The Top Ten

1 The Simpsons 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 2019, making it the longest running animated sitcom. It is about a man named Homer ...read more.

In my generation, this was the Beatles of television.

Weird, I always thought The Simpsons was for all ages. The more you know I guess. - Qryzx

The old simpsons were the best ever. Don't judge it by the new episodes. Watch all of seasons 5-10 and you will agree.

Even those without accounts are right, The Simpsons wasn't really appropriate for families, it's a teenage show only for teenagers and adults, it's humor is dirty, but South Park takes the cake as the most inappropriate show of all time, People need to stop focusing on inappropriate shows, they probably just do it for the money. - nelsonerico

I absolutly love it but I have to agree the older ones were better. I especially like the treehouse horror Halloween specials that they do

The Simpsons RULES. It is hilarious and clever, and does not use shock humor, like Family Guy or South Park. And the world in this T.V. show is the greatest and most well-crafted T.V. show world of all time. How can you NOT vote for the Simpsons? It is the best! - soccerfan217

2 SpongeBob SquarePants 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. ...read more.

Wait, this should be in the top 5. What is Queer as Folk? This should possibly be the top T.V. show. He is a fun yellow sponge with a pink starfish best friend. - thowil

STUPIDEST SHOW?! It's obvious you've only watched the new episodes. - Goatworlds

Haha how could you now love him? His is a fun yellow sponge with a stupid pink starfish friend! I love him! And he should be in the top ten or twenty

My number 1 cartoon show. I've seen every episode from season 1-8

The new episodes are nowhere near as good as the old ones since the movie, Nickelodeon is running out of ideas.

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 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.

No.13. Are you kidding me. It deserves the top spot and way ahead of all these other shows (except Friends). It is the best show on television apart from The Wire. Please vote for this to get to the top.

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! - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

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. - nelsonerica

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.

Breaking Bad manages to do difficult techniques of complex storytelling and filmaking better than most high-production movies. It will go down as one the few truly perfect shows from start to finish. Each season manages to be better than the last, and every character is awesome in some way. Also one of the most quoteable shows ever.

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

GOT is the best show ever... How come it is placed so low on the list :(
My top 5 T.V. shows would be:
1. Game of Thrones
2. How I met Your Mother
3. Breaking Bad
4. Friends
5. The Wire - abhisheksrivastava

Seems like you haven't watch Breaking bad. It may comes after GOT for some, but never after How I Met Your Mother. - paragjyoti

I was looking for something to watch and seen Game of thrones was ranked 59th. Not sure if this site is even worth looking at anymore...

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!

Fantastic first 7 seasons.
Too bad Season 8 is one of the worst shows ever made. - JPK

I liked the first 3 episodes of season 8 but the other 3 were terrible - Dvafan2

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

What makes "The Walking Dead, " so unique is the fact that it isn't some cliche show where you can guess exactly what happens. You'll watch your favorite characters die, and weaker characters fail repeatedly. Of course there are zombies walking around looking for flesh, but that's simply a chore each of the characters must face now. "The Walking Dead, " exposes humanities imperfections in such a way that makes you feel for the characters so much more.

AMC created a master piece. The episodes totally hook you and once you watch it there is no going back. Second Season Oct.11 can't wait for it to come. - PePsMeX

It's not always hooking, it's scary and disturbing, it isn't as bad as Supernatural, but it can still disturb you and possibly scar you for life, but it deserves to be here since it's so iconic.

The walking dead is an amazing show, it has great characters with lot of depth and does well at keeping you watching the show with suspense, thrills, and anticipation of what happens next. Truly a great show

Its just a good show that's it.

6 South Park 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.

It's all about the scripts. Just like The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The animation is sub par and who cares? These guys can stay on top of current events and paste one of these episodes together in 2 weeks if they need to do so. The one theme that seems to resonate with this team of writers is the cult of personality. Those writers love to be mean to celebs. They stay fresh because their ideas come from current events. - mgenet

It's not about the kids, it's about the audience overall. Who cares if it's inappropriate for kids, why do you care so much? It's supposed to be for mature audiences only. - MontyPython

There is no way that friends and family guy top this south park is a masterpiece! - Chris-1

I love a lot of these shows but South Park has to be the best no comparison - OneWayStreet

Oh my god they killed kenny!
How can you not love this show?

This show is pretty cool

Kinda lazy and boring compared to the old Simpsons and especially Breaking Bad, but back then it was a decent show, except for it's adult humor it originally has.

Seasons 1-3: classic
Seasons 4-8: most of the best episodes here
Seasons 9-11: Still funny but characters are going downhill
Seasons 12-13: dark ages
Seasons 14-16: gradual comeback but not as big as before
Season 17: The absolute worst season ever

Take this off the list and put the Big Bang theory on the list

8 Friends 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.

Friends totally rocks! It's been years since it ended, but it's magic is still captures your heart!

Friends is like the best T.V. show ever no one can compete with friends...
Have seen each and every episode of friends like 5 times...

The greatest sitcom of all time, has surpassed Seinfeld in everything. Possibly the greatest T.V. Show of all time. Its impact on culture is immense, it really broke the mold in what sitcoms were.

Just because it is inappropriate doesn't mean it's a bad show. Like for example, Friends is a great show but it's inappropriate and Dora is a crappy show but it's kid friendly. No offense to Dora, it's probably better for the target demographic (2-5) - lelennyface

Get it on number 1 spot where it deserve, best T.V. show of all time. Other shows are also great but you can't change the fact thtat FRIENDS is the greatest.

9 Seinfeld 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.

Easily one of the best shows ever. I can watch the episodes over and over again.

Friends is not better than Seinfeld.

Show about nothing

No other show can hold a candle to Seinfeld - haineroid

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

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.

The office changed modern television. You feel all the characters there highs and lows it is such a fun show and is a classic. Id say I'm a bit obsessed as I have watched it 17 times and every time it is still funny

BEST SHOW EVER it pains me to see Friends above it because frankly Friends isn't a a very great show

RIP Michael Scott

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

This show is hilarious. Enough said. The only reason that more people don't like the show is because they aren't smart enough to understand the jokes.

The only reason people would say that the only reason people don't like the shows because I don't understand the jokes is because they're morons - ColtIsGod

12 Gravity Falls 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 - Hajj

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 - TheWiseOne

Love this show so much

13 Doctor Who 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.

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...

As a kid in the 70's this was my favourite show on T.V.. And now with the revival series starting in 2005, this is the best Sci-Fi on T.V. at the moment. The story is so complex and weaved only people who have watched all 5 seasons will understand this comment. Watching one episode will get you nowhere. The Doctor Rocks!

Even better when watched with the spin-off series Torchwood.

Doctor Who made me scared of my own shadow! (literally. go watch Silence in the Library) AMAZING! - MrHyde

Why is this not in the top 10? How did SpongeBob SquarePants beat this? There has been almost 53 years of The Doctor on T.V. screens, and I can't believe some people haven't heard of Doctor Who. Doctor Who is one of the best sci fi T.V. shows of all time. There are so many things to get out of Doctor Who, and it's not just the T.V. show. Anybody that doesn't like it hasn't found the episodes, novels, audio stories, or comics that would suit them best! For those who don't like it, after watching only 10 minutes of an episode, watch more! Watch at least the whole T.V. show, modern and classics, before you complain to me.

People have to know about the fan content that comes with this fandom. How many fan art, good cosplays, and even SONGS that people have written for this T.V. show. Without the fans of Doctor Who, this T.V. show wouldn't be alive today. When it cancelled in 1989, fans wanted it back. They got a movie in 1996 but it wasn't just enough for the fandom. Now, Doctor ...more

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

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!

AMAZING SHOW, PURE EPICNESS FROM START TO END. JUST AMAZING

Screw you Jacob you ruined everything

Lost was absolutely the best! It should be number one. It just kept you guessing at every turn and you really had to think about what you were watching at times or you would get LOST

The Awesomest Show Ever!
The Story Line is Epic and it got me wrapped like hell

No, no supernatural is the best show ever.
Comedy, botherly love good, evil come on.

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

Bender bends any other show

Bender is the best, he kicks butt!

I like a couple show better, but I voted this one cause it deserves to be MUCH higher. At the very least, in the top 20.

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.

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: - keycha1n

Don't know what to say except this is literally the best show of all time

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. - Anonymousxcxc

25 Sherlock (U.K.)

Sherlock is the best ever! No other show even comes close, save Doctor Who way in the distance. It can and will take over your life - all in under ten episodes. That takes serious skill. I love the action, the subtle humour, the plot, and the actors. Sherlock is such a fascinating, complex character who is hilarious and terrifying at the same time. Watson is not to be overlooked though; he's so normal and human compared to "our favourite psychopath" that the two make a hilarious duo.

The only downside? There are three seasons, three episodes per season, and about two years for the production of each series. I suppose that's what we have to go through to get good television. Oh, and the Reichenbach Fall will break your heart. It did mine.

Anyone who says South Park, Family Guy, or the Simpsons tops Sherlock has clearly never seen true entertainment.

This is number 1! The only reason it hasnt got there yet is because not enough people watch it! If you want to start a good seriess on netflix, here it is!

This should be in the top 10! - WeezaPeeza

This is a true modern epic. Terrific storyline, superb performances and repackaging of the quintessential detective that easily outclasses the big budget Hollywood franchise. Deserves to be much much higher

One of the best shows of all time. Teaches you some knowledge unlike dorky shows like The Simpsons. A black hole in their house! That show just gives kids wrong knowledge. If kids end up thinking why I don't have a black hole in my house, it's because of the show The Simpsons. That show isn't bad, but way too overrated.

This show sucks. I once tried to watch it and I just took it off cause I couldn't stand it anymore. IT SUCKS. It SHOULD be in the number 83. by the way, this is 33 not 83. But is should be. ENOUGH SAID! *Drop the mic.*

30 Looney Tunes Looney Tunes Looney Tunes is an American animated series of comedy short films produced by Warner Bros. from 1930 to 1969 during the golden age of American animation, alongside its sister series Merrie Melodies.

Why is this only at #28? It's better than the majority of cartoons that are above this in my opinion. - SamHalls2015

This is a masterpiece! If it weren't for this show I bet a third of cartoons today wouldn't exist. The show is filled with such memorable characters as bugs bunny, porky pig and my personal favourite, road runner. The jokes are top quality and it was done with such care that it inspired many to make animation. I hate to admit it but everything in the top ten is not even comparable to this.

Best show for all ages and it's better than shows like family guy and American dad etc. Because in those shows all they do is curse and screw around with drugs enough said.

Good clean cartoons unlike the junk they have today

Love this show! I even have a Jerry plushie I got from movie world! But I make Jerry act like a girl because he does look and seem like a female in the cartoon. I love the old tom and jerry but the new one is crap. I love the old one though

32 American Horror Story American Horror Story American Horror Story is an American anthology horror television series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

This show should be far higher. It's amazingly written and the acting is extraordinary. It gives us both terrifying concepts (but doesn't come on too strong when it comes to horror) and lovable characters that we're sad to see go. This show has it's flaws, but It's still amazing.

Each episode presents a stand-alone story in which characters find themselves dealing with often disturbing or unusual events, an experience described ...read more.

YES! THIS IS THE BEST SHOW!

The Twilight Zone (1960s) is easily the most original and entertaining series to ever air on television. It has always been my favourite, and nothing could possibly top it. Although I enjoy other shows on this list (Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, etc.) Twilight Zone is the peak of television, and it deserves to be must higher than 30. - Harry_Lime

X-file would have never existed without Twilight Zone. Original, allegoric, scary, and entertaining. Training ground for actors that went on to TV and movies. Rod Serling used Twilight Zone to illuminate our society; religious, political, sociological and always with a twist of irony.. - mgenet

it is unbelievable that there were 38 shows on this list and none of them was the Twilight Zone. Shame on you voters! -

35 That '70s Show That '70s Show That '70s Show is an American television period sitcom that originally aired on Fox from August 23, 1998, to May 18, 2006. The series focused on the lives of a group of teenage friends living in the fictional suburban town of Point Place, Wisconsin, from May 17, 1976, to December 31, 1979.

One of the best. Top 20 at least.

My All time favorite sitcom. This is one of the most underestimated tv shows around. Seasons 1-4 were the best. The cast made this series more than the decade did. I really loved this show. It was endearing, cutting edge, heartbreaking, crude and FUNNY all at the same time. Well rounded, ensemble cast, but in my opinion Topher Grace was the backbone of the seies. - danalana

Good show. - BigBoyDonald

You can tell a lot of heart and effort was put into the production of this show. It's a show you can watch at anytime, in any state of mind. I remember it being a popular show back in the mid 00's but not many people tend to recognize its greatness today.
The show definitely declined after Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace left, but to me this doesn't detract from the overall quality of the 8-season run.

Best show ever

This is the best show ever to grace the T.V. Screen, the fact that things like Hannah Montana and Sweet life on deck are even higher is just insulting

This is one BAD top-ten list. It's deplorable that Friends is at number two and this is 94. - Virtuoso

How is this a time 33 the sopranos Is the most influential T.V. show and the best it was the first time T.V. viewers said we have gone from a B&W wholesome sitcom with a famous comedian to a hour long drama with a dirty mouthed violent antihero also game of thrones is not what made HBO popular the sopranos is although I do like game of thrones I LOVE THE SOPRANOS

My favorite episodes are : the tape, the test, the remote, the fridge, the catfish, the choices, the fury, the faith, the money, the puppets, the curse

This is one of my favourite shows - Ar0nT0pTeNz05

This should be on 1 or 2 this show is so popular it not that much like steven universe but this show is fun for kids I'm glad someone made this amazing heart warming show

This show may not be number one but it is so funny! It tackles important topics like racial profiling without making it a drama, there are a variety of colours, sexualities and more, and there is an extremely powerful black gay police captain who is seen as a father figure. It's so smart and funny and... wow.

As much as I love Friends, Pokemon, Friday Night Dinner and Modern Family,
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is truly the best there is.

Very good, funny, and well written. - Catacorn

Okay what the hell? Arrow the greatest live action superhero television series ever and possibly on of the best T.V. series of all time is at 83? Come on what the hell! It deserves better each episode is intriguing and everyone on the show are awesome actors. This should at least be in the top 10.

Bessstt inn the wooorld - kedibey

Black people are bad so black mirror is bad because black = bad. I have the pass do not woryr - BigBoyDonald

The most unique and underappreciated show.The reason why its on this number proves that the world is full of average people who don't understand and appreciate such thoughtprovoking and realistic seasons.

One of the most well written and unique shows and also one of the most underappreciated. Every episode is like a movie with its own incredible plot, deep characters and disturbing, yet true messages. And the endings! Oh, they do a lot of work to make every single ending plot twist as grandious and pompesious as it is humanly possible. Seriously, if every single episode (and keep in mind, that each episode is a new story with new characters and made by a new writers and directors) was to air in theaters, I'd go and watch them all -> especially that Christmas Special, which is probably my favourite special ever, it is so mind-buggling and emotional. I love this show and I and almost enraged of how underrated it is and that it never appeared on this whole list (although Toddlers and Tiaras did, somehow). Go watch it. IT IS INCREDIBLE. - UniqueUniverse

43 Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation Parks and Recreation, informally known as Parks and Rec, is an American political comedy television sitcom starring Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope, a perky, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana.

How is Parks and Recreation this low?

Wow. This is too low man. Come on. This is one of the best show I have ever watched. And yes this isn't one of those fantasy shows (which I also love) but this should definitely be the top few.
This show is not given enough credit but everyone is entitled to their own opinions so there's that.
Anyway, for those who like comedies, they should definitely give this show a chance. Ben and Leslie are like the most awesome couple ever. And all the characters are really amazing as well.

I miss this show and the cast.

This is show is so damn funny. And it's not like stupid annoying humor that makes you want to put a bullet through your brain, it's fun smart enjoyable humor. You should seriously try it out.

Hello? Anybody there? Parks and Recreation is down here!

1: Characters. In MLP, there are no stereotypes. All of the characters are flawed, Good role models who are all very unique. Plus, it's likely you'll find at least one mane 6 pony you can relate to, and sometimes even more. None of the characters are Mary Sues, and they all have amazing designs and color schemes.

2: Lore. One of the things easy to overlook is how much backstory there is behind the show. Even though the holidays in our world are different from the ones in the pony world, they still have explanations. One example of this is Hearth's warming eve, which happens around the same time as Christmas in our world. It celebrates the founding of Equestria. Also, there's a backstory for everything, to what magic really is to why the ponies are colorful to why there are 4 different species, plus even more.

Dbz is amazing and can't be beat. It has been aired all over the world in many different languages. The story is well thought out and it isn't all just mindless punching. There is a reason the world loves this show so give it a chance.My family watches dbz all the time whenever we can so me and my siblings are super strong for our age because those are our heroes and they also throw in a few good training tips. I bet if more people bothered to look down here this show would get a lot more votes.

Way better than any cartoon

This show is a masterpiece that deserves a place in the top 20.

It's probably the most influential anime in existence, since not only was it the base on which shows like Naruto, Sailor Moon and One Piece were made, but also because it's still going strong, with its 30th anime anniversary this year and 32nd overall.

It has a great story, which follows the protagonist Son Goku and his adventures in order to become stronger and stronger, while fighting against evil forces. Goku has epic battles with the villains of the series, but also has great fights in regular tournaments, in order to achieve this job. The mastery Akira Toriyama and Toei put into this is extremely obvious. Goku vs. Frieza is probably the best fight ever in any cartoon made.

Dragon Ball also does not focus purely on Goku; it also shows the progress of his friends such as Krillin, Tien Shinhan, Piccolo, Vegeta, and even Yamcha. This is something you don't see often in superhero shows. Then you've ...more

47 Modern Family Modern Family Modern Family is an American television mockumentary family sitcom that premiered on ABC on September 23, 2009, which follows the lives of Jay Pritchett and his family, all of whom live in suburban Los Angeles.

Too funny not to watch

Modern Family has been to date one of the best shows I have seen, not just based on its hilarious comedy, but also because of the characters and what they go trough together. Feel-good show.

This show is hilarious, with something for almost everybody. It won all of its Emmy's for a reason, you know. It has most (if not, all) forms of humor. All of the actors are great, even if sometimes it feels like things are over exaggerated. I love how the plot lines connect through the families. Everybody should watch this show at some point. Even you, person who scrolls down past this category. - TheWiseOne

Ahh, I love this show. It never fails to put a smile on my face. It's humorous, funny and entertaining. You become so in love with the characters, you feel like they're your second family. Got to love Modern Family.
