The Top Ten

1 Breaking Bad Breaking Bad Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013.

One of the most masterfully produced shows I've ever seen, the feelings this show elicits in its audience rivals the emotions Citizen Kane must've produced in it's audience back in the 1940's, it's just that damn good, a true testimony to honesty and purity in an art form.

A extremely well done story. This is the ONLY show that's ever left me in suspense as to what was gonna happen. Can be funny to boot. No doubt the best show I've ever seen.

Breaking Bad is the only drama I have ever felt like I was living all the story and made me want to start another episode when the one I was watching ended. Masterpiece that will be remembered as one of the greatest.

A great work by Vince-Brayan and...

2 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

What the hell? How is the greatest show of all time only number 29? Family Guy is a hilarious comedy, but I haven't even heard of some of the shows placed in the top 20. Someone needs to order HBO premium to appreciate great entertainment.

No T.V. show comes even close to being as good as Game Of Thrones

Why the hell is icarly and drake and josh on this list? "victorious"? Really?

This should be 2 not 9 what

3 How I Met Your Mother How I Met Your Mother How I Met Your Mother is an American sitcom that originally aired on CBS from September 19, 2005, to March 31, 2014. The series follows the main character, Ted Mosby, and his group of friends in Manhattan.

This show is hilarious, with a unique format and incredibly interesting characters. It's the only show with a laugh track I like, for both its comedy and it's incredible amount of heart

One of the greatest love stories of all time. Unique and incredibly written, with a cast of characters you watch and can't help but fall in love with.

Definitely one of the best of all time.. if not the best.. Such an incredible 9 year journey.. You will forever be in our hearts How I Met Your Mother

My all-time favorite sitcom.

4 Lost Lost Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.

Without doubt LOST is the greatest T.V. series of all time. Don't believe the "Unanswered questions" myth.

Its just amazing, thrilling, action and a howl lot of mystery.

I've seen most of these series and I can tell that Lost is definitely the best.

One of the best T.V. shows of all time.if someone is planning to watch this then I suggest start watching it now.this series won't bore you a bit.and every episode in the end leaves a special thing that will make you to track other episodes. - zxm

5 The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the series, along with Steven Molaro, and also some wasted guest stars from time to time.

The best show ever. Complete entertainer.

This show is a breath of fresh air in comedy. And Penny, I hate to sound shallow but gah she is so hot

The only T.V. show that I feel like understands the daily life of a nerd. Myself being one, this is my favorite show of all time and it should be higher

6 Prison Break Prison Break Prison Break is an American television serial drama created by Paul Scheuring, that was broadcast on Fox for four seasons, from 2005 to 2009. The series revolves around two brothers.

Okay, Prison break was engaging the first season and should have been one season only. But then they dragged it out and beat a dead horse with it and I watched the second season out obligation to the time I had previously invested into it. This should be lower on the list, why is sopranos like 35 on here? If anything it's a classic of the century

Prison Break is the best show. You have great characters and a great plot. Congratulations to all the people behind the show. It's returning 2016. This and Lost.

Ha ha,glad its here,and second glad a new series is coming - zxm

7 Family Guy Family Guy Family 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 ...read more.

The show once upon a time was funny and enjoyable to watch. Then as it progressed to later seasons it became more offensive to Christianity and religion in general, always had a political agenda to convey, and got way too musical. I know this is classic Seth, and a direct reflection of who he is, and by all means is very talented, but if you're going to be offensive, take a shot at EVERYBODY. like South Park

One of the funniest shows to have ever broadcasted on planet earth. Hands down, the humor, the dialogue timing, the punches. Flawlessly and fabulously done.

By far the funniest show I've ever seen. Although it declined in season 10, it has millions upon millions of Facebook fans and is broadcasted more on T.V. than any other show probably.

Funny and a great theme song good for all ages nice great epic good pictures family and a great series - bostoncowboys

8 Dexter

Well conceived, but lost its direction at the end

The best show number 1.

9 The Office (U.S.) The Office (U.S.) The Office is an American television comedy series that aired on NBC from March 24, 2005 to May 16, 2013.

The Office is the best show since Seinfeld. Always leaves me smiling and satisfied... That's what she said. (Just had to squeeze that in there... That's what she said)

This is on the list for all of the episodes with Steve Carell. The post-Michael Scott era is not as funny, but is still a hilarious show. - oceanic815

Should be number one... the best characters of all time

10 The Walking Dead The Walking Dead The 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 ...read more.

I'll take it to the top 5. It certainly doesn't deserves to be 19th. Best T.V. show ever. Rick, Daryl and Glenn have done a great job. But I get angry of carl. I don't know why. Deserves to be in the top 5.

By far the best show on T.V. I can't even think of it being back here its should at least be in the top 5

One of the best T.V. show ever!

cool

I am pretty sure this didn't start in the 21st century. Still great though.

It should be 1. It really funny.

A dismal 32? Vvhat a sham!. Really. the comedy is so original, you'll be literally gasping.

12 24

From nuclear and biological threats, assassinations, bombs, drama, and more bombs, comes the most thrilling T.V. show of all time.

A masterpiece with no flaws whatsoever. I watched at least one season from each series on the top 20 list. 24, to me, is number one by far.

This is the best! I just watched entire seasons with 200 episodes up to season 9 episode 7 so far.

13 The Simpsons The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that started in 1989, and is still running as of 2017, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer and his family Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie going through a long series of misadventures.
14 Fringe

A very underrated show, but anything made by J.J. abrams is usually fantastic, and this show is. - oceanic815

15 NCIS

I love this show and everything about it

16 Top Gear Top Gear Top Gear is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is a relaunched version of the original 1977 show of the same name, airing since 2002, and becoming the most widely watched factual television programme in the world.

It's essential Sunday Night viewing. It's fun seeing Jeremy, James and Richard doing the challenges E.G. in one episode they tried to find the best cheap car to use as a police car, with humorous results.

Such a funny car programe. This should be #1 because it's always entertaining. Which is more than what I can say for Lost. When it comes to T.V. forget J. J Abrams stick with Jeremy Clarkson

Top Gear doesn't need a script or actors, all it needs is 3 middle aged med having a laugh and talking about cars.

To be clear, Top Gear UK is the best, not the US version. I love this show

Joss' best effort in T.V. land by far shame it was short lived

This show sucks so much that it turns people into drunk retards.

20 My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a children's animated fantasy television series developed by Lauren Faust, produced by Hasbro Studios and DHX Media Vancouver . Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has also gained a large following of older viewers, mainly young and ...read more.

This show is surprisingly adult, with dark themes and good character development, I highly recommend it.

YES! Of course. A groundbreaking T.V. show of 2010 started a great decade. What else should I think of? - Neonco31

I was thinking of something.

THIS IS THE STUPIDEST SHOW EVER THE PERSON WHO PUT THIS ON HERE SHOULD GO WHAT THEY DID IN THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL STEP 1 GO ON TOP OF THE ROOF STEP TWO TAKE OFF ALL YOUR CLOTHES STEP THREE ACT LIKE A BALLERINA WHILE REPEATEDLY SLAPPING YOURSELF STEP FOUR GO THROUGH THE CHIMNEY - alazeemrasaq2005
