horrible in comparison to these three master shows that I watch all the time. Love it.

Love it so much!
And the guys are so hot

The originals is a grate show

15The Walking DeadThe Walking Dead is an American horror drama television series developed by Frank Darabont, based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard . Andrew Lincoln plays the show's lead character, sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who awakens from a coma discovering more.

How is this so down low? Most of the shows on here are TERRIBLE and made for kids, not teenagers. This is obviously the best show for teenagers. Putting Shake it Up, Jessie and Good Luck Charlie makes it seem like we have way too many preppy princesses in this world. Trust me, I'm a teen.

Best show on T.V.. The plot is amazing, the zombies are gross, and after a while you start to really care about the characters. Definitely a must watch for more than just teens.

Should be a lot higher on this list.

Best show ever you never get tired of watching it!

16Once Upon a Time

This show is great whether your 12 or 20! All fairytale characters find themselves trapped in reality. Starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison!

Each episode end wants you waiting for more. Even the previews give a dim but suspenseful review.

I watch this with my mom and love it some seasons are really cheesy and bad acting such as season 4 but once you get past that it really is a good show. Good for 8 year olds but also has deeper meaning so that older kids can enjoy it too. Most of my friends watch it and it is one of the major topics in our conversations.

It is really good and interesting

17iCarlyiCarly is an American teen sitcom that ran on Nickelodeon from September 8, 2007 until November 23, 2012. The series, created by Dan Schneider, focuses on teenager Carly Shay, who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson.

I think that iCarly is a very funny show. I'm really bummed that it's already the final season. I hope someone makes a T.V. show that's like iCarly. ICarly has a GREAT cast.

Making a show with the same plot as others is usually a rip off, this means a show like iCarly may be a ripoff of iCarly, not worth watching.

ICarly is amazing! Every time I watch it I crack up and everybody just looks at me like I'm insane. I have seen almost every single episode. My favorite part is always when Freddie and Sam are fighting. It is so funny!

Whoever likes iCarly really is insane, they are idiots who cannot act, they just do the alcoholic moves & talk about things that are not kid appropriate.

I think because it is really funny to see spencer do a lot of funny things

This is not funny, they think it's funny, but this is just a stupid show just like any other new show on Nick.

Spencer is the best

So funny! I laugh every time that I watch this show! I think that it can appeal to people of all ages, so you should definitely check it out

So funny! It makes me laugh all the time. I would really recommend watching this because it is just so good for sad loner nights. Zooey Deschanel is really hilarious!

Love it! Such a funny show with likeable characters.

Awesome the awkwardness plus the casts awesome delivery of it just makes it better

19The Lying Game

This show is amazing. I latterly stayed up 2 night in a row just to watch it. It's so awesome. You figure out things that you least expect and you will never get board. It's the best I'm telling you you have got to watch it. Its on Netflix now better hurry until its to late. And trust me you wont be sorry.

This show is the best show ever! Once I started watching it I couldn't stop.

Love this show it was very good and I just kept on watching it and it kept on getting better and better.

Real good show! Hate how it ended

20VictoriousVictorious is an American sitcom created by Dan Schneider that originally aired on Nickelodeon from March 27, 2010 through February 2, 2013 . The series revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, a teenager who attends a performing arts high school called Hollywood Arts High School, after taking her more.

Very cute show! Perfect for young girls who enjoy stuff like this.

It had crude humor, such as bikinis, bras, sex, boobs, etc, yet there was violence such as slapping someone's eye, shooting an arrow straight towards a woman's hand, and don't forget the Earthquake that hit California, which hurt lots of people and maybe even killed some, all of that is MUCH worse than her singing. - nelsonerica

Absolute LOVE this show! So mad they cancelled it. Keeps me laughing the whole time and I got so attached to every character but Cat by far was and is my favorite!

I'm glad they canceled it, the laugh tracks & lack of plot just made me want to change the channel.

I really enjoyed this and would love for it to come back on and if it did would love to see a love triangle between tori beck and andrea, as tori and beck would make a cute couple but so would andrea and tori

This show is so funny. Unrealistic, but that's what makes it hilarious!
