A television show is an entertainment medium broadcast for viewing on a television set, released as a series of episodes and usually divided into seasons. This list includes the top TV shows, which may have won awards, been critically acclaimed, or achieved high ratings.
The Top Ten
1 The Simpsons The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening that originally started on April 19, 1987 as shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show. It got its own series on December 17, 1989 and is still running as of 2021, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

This show is the greatest cartoon. You have some of the most iconic characters of all time. Homer and Bart specifically. Its jokes are funny, it is amazing. The Simpsons are the goat. This was the golden age of cartoons. It shows how Matt Groening tries his hardest. And it paid off. Without the Simpsons, we wouldn't see, Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, Futurama, South Park, Bob's Burgers, and King of the Hill. Good Job Simpsons.

What I like about this show it's because Seasons 1-10 are way better than Seasons 11-present in my opinion. The episodes are funny, the characters are hilarious and I loved a good concept about a family living in suburbia since 1989! While the first episode, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire" was a good start, all of the episodes from 1989 until mid-1999 were pretty good, but Season 11 is just mediocre at best.

Every character has yellow skin! How weird?
A family full of different traits:

Homer - oh, don't get me started. I could talk about him for ever how he always eats, sleeps, drinks, it is his circle of life I guess. Stupid guy, in a way that makes you laugh.

Marge - she does everything for Homer, she was actually kind of the smart one, but sometimes she can be a bit dumb. Cooks, cleans, washes, drives. Marge Simpson, the hard working mother that normally does everything.

Lisa - the smart one, figures out stuff, but sometimes, like Marge she can be STUPID! She loves her pet Snowball and wears. orange dress with a necklace around her neck.

Bart -stupid, lame, an idiot all the time, he is like his father. Well except the part were Homer eats a lot and sleeps. He is a troublesome boy. Farts, and makes pranks up he is always in trouble with the head of the school.

Maggie - the baby, she actually is the perfect one in the family, well, except the part ...more

I love this cartoon. This show is one of my all-time favorites. Even though most people think that the old Simpsons are better than the new, I actually love both the old and new. This show has great characters, great episodes, funny scenes, awesome references to movies and shows, and the rest of the things about it is just positively endless. I have started watching Simpsons when I was either the age of 9, 10, 11, or 12. I have watched it for a few years now. I still love this show at the age of 14, which is my age right now. Matt Groening is an awesome artist and is VERY good at drawing the characters, backgrounds, props, etc. Matt Groening, the creator of the show, has got to be one of my favorite artists of all-time. Besides loving the show, I also have some Simpsons Comics, The Simpsons Family History book, a few clothing items, and the complete forth season on DVD (I will get the rest of the complete seasons that are available, and I hope that Fox, the network that airs this ...more

2 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 20 years, and is beginning its 13th season. ...read more.

It's truly amazing. The comedy was/is fit for all ages, from little kids to something adults could enjoy. The unforgettable designs and behaviors of the character chemistry is unmatched, and the internet still goes pretty wild over some memes about it (and I mean like those small, funny jokes). There is always another classic comedy piece in this show waiting to be found, and will not be rivaled for years to come.

This is my childhood. I love Spongebob. It's funny, cool, and amazing. Spongebob of course is my favorite. It is a masterpiece. I love this show. I recommend this to everyone who loves it. Spongebob is truly the sweetest, funniest, cutest and most enthusiastic and spirited little sponge I've ever seen, Patrick is just the same for a starfish. Sandy is beyond intelligent and one tough mamma, Mr. Krabs may be cheap but I admire his trust in Spongebob when it comes to working.

SpongeBob Squarepants is the greatest TV show of all time. It is COMEDY GOLD. Sure, we saw a decrease in quality between the sixth and seventh season, but it went up immediately after that. People saying that Season 6-8 is garbage, are 1. WRONG and 2. Just being rude to the creators of the show as they put 10 months into making 1 eleven minute episode. Anyway, The entire show is amazing. Season 1-4 were incredible, Season 5 was great, Season 6-7 were good, Season 8-9 were great and the show is amazing right now, and it's on its 12TH SEASON. You're obviously not going to agree with me, but that's my opinion.

Ok, I'm like 1000% percent sure everyone on here has at least SEEN this show once when they were a kid. I love it, I still watch it today. Remember when they got all the celebrities on the Truth or square movie?

3 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.

Breaking Bad has everything you could possibly want in a show plus more. Every second of this masterpiece is absolutely brilliant. There's not a single bad performance by anyone. Breaking Bad has the greatest assemblage of characters I've ever seen, everyone is incredibly fascinating. Walter White is one of the finest and most complex characters ever created. The soundtrack must be mentioned as well, as Dave Porters score is mesmerizing and the great songs throughout the series are perfectly placed. I'm definitely going to watch it all over again. Breaking Bad is my religion!

Wow, that piece of garbage by the name of "Family Guy" is higher than this?

This show really knows how to write characters and a twisty plot. This show... Geez if I described in detail why it's so great, I'd write a bloody novel! Oh PLEASE do yourself a favor and watch this. Family Guy was never good to begin with. Seth MacFarlane just references stuff and expects you to laugh because somehow, if you reference something, it's automatically funny. Har har har. Gilligan on the other hand is an intelligent individual who incorporates moral themes and realistic character traits into his show. Also, Breaking Bad is UNPREDICTABLE. If you like The Walking Dead, The X-Files, or ANY crime drama, this show is for you. Even if you don't - this show might make crime dramas your obsession. PLEASE do yourself a favor and give it a watch. And if you still like the racist, sexist, unoriginal Simpsons rip-off that is Family Guy better, please get cultured.

For No. 5 this is still too low. The way this show is laid out and told is so wonderfully done. No show in the entire world has a group of writers better than Vince Gilligan and his team. They were able to perfectly have a beginning, middle, and an incredible ending to a series that will definitely have a spot in television history. And its not just the storyline, it's the incredible cast they have... There is no weak link that drags them all down, they are a ll wonderful especially Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul... Before this I wasn't a huge fan of drama television but this show was so perfectly done, that I can't help but fall in love with it.

The intensity of this show is just incredibly massive, from a end of a season you just cannot wait until the next season it will leave you thinking all day honestly, that's how good it is. Walter White the main character is a chemistry teacher and now he's this drug Meth dealer but, is really intelligent. If you love science specifically chemistry it will just add the icing on the cake for you I am a witness, trust me
. They even make up some of their own laws of chemistry, like how hydroflouric acid can eat through a bath tub but, really can't although it can eat through some metals. Also red phosphorus can't mix with hot water and he tells I'll teach you to cook crystal Meth but uses that false technique to cause some gas explosion. But, its great because from episode to episode is so good and it's so good they can make their own laws of chemistry.

4 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.

Game of Thrones is what happens when you choose a book that regular people would say "This isn't doable with T.V." Reasons? Cruelty, sex, morality + wit, fantasy, and drama?

And boy did HBO's gamble pay off. Game of Thrones is the most clever, atmospheric, and epic show out there. The cruelty, sex, and bad morals of some characters that you may find yourself rooting for actually works because of how quality everything is on the show! The acting is too real, I mean too real. I don't remember questioning one thing. The world of GoT, for lack of non-repetition, is too real as well for its fantasy elements. Ice zombies, dragons, real. Damn.

And since when did fantasy become for non-fantasy fans if its name isn't Lord of the Rings? Good work to every working person on the show who contributed.

Game of Thrones is BY FAR the greatest show of our time. It is simply the ultimate fantasy masterpiece, and it's only getting better.
My #2 choice would be South Park. The brilliant comedy is probably often overlooked as a raunchy gag fest, but it does an amazing job incorporating complex themes and social commentary, all while not taking itself too seriously.
Honorable mentions go to Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny, and the better seasons of Spongebob, Family Guy and the Big Bang Theory.
I cringed a little at seeing The Walking Dead placed above Game of Thrones. It's a decent show but so frustrating to be a fan of. It created a world of possibilities, but in stark contrast to GoT it fails miserably to explore them, sticking to dull, repetitive plotlines. TWD is full of unlikable characters, too bloody even for those who usually don't mind, and not above pissing off its fanbase with story arcs that skip 3 episodes on a cliffhanger.
I haven't seen enough of Breaking Bad to ...more

I was initially v.reluctant to watch this show despite being recommended by a few fellows. Once I had started however, I found myself absorbing more and more with every season.

Gradually, I realized the diversity in human nature, the frailty of life, the weakness in each and every character, the subtle good in the bad characters, the suffering of proud, the mourning of failed and more importantly the courage in the underdogs.

Breathtakingly Amazing! you'll find the characters you root for dying before your eyes until you will lose the hope in the restoration of Righteousness only to find it again, in someone, in something : )

A magnificent and spellbinding show that is always intriguing. The atmosphere and tension it manages to create throughout each episode is superb. Fascinating characters, epic music, gorgeous cinematography, stunning action. great story and character developments... yeah, basically everything about Game of Thrones is excellent. Once all seasons are out I'm gonna watch it all over again, 'cause its that amazing and I love this show so much. Along with Breaking Bad, this is at the top of the best shows to come out in a long time. Masterpiece!

5 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 (Fat, Idiotic Dad) and Lois (Nagging Bitchy Wife), their children Meg (Socially Awkward Daughter) Chris (Fat, Idiotic ...read more.

Family Guy will always be one of the best shows ever made. This show has impacted me like no other show, and it is up there with other amazing shows such as Simpsons, Rick and Morty, American Dad, Robot Chicken, South Park,etc. Some moments can be so random and I love it. It also never takes itself seriously and is self aware, and there's some episodes with no cutaways as well, and some episodes with very emotional moments. The fact that when Brian died for 2 episodes made news headlines is proof that Family Guy has impacted our world and has become forever iconic. The show can improve, like use less cutaway gags and references all the time, maybe make the characters a little less sociopathic and bring back some of their charm, and don't try to be any other show, be their own show. I always laugh at Family Guy on a bad day and I can't thank Seth MacFarlane and the family guy team enough.Is it worth being one of the most iconic cartoons of all time? YEESSSS

Thank you, Family Guy

Family Guy is the best show ever. Although it has faced a lot of criticism for its content and humor. I can never be ignored as the best T.V. show of all time. It blends satirical and sitcom comedies which makes a great combination. It also has Stewie Griffin the best character ever in television history. It is the only animated show to be nominated for an Emmy For Outstanding Comedy Series along with live action real comedies. It is popular among everybody, hilarious to watch, and recognized as the best T.V. show of all-time. It is about the Griffins a dysfunctional family. Consisting of: loveable idiot Peter, hot wife Lois, hated daughter Meg, fat stupid son Chris, diabolical geniuses baby Stewie, and sophisticated alcoholic talking dog Brian. They have many misadventures together or individual. Please Vote for this show it is a superb satirical sitcom. If you have not seen it watch and you will instantly fall in love. This is the best and perfect T.V. show of all time!

I have been watching Family Guy since the age of either 9, 10, 11, or 12. I am now 14 years old and Family Guy is one of my all-time favorite shows for myself. Family Guy is similar to The Simpsons, but more inappropriate humor and a more different family. The characters are hilarious, especially Peter Griffin (who's awesome and funny). The episodes are very funny, too. The cutaway gag is a very original idea for this awesome show, though, and the cutaway gags are VERY hilarious to me. The gag where either Peter or another character abuses Meg is really hilarious, too, because Meg is just a unique and different person, whereas everyone else, especially Peter, dislikes her and always abuses her, which is really funny to me. The rest of the things about this show is endlessly awesome. Seth MacFarlane, the creator, does an amazing job drawing the characters, backgrounds, etc. I really love Seth MacFaralne's artwork in this show, because his drawings of the characters are very unique and ...more

What do you expect! Its family guy. This show is just flat out amazing. Seth has made a masterpiece. Peter is a fat, loveable, man who always is just hilarious, stewie is just an absolute genius, lois is and amazing character, meg is just meg, chris is just relatable, Brian is the funniest dog. Seasons one to 11 were iconic. Tbh it's better than the simpsons

6 South Park South Park is an American adult animated sitcom created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the Comedy Central television network. The show is about four boys, who are Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman, and Kenny McCormick, and their adventures in South Park, Colorado.

LOVE THIS SHOW! I hated when 200 and 201 got banned, but we all know why it happened, and hated when Chef died, since he was a good character. I thought Cartman was funny, yet aggresive most of the time, and Kenny, a lovable boy who keeps on getting killed. I thought Cthuhlu being in the show was a great choice. a lot of funny scenes made me laugh, like in the movie when Bill Gates told the general that the new software and got shot (don't ask). Sometimes I think some of the jokes kinda cross the line, like that puzzle Randy did, and said the word BLEEP out loud, and Chef's death! This show should go on for the years to come,

I will say that nothing beats the first seasons and like the simpsons it isn't as funny as it used to be. I will also say that out of my generation matt and trey are without a doubt the most clever and creative writers in television. This show is brilliant and beautiful. Even though the show isn't as good as it used to be I truly hope that this show never goes off the air like the simpsons. I still do love the new episodes, but you can't compete with the earlier seasons and in my opinion no show ever will.

Worst Show Ever! I'm sorry to all the people that love this show. But I hate it. I've watched like 10 minutes of it in my entire life because my cousins watch it and I'm at their house all the time. It's so inappropriate. I heard so much swearing and other unGodly things. I'm a devoted Christian teenager and I get very annoyed when people want to watch this show. Tip for you: Never watch this show, especially if you are just a kid who doesn't know where babies come from. You do not want to learn it by this show.

Why is this at number 8? it should be higher! PLUS south park's plot is creative, and that's what I like, a creative plot, its like after you watched one Episode of SP, you are hyped, wanting to watch more, Friends shouldn't be higher than south park, who made this list!? My favorite episode has to be, "Christmas in Canada? " where (Spoilers)

Ike gets taken away from Kyle, From his ACTUAL PARENTS (Not Shelia and Gerald) And Kyle, Stan, Cartman, and Kenny fly to Canada to get Ike back, well Kenny gets killed when the Prime Minister Shoots lazers straight at Kenny, Blowing him up.

7 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 honestly think this is one of the most overrated shows out there (then again, zombies in general just doesn't appeal to me). Another thing I want to address is that while the show started strong, ever since mid-Season 5, it's kept getting worse and worse over the years with each season plus I feel like the franchise it's comic book source material stems from is milked by AMC for all it's worth. At this point, while it's not as severe as The Simpsons or Family Guy, I want The Walking Dead to end ASAP. At least the comic book's run has ended, so it's overall conclusion isn't too far off, I think.

Also, Carl's death was one of the biggest pieces of BS I've ever seen on television.

What got me into the show? The characters are just real people fighting for survival in all the ways you've seen before, and yet NONE of them are completely safe. One minute, they can be smiling over finding a can of food, the next they get bit or they get kidnapped or they get into a shoot out with bandits or anything else that could go wrong. Add awesome zombies, great acting, great effects, great writing, one of the best scores in all of history, likable actors portraying lovable characters you find yourself learning from, favoring, and even identifying with, and you have the greatest T.V. show ever made, based off a comic book or not.

I don't care how much dislikes I get, I'm going to say my opinion. This show is good, but it doesn't deserve to be anywhere near the top ten. First off, it's predictable. All they really do is have non-important characters killed off every once and a while, and have several zombie attacks. Not to mention, that they normally center an episode off the character they kill right before his/her death. Second off, season 5 was horrible. It had much more talking than actually zombies, which the show is supposed to be about. Season 6 redeemed the show, but still. So to conclude my thoughts, I like this show, but it isn't that good.

The Walking Dead is not about something zombie-cliche where you need to find out who made that apocalypse up. You have to face seeing your characters get attacked by such men. You can see in the future that Carl or Rick might fall in danger or Maggie dying of birth or Glenn getting hurt and fracture his skull. You can see also sad scenes like you might think that Maggie and Beth's father getting beheaded orBeth dying in a hospital.
The Walking Dead is a masterpiece. You will not regret watching this because there are more episodes to come and you will regret not watching this also. From 2011- 20__, The show running in the front eyes of the fans and people is true. No going back.

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

Now I may not exactly be an expert TV/film critic but The Office is most definitely one of the best comedies out there likely the best. It's also one of the best shows ever made. I have to give props to the original The Office in the UK but the US adaptation is better (considering it had more seasons). This show is genuinely funny and smart. This documentary-like the style they went for absolutely works, everyone kills their roles, and it all feels very real. This level of realism in a show is nearly unmatched. Did I also mention this show is absolutely hilarious? Jim's pranks on Dwight, Kevin doing Kevin things, just the comedic timing is impeccable. Although this show is mostly a comedy, this show can blend in with many other genres as well like drama. Most of all, it is so rewatchable and I have no idea why anyone would not like this show or at least appreciate the work put into it.

It's just the best show ever. Best characters, best jokes, best lines, best plots. It's simply just that everything about it is awesome and fantastic. It's clearly the best and I don't know how it only has 1% of the votes here. Watch it people! It's amazing! Most people underestimate it because you have to be a true fan to really fully enjoy it, because you have to know the backstories, but if one were to pick it up late on the bandwagon, then watch every episode from season 1 to 9, they'd love it. Unless you don't like the humor entirely, it's just the best T.V. show ever.

This is a groundbreaking and revolutionary comedy. Not only is it a joy to watch, but it became influential to modern TV. That's why it's one of the best shows ever

"People say I am the best boss"

He is right!

The office is a really great show it makes me laugh and it is a great show it came a long way with a very most great popular actor Steve Carell

9 Friends Friends is an American television sitcom, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which originally aired on NBC from September 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004, lasting ten seasons. It now airs on Nick at Nite. ...read more.

Whenever I feel low, this is the only serial I watch, and it really lifts my spirits.
I grew up watching these friends, almost like my next door neighbors.
I feel I am part of them and they are a part of my life, whenever they come into my living room.
I can't stop smiling even now after watching all the episodes 'n' number of times.
They are like a ray of sunshine in my dark cloudy days.
Thank you Rachael, Phoebe, Monica, Ross, Joey, Chandler, not necessarily in that order, for being my best friends through the years.
I have laughed and cried along with you.
That is why my choice of the best serial goes to FRIENDS

This show is magical. It's been a while since it ended, but it kinda melts your heart every single time you watch it. It's got the best cast. More importantly, you learn a lot from this show. It's absolutely not inappropriate, if taken in the right sense. It's easily the greatest show ever. Ross and Rachel totally spice it up. To sum it up, this show has the capability to change the way you go about life in a very unconventional, emotional and of course in a funny, entertaining way.

Friends is by far the best show ever, it's up with the classics like I Love Lucy & Bewitched as well as modern shows like The Big Bang Theory - all of those are great, but FRIENDS BEATS THEM ALL! The wonderful acting, excellent humour, well constructed storylines and feel-good nature of the show makes people watching it. As far as I know it's one of only 4 shows never to fall from the Nielsen Top 10 & the others (I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show & The Lucy Show) are all from the 50's & 60's when there wasn't so many channels to compete with. Well done Friends!

Also, how can animated crap like The Simpsons & Family Guy surpass this> I love how the person above says some people don't like Family Guy because they prefer more structured humour like South Park? - you NEED to watch more LIVE ACTION and stay away from animated shows. Grow up.

Friends should be on the top... The first best television show... It's been 8 years now since it has got over and still, it is missed and watched and re-watched by everyone. Because everyone remembers those six friends, Rachel Greene, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Ross Geller. These six are the only six. Their comedy, fun, silliness, stupidity, friendship, will always be remembered. HATS OFF GUYS, HATS OFF!

10 Avatar: The Last Airbender Avatar: The Last Airbender is an American animated television series that aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008. Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese ...read more.

It's a really good series, it's almost perfect, it has an amazing balance in everything it talks about. It presents you the characters as humans, both (villains and protagonists) kind of characters have their good and bad part, both of them have their own story and they are all connected between them. All of them have a great development in the show.

Other thing that is amazing is that, still it's a "kids show", if you are 95 years old you can still watch it and enjoy and learn from it. It doesn't matter the age, you are gonna cry, get upset, be happy or worried of the characters because you feel them like humans, so you understand them and feel their emotions and how they feel.

Also I must say that the show show us in a really good way critical themes such like toxic family, death and war, revenge, redemption, genocide, the cycle of the war, psychopathic behaviors, etc. But it still shows us love, friendship, forgiveness and a lot of tips and positive learnings from the ...more

Look. You can sit here and tell me that friends, or Family Guy are better than ATLA but in my opinion they're just not. The utter QUALITY in ATLA that is maintained throughout the show is incredible! It's well written, well acted, well animated, well everything. It's a perfectly incredible compact story that I have problems finding flaws with.

*SPOILERS AHEAD YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*
I've seen many lists of best TV shows of all time, and so far, this website gives ATLA the highest ranking it has had at #12. However, I feel like it could be higher and many other shows could be lower. Shows like Simpsons, Family Guy, and SpongeBob are very iconic but eventually age caught up to the shows and they started deteriorating in quality. In my opinion, some shows such as Game Of Thrones and How I Met Your Mother are good... but their quality is very inconsistent. To me, shows like Stranger Things, Mandalorian, and Walking Dead may be a bit overhyped (these shows were good but just didn't make me go "WOAH BEST TV SHOW EVER"). Avatar The Last Airbender however, is not any of these categories. This show is very iconic, their quality remains very consistent, it appeals to all audiences, it's endlessly rewatchable, and this show has been left under the radar until recently. I'm glad it is getting more recognition this is by far my ...more

It's hard to explain it all in one comment, but the show is well balanced in everything. Great animation, epic music, awesome actions, well-developed characters, amazing actors and actresses, et cetera. Though what's nice is the fact that the show can balance out serious moments and funny moments, and it's not at all inappropriate or so kid-friendly that it's corny. Also the show touches on concepts that most kid's shows wouldn't even think about and yet they explain it in a way that kids won't be completely bored by it. Either way everything about the show is perfect and has obvious effort and pure optimism put into it. Both adults and children can find something to enjoy in this beautiful masterpiece of a show. Avatar: The Last Airbender is a one of a kind show and honestly I don't know if anything else will ever be like it. So for me it is my favorite show of all time, for others maybe not but my experience with the show has been completely positive. Rating: Infinity points/10.

11 Gravity Falls Gravity Falls is an American animated television series produced by Disney Television Animation that first aired on Disney Channel, and then on Disney XD from June 15, 2012 to February 15, 2016. The series follows the adventures of Dipper Pines and his twin sister Mabel in the fictional town of Gravity ...read more.

I love Friends, but all in all, Gravity Falls is undeniably my favorite show. I love it for so many reasons, so I'll just touch on a few. First of all, it has balance. It has mystery & the supernatural like the X-Files or Twin Peaks, but it also has humor like The Simpsons or Friends. It has outstanding character development, and every character has more than one side. The series-long love story (as all T.V. shows have) is actually interesting. (Blendin's Game! ) Dipper and Mabel have an awesome sibling relationship. They care about each other a lot, but also fight sometimes. The main cast has great chemistry with each other. There are countless outside references, making it a show for kids and adults. The humor is clever and mature, not random, gross, dorky, or childish. The graphics are unique but cool. Every episode works both on its own and as part of the series. The plots are well developed, and cleverly resolved, not solved deus ex machina. The episodes are thirty minutes, which ...more

This show is SO good. It needs to be in the Top 10. It appeals to both adults and kids, and has humor for all. Let me remind you that this is a kids show. A Disney Channel show at that. It has action, adventure, romance, suspense, humor and everything else you could need. The villains are amazing, especially Bill Cipher (who I will not reveal too much about due to spoilers). The show centers around Dipper and Mabel, two twelve year old twins who are sent to Gravity Falls to live with their Great uncle (Gruncle) Stan. Gruncle Stan owns the Mystery Shack, a locally-famous tourist trap. Two of the employees are Soos (dumb and lovable handyman) and Wendy (carefree and chill cashier, also Dipper's crush). Dipper goes into the woods and finds a mystical journal talking about the supernatural happenings of Gravity Falls. Only question, who wrote the journal? That is the recurring mystery as Dipper and Mabel try to discover his identity while experiencing the weirdness. Does this description ...more

This show does so many things perfectly and almost nothing wrong. On top of that, there are tons of secrets to keep you thinking long after the finale

I watched every episode and enjoyed. The story was a pure artwork and I appreciated team dedication in bringingthis to life.

12 Seinfeld Four single friends -- comic Jerry Seinfeld, bungling George Costanza, frustrated working gal Elaine Benes and eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer -- deal with the absurdities of everyday life in New York City.

Changed my opinion of "ALL SITCOMS ARE S***"... It opened my mind to many other shows. Man, every character, Jerry, Kramer, George and Elaine, they're all so unique in their own way, and the fact the show is about the trivial and miscellaneous it's so AAH, can only explain with the laughter watching this show! I fell of the couch laughing about Jerry and George's story about "Art Vandelay"...

I am 17 and Seinfeld is my favorite T.V. show. My favorite character is Kramer. I could watch this show all day and all night. Every time I watch I get a great laugh. This is a show that I enjoy that my parents enjoy as well. So much better than cheers, the wonder years, Frasier, friends, or modern family.

Should be in the top 3! How is it possible that a stupid show like " Friends " is ranked higher than this show? The best jokes and funny situations were on this show and certainly not in " Friends ". At least they didn't ranked it lower than the " Big bang theory ". That would be really ridiculous.

For a show about nothing, Seinfeld takes the cake when it comes to comedy and casting. No show has left an impression on T.V. such as this one, and its final episode ended the series perfectly. Kramer, along with his long - lasting feud with Feldman, will forever remain immortal, both in our hearts, and in our DVR.

13 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.

Honestly, this show is on the same level as the one from extras (a much better, funnier show.) There is the constant bombardment of catchphrases (bazinga? Jesus Christ) It claims to have smart characters, but they are constantly doing stupid things which is not only contradicting what their characters are meant to be like, but makes nerds, geeks etc look like complete morons. As I said, it stupid, boring and so, so annoying.
Basically just crap.

This show just mocks nerd culture. Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard are just typical nerds as caricatured by typical non-nerds (want proof that these characters reflect an outsider's perspective? "I got used to 3 new doctor whos"), and Penny is just a pair of boobs with no personality except her repeated use of dull sarcasm. Rather than a laugh track, the show should have sounds of lecherous slobbering and repeated utterance of "what a nerd".

Hilarious. I remember watching it the first time and nearly splitting a rib! I couldn't believe it because before, no other comedy had actually made me laugh. The entertainment wasn't ever that funny! But this show did it for me. Then I binged the show over and over and over again and now I've seen every episode like, five times. Haha, I don't know if that's healthy or not =P

The Big Bang Theory must have some sort of force field around it that alters the laws of social hierarchy. While nerds are ridiculed in other situations by the general populace, they are found entertaining in the case of this show. Being a nerd myself, I find it great that there is a show which require a certain degree of scientific savviness to understand.

14 Stranger Things Stranger Things is an American science fiction-horror Netflix original television series created, written, directed and co-executive produced by the Duffer Brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer, as well as co-executive-produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.

Stranger Things by far is the best TV show on Netflix...honestly the cast couldn't be more perfect and I'm currently watching it AGAIN, to be more specific, the 23rd time! I love the mix of romance, horror, and comedy and I love how realistic the 80s feel is...kudos to the Duffer Brothers for creating such a beautiful and well thought out show, can't wait for season 4

This is one of the only T.V. shows that I couldn't just get enough of. I finished the entire season 1 in about a week, and now I am just patiently waiting for season 2... The horror-vibe, characters, and story line were simply amazing. There were actual plot twists, and I felt sympathy for the characters. Even for Steve, for some odd reason. The characters were made perfectly and still having mysteries tied to them. What is Eleven's backstory? What's going to happen to Will now? How about Hopper? Hopefully, these questions will be answered in the next season. There were plenty of funny moments, like when Eleven was about to change in front of the boys or when Lucas spit into Dustin's hand to demonstrate a spit shake, and Dustin just looked at his hand confused and possibly disgusted. Definitely one of my favorite shows, and I hope season 2 will be just as wonderful as the first.

The best binge-watching show ever, but that's not all this series has. It is more interesting, has better characters, a better plot, and cooler everything than 6 of the top ten TV shows, some of which are just terrible. South park is like an enormous camel turd someone put into your trash, and even family guy looks like a creative and thoughtful show compared to sponge bob.

Stranger things is a flawless TV show. It really is just amazing. A perfect mix of mystery, horror, romance, action, comedy, and all around awesomeness. This is the show that deserves your vote, just as inception deserves your vote for best movies

15 Regular Show Regular Show is an American animated television series created by J. G. Quintel for Cartoon Network that premiered on September 6, 2010. The series revolves around the lives of two friends, a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby—both employed as groundskeepers at a local park.

My favorite show of all time. Other than seasons 3 and 5, which season 3 had some of the absolute worst episodes in the show and had good episodes that weren't even that good for this show's standards, and season 5 was very forgettable for the most part, the entire show was always top quality up until the very. last. episode. The plots were always at least somewhat original to the show, even in the episodes with similar plots. There was nothing regular about this show, in fact it's probably the most unique show that I have ever watched and I also love it for that reason. Other than Margret and C.J, I adored all of the characters and the way each one acted. There were some other very small problems in the show, such as seasons 1 and 2, as well as the first episode of season 3 having very choppy animation, but overall I can't forgive this show enough for even existing, it's just that good.

I just love Mordecai and Rigby insane adventures during every animated episode that show had.
Finale was epic and heartbreaking.

It's an amazing show, or I mean it was. The first 5 seasons were good, but they jumped the shark and the episodes are terrible now. Like that episode where Mordecai and Rigby took care of Benson's pet pig and it turned out the pig was working with some old criminal guy!? They could've made an episode called "We Jumped the Shark". That would've been LESS obvious.

This is better that SpongeBob! Don't get me wrong, SpongeBob is Great! But this is funnier, and it's actually a little bit realistic in a way if you think about it! They hate their Job! Sponge do sent hate his Job! That is not normal!

16 Adventure Time Adventure Time is an American animated television series created by Pendleton Ward for Cartoon Network. The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape ...read more.

Finn and Jake were the perfect duo against villans from OOO realm.
From misunderstood Simon (Ice King) to well destructive Lich (Sweet P) and evil entity called GOLB.
Was just amaizing and if I watch it now sure I will get nostalgic.

Adventure time come on grab your friends were going to a very distant land , jake the dog and finn the human the fun will never end its adventure time! Love this show , Tis the best .

A truly bizzare adventure, packed with not just fun and giggles, but dark and emotional matters as well. It keeps the show going with it's interesting and varied characters, from the friendliest to the calm and dangerous ones. The post-apocalyptic theme doesn't keep me away from it.

33?! THIRTY-THREE?! This wacky, hilarious but still complex, deep, heartwarming show is the best cartoon ever made. This series keeps on unfolding, the characters get older, and although some people may find it 'weird', never judge a book by it's cover! This KID'S cartoon can make adults laugh and cry. Although I'm only 10, I've watched almost every episode, know the whole backstory of this land and know that THIS IS THE BEST CARTOON EVER! It at least deserves to be in top 5.

17 Doctor Who Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. ...read more.

The best, most detailed show in the history of television. It has so many qualities other shows have failed to meet. It has amazing actors and actresses, the show breaks boundaries by including so many different people. The show shows that being gay is okay, it embraces variety, and tells you it's okay to be who you are, no one will judge. Doctor Who embraces everything, that's why I and so many other people just adore it. With new and old faces, lesbian lizard woman, evil yelling salt shakers, fat, and Captain Jack Harkness' pickup lines, there's nothing to hate about this show. Sci-Fi, Horror, Action, Adventure, Historical Fiction, Drama, Romance, Doctor Who has it all. Consider watching Doctor Who, the best show in all the universes.

Doctor Who is so big, you couldn't fit the universe inside! This ensures that Doctor Who remains one of the greatest television shows of all time and it still grows to this day! Who of most British Actors hasn't been in Doctor Who over its wonderful 50 years! Every episode is a new adventure, and yet everything somehow links together in the end! If you don't believe me, watch all 800 episodes, read all 2,000 novels, listen to all 1,500 audio stories, examine all 10,000 comic stories and most of all, be a part of the biggest television fan base on the planet! You may change your mind...

I am 63 years young and believe it or not I came into the fandom very late, having started with Tennant. I have been lucky enough to have met him 2x and quite a few of the others. True story; I went to Awesome Con a few years back in Washington DC (I live in Arizona and flew there with my 23 year old son) just to meet him. I waited in a HUGE line to buy a ticket for the autograph portion but I was short $75 and they didn't take credit cards! A fan standing there gave the lady at the table $50 in cash so that I could at least get a picture signed. That was AMAZING but I had something in particular I wanted him to sign which was another $25. The lady at the table, also a Whovian was so moved by what the first fan had done that she just gave me the more expensive ticket! Then we were about...oh...300th or so people in line and my son who has autism was getting really tired so I went up to one of the guards working Tennants table and he moved myself and my son right up to next in line! ...more

My favourite personally. It's been a part of my life for years now, and while it has faded (in my opinion) of overall performance in the later series, it remains a fantastic show for anyone to view. The lore and universe are staggering, the characters, acting and script are undeniably unforgettable, the show has A LOT to see and the soundtrack...oh my god. Oh, and the show is unique and fresh, as well as every storyline it coughs up. I'll never forget this T.V. Show ever, and I think it deserves to the honoured, as the greatest T.V. Show of all time, ground-breaking and iconic.

18 Futurama Futurama is an American animated science fiction sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

I like Futurama but its not better than The Simpsons.
It was not going to last as long as The Simpsons.
this was a parody of sci-fi shows and in the year 3000.
If the year 3000 ever happens then do you think it would be like Futurama even though we wouldn't know unless there would be a time machine invented to see the future.
Do you want to drink some slurm?
Anyway I'd prefer Busted with the underwater.

I sorry but it is just a copy of simpsons and it is not funny. Bender and zoidberg are the only good thing of the show and is much sentmentalist. who talk that this is better than simpsons do not know what is a good T.V. show. the characters do not have history if the simpsons is so bad why the T.V. show has not cancelled after 25 years south park, family guy and the simpsons are the only good T.V. shows.

This show had so much potential and needs to be brought back the comedy was perfect there were so many interesting characters that couldve had whole episodes about them.

I could see it being #1 if there was only the five seasons (and maybe the movies), but the last seasons ruined it. It should still be top 10 nonetheless.

19 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.

After thinking about the question for a while, I have to conclude that LOST is the best television series to ever air. It's just incredibly well written and thought-out. It can get confusing, especially in season 5, but that's one of the great things about it. It's intelligent because that's how the story happened to turn out, not because it had to be or wanted to be. I will forever regret not watching it until five years after it finished.

Now, how the hell is it that the likes of Family Guy, South Park, even the Simpsons are higher than this? I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not even that is an appropriate excuse for something as grotesque as this.

GET LOST!

I absolutley LOVE LOST! It's so exciting and it always keeps you at the edge of your seat! This should be like at least number 5 on the list. It's a classic and all genres are on the show, they have it all, action, drama, adventure, romance, comedy, humor, mystery, and sometimes a bit of horror but not the real haunting horror, just mild. It's perfect for family veiwing or with your friends or even just alone. My favorites are Jack and Kate. I hate Sawyer, stupid hobo- monkey! Watch it, it's honestly mind squeezing, it makes you think hard to find a theory. It's also truly for smart people too! All lost fans are smart, that's why they understand it and love it! You will to!

Lost is the best show on earth. Period. It is amazing. It always keeps you wanting more and more and it is so interesting. It's my favorite show ever. I wish there wasn't so many haters out there complaining about the end and how it didn't reveal answers but I think it's meant to be like that. It's the perfect ending. It makes you continue to think about the whole thing itself because the end is confusing but I like that. I will be rewatching it many many times. Its emotional, action packed, mystery, and romance. It has it all. And there will never be a show made that is better than lost. Best show ever

This show is an absolute masterpiece. Currently rewatching the entire series for a third time and still noticing so many things I didn't pick up on the first or second time round. The actors, the writing, the music, the characters and the storylines �" it's all so cleverly thought out. Originally, I stopped watching after the first few episodes because I didn't understand it and didn't have the patience to wait for the answers, but a friend convinced me to watch it all the way through and I'm so glad that they did! Totally mind blowing. There's no other show like it.

20 Supernatural This haunting series follows the thrilling yet terrifying journeys of Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers who face an increasingly sinister landscape as they hunt monsters. After losing their mother to a supernatural force, the brothers were raised by their father as soldiers who track mysterious ...read more.

I will live and die with this show. Not just the show us amazing but so are the conventions, the actors are so involved with their fandom and charity. Real life angels, every single one of them. And the fandom is warm and welcoming. The actors make sure to use the fandom for good causes and they do so much for us. The story for once is not about the standard romance but about love in every sense of the word. Family don't end with blood. Always keep fighting. You are not alone.

You'll fall in love with every one in this show, including villains, like Lucifer and Crowley. And why is it the best show ever? Because Sam and Dean have a chemistry better than any other couple that ever lived. I promise. Sam and Dean. They are the reason this show is sooo good. The actors are amazing people in real life too, and that reflects in the show too. The directors are genius! The music in the show is bound to make your taste in music better. You'll fall in love with every single thing about the show. The impala, Sam's puppy eyes, Dean's pie, his burger, our cute robo Cas. And you'll be so emotionally attached to them, you won't be able to leave them, because they are your family. That's why SPN is a family.

It's one of those shows where you never get bored with the story line and you feel such a connection with the characters wither it's on a large or small scale. It's made me cry and laugh all in one episode. This show doesn't get as much attention as it should and it's actors are the best I have ever seen. They are totally in sync with their characters and can relate with them and they can connect with the audience. This show in my opinion is the BEST SHOW EVER! And I don't want it to end.

The Simpsons is a legacy. Family Guy and The Office had its time. Breaking Bad was short-lived, yet amazing. The Walking Dead is the hit series of today. In my opinion, Supernatural is the best. A somewhat recurring storyline, but clever enough to make filler episodes that the fans love, and pop culture references that aren't out of place in a drama. People complain about it not ending after Season 5 (which it could have), but I think these later seasons only add to its glory.

21 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.

Okay I agree all the other shows are excellent but trust me How I Met Your Mother is the best amongst all & it's because it has everything comedy, romance, friendship, love lessons, life lessons, philosophy, etc.
It teaches you how to live your life & how to deal with your life!
It has taught me a lot in this 9 seasons of How I Met Your Mother.
I've watched the whole series like more then 5 times but, still if you ask me whether I feel bored to watch the same thing again, my answer will be NO!

Watch it & you'll understand the greatness of this sitcom!

Hands down the best T.V. show ever. From its comedic casting to its awesome portrayal of characters and flashbacks, they really put a great deal of effort to make you feel like part of the gang. I really like the balance between making you laugh and having sympathy for the characters. Only hitch is the ending, though they were hinting it since the very start.

How I Met Your Mother is THE show.
It is reletable, it is funny, it is sentimental.
It has great character development which is isomething rare in sitcoms.
All the series fit perfectly with each other: there are wonderful running gags amd there are plot-related details that can get analyzed seasons later, and I love it!
I think it's wonderful both if you search for a show with a great meaning or just for a funny-one.
I really think it should be higher! U-U

I used to love the show while it was airing and I'm pretty sure I'll remember some of the jokes and the characters for many many years...the only major disappointment was the ending...it soured my enjoyment of the show so much I'd rather pretend the alternate ending that's on YouTube is the real one.

22 Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets. It was first broadcast in Japan on April 1, 1997, in the United States ...read more.

Never forget why I love this show which is why I'm in part of the fandom. I am a huge Pokemon fangirl. Some of the episodes are so emotional and it brings back to my childhood memories when I first watch it when I was a kid. The battles throughout the anime are awesome. The XYZ and Sun and Moon series are personally my favorites seasons so far.

And not only that, the best Pokemon character that ever to be seen in episodes is Sawyer, who is cute, adorable and handsome!

I haven't seen XY yet Black and White was good but the show seems to be going downhill (Not as much as people say though because the show is still awesome). The first three seasons however, their amazing and matched only by Dragonnball and Onepiece in anime and the best series is the third: Diamond and Pearl.
If you haven't seen this you have no childhood.

Why is the new getting hate? The old ones have deleted inappropriate content and Ash is bigger of a whiny brat than Caillou, by the way one of the old episodes gave people seizures!

It was better when it was old, then it got bad. The new ones include:
Bad humour
Poor storylines
Things that unnecessarily pop out
I think there are more but I don't watch it anymore.

23 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Why aren't more people voting for this? It's the best show ever!

Well, to be fair, you have to a high IQ to understand it so maybe that's why not many vote for it (JK it's a joke)

Rick and morty is just a blast of adult animated comedy sci fi thrown in our faces. And it's awesome. The characters are just funny, rick is just and amazing grandfather and scientist. Morty is just an funny enjoyable, character to watch. Definitely recommend this show

Rick is awesome. Not only is he an awesome scientist, but he will NEVER let anyone get away with hurting his family (i.e., when Morty was nearly raped). I'll admit that there are lots of cartoons on this list that I like (especially SpongeBob), but this cartoon is something else because it's not like these other cartoons where you just watch and understand it. For example, Rick's catchphrase is a reference to some Russian novel, if I remember correctly. There is a quite nihilistic philosophy in this show. The way Mr. Jellybean, who nearly raped Morty, was honored, is a metaphor for how we refuse to look at the bad sides of historical figures. Not to mention, I can relate to Morty at times. The Citadel episode was interesting as well. It is honestly interesting to see the Ricks and Mortys from other dimensions. - SoongeBill.

This is actually dumb. This is one of the best THINGS I have ever seen. People don't know what they're doing.

24 American Dad American Dad! is an American adult animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker, and Matt Weitzman for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

Like any adult animated comedy it can be a real pick and mix bag. If you decide to marathon a show like this expect to notice significant shifts in both quality and themes between seasons. Of all the adult animated family sitcoms though, this is the one I have least often found boring, disgusting, or abhorrent. Let's not dance around the issue; those kinds of moments come with the genre. American Dad is the one I've seen get the most visible effort put into it, to the point it does have real changes in the status quo that span seasons sometimes, and (while silly) plotlines that can span over multiple episodes. It creates a bit of intrigue when they pop up, but you know it's pretty much all a massive joke anyways.

Last time I watched this show was about a year ago, and it still felt like it had people who cared about the show and characters working on it. When a show manages to get over 10 seasons and has that sort of dedication it's worth a look.

There is more characters that are funny than Family Guy also the show doesn't try so hard because they do not have to show a cringe worthy flashback every 5 seconds that is starting to become boring and not laughable.

Upgraded version of "Family guy". more intelligent (no fart jokes)
Quality plots, and quality humor. some chapters are a bit sinister, or macabre, but most are fine.

American dad should be like 15th I don't like the brand new episodes they suck!

25 Batman: The Animated Series Batman: The Animated Series is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero Batman.

I'm sorry, but how on God's earth is My little pony higher than this? I mean you simply cannot make a list of the top best T.V. shows ever and not put this in the top ten. It should at least be in the top five, not at 93 with with My little pony 3 spaces ahead of it!

Batman s wish to bring justice, no matter what costs it had, was deffinition of what I adore.
This show for me will never die.

A true legend. It definitely deserves the number one spot. So dark for a children's show.

This is by far one of the Best Cartoons ever made back in the day.
