Top 10 Best TV Shows

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 2020, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer more.

The Simpsons is such a timeless classic. Season 1-8 were quotable, funny, and brilliant in every aspect. Even though the show dipped in quality over the years, it's still one of the most recognizable and respected TV show in history.

That Bri loves Psy person is probably just a 5 year old who only laughs and weirdness and swearing this is definitely the best show ever. The older ones are better but the new ones are still amazing! I mean SpongeBob was good but the new ones are basically a character tripping over a bench. This has been amazing for 30 years and shows no sign of getting worse. Great show for ages 10+ (to everyone saying 13+ pre teens are definitely not as innocent as you think we are) - Unnamed Google User Remade

The Simpsons are the classic cartoon characters you known and love, Having great side characters and only going downhill after maybe the 20th season. Homer is a better dad than most and even in his most selfish moments, he knows how to put the people he loves first

I think the Simpsons is the best show ever.I like how their humor makes me wanna pee my pants cause of laughter.But why do people think it is a kids show

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 12th season. more.

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.

What's not to love? Great animation, top-notch acting, funny writing and humor, likable characters, it's easily even better than The Simpsons! I could rant about how much I ADORE this show till I'm 12! If you're older you'll enjoy this show less but you'll still like it!

An all-time classic, a blessed phenomenon for a show as heavenly as Spongebob Squarepants to ever exist in this universe. I pray that kids in the future get a chance to watch this great cartoon. I just wish they put an end to this show when they should. It's still running to this day but not as good as it was before.

While I have to agree that the later episodes are pretty awful, they are still fun to watch, even if they don't come close to the amazing first three seasons. Even seasons 4 and 5 are pretty good. Also, the movies are surprisingly good, which is something you don't expect from media franchises as big as Spongebob. The T.V. show also spawned comics, video games (which are also pretty good), mugs, the aforementioned movies, chia pets, toothpaste, and every other thing you can stick Spongebob's face on, with an actual official Spongebob car, which wasn't that popular, but it is still cool! I can respect The Simpsons for beating it out, but Spongebob will always be numebr one in my heart. I'm ready!

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!

It was actually awesome, it won't disturb you, and it had the best acting as a matter of fact for a non sitcom show, it was the best show ever made and now the best show around is Doctor Who.

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.

Glad one of the best is finally at the top. Breaking Bad has remarkable characters, twisted plot, and questionable morals : everything to keep a fan on the edge of their feet. Did you know the actor who played Jesse was an amateur? Fantastic. Bryan Cranston shows his evil side playing Walter White, an ego-filled genius. Also, unlike many shows, SPOILER WARNING it has hidden meanings. Every "villain" killed, Walt copies one of their traits without even realizing it (Krazy 8's crust-cut on sandwiches, Gustavo's folded towel-on-ground thing, and copying Mike's with-rocks drink, etc.) It's bloody brilliant.

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.

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.

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 : )

Jesus christ, how come such a masterpiece in regards to plotting, cinematography, character development and drama is placed after THE SIMPSONS! the animation is rusty and surpassed, the humor is crude and unfunny, it had its glory days, but those are long gone and don't pay the debts of the modern series, And even, THE WALKING DEAD! The show isn't bad, it also doesn't deserve third spot. Cliche, mediocre character development... The only one I see here deserving of the top three spot with GoT, is sherlock, the wire and of course, breaking bad. *Best fictional universe ever created is ASOIAF, how not to get involved...*

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 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 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.

Although its popularity and quality has declined over the years, TWD's first 6, 9th and 10th seasons are some of the best television of all TIME.

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.

It's not just a show about zombies. It's a show about the people. The viewers truly become connected to the lives of the characters and root for them to do their best and survive in this new, dangerous world. The moral issues the characters are out through raises questions viewers often ask themselves "What would I do in that situation" and the answers to some of those questions may be shocking. The zombies are well created, and the scenarios that make them unique are great, but the relationships between this group of strangling survivors is what makes the show different.

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 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 more.

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

Always love shows with real life dark humor such as this one, South Park doesn't really lend me the charm, Rick and Morty is still sci-fi. This show always stops me form switching through channels on T.V..

Overall, this show is very unique and funny. The earlier seasons (1-8) were when the show was at it's best. Seasons (9-13) still offer some unique, clever humor, but not as good as (1-8). Anything after season (13) has started to become lazy and unfunny. All-in-all, I would highly recommend this show for anyone that enjoys somewhat tasteless and politically-incorrect jokes.

8 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. more.

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 was the greatest T.V. show of our time it changed all T.V. shows it thrived for 10 years with an outstanding cast who made history by standing up and demanding equal pay of 1mil for all six of them has had an enormous amount of celebrities on the show as is still hilariously funny to watch this deserves to beat Family Guy while sometimes being funny can be very rude and offensive plus it is classic and never goes out of style the way Family Guy will. FRIENDS WAS AND STILL IS IN MY OPINION THE GREATEST T.V. sHOW OF ALL TIME!

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.

This show is my drugs addiction. I've watched the seiries exactly 9 times, and always get a good laugh, and sometimes even a little tears! This show is truely amazing, I wish it was higher, I think it should at least be in the top 5. Warner Bros, you've made yet another successful show!
I personally like Monica Geller. She's so funny! And she has the best "I know! " around

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

This show is the greatest show of all time. The fact that it's not even in the Top 5 is a disgrace. And what are SpongeBob and The Simpsons, the two most annoying shows I've ever seen, doing at #1 and #2? Do y'all know the definition of humor? Apparently not. The Office has the most genius character creations, amazing pranks, and a beautiful love story between Jim and Pam. Every single character in this show is funny. It's so simple: a paper company in the boring town of Scranton Pennsylvania, with a cast full of NOBODIES (and Steve Carell). And somehow they made it sooooo good.

For a show being based on a paper company, it's pretty interesting. The best aspect of this show are the characters, and how much you got to like them over a couple of seasons. Steve Carell did a excellent job playing as Michael, so did the other actors like Rainn Wilson, John Krasinki. The humor, the storylines and characters--it's just the perfect blend for a good heart-warming comedy show.

The office and friends are both so amazing. Friends came first, but the office is better written and less predictable. The characters are a tad more complex than the ones featured in friends making it a smudge better. The office is a masterpiece at heart and has a reasonable ranking on this list. ( It makes sense why Simpsons are N.1)

One of the smartest, funniest and most heart-warming shows of all time. This show gave people like Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski their whole careers and for a good reason! Definitely give this one a watch, it will be worth it!

10 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.

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.

This is completely absurd. Seinfeld is one of the wittiest, funniest television programs in the history of sitcoms and yet it stands at number five of the top 10 best television shows behind friends.

11 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 Big Ban Theory is my favorite TV show, but the looney tunes is standing on place 2. From The Big Bang love I Raj, from the Looney Tunes is that Speedy Gonzales

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

12 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.

One of the best shows on Netflix currently. The characters are great and well-written, the shows horror was actually pretty damn scary, and the 80s aesthetic is a nice nostalgic touch. It's a very unique horror-mystery show to binge watch.

This show is perfection with an amazing plot each season. It is original and sticks out compared to other shows. Watchmojo couldn't even find any mistakes in it (other than that one red M&M). Its for all ages for kids that love Netflix and for adults who want some of that nostalgia. Best. Show. Ever.

all of the TV shows on this list are good, but stranger things should be at least top 3, it is obviously better than spongebob. no hate to spongebob. and stranger things season 4 is coming out sept 30 so excited

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.

13 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 more.

Avatar is just so good, there's no other way for me to explain it. I've rewatched this series over and over. This is what a TV series should look like. The character arcs, the visuals, the dialogue, everything is just on point. Considering this is a kids show, that is just unbelievable. My personal favorite TV series of all time, Doctor Who is 2nd.

This show speaks for itself. It is masterful in every category. Only watching it can speak its praises adequately. Suitable for all ages and tastes.

Dang, I'm so surprised this show isn't higher, it's got a 9.1 on imdb, and that already sets it up in the top ten shows of all time. It's a storytelling, world-building masterpiece, and it knows how to deal with heavy topics without condescending to children (like death without yelling "I'm okay! ", genocide, spirituality, and political corruption). I never laughed so much as a viewer than when Sokka got high off of cactus juice, and even thinking about "Leaves From Vine" tears me up. This show basically raised me - it wasn't the kind of show I started watching when I was bored and commercials are on, it was a show where I memorized the run schedule and tuned in/ran to the television every day with the family. The animation and atmosphere is basically Miyazaki-level (well, considering it's a running show and not a feature), with great action and great heart. And yes, I'm marathoning it right now:

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.

14 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 more.

This show has such a dedicated, and enjoyable fan base, and the show itself has so many intricate, and small details that just bring so much quality to it. It’s definitely my favorite show of all time.

This show's attention to detail is absolutely incredible. Every single episode was interesting and captivating, and there wasn't one bad episode. All worth rewatching. Character development was on point, and the plot was just perfect. My brother and I quote this show in our everyday life just because.

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

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.

This show should've kept going! I can't believe it stopped! hopefully something like the next generation comes out because I NEED another show like this!

I love how something so regular can turn into some inter-dimensional crisis that gets resolved in 10 minutes. Each episode can stand alone and still be just as great. The show was amazing until that stupid dome idea.

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 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. more.

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

This show should be near the top. It is in fact the longest running sci-fi show of all time, and it's not hard to see why. So many great actors have played the popular character, from William Hartnell, to Tom Baker, to everyone's favorite David Tennant, etc. This series is just iconic and it's just an intelligent TV series, and I love it.

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 the Doctor!" This TV show is really good. I mostly just like re watching Matt Smith and David Tennant though. They're the best!

17 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.

Oh my goodness so good. Absolutely everything a TV show should have: great characters and character growth, amazing music, action, mystery, romance, adventure. Its impossible to name everything so good about this show!

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.


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

18 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 more.

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.

It became so sophisticated. The characters really developed from 1-dimensional to 3-dimensional. That theme song is great as well

I rate Adventure Time a 80+/10. I like Advneture Time. Even when I was 9. But "Another Way", well, that is an episode of Adventure Time that ruined half of Adventure Time. I like the episodes, although. I hate Another Way and Burning Low.

19 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.

Let's be honest The simpsons is Jack and Jill compared to this T.V. show what can I say the fanbase isn't terrible like many other shows (Steven Universe and Rick and Morty) Not only that the jokes are funny for (Big bang theory fans) their jokes can be understood by "dumb" and smart people I have to go now but this should be #1

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.

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 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.

I think everyone should watch this how. It has everything I want in a show like this! Family, demons, angels, witches, vampires, werewolves, EVERYTHING!

The Show has great storylines and you immediatly fall in love with the characters. And even after so many seasons it never gets boring.

This show is amazing! You have a wonderful storyline with outstanding actors portraying brothers that will get you hooked and draw you into their lives and make you feel as if you are a part of their family - as if you are living their lives with them. Classic good vs evil and how they get through the days fighting monsters, evil and trying to save the world. I have been watching Supernatural from the first day it began back in September 2005. Amazing show that continues to grab you and wrap you into their lives week after week. Good, bad, ugly, sadness and sometimes joy and happiness. Just life with the Winchesters. Fighting to save the world from monsters and evil. The character's are played by very talented and amazing actors who bring their characters to life and made the audience believe they are real and they go through some dramatic situations. Sometimes they come out on top and other times not so well. Just like real life situations but with a twist. With the amazing on and ...more

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!

This is one of those shows I overlooked and used to talk bad about, but once I started watching I got caught up with the the contrast comedy-drama (much like Scrubs) but the reason this is higher it's because it has such a great connection with my life, personality when it comes to love and relationships, and also because of the writers outstanding work on twists, flashbacks, so well planed/written, etc... Yep, I enjoy both South Park and How I Met Your Mother, problem?

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.

The earlier seasons left me clenching my stomach the entire time but the very last season was not good at all... They should not have had the wedding for an entire season... And the final episode was terrible... But if I am not looking at the last season then I can certainly say this deserves a higher spot than 9

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.

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.

I seriously do not understand why some people dislike the new Pokemon series I love them! Best wishes n is amazing! By the way y and x sounds amazing I believe that Pokemon is better than ever before in both the series and the games!

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!

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.

AHEM this deserves to be number one because literally EVERYTHING ABOUT IT IS AMAZING! Mainly b because morty is too cute and rick is hilarious,Jerry is dim witted but charming, summer can be relatable But will also admit to being a brat, so basically the same internet and Beth is so hardcore, every episode has its own unique storyline and honestly its personally my favourite cartoon ever

This show is truly fantastic. It is hilarious and heartbreaking all at the same time. Oh boy here I go killin again

Even though the show is only in its 4th season it is so well created and the humor and story is so complex it deserves to be high up on this list

How are south park, adventure time, gravity falls, and seinfield higher than this. This should be number 2 second only to the simpsons

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.

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.

Just another clone of family guy. Exactly the same but with cornier jokes, and it is a very racist show. It shouldn't be on this list!

Love it, Family Guy try to hard and sometimes goes to far, but not this. Roger is the funniest character

Actually, in terms of... adult imagery, American Dad has even MORE so than Family Guy.

25 The X-Files The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox.

Had only recently started watching this series on Netflix. This show still holds up above most others today (only thing that gives it away as an older show is the dated technology...corded phones, anyone? haha! ). Mulder and Scully are excellent characters and are quite entertaining to watch. David Duchovny is hilarious as Mulder and Jillian Anderson is perfect as his skeptic scientific-minded partner. Had recent interest to watch it for the UFO/paranormal/government conspiracy plots, but was surprised to find that this show has a lot more to it than that and really gets you invested in the duo. Some of my favorites so far have actually been the more comical ones ("War of the Coprophages" and "Bad Blood" for example).

Binged this with my brother, and we still make references to it at the most random times. Everyone should watch the X-files. It's necessary.

The X-Files is my personal favorite, but in terms of quality the following in no particular order merit inclusion on the top ten list;
Seinfeld, The Soprano's, Hill Street Blues, M.A.S.H., NYPD Blue, The Simpsons, Sex and The City, Mad Men, and House.

My favorite now is "The Walking Dead" we shall see after it's run if it achieves greatness?.

The BEST SHOW EVER AND ALWAYS WILL BE. No other show will have the actors that X-Files did, the writers (I mean come on what other show has taken risks and written such out there/off-the-wall stuff that Chris Carter has/did), the story lines, etc... You could go on and on about this show. It's the greatest of all time. And will forever be my love and favorite (when it comes to T.V. shows).
