I was looking up some info today when I came across this Wikipedia entry for TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time. I have to admit that I was surprised by how few of the shows on there are ones that I watched regularly. They listed Seinfeld at #1, which I think is a great choice.
But besides that one, I only watched seven others with any regularity: The Sopranos, Cheers, Friends, ER (early seasons only), Roseanne, The X-Files, and The Cosby Show. As a result, I really can’t say much about whether or not the TV Guide list is good one or not. I mean, it seems okay since there aren’t any reality or game shows on there. I for one have never found that watching people compete for caribbean cruises or other prizes makes for compelling television, but what do I know.
Anyway, take a look at the list and tell me if you agree with the editors’ choices on that one!
