    I agree Joe. "Greatest" is subjective.

    I only agreed with 13 on the list.

    Yeah, these lists are always subjective. I haven't seen them all as I'm outside the demo of some of them, but they had many of my favorites. I always end up disputing the order.

    All of my faves are on the list but, IMO, the order is way off on a lot of them. Still, these lists are fun and always stir up a good conversation.

    Whenever I see lists like this, I really wish they would limit the "best of" or "greatest" to genre or category. Its just too hard to compare different types of shows. I would argue that Frontline has consistently been the best quality TV show for a couple decades now. But since its not a TV drama or sitcom, it would never make this kind of list.

    Any list that has the golden girls and the jeffersons in the top 100 was really reaching to fill a list.

    Lots of great shows.

    Since we are all so different, there are of course some shows we would never watch, and some I love that others would never watch. Overall, a cool list.

    And of course, if you do not have HBO - you never watched #1. LOL!

    Hard to disagree with the top three....for sure. I'd have Breaking Bad #1, sorry Breeze :poke:, over the other two because that show almost impossibly got better and better each season.

    yep, very subjective, but i was thrilled to see Mad Men in the top 10. I loved that show (even though the last season sucked)

    I tried watching "Mad Men"..........god, was that boring !....Evening Soap Opera that's all.
    Gary Sanders Show was very good.
    Letterman was my favorite late show guy --- but to rank it that high ?.....he lost ratings all the time.
    I've NEVER seen Breaking Bad.......I think I watched a minute, once ?
    Sopranos........well you knew it would be up at the top....
    Same with Seinfeld.

    Hard to pick an order, the top three should be tied for first.

    What, no Dexter?

    No Weeds, either.

    Glad to see Mystery Science Theater was on the list. That show produced many a literal ROFL.

    Agreed, Breeze! My bride and I comment MST3K-style as we enjoy Redbox movies at home.
    We would probably do this in the theater as well, but we can't hear each other with the film's volume cranked so loud nowadays!
