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.

Arguably the television ever made. The Wire is a close second. Bryan Cranston's performance is the best I've seen on any television program. Great story, characters and suspense. Simply magnificent. - afex

Really? This or The Wire or Sopranos is not first? That's a joke of a list. Six Feet Under should be higher as well. - djc20

Best show ever. No question. Heisenberg for president.

Best T.V. show ever - BenFerris

2 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.

This show is insanely addictive. Each character has their own interesting background. The island contains so many unexpected mysteries yet to be discovered. I would definitely recommend this show, it should be #1.

Most epic show of all time! Amazing cast, insane twists you would never expect and lovable characters who all have an amazing story. This show is a must watch! 11 should be on top

3 House

Witty and smart using a Brit to play an American in a reworking of the Sherlock Holmes character. The fact they can keep an obnoxious and unlikeable character fresh season after season says so much about the writers, directors and Hugh Laurie. In real life this "doctor" would have been fired. - mgenet

If your life's no more important than anyone else's, sign your donor card and kill yourself.

One of the greatest T.V. shows ever... Driven by its content and powerful acting performances...

Watch this show in night,after a day of hardships you faced and believe me when I say it,after watching this show,that 1 hour of show will be the happiest and most energetic 1 hour of each day of your life. This show will make you happy,sad,philosophical,anxious,etc in same 1 hour. That opening theme will play even in your last memory,at your deathbed and before every single sleep. Stop wasting time and just try this beautiful piece of art. LOVE YOU FOREVER House M.D.

This show should be #1. It has a lot of drama and we get to see each character develop and overcome their problems. The most amazing and unexpected events occur. We also get to see the relationships formed and the doctor-patient interactions. Best medical drama yet.

The Contenders

Best show I have ever watched. people think its for only teen girls just because the characters are in high school. that isn't true, because its not the age of the characters that matters, it's the amazing mysterious story line.

Best show I have ever seen! You literally cannot stop watching!
