Is This The Greatest TV Show of All Time?

“Rolling Stone” recently surveyed hundreds of actors, writers, producers, critics, and showrunners to come up with a list of ‘The 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.’

Any show from any era was eligible…but the end result proved once again that we’re in the middle of a pretty amazing time for TV, because even with 70 YEARS of programming, 26 of the 100 shows are still airing new episodes.

By the way, Garry Marshall was one of the voters. They say he sent in his ballot shortly before he passed away.

Here’s the Top 20:

1. “The Sopranos”, 1999-2007

2. “The Wire”, 2002-2008

3. “Breaking Bad”, 2008-2013

4. “Mad Men”, 2007-2015

10. “The Daily Show”, 1996-present

11. “Freaks and Geeks”, 1999-2000
