What are your top ten all time favorite TV series?


Wow  we have covered quite a number of shows old and new in this group.  Makes me wonder, after all of the years and all of the shows, which ones you have loved above all others.  



Feel free to say why or comment if you would like to..



No restrictions.. comedy, drama,  reality, whatever you like.

 Finally, someone listed The Carol Burnett Show. So many memorable moments - like the Gone with the Wind sketch when "Scarlett" came down the stairs with the dress made from draperies, rod and all!

Thanks for reminding me.

 

Moonlighting - Loved it

 

Mickey Mouse Club - hurried home from school to watch that

 

And to go back even further and give away my age,  I actually remember watching Howdy Doody on one of those huge tall cabinets with the small little screen back in the late 40's.

Also during teen age years, Chicago Bandstand ( I lived in a Chicago suburb) and the other Bandstand out of Philly, can't remember the full name.

Bet no one remembers 'Waterfront'.  It was about a tugboat that happened to bear my name.  It was on at 10PM back in the early 50's so I hardly ever got to stay up and watch it.

Golden Girls- I can't go to sleep at night without singing along to the theme. Hallmark Channel shows back to backs from 12:00-2:00 AM. I fall asleep to this show.



Downton Abbey



Hawaii 5-0- both original and new series



Blue Bloods



Rizzoli & Isles



Big Bang Theory



Dance Moms- no judgement, please. Everyone is fascinated by train wrecks, right? crying Nancy



Posted by catwoman500



No judgments  LOL



I am adding The Honeymooners to my list..  that was an incredible show for the talent of the actors and the skimpy little set they worked from all those years..  my dad and mom loved it and I watched with them as a kid..

My all time favorite show is "Hill St. Blues" because I've always loved police dramas. This show was one of the first to combine drama/comedy into each episode,shows were well written,realistic portrayal of the cops' daily routine,loveable cast of characters. One of the show's head writers,David Milch is from my hometown,Buffalo,NY,he's done well writing other shows e.g. NYPDBlue 



My other favorites in no particular order



The Mod Squad



Law&Order-the original



Downton Abbey



Streets of San Franscio



The Big Bang Theory



Alias



Leave It to Beaver



All In The Family



St Elsewhere
