I saw this list yesterday and thought it was interesting. Some surprises along the way. Did your favorite(s) make the list or get snubbed? I laughed a little when I saw Twilight Zone so high, but it makes perfect sense to me:
While I have watched a number of these shows, there are SO MANY I haven't watched. Someday when my kids aren't constantly taking over the TV I will have to get to business.
Now that you mention it, I am surprised the list does not have a single cartoon on it that I can see. I wonder if they were intentionally left off or didn't make the cut? As someone who adores animation, maybe we need your kids' version of this list. Justice for Spongebob!
Pre-2000 Simpsons, Futurama, the list goes on. Even a lot of kids shows also have some gearing towards adults now-a-days.
Critics infamously rate cartoons/anime far lower than the users, because critics measure on specific metrics that are geared towards film and tv not animation. Which is a shame, there are some awesome cartoons, both oldies and new aimed at adults too, like Rick and Morty, Archer, The Legend of Vox Machina etc that 100% deserves to be in the top 50.But also where is Stargate SG-1 or MacGyver those need to be in the top 50.
With only 5 shows pre 2000, and no mention of ground breakers like MASH or All in the family, it makes me wonder who the audience was for polling, and what were the parameters.I know, I know my old age is showing ...........lol haha
I was looking for "Andy Griffith"! I couldn't help myself and did some research on the cartoon front. I see that Meta Critic has two votes, one for critics ratings and one for audience, so I started there. That site was launched before 2010, so a lot of shows before launch do not have any ratings and, to Pete's point, I bet Mash and some others fall into that category, but how does that explain the inclusion of "Twilight Zone"? Well...put your coffee/tea down.Interestingly, scandalously(?), "Twilight Zone" does NOT have a rating on the Meta Critic site! The score is "TBD". [Insert soap-opera gasp.]I'll alert The Times. This data may have been rigged.
Andy Griffith was never NOT on in my house while I was growing up. I swear it was only thing my mom would watch.
Yes, 1 upvote for M*A*S*H* here! I even had the t-shirt!
How are these ones not on there?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kA1NT4I0s34https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p8oeiVDcx4https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AxiATxLofkAlso I think the "of all time" portion of this needs some re-thinking lol
This is an interesting list. I was a little surprised that The Walking Dead didn't make this list. Seems like one of those "big shows" with a massive, devoted fan base.The cartoon snub is just rude. And I'll second Monty Python.
Totally agree that MASH should be on the list - who are these people who vote!!!! And where is Line of Duty, The Golden Girls - love the fact Happy Valley made the list :-)

An interesting list, with some shocks and surprises (and some of those quite pleasant!)Glad to see Southpark and Spongebob are missing - hate those.Surprised to see The Office (US version, I assume?) and Stranger Things here. (OK, so ST is "ok", but to 50 of ALL TIME???)Agree about M*A*S*H. Surprised that Yellowstone didn't make it. I'd have also added The Last Kingdom, Outlander and Downton Abbey.There are a few shows that I feel started strong, but just went on too long so overall, they don't deserve a place. (Lost, Stanger Things - Maybe that's why TWD didn't make it?)Of course, it will always be contentious and that's why it's good that it's "Top 50" rather than "Top 5" or even "Top 10"....
