Entertainment Weekly’s List of the Top 100 TV Shows of All Time
If entertainment gurus pick the top 100 TV shows of all time and you’ve never even heard of the number 1 show, you feel a little out of touch. That’s what’s happened around here. Entertainment Weekly says “The Wire” is the greatest TV show of all time. “The Simpsons” ranks second, followed by “Seinfeld,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “The Sopranos.” Does this make you feel old? I know all about MTM and watched Seinfeld every now and then. But I have never watched “The Sopranos and rarely watched “The Simpsons”. I’ve never even heard of “The Wire”. It’s an HBO show about drug dealers. “All in the Family” is #6 on the list. A show from the early 60’s “The Andy Griffith Show” shows up at #7. “American Idol” ranks 53rd.
